Public Courses

Keywords: Functional Team, Cross Functional Team,

We schedule public courses to support those who cannot participate in our projects or corporate education programs.  This includes people who cannot fit their company's events into their schedules for personal or corporate reasons, who get hired or promoted after the educational program, or who work in remote locations, like Asia or Europe.  By including people from multiple clients and from the general public we can economically meet these needs at locations around the world so that organizations can get these "orphans" caught up.  This is accomplished by delivering courses and sessions in conjunction with universities, training organizations, and professional conferences.  

Profession Focused
Leadership Competency Development

A great many professions have some kind of facilitation as a key element of their profession.  One of our campaigns is focused on developing educational programs that will provide an upward path for their facilitation skills.  These programs are designed to be offered in cooperation with local educational institutions or the profession's international associations.  Some of our programs currently in development include:

Beyond Brainstorming and Creative Problem Solving

This program first of all develops a deeper understanding of the facilitation process and gives a unique perspective on the processes by which the standard tools and techniques of the field contribute to success.  The course then explores ways to greatly increase the ability of teams to develop more complex solutions, including approaches to new industries, new disciplines, and new cultures

Beyond Value Engineering/Value Management

This program first of all develops a deeper understanding of the facilitation process and gives a unique perspective on the processes by which the standard tools and techniques of this field contribute to success.  The course explores ways to accelerate the creativity and insight of VE teams, especially ways to be more responsive to the full spectrum of corporate strategy.

Co-Creative Focus Groups

This program first of all develops a deeper understanding of the facilitation process and gives a unique perspective on the processes by which the standard tools and techniques of this field contribute to success.  The course then explores ways to use the creativity of focus group participants to not only generate data, but to self-reflectively generate insights about their needs and expectations.

Corporate Education Services

Learning to talk about management, leadership, and strategy is rarely enough, but is often the only result of training programs and graduate education. We push for participants to prepare for and follow-up these sessions with reading and real world experimentation with the concepts being covered. We blend relevant theoretical concepts with immediate application to real goals of the individual and organization.
