Page 2: The Kingfisher Management Development Scheme
The KMDS represents a key investment by the organisation in its human assets. The scheme takes high-potential graduates who want to make a career in retail, and provides them with a range of experiences and training designed to support their development to become senior managers within seven to ten years of joining the Group.
The main objectives are:
- to support Kingfisher’s intention to fill 80% of senior management posts with internal candidates by 2005
- to develop a cadre of managers who see themselves and are seen to be a resource to the Group
- to develop managers who will add value to the Group’s operations at every stage of their career, not just on completion of the course.
