Custom Tailored for lasting Company Development.

Methodical Approach

Our programs are highly customized. Experienced faculty can answer all of your questions. Our clients appreciate our flexibility in getting to know them and the specifics of their business.

In our development programs we use:

Action Learning

Participant experience and concerns are built into program activities, so learning follows from practical example and with close fidelity to the special characteristics of the company and the industry.

Group and Project Work

Team formation in the context of the development program: during the seminar modules, and between them, international, intercultural groups work on program topics – theory and practice. Learning transfer already happens during the program.

Case studies, Real Life Cases

We work with "mini cases," a highly effective, dynamic form of case study learning. In a short time, participants gather real-life cases and insights from the full spectrum of company activities. In addition to developing knowledge, case studies generate solutions to our client's concrete questions.

Implementation Tools for Daily Business

So that the compiled knowledge can be used smoothly on the job, our participants receive company-specific tools that have been successfully tested in practice.

Linked to Participant Experience

We work with the experience of the participants. Especially with heterogeneous, international groups, this link expedites learning.

Use of New Media and Learning Methods

Knowledge Exchange Platforms

A learning platform is built on the client's Intranet, and the in-company program is steered from it. Participants visit the platform to keep up with the program, stay in touch and exchange experience.


E-learning supports classroom learning: content preparation, follow-up to each module and in-depth coverage of individual topics.

Video Conferences

Video conferences support distance learning when a group meeting is too expensive or too time-consuming.

The seminars thus help the participants improve their management qualities and develop their organization.

Learning Transfer: Follow-up, Controlling

Education and training are essential tools to implement a company's strategy because only a specific capacity development provides the resources required to ensure the implementation of the corporate strategy and the achievement of corporate objectives. Our projects aim to make a sustainable contribution to our customer's strategy implementation. Therefore, measuring the success of our seminars and programs is of great importance to us.

Transfer Check within the Modules

The modular structure of our management programs allows an early transfer check at the beginning of the sequential modules.

Transfer Check through Project Work

In order to increase knowledge transfer, individual or team projects can be positioned in between the modules. The project work can also include a transfer check.

Transfer Check in Daily Business

A close cooperation with our client's human resource department and line management is important to us in order to obtain appropriate feedback regarding the successful transfer of the seminar content into daily work. After all, the participant's development progress, with regard to the specific task, is the only thing that counts. Another advantage of transfer checks in daily business is the increased involvement of line managers in the design of development programs and performance measurements. This allows line managers to support the participants in his implementation steps, which further increases the chances of a successful implementation.
