Benefits

GLOBAL-SPIN goes above and beyond traditional approaches and methodologies in corporate learning to properly respond to the new training challenges coming of globalized (or trying to internationalize) Spin-Offs, and the need to assess the effectiveness of this learning at three levels: for employees, for managers and for organizations.

Internationalization Strategies´ Assessment
New Corporate Learning Approach
