HELSINKI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The European consultancy group Innotiimi-ICG, together with two European consortium partners, has been selected as the provider of the next generation of leadership and management development programmes for the European Union institutions.
The contract, worth EUR 8 million and spanning four years, covers both the inter-institutional leadership and management trainings organised by the European School of Administration (EUSA) and the specific training needs of thirty seven other institutions, agencies and bodies of the European Union. Those include e.g. the European Parliament, the Council Secretariat General, the European Commission, the European External Action Service and various agencies in all member states.
After a more defined and detailed planning period now in progress, the next generation learning programmes will commence gradually next year.
The winning concept, beating thirteen other bids was considered excellent in many respects. Making the Innotiimi-ICG proposal stand out was its novel approach to versatile learning paths and progressive methodology, aiming at wider and lasting results.
The concept managed to reflect the underlying change taking place in the EU institutions’ training needs. Resulting from an increased work load and diminishing human resources, it has been recognized that all training needs to be more focused and effective.
In this pursuit, Innotiimi-ICG can be seen as a logical choice. Already since 2007, the consortium has provided training for EUSA and the EU institutions. That experience is shown in a mutual understanding of the challenges ahead and paved the way for future co-operation.
Bringing their expertise to the up and coming training programmes are also two other consortium partners, the GreenHouse Group and AIM.
Innotiimi-ICG is a consultancy group of 130 professionals in 12 countries with 30 years of experience. The group is focusing on supporting leadership teams in both private and public enterprises with change processes.
