We then use training sessions and workshops to share this knowledge both with project leads, sub-project leads and project team members, as well as with project owners responsible for contracting out projects and line managers designating employees to work as part of the project team.

In every aspect of our consulting role, we are committed to the standards specified by recognized institutions such as the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Projektmanagement e.V. (GPM), the International Project Management Association (IPMA), and the Project Management Institute (PMI).

Coaching

Professionalism at work means doing the right things in the right way. This is an ambitious goal, but also a realistic one. In order to meet these requirements, we provide specialists and managers with the opportunity to confront the specific challenges of their professional role.

Coaching fosters personal development in a professional context. Coaching is a particularly intensive form of learning and allows you to make substantial improvements to your working practices.

The main function of coaching off-the-job is to provide the opportunity to reflect on and plan alternative courses of action. The coaching process is at its most effective when complemented by coaching on-the-job during which the coach accompanies the coachee in real-life situations to deliver relevant feedback.
