ACADEMIC 

Some of our staff teach and perform research in a number of different areas such as Marketing & Sales, Strategy, Decision Making, Communication, Collaboration Engineering, Operational Excellence (Lean Six Sigma). They have taught at schools in the US (e.g. Emory, Georgia Tech, San Diego State University) and in Europe (Copenhagen Business School, AVT Business School). The educational services provided are typically Executive MBA classes, but some also teach graduate students  and Ph.D. students. We also perform research within different areas of competence and publish articles and books on a regular basis. The latest contribution is an article which was published at the worlds largest IT systems conference HICSS 49 on the subject of "Philosophy of Collaboration", and we also perform peer review for different publications and conferences like HICSS, ECIS and other. We also do instructional courses for professors and teachers ("Train the trainer") about Case Learning and Digital Collaboration, and provide assistance for professors who are challenged with developing an in-class course into a full fledged on-line or virtual course.

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

To be a teacher does not mean simply to affirm that such a thing is so, or to deliver a lecture, etc. No, to be a teacher in the right sense is to be a learner. Instruction begins when you, the teacher, learn from the learner, put yourself in his place so that you may understand what he understands and the way he understands it. (Soren Kierkegaard)
