PROJECTSWe work in a system approach
Below you will find 10 projects that we have compiled based on our knowledge in the past two years along the needs of our customers. We would be happy to talk about or provide references of any of the topics.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN-DEPTH
Unlike traditional PM trainings, our training focuses on acquiring the approach of project management. In order to achieve this, we need to develop the hard side, such as methodologies, techniques, specific examples and the soft side including the human factor, motivation, communication and the values and thinking behind the methodologies.
BEYOND SALES TECHNIQUES
There is no such thing as a resourceless person, there can only be resourceless conditions. It is solely a question of being able to reach a state where I can operate my existing resources (abilities, skills, knowledge) or I can freeze, lose the momentum and end up in the usual operational mode. This advanced level training helps remove personal blocks.
DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERSHIP - MANAGEMENT 3.0
Management 3.0 teaches a new approach. We need stable, credible, and brave leaders who are characterized by courage, self-reflection, self-knowledge, and skills to manage complexity and enable groups and individuals. We offer hands-on tools in various leadership topics.
Practical and effective help in different roles. Scrum Master, Product Owner, Chapter lead, Agile coach, Lean, Kanban, Scrum and Scrumban methodologies.
AGILE VALUES, AGILE MINDSET
What is agile?
What is this concept doing here and why do we keep talking about it? Where is it coming from, where is it going? Complexity, the evolution of humans and organizations, the values of agile, specific learning in everyday life.
DEVELOPING COOPERATION BASED ON SELF ORGANIZATION
Groups capable of self-organization with proactive, self-managing members – that’s what every organization dreams about. How can we prepare a team for empowerment?
NVC AND ASSERTIVENESS IN ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE
These two concepts mean, on the one hand, a new way of thinking and a new approach, and, on the other, practical communication techniques. We have designed a process to integrate this approach into organizational culture and everyday life.
PURPOSE-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION / TEAM
Why are we doing what we are doing and what is driving us? What is the purpose beyond the individual that is worth working for? If we only focus on profit, we burn out really fast. Let’s connect people to a mission (to the Why?), to the basic values and principles of the mission (the How?), the goals arising from them (What?), and mostly, to themselves (Who am I? What is my task?).
EMOTIONS - WHAT WE DON’T TALK ABOUT AND WHAT MOVES EVERYTHING
How are emotions created? What can we do to react to the situations of our lives freely? Being able to manage our emotions consciously is key to the efficient operation of all of our skills.
We have to develop our mental stamina just as we develop our physical stamina. The best way to prevent and manage burnout and stress is to train ourselves both physically and mentally.
WE DON’T HAVE ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL TRAININGS
Processes customized for organizations, groups, and individuals
I. We gather information
We ask questions, discuss, interview, observe, and conduct surveys (tests, questionnaires). Our purpose is to understand the present state and what the real requirements and goals are.
II. We build processes
We negotiate approaches, methodologies, and ideas. We recommend paths to reach the goals. We follow the path agreed and continuously give and require feedback in the meantime to make the necessary adjustments.
III. We support integration
We sustain the effectiveness of our processes with different methodologies and help the integration of knowledge into everyday life. We observe and measure results during and at the end of the process and restart or complete our operational cycle accordingly.
In the focus of in-Depth
The goal of our agile team is to ensure that the agile method creates value for the organization and the people working there. We believe that this way of thinking and operation can create a more human, efficient, and modern working environment.
New Organizational DNA
What drives your actions? What’s an organization, why are we together, and what motivates us? Being aware of the mission strengthens the individual’s connection to themselves, to the group, and to the organization. This lays cooperation on a new foundation.
We are experts of improvisation, playback theatre, psychodrama, drama pedagogy, and organization constellation. Dramatic methodologies turn learning into an experience, deepen group processes, and ensure a more comprehensive understanding of certain topics.
It is important to distinguish between being agile and doing agile. In our experience, several companies, mostly big, multinational ones, change to agile by solely introducing elements of agile operation, i.e. the do agile. Real results, however, can be achieved by introducing the agile mindset, which will trigger agile operation (i.e. being agile).
- Why has agile become so popular?
- What are the main values and characteristics of agile operation?
- How can a person/ team/ organization profit from it even if they have already changed to agile or even if they never want to?
- How can we step out from the negative spiral (e.g. work overload, burnout, bad market reputation, decreasing business results) and step into a positive one in a (self) sustainable way?
TURN TO US IF…
- You would “only” like to familiarize yourself with this way of thinking, this way of operation, and specific techniques
- You don’t (necessarily) want to change to an agile company form but you would like to apply the values of this mindset in your company to increase employee satisfaction and efficiency
- You already adopted the agile methodology and you would like to develop or experience some hiccups in your everyday lives
- You would like to test agile operation on a smaller group
- You would like to operate according to agile methodology, benefit from its advantages and/or use some elements of its toolkit
- You would like to train future leaders, so you would like to introduce agile and its specific tools into your leadership culture and work

IF WE WANT REAL CHANGE
New Organizational DNA
We look for sense and patterns in the world surrounding us instinctively, it is our basic human need from the moment we are born. It is worth considering what we are doing here together and give the common work some real sense. Finding harmony creates inner stability and real commitment.
The process aims to explore the higher sense of a business team or organization which can be grasped by each member. We tread the path to the mission of the group by identifying individual missions.
- Culture survey
- Individual missions
- Team mission
- Basic principles and values of teams/organizations
- Breaking down missions into goals
MAKING IT HAPPEN
in-Depth STAGE® WORKSHOP
The applied techniques may be used as entire training processes or as half-day or full-day modules within the framework of other trainings.
The method makes raising awareness and practicing more efficient and provides a better view of what areas need more work.
APPLIED DRAMATIC TECHNIQUES
Drama pedagogy, improvisation, playback theatre, psychodrama, and organization constellation ensure that we pay attention to the sensitivity, needs and development levels, current mental and physical state, and development needs of individuals and groups.
An essential bonding element of all methods is the story, whose significance and function is, among others, to clarify identities, make order, and create a vision of the future. The goal is to have an overview of our operation, to process and understand our own stories which are normally hard to access, and by doing so, trigger some movement and change.
Drama pedagogy and improvisation operates the game with the safety and protection provided by the roles. Participants can gain experience which might be relevant to their own lives as well by walking in somebody else’s shoes. (We play roles in THEIR stories.)
Playback theatre uses the power of storytelling and studying while protecting participants, which originates from the two-dimensional participation structure of being both active and passive.
The storyteller volunteers to step out from anonymity into the limelight, where the game master creates a confidential and protected situation. Personal utterances in this situation enable the players and the viewers to achieve ownership. (We play roles in YOUR story.)
During psycho drama sessions, it is reliving and identifying that help us understand hidden connotations, motives, motivations, and inner happenings. The depth of involvement is ensured for participants by collectivism. (We are all ME).
During organization constellations we examine hidden processes moving organizations in the background from the point of view of leaders and owners. (We are all PARTS OF ME).
