We believe that stimulating managers to think and act both operationally and strategically at the workshop sessions is the best way to boost performance. Mirroring real-world decision-making experiences in a corporate management environment help to create emotionally-charged environment leading to real experiential learning.

The applied collaborative learning environment – interactive business simulations, self-assessments and case studies – challenge the TMMC participants to analyse available information and make critical decisions to solve various people management cases and challenges. They are playing a role, not just reading and analyzing. They make decisions and see the results of their decisions in the response of other participants and the outcome of the exercise.
