All our resources are continuously updated.
Which theories, frameworks or methodologies are used to create Management Kits?

In terms of theoretical and methodological background, there are three pillars that are particularly important to us at Management Kits: For all our Kits, we first make sure that our content is aligned with key insights from management research in the respective field. This often entails a significant amount of translation work to make the Kits user-friendly and actionable in a practical environment. Second, there is practical project work, consulting experience, and user testing that goes into the Kit design. Third, we believe in the relevance of design thinking methodologies for management problem-solving and we integrate approaches in our Kit design work accordingly.

Is the Kit really actionable and hands-on?

That's the whole idea! We want to empower you to start working on your specific challenges right away. We support you throughout your journey, deploying the tools, and running your work sessions. There's even built-in guidance making sure you can move to implementation step-by-step according to your needs.

What is the difficulty level of the Kit?

Our Kits are designed to accommodate users of all experience levels. The Kit structure allows you to access exactly what is most relevant for you, for example only the tools or know-how sections. Even those well-versed in organizational design will find a significant number of the Kit’s resources useful. For users just getting acquainted with the field of work, the Kit provides resources and background to combine learning and capability-building with relevant activities to start your management challenge without unnecessary delay.

Do you update the Kit?

Building an effective organization is never finished. The same applies to our Kits.

Our Kits contain state-of-the-art management knowledge and tools. We continuously update the Kits, extending the library of use cases and user experiences, and adding new or revising existing tools and workshops. Most of these updates stem from user experiences in working with our Kits. Together, we ensure constant development of best practices.

How does the free expert coaching session work?
A free expert coaching session (1 hour, online) to kickstart your work with the Kit is included in the subscription. How you use this time with our expert is largely up to you.
Most Management Kits users typically benefit most from one of three options:
  1. We use the time to give you a general walkthrough of the Management Kits resources
  2. We discuss the general situation you are in, including some of the challenges and transitions the organization you work with is facing, and we subsequently compile a tailored guide to some of the tools and materials that are likely most effective in your situation.
  3. We focus the discussion on a specific organizational project or leadership development challenge of yours and look at how to best leverage the Kits to address this challenge.
What if I have additional questions applying the Kit to my specific context?

There is a comment section in each part of the Kit. You can use it to ask questions or also share your feedback with us. We will make sure to answer all our users’ questions in due course.
