New Year 2017

Project Report: Culture Development

“Discovering and pro-actively designing business culture

To meet tomorrow’s market requirements and striving for improvement and quality to be anchored with the company’s DNA, perfume manufacturer Mäurer & Wirtz started a thorough leadership and business culture development project.

Project Report: Train the Trainer

“Train the trainer workshop at Kiekert”

How does a company, which as a leading innovator in its industry always depends on the latest findings and knowledge growth within its teams, departments and locations, ensure that the expertise of its employees is always on the cutting edge?

Professionalisation of HR work

“When SMEs become global players”

Many SMEs have grown from small and medium-sized enterprises into high-tech companies and global players in recent years. Unfortunately, their personnel and organisational development often lags behind the development of the company as a whole, thus slowing their further growth.


“Train large groups of people in a short time”

How can we train dozens, hundreds or even thousands of employees or clients within a short time? Companies often ask themselves this question when introducing new procedures or solutions in their organisation or on the market. Thanks partly to IT, there are very efficient ways to manage this.

Leadership & Management

“Strategy alone is not enough – Mediocre or the best?”

Why are some companies mediocre and others leading in their field? For example, when it comes to revenue or income? Or service or innovation? Is it to do with strategy? Usually it isn’t! It is usually to do with their corporate and management culture.

MTI News

“International Reports”

This edition of our international reports offers you a thorough insight into the daily routine of an intern at MTI. In addition, we inform you about our business talk in Shanghai on the subject of “Managing Virtual Teams”.
