We build the bridge between business needs and university to boost your performance
Empowerment as a Service
As a management consultancy, we know that employee talent guarantees corporate success.
The promotion and development of talents poses problems for companies because classic educational institutions do not train current and future-oriented topics and internal company knowledge management is often intransparent.
How can talents nevertheless be informed about current developments and trained on them for performance increase?
The Tsetinis Academy has made it its business to process experiences from project work on central topics in training courses and offer them to customers.Over the past 20 years, we have shaped the importance of product cost optimization at OEM, Tier1 and Tier2 through Cost & Value Engineering and professionalized the interaction between purchasing, development, production and sales. Similarly, today we are shaping the importance of CO2 optimization of components (Product carbon footprint - PCF) and companies (Corporate carbon footprint), in particular the optimal relation between costs and CO2-Emission on the way to climate neutrality and providing management decisions.
Having the right capabilities on board
On the one hand we tailor customized trainings according to content and intensity and on the other hand we offer open trainings (see training calendar) with highly current and explosive topics. Example: "Manage Corporate Sustainability", where we give among others purpose, consistency, and handling of the latest laws e.g., Supply Chain Sourcing Obligations Act (LkSG), mandatory since 01.01.2023.
Training modules to enhance capabilities
Our sequential training modules cover the area of Cost & Value Engineering and Sustainability (ESG + Climate neutrality C02). They are designed to cover everything from solid basic knowledge to absolute expert knowledge. They also offer the flexibility to be tailored to your individual needs to efficiently deliver the knowledge you need.
