Leading effectively as an expert - Practical training program

Experts carry the professional know how of organisations and gain more and more importance in nowadays knowledge society. Specialists contribute to organisational goals as much as hierarchically high positioned top managers. But the experts’ development – concrete careers and appropriate development and qualification offers – often have less focus than line managers’ development.

With three modules our certification course communicates and trains the very competencies experts need to execute plans and projects across different departments.
