Projects are used to create the extraordinary. Project work is work beyond the routine that requires special skills. Both for project managers and for executives who need and support such projects. We demystify the art of successfully designing and managing projects for everyone. We bridge the gap between theory and practice, modernity and tradition - and teach effective methods beyond hype and buzzwords.

Decision-making is sometimes stressful or feels like wasted time. And all too often, decision making is unnecessarily complicated by ambiguity around essential questions. It starts with: Who actually needs the decision and for what reason? What exactly should be decided - and what not? We can help you free up everyone involved in the decision-making process. And invite you to experience the difference.

Given the transformations we face, good change management has never been more important. Unfortunately, many people are exhausted by the ever-recurring theater of change. True transformation works differently! Not with classic change management and phase plans. Instead, with novel approaches which focus on the essentials, use resources wisely and deliver useful results early in the process.

About Our Seminars
Our seminars are made for people who are open-minded, curious and face the challenges of working beyond established routines in organisations. In other words, an "Over the Fence" seminar is just right for you if you are ...
- looking for particularly effective tools to enrich your toolbox,
- want to learn how to overcome hindering routines and ways of thinking to organize your work much better.
- want to understand current trends and navigate safely through the jungle of new methods.
WHAT will you learn?
"Over the Fence" has set out to make the working life of people better. To this end, we have created several innovative approaches - and that's exactly what we teach in our seminars! But we do not reinvent everything. Rather, we combine modern business concepts with behavioral economics, systems theory and visualization. The result are not only amazingly effective methods, but also a lightweight approach to in-depth management know-how. If you are a management professional, you will learn a new approach. If you are more novice, you will learn what matters - the minimum necessary knowledge to start well.
HOW will you learn?
Our seminars are engaging, enlightening, and offer an extra dose of fun. You learn directly from "Over the Fence" founders Karen and Frank. They will take you on a journey of discovery and act as coaches and guides. You'll get short lectures and thought-provoking impulses on the way, as well as a balanced mix of individual and group work and plenty of space for exchange and reflection. Whenever possible, we work on real cases - no fiction of any kind. We will invite you to challenge your current practice and expand your professional repertoire.
