AMP Brochure
CTM's Advanced Management Program has been designed to give high potential employees the skills needed to look outside their established roles in order to identify potential disruptors and then use their communication skills to articulate the impacts of such disruptors to management, customers, peers, and other employees.

Advanced Management Program (AMP) is a 5-day open-enrollment continuing education program which focuses on providing high potential employees the skills needed to identify disruptive elements and then communicate the impact to management, customers, and employees.  In an increasingly digitized and networked world, technologies often jump traditional industry boundaries and by understanding adjacencies disruptors can be identified early and then communicated in a way that allows actionable responses to be initiated.  The program provides high-potential leaders with the tools and perspectives needed to manage and lead in an environment transformed by new business models, new operational procedures, and the convergence of telecommunications, technology, and entertainment. Download AMP Overview
