In our think tank new concepts and models emerge, which are conclusive and effective for decades. This includes numerous learning innovations, which have been created at isb and which we pass on to our participants.

We are convinced that learning continues as a process even after training. This is why it is also part of our self-understanding to act as a network organization, which, with many actors, maintains different levels of participation and cooperation.

The isb has designed its further education in the form of curricula on various topics of the professional and organizational world. In all curricula, professional work and control is viewed from a systemic perspective. The aim is to further qualify the participants in the creative handling of professional roles. They develop their professional identity and personal integrity. In terms of organizations, they develop understanding of the inner life and logic of systems and acquire craft tools for the development and management of organizational processes.
The entire continuing education program is designed for two years of learning within the group: the second year's advanced curriculum builds on the basic curriculum of the first year. It is also possible to complete only the basic curriculum or connect the advanced curriculum in a timed manner. Both curriculum levels are completed with a certificate. At the end of the second year, qualification certificates can be acquired. The master program is used for the further intensive connection to the isb.
In addition to the curricula listed below, we also offer inhouse and short curricula.
The basic curricula of isb provide basic knowledge and methods of the systemic approach. Personal professional development is also of great importance. The exchange with the teacher and the other learners supports the reflection of the learned content and personal progress. The curricula consist of six three-day blocks. This allows sufficient time for personal growth both for the individual and the group.
CERTIFICATES: The participation in a curriculum of the first year is certified by a basic certificate.

For your personal advancement, we recommend a participation in a self-awareness seminar in addition to the curricula.
For some certifications, participation is required. For better planning and securing a place of your choice, you have the option of booking the self-awareness directly together with the curriculum.
Following two years of training at isb and in addition to the advanced certificate, you have the option to pursue a Qualified Certificate. The Qualified Certificates go beyond participation certificates and document your professional development. The requirements differ depending on the desired Qualified Certificate.
The MasterProgram is aimed at graduates of at least two years of further education at the isb, who want to refine their profile with regard to systemic professionalism and deal with the content as well as the learning and professions culture of isb. The program includes the isb master certificate, the membership in the MasterGroup and the participation in an annual master meeting. Registration is only possible after a personal consultation with us.
The short curricula of isb are dedicated to a specific topic. They are generally aligned to four building blocks of three days each.
As in the case of comprehensive curricula, the participants are qualified to discuss current topics of the organizational world and their professional roles in front of a systemic background. They work in different didactic formats and the isb-typical learning culture on the content as well as their individual development. In contrast to the curricula with six building blocks, the topics are somewhat narrower. The focus and the cutting of the topics fosters the discussion and learning with the focus of the short curriculum and supports the appropriate exchange of the participants.
In the case of organization-specific development programs, which require a special design and involve a number of employees, we can offer an in-house curriculum designed specifically to your needs.
Certain change and development topics are very organization-specific. It is often advisable to combine consulting with qualification tailored to your organization’s needs. This is how we ensure personal and system qualification. In our inhouse curricula, we train your employees with a system-qualifying approach, which makes a difference.
The participants benefit not only from the appropriate training content, but also from our long-established learning culture, which can be transferred to your organization and helps to further develop topics and the self-management of the organization.
We would be pleased to provide you with an individual inhouse curriculum tailored to your organization. Inhouse curricula can be offered in German and English.
