MPM Program | Course 15

ALFA's Margin & People Management (MPM) Program is designed to provide lot feeders and industry professionals with a deeper understanding of how to manage a modern feedlot business.

Established in 2008, the Program now boasts a strong alumni network of over 400 lot feeders and industry professionals, many of whom are now prominent industry leaders.

The MPM Program sessions covers topics such as basic financial margin management, time management, setting priorities, human behaviour and how to work more effectively with other people, especially in difficult situations.

The Program is run annually over several months, delivered through 4 x 2-day training sessions to a maximum of 12 participants. The group gathers three times in-person for the sessions delivered by a range of facilitators; the final session is a feedlot tour, where participants hear from Feedlot Managers who have graduated from the Program and other prominent industry leaders.

The program is in high demand each year, and we encourage feedlots to reserve a position on future programs to avoid disappointment.

Session 1: People & General Management

5th March - 7th March 2024

MPM Course 15 kicked off last week where the group met in Sydney for the first time. Their first challenge was an escape room, where half the group had to work together to problem solve their way out of a "lift in a burning hotel", while the other half needed to unravel the riddle of Jumanji before they were wiped out by a jungle based hazard.  

The group then had a two day workshop on People & General Management. Day 1 was Disc Profiling with Create Learning which opened the their thinking to identify the differing behavioural and communication styles of others, developing their confidence and self-awareness to modify behaviour to based on other people's style.

Day 2 built on these skills and awareness with Australian Institute of Management's High Performance Teams which covered practical strategies to develop team cohesion and a high performance culture.

It was a busy few days forming new networks and gaining new skills. The group will meet again in Sydney in May for their Industry & Advocacy Overview and Finance Fundamentals session.
