USING THE TECHNOLOGY ON A LICENSE BASIS - TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES

Why licensing?

Based on a wide use in hundreds of training programs we can say that different assessment, feedback instruments and auditions are a vital part of an effective training program. They are not to used for their sake, but rather, used properly with right focus they make the quality program.

Developing tools, techniques and instruments for consulting and training is expensive and time-consuming because they need to be valid, research-based, reliable and user-friendly.

That is why licensing the instrument is a practical and useful way to enhance training and consulting. Licensing is mostly used by consultants and large organizations. Using new and tested instruments on a license basis is very beneficial because this way the organization can use right instruments without heavy investments for research and development.

In large organizations licensing is a very cost-effective way to train large numbers of employees in a short period of time. This is of great importance, because when introducing a new framework into the organization, it is essential that it is implemented widely in the organization so that all key employees familiarize with it. Because all the materials are available also in English, they can be applied in global organizations. In all licensing cases the proper use is guaranteed with effective trainer development.
