Business skills

Aside from interdisciplinary skills, leaders and employees also require specific settings and roles. For example, sales employees deal intensively with topics related to selling and negotiating – from building relationships to leading difficult negotiations. Moderation, presentation and project management skills, on the other hand, play an indispensable role in working world of most employees – not to mention agility and innovation.

Every company wants creative employees with lots of good ideas. "Be creative!"—has probably never spurred anyone on to imaginative high performance. But creativity can be encouraged and practiced. This e⁠-⁠learning introduces various methods and techniques for finding creative ideas —from classics such as brainstorming to stimulus image analysis. The focus of the training is in animated explanatory films. The video lectures introduce various creativity techniques and explain framework conditions that are necessary to successfully implement the methods. Specifically, the following techniques and methods will be covered: Brainstorming and Brainwriting, the 635 method, the Six Thinking Hats, the Walt Disney Method, and Stimulus Image Analysis. The e⁠-⁠learning contains valuable tips, concrete fields of application and "recipes" for a successful process. Transfer tasks help participants to integrate the methods and techniques into their everyday work. Learning questions after each module and a final test secure the learning results and confirm the achievement of the learning objectives.

"Agility" is the answer to ever shorter-term planning processes and ever faster change. "Leadership" must also be rethought in this context. This e⁠-⁠training therefore puts the classic leadership tools to the test. It is divided into the areas of mindset (understanding of leadership), skillset (leadership competencies) and toolset (leadership tools). For all three areas, we will examine how thinking and the respective methods and tools must change in order to continue to meet the requirements of successful leadership.

In the e⁠-⁠training "Understanding Digitalization" presenter Christina takes participants on a journey into the digital world. She shows that digitization is not just about converting physical products and applications into digital products and applications. But that it is above all about the data that is generated in the process. In this process, traditional companies are disappearing - and new companies are emerging. In the same way, professions are changing. Even doctors may be replaced by digital technologies. The presenter introduces the new power of customers and the need for customer centricity as another significant change.

They learn how they can create a productive atmosphere as a moderator in a meeting. And they are given the tools to meet the many challenges - from frequent speakers to interrupters.

The e⁠-⁠training was developed by design thinking practitioners. At the center is a real-life, anonymized project. It shows how a manufacturer of garage doors developed new products and solutions using a design thinking process. In this way the participants get to know the so-called problem space and the solution space in a vivid way. They also learn the three steps that lead through the two spaces. The participants learn what prerequisites must be created in order to apply design thinking. And they will be enabled to carry out their own projects along the design thinking method. In a special chapter, the persona concept is also presented in the context of the practical example.

The e⁠-⁠learning shows the background and development of scrum. This enables the participants to classify and understand scrum. At the center are the basics of scrum as described by Jeff Sutherland in his book "The Scrum Revolution". The references to the Toyota principle and the Plan-Do-Check-Act method show that scrum had a broader horizon than software development from the beginning. Based on this, the essential characteristics of scrum are described: working in teams, focused work and the division into product owner, scrum master and team. The participants also learn what the basic organization of a project looks like according to scrum. The e⁠-⁠learning brings all participants to a high level of knowledge about scrum. It is ideal for the preparation for scrum projects and for the preparation for the different scrum roles.

To ensure that the participants do not only get to know Kanban in its short form as a planning tool, the e⁠-⁠learning first briefly goes into its development. On the basis of the development in the Japanese automotive industry, they get to know the "flow idea" behind Kanban. This should enable the participants to use the method more creatively and purposefully. A case study from the manufacturing industry will also make Kanban tangible. The participants will learn the different ways to handle a Kanban board. They also learn about the most important elements such as "Work in Progress Limits" and the "Pull Principle"
