the past fifteen years we have completed projects in the
U.S. with banks and professional services firms. Our materials
are licensed and used worldwide by Central Banks including
the U.S. Federal Reserve. Internationally, we work on all
continents, in most major languages, in all of the above
areas of expertise. We have extensive experience in working
with multicultural groups of participants.
combine research, consulting and management development
as part of our mandates, so that our projects go beyond
simple delivery of prepared courses. Almost everything we
do is modularized and customized. Our seminars include lectures,
case studies (often derived from client records), simulation,
readings, and workshops. We match the most current readings
with the flow of the program, often adapting the readings
to the participants comments and questions.
Our research is grounded research. We interview
managers and recreate cases from business relationships
in order to capture essential data in the field.
We work in applied contingencies theory
there are rarely simple answers to questions. The client
is asked to deal with an enormous amount of data in a very
short period of time.
We work in two essential fields multi-criteria
decision analysis and scenario development. Participants
must organize the analysis of risk into hierarchical choices.
These scenarios are stress tested to ascertain
risks of a variety of business alternatives.
addition to these methods, we establish and maintain a close
working relationship with both the clients staff and
line managers. Although we bring a rather broad multinational
perspective, there is no substitute for the clients
for its simulation methodology, The Banking Group uses simulation
to support the learning objectives of the seminar. Offered
as a live case study, the simulation can be
used to build group and team decision dynamics or even as
an evaluative tool.
