Questions / Answers

Why differentiate training according to levels of responsibility?
In an organization, each level of responsibility has a special role to play. In order to respond correctly to the demands of the higher level, the lower levels must be given instructions. Everyone must know the scope of their action, the crushing of the levels of responsibilities that we often talk about is due to a lack of knowledge by the performers as well as the decision-makers of the decision-making processes and the corresponding levels of responsibilities.
Why are planning and operations methods adaptable to the corporate or institutional world?
The methods developed by the military world allow the development and implementation of strategies to solve complex crises in which many actors intervene. These methodological approaches have proved their worth in theaters of operation, they allow collaborative work, the synergy of expertise for the development, implementation and evaluation of strategies. As a result, they are perfectly adaptable to all areas of action.
What does to adopt a global approach means?
Adopting a global approach consists in recognizing that only the synergy of capabilities (power tools) owned by a nation, an organization, a company, can allow the achievement of the objectives set within the framework of a real strategy.
How to get access to online courses?
Access to online courses is granted to learners enrolled by their organization in an educational module that includes courses in attendance and online courses. Individual and à la carte availability is not possible.
