This keystone course was preceded, in the Curriculum Path, by a multitude of short T&D Modules to bring the learners up to a common point. NS 1251 then engaged the 20 learners in a systematic buildup of their knowledge and skills in team leading/team building, business case and business plan development, financial planning and analysis, time management, risk analysis and management, and group process decision-making.
