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.
