AMI’s Impact

AMI is pioneering a new approach to skills development – one that actually works. Over 97 percent of AMI users apply what they learn at work, and 86% report improved effectiveness, according to our recent impact survey.

The December 2015 Impact Survey collected data from the 1,500+ managers, entrepreneurs and professionals who have participated in AMI’s structured blended-learning programmes, as well as the larger group of over 10,000 who have taken our courses. Among the former group, 72% reported an improvement in key management skills after engaging with AMI and 85% of entrepreneurs reported an improvement in operating efficiency. 67% said AMI was either much more (35%) or more (32%) helpful than any other training provider they had experienced, while 15% said this was the first time they had accessed formal business training or education.
