Example of Modules:-
– Human Resource Management of The Future
In this module, you will receive:
• Knowledge about which kind of HR related strategic challenges a company often faces
• Knowledge about the different management theories needed to solve these strategic challenges
• The tools needed to implement a wide range of HR related procedures in your company, integrating the different stra-
tegic decisions made
• The tools needed to recruit, develop and retain the right staff
• Knowledge about how staff policies can be formulated and implemented, resulting in a better understanding of the
company’s perception of how to behave at the job, along with a broad understanding of the company’s goals and values
In both the short and long-term, quite a large number of organizations need development to maintain the speed and flex-
ibility needed in a modern company. This will result in a lot of challenges for the top leaders as well as the HR personnel to
ensure that the organisation has the competences needed for a wide array of tasks at a given time. It is all about how to
find and group the right staff and even more importantly, how to retain the good and reliable employees. Why? Because
it’s expensive to change employees often and because the “Employees are the most important asset of a company!” This
statement has been repeated time and time again! – However, only a few people take action! We therefore urge you to do
something about it and make this cliché a means of success by putting HR on the top manager’s agenda.
We live in a knowledge-based society, which changes everyday, meaning that the modern company has to be ready to adapt
to changes in all aspects of the company. At the same time, the employees in a modern company are better educated than
ever before. Due to these factors, HR has to be taken into consideration in all strategic decisions – and that is why it is impera-
tive that the top management deals with the issue of Human Resources.
In this module, you will focus on both the strategic work within the field of HR as well as the tools required to apply the stra-
tegic decisions to the everyday life of the company. We employ a practical minded view of things, so the theories and models
shown in the course can be employed directly in your company. This means that the course focuses on the participant’s
practical understanding as well as applied knowledge in actual HR situations.
• The module contains the following topics:
• HR and strategic management
• Staff policies
• Employee planning
• Employee development
• Attracting qualified employees
• Retaining valuable employees
• Releasing employees
• How to manage difficult conversations and messages
– The Future Way of Organization
This module is an introduction to the interaction between people, structure, environment and other organizational dimen-
sions. Basically, this module aims at providing an educational experience for students which will enable them to be equipped
with theoretical concepts relating to organizational behavior and understanding of the nature and function of organizations,
and groups and of individuals. Apart from being able to apply the knowledge in real workplace settings, participants would
also have better understanding on managing both the micro and macro organizational issues.
The module will expose students to the systems approach to Organizational Behavior as a whole. Its structure emphasizes
on the scope of theory, research and practice on OB, organizational culture and ethics, international OB, individual behavior,
social perception and attributions, motivation, job performance and rewards, behavior modification and self-management,
individual and group decision making, group dynamics, teams and teamwork; and managing conflict and negotiation, work
design, culture and change.

• Have developed a good knowledge of the main psychological and sociological theories relating to the nature and func-
tioning of organizations and the behavior of people within them.

– Manager of The Future
In this module, you will receive:
• Tools to enable you to handle the very diverse tasks of a leader in a small or medium sized company
• The knowledge needed to select the most effective management style in different management situations
• Knowledge about how to address the demands and expectations of employees, colleagues and upper management to
be an effective leader
• A deeper understanding of business negotiation situations and methods to professionally and efficiently handle a ne-
• An understanding of the importance of dialogue in formal meetings between manager and employee, along with meth-
ods to handle these situations
• We have targeted the following main focus points for this module, where we work with developing the leader’s tools to
develop his or her abilities in the practical role as a leader.
To better understand the situation a leader is in, you gain a fundamental knowledge of the different leadership theories that
formed the development of the modern company. The goal of this is not “theory for the sake of theory”, but giving you have
the ability to hold up these different theories, and find out where they are placed in this spectrum of leadership styles. While
working with the leadership theories, we will compare them to real cases, the modern reality.
Personal Leadership Style/Development
A leader can rarely be just a leader. Especially in small and medium sized companies, a leader is a practical jack-of-all-trades,
who works as the strategic planner, practical driving force and problem solver – often with completely unrelated issues. Due
to this, it is important for a leader to evaluate the tasks he or she has taken responsibility for – and how they affect the time
consumption. In this part, we also look at which electronic tools can be used, to lessen the time used on the different tasks.
Communication has traditionally been connected to starting a direct face-to-face dialogue with the employee. It is a fact that
the modern leader will have to realise, that such a connection is harder and harder to achieve. In the retail business world,
an often used term is, that money is not earned in the back premises of the shop – and in most companies, it is obvious that
internal meetings are not where the money is earned.
To improve the time efficiency within a company, it is important for a leader to learn to communicate efficiently – and utilise
the most effective media for this. This can be e-mails, instant messaging, intranets, newsletters, and a wide range of other
options. To improve the company communication, new ways of communicating, which fit the management, the employees
and the company culture, will have to be found.
In this course, we work with structuring communication in a way, which suits the individual company; a communication
style, which works with the leadership style.
Learning and Development Processes
If a company wishes to add new competences with regards to a new modern technology, it is an advantage to be able to
offer its employees the chance to develop such competencies.
When we speak about developing new means of communication in a company, two roads are available. You can either cre-
ate a problem – or a possibility for personal development. If an issue is presented correctly, with an understanding for how
people develop, changes within departments of a company can help the organisation as a whole.
In a changing world, conflicts will occur. They can be hard to see for the modern company, due to our face-to-face contact
being less frequent. As a leader, it is important to understand how and when they happen and react accordingly in a pro-
active way. The proactive reaction makes you as the leader, able to solve the problems before they become serious, even
though you might not be in daily contact with the employees.
– Leadership of The Future
In this module, you will receive:
• An insight into the development of a business plan
• An insight into the different leadership types and how these affect the way to run a business
• Methods to develop coaching plans, targeted at keeping the employees in the company
• A way to look towards the future and create long term plans for the company’s future goals and growth
The module consists of three separate elements, whereby all three elements are run with the same goal in mind; namely to
create the best fundament for optimal and efficient leadership within an organisation.
Strategy and Business Development
The focus is on optimising a range of aspects – such as the business plan itself, the economical planning, the project manage-
ment and so on. The goal is to document a “Proof of Concept” – a test of the company’s strategy, and its durability. A “proof of
Concept” is an excellent basis for a professional dialogue with external investors, or as a proof of the company’s economical
durability. The course makes the participant able to work efficiently with the company’s business plan, strategic develop-
ment, structuring and management of work processes.
These tools make the participant better at long term thinking and maintaining the focus on the company’s growth.
Leadership, Sparring and Coaching
We delve deeper into more of the essential psychological subjects with regards to leadership. You will learn to select relevant
leadership structures and leadership styles, based on the company’s strategy and organisational structure, along with a psy-
chological understanding of the individual human. At the same time, you will get a deeper insight into how the professional
development of both groups, as well as single individuals take place and how to turn this in the most beneficial direction for
Coaching is one of the means used today with regards to maintaining and developing the company’s employees. Taking this
very important factor into consideration, you will learn how to structure and run coaching sessions for your employees in the
most optimal way using modern techniques.
The Managerial Field of Work
We focus on selected strategic leadership philosophies and leadership models, targeting both relevant control processes
along with quality management, innovation management and sales management. This part of the module will equip the
Manager with the necessary tools to select the most optimal philosophies with regards to how the organisation looks at the
present time and how the desired future organisation is organised.
