2019 ARLM master class, Penang

The Crawford Fund is pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the sixth Agricultural Research Leadership and Management Master Class planned in Penang, Malaysia, commencing on Sunday 03 November 2024.

This Master Class, offering advanced training in research management, is now acknowledged globally as an outstanding initiative that enables managers at all levels to grow the skills and practices required to lead successful agricultural research for development.

The purpose of the Master Class is to provide an opportunity for both experienced and emerging research leaders to take time out from their busy schedules to reflect on their roles in managing research. They will develop their own management models and learn new skills immediately applicable in their places of work.

We thank our partners the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) for their support for this five-and-a-half-day training initiative.

This will be the 6th Master Class on research leadership, and the proven program will include modules on:

  • Developing your management and leadership models/practices.
  • People and team management.
  • Effective communication, conflict resolution and performance feedback.
  • Strategy and strategic planning.
  • Global drivers and issues in agricultural research for development.
  • Cultural impacts on leadership and management.
  • Project management (including finances, evaluation, and planning techniques).
  • Individual career management and professional development.

All sessions are interactive and led by experienced practitioners. This is a hands-on experience providing ideas that can be immediately applied by participants to improve their practice.

If you are interested in attending, initial contact should be made before 5 August 2024 with the Master Class leader, Shaun Coffey via email – [email protected] Places will be in high demand so early contact is advised.
