What will you learn?

The Management 3.0 two-day workshops are great fun, but what’s more important: They get results! They teach you how to work with hands-on management tools and techniques that you can start using right away. During the workshops, we run experiments that will challenge the way you think and that will lead to a better understanding of why people do what they do.

You will learn how to embrace change and how to encourage others to embrace it as well. Most importantly: You will learn how work does not have to feel like work, but more like enjoying the good life. You don’t want theories and soft management science, you want hands-on approaches that can become solutions for increasing employee engagement and improving results. You want to build a future.

Management 3.0 helps you answer questions like:

  • How can I make the rest of my organisation more agile?
  • How can I motivate my employees to develop themselves?
  • How can I persuade customers to accept scrum?
