NAB Owner Manager Program Partnership

If there is one thing constant in the current business environment, it is change. Old business models, approaches, supply chains and staff practices don’t always work as the world shifts. There has never been a more important time for business owners to rethink and revamp, adapt and transform to build a business in a changing world.

The Owner Manager Program (OMP) is a unique program that forces business owners to step back, analyse and adapt every aspect of their business to ensure they’re “on the money” – particularly as conditions change.

NAB Support

NAB previously offered their business banking customers a limited number of part scholarships for the Australian Owner Manager Program. This program is currently on hold.

As Australia’s biggest business bank, NAB has been acutely aware of the challenges facing the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector. NAB recognises the critical role these businesses play in the health and growth of Australia’s economy moving forward and are keen to support these businesses.

NAB investigated a range of options and mechanisms to help busy business owners improve and develop themselves and their businesses in a constantly changing world. After rigorous testing, NAB decided to support clients to undertake the Owner Manager Program (OMP). OMP has produced enormous benefits for those NAB customers who have participated so far. It provides owners with the critical skills and network to help them really challenge and transform their business operations moving forward.

Business owners that participate in the OMP are performing well but have a recognition that they and their business can always improve and do better. Whether it is growth, acquisitions, new markets, succession, exit or owner life balance, the OMP has proven itself on every metric.

About the Owner Manager Program

The Owner Manager Program is designed for and exclusive to the owners of mid-sized Australian businesses ($3m - $100m).

OMP is a unique residential face-to-face business education improvement program that follows a proven philosophy and process that has been tested and refined for more than a decade. The program grew out of work at the University of Queensland and the Icehouse (Australasia’s leading business accelerator). 

The core of the program includes five x 3-day residential monthly workshops where business owners are challenged by their peers, facilitators, and subject experts. Click to learn more.
