With the increased speed at which the world is changing, companies wishing to be competitive have to be improving continually. This applies to people too. One of the most important competencies in the 21st century is the ability to learn. What does this really mean?

Technological development, competition and the entry of a new generation into the labour market is dictating that the use-by date of knowledge and skills is becoming ever shorter. Learning is expanding beyond the classroom and strict time parameters. The responsibility for our own learning process is changing. If, previously, the teacher or lecturer was at the centre of teaching, then today the person learning is in the deciding role, with their proactivity, motivation and openness. This is a completely new way of thinking and a paradigm change.

How do we increase our organization’s readiness for today’s challenges? How can we develop an organization where learning is a part of daily life and culture? How do we make learning meaningful to the maximum degree? How do we evaluate the return from learning and build a system which provides a real influence on achievement? 

Target audience: Managers and personnel directors, those who are responsible for the development of an organization and team development.

During the course, participants will:

  • challenge their pre-conceptions about teaching and learning; 
  • evaluate the knowledge and skills that are critically important to their organization;
  • find out ways of infecting new employees with learning and how to motivate long-term employees to develop;
  • receive practical tools and suggestions to diversify teaching methods and processes;
  • acquire modern instruments for analysing employee achievement and errors.

Particular attention will be focussed on organizational errors as a valuable resource, the imitation of work situations for developing skills, as well as the opportunity to learn from other fields.

Aim of the course: To provide knowledge about principles and guidelines which create a contemporary and effective learning system within a company.


  • evaluation of a specific company’s teaching processes and system;
  • finding out about new opportunities;
  • practical ideas and steps towards the improvements to be achieved.
