Certificate Program for Experts and Coaches

Our "Certificate Program Business Design & Innovation" is a special training format for management consultants and coaches as well as innovation managers of corporates, who aim to apply Business Design in real-life projects or want to roll out Business Design as part of an innovation management system.  After the successful completion of the program, participants officially receive the certificate issued by Orange Hills GmbH and TU München. The program is offered twice (intakes in spring and autumn) a year and held in German.

"Deep Dive" Program for Coaches

Since the "Certificate Program for Coaches"  is designed for people who are starting off with Business Design, our "Deep Dive" Program is specifically tailored around challenges and questions experienced Business Design coaches have. You should have completed at least 2-3x Business Design projects to benefit most from this program. The exchange among the participants is proactively supported - even after the program. The program starts in autumn every year and is held in German.
