Executive education program in English
In management we tend to focus on success stories. But based on what we read and hear each day, it may be more interesting to learn how strong organizations become involved in disasters or bankruptcies, despite having managers with solid professional backgrounds. As we all know, mistakes are unavoidable, especially under high pressure. Yet, in most organizations, it is rare for them to be thoroughly examined. An exception is the high-risk aviation industry, which focuses on preparing its members to solve life-threatening situations.

It shows how a diagnostic concept is the first step toward a modern working environment in which critical situations serve as learning opportunities.
