A management career involves a multitude of professional demands: whoever wants to pursue such a career must fulfil a range of requirements. The climb from line-management, High Potential or being a technical specialist up towards a general management position needs to be well prepared. In addition to a general understanding of all business aspects, what is additionally required is strategic thinking, customer focus, strong leadership and financial management. This is where our programme scores: it illuminates the manifold conditions, tasks, tools and skills of modern management from varying perspectives. Besides a holistic perspective and the technical know-how within the diverse areas covered, we introduce a wide scope of instruments for practical, everyday implementation within the four sessions.


The entire programme is interactive. Using numerous working assignments, decision-making situations and case studies, you are trained to cover all the important facets of modern management, transforming practice-related and relevant tasks into viable solutions whilst examining the overall impact on sustainability.
You get professional, pre-structured methods, checklists and tools that you can then use within your own companies.
This is all done with an interesting and distinct group of participants, which also provides numerous networking opportunities.
