Why Is This Training Program Different?

  • Some of the challenges you are confronted with are not solvable using ‘normal approaches’, standard methodologies and tools. In fact “Business Transformation”, when looked at in its full maturity, is a very broad domain.
  • The full program follows a logical pattern, to help you keep your overview and to connect the dots.
  • We give you some pre-read work and ask you to prepare your own case relating to the specific training you will be attending.
  • We give you a detailed syllabus, but only show the models ‘real live’ that will help you to get your head (and hands) around the topics you are facing.
  • You will also learn how your peers in other organizations are doing and what they face.


Simply put:

We look at your challenges in a down-to-earth and pragmatic way, allowing multiple angles, and using the experience of the participants and the trainer.

Most of all, we liberate what is inside you, but what you don’t yet understand or show, in order to deal with the topics at hand.
