People need maintenance and upgrades even more than machines do.
Retraining is maintenance.
Training is an upgrade.
Development is the next generation model.
‘Creativity can be learned and the school curriculum should be restructured to reflect forms of learning which develop creative ability’
Creativity is the application of knowledge and skills in new ways to achieve a valued goal. To achieve this, learners must have four key qualities:
- the ability to identify new problems, rather than depending on others to define them
- the ability to transfer knowledge gained in one context to another in order to solve a problem
- a belief in learning as an incremental process, in which repeated attempts will eventually lead to success
- the capacity to focus attention in the pursuit of a goal, or set of goals.’
---Seltzer & Bentley
"There is research evidence that certain characteristics of the teacher are correlated with the extent to which creativity is effectively fostered with learners. These include the teacher’s attitude toward creativity, social relations between teacher and learner and the provision of optimal materials - proving a relationships between values and attitudes, intelligence and pedagogic repertoires."

They deserve a unique solution.
1. Uunderstanding you, your organization, and your needs!
Our backgrounds in international organizations, academia, science, research, communication, issue and crisis management, marketing and all aspects of IT, as well as in non-profits and civil society organizations enables us to ask the proper questions.
We will not stop until we understand your needs, and the environment the solution will have to fit.
2. Define and implement your solution
First we develop a concept / proposal of the solution. This document will summarize our understanding of the problem and gives all known restrictions with regards to budgets, organizational readiness, security etc.
After you accepted this proposal - and we will do as many iterations as necessary - we will implement the solutions.
The solution will be based on the best available technology - whether it is one of our proprietary products or a 3rd party product.
We will give you a prototype - just to make sure that we properly understood what you expect.
Based on your feedback we will then develop a unique solution for you.
3. The successful deployment of a solution is just the beginning of a long-term relationship
Of course we provide training, maintenance and support.
Additionally, we also provide a persistent interest in what you do and how our solutions are serving you.
With the click of the mouse, you can always reach us - almost any time of the day, any day of the week.
Chances are that 10 years after your solution went live, you will still be able to reach all the people who developed it.
They still know you, still know the application, and are ready to help.
We focus on results creating value for our stakeholders
Our organizational strategy and bi-annual plans include key stakeholder requirements to ensure differing needs are met and avoid unintended adverse impacts on any stakeholders.
