Technology Group: PAN-European Executive Development Impulse

We are very proud of this program because it solved the transfer issue and actually made a difference. We were able to implement an effective combination of various development methods beyond traditional classroom training – with a focus on implementing development in the working environment.

Even before Corona, the focus of the methodological implementation was digital and remote, because the participants were scattered internationally: We were using a training app, coaching via video system, online assessments and use of our AC app during Development audits. After all, the program was so well received that the previous European focus was expanded – Japan took notice and the program is being rolled out globally.
