In 2009, Jethro-LMI was brought into being internationally recognized institution and established its head quarter in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to reach Sub-Saharan region in Africa. Its founders believed that proven and practical leadership skills and competent management/administration practice would be the most important precondition for the development and restructuring. That is why they set up affiliation with internationally recognized professionals’ development institutions to provide practical knowledge, skill and experience in general management and leadership issues to development actors.
In the first few years of its existence, Jethro-LMI provided International certifications for Business and Public organizations. From 2011 onwards by adopting other courses and services the Institute gradually started to gain momentum and expand its target groups.
At present, the Institute serves the public sectors, non-profit organizations, international organizations, small and medium-size enterprises as well as professional associations.
The Institute was strongly supported by James Madison Univerity’s Institute of Certified Professional Manager, U.S.A. With the help of their assistance
it became possible to transfer profound practical knowledge in General Management and Leadership skill development for high-profile individuals who came from different sectors and backgrounds. Having such starting position, Jethro-LMI manages to overcome the first phase institutional development and blossomed into a professional and reliable organization within a short period of time.

Today, its portfolio includes professional international certifications, short-term training courses and provides consultancy & research services on many issues.
