It is designed to provide a challenge to the student, which will demand and foster, both tacit and explicit learning about vision in leadership and audacity in its execution. Learning is experiential and based on participants’ actions in resolving a challenge that has been agreed with the unit chair and is consistent with the aims of the unit.  It draws on contemporary models and theories of leadership and leadership development that are international, both in their derivation and in their application.
