Today’s business environment is complex, constantly changing and internationally focused, posing new challenges for harnessing profits. Companies need to adapt quickly and constantly to individual markets – and to the new generation of tech-connected youth. This requires you and your peers to accept shifting goals and to work collaboratively, with minds that are truly open to new challenges.
Are you looking for solutions that are adapted to your company culture and have the potential to boost the performance of your company? Audencia Business School’s Executive Education Department can help.
Our work is a driving force of future change. Our approach, known as Innovative Learning Solutions (ILS), makes the most of your company’s existing skill sets and know-how.
Choosing ILS means choosing high-quality, seamless and borderless training, through a face-to-face or blended learning approach. We adapt time scales and costs to suit your needs precisely.
We help you begin to transform by using techniques that motivate and empower those who generate the most value and offer the best service to clients. It all starts here: we challenge, confront and go back to basics in order to grasp your true needs.
Our teams adhere to your company culture and your processes, taking into account the specific needs and strategic challenges of your business.
Your learning process is important too. Our educational philosophy keeps the focus on the individual and offers techniques best suited to your unique challenges, whether they involve the ability to absorb new ideas, interdisciplinary training, etc.
The true training phase begins here. Our team – facilitators and guides – employs deliberate practice to improve the professional skills you expect in a given situation.
We develop creative and effective solutions that you can complete face-to-face or in a blended teaching environment. Training can be based on steps such as self-review and analysis, situational problem-solving or role play to lead strategic projects within a group.
These activities allow us to perform a full-scale test of the efficiency of your group, to help instil a common culture, to facilitate strategic decisions, to break down the walls of a silo mentality and to teach people how to work as a team.
By emphasising the importance of new technologies and collaborative platforms, we support you in the preparatory as well as operational stages of change management. Our guidance and mentoring integrate solutions that allow you to measure, adjust and ensure the best outcome of the programme of change.
We work to insure the long-term benefits of your learning experience by transferring our entire knowledge base to you, giving you total autonomy over the process of change within your company.
