Sustainable Personal and Organizational Execution – A Framework to Successful “OppEx”: Our Executive Education training program, “The Art of Detachment Project,” including the certification process and the direct “hands-on” experiences are a significant investment for both you and your organization. Going far beyond the basic transmission of skills and theories, the program provides applicable lessons for learners to acquire a fresh and global perspective on business, leadership, diversity education, team building, strategy-execution, and project management.
