I'm considering moving away from Financial Controller (FC) to Operations Manager roles. There are lots of transferable skills as FC roles are operations focused. I'm curious if anybody has come across a hands on Bootcamp type training where one could come up to speed relatively quickly? As there are a wide variety of Operations Manager roles out there it would need to be general and cover the key core requirements for an operations manager role. Elements I'm particularly interested in are project management tools, latest presentation formats, CRM system, productivity tools, best practice procedures, etc. All of this can be found online via job descriptions, but doing a course would be more fun, motivating and give a taste for whether this is a suitable next career option.
I'm not aware of an equivalent one for a Controller but I think over a few week period I could teach a person how to do this job (to a basic level of course - getting good at the job requires time and practice) and how to get an interview. This type of training would be similar to what's covered in a job handover where a new employee spends up to a month with the incumbent. Of course the person would need an understanding of accounting for this to work. Operations doesn't have the same technical requirements so should be easier.
I look forward to comments. Thanks🙏
