SIT’s training programs combine theory and practice;
The training programs are lead by professional facilitators and are conducted as interactive
workshops (as opposed to passively listening to lectures);
We use practical individual and team exercises, designed to give you results from day one;
We maintain deep respect for trainees’ existing knowledge and expertise;
Participants practice on a mix of generic cases as well as "live" organizational topics and
work issues. In this case we will incorporate real Nestlé examples as well as examples from
the food industry and other industries;
Our trainings help to convert innovation from a declared value to a day-to-day practice;
The main criterion for success is participants’ application of their learnings to real life tasks
after the training.
