Der 5-15-Report: Der smarte Bericht für optimalen Informationsfluss
You are probably familiar with the following scenario: Your supervisor wants you to prepare a weekly, monthly or quarterly report. Reading this report usually takes a long time - and writing such a report is even more time-consuming. However, since it makes sense to write a report in most cases, the 5-15 report can be a good choice. This report is characterised by the fact that the author does not need more than 15 minutes to prepare it. At the same time, the reading time is reduced to 5 minutes. Are you curious how such a report is created? Andrea Windolph will explain it to you - and she will show you the advantages and limits of such a report.

Wozu wir neues Denken brauchen.
Do you associate "being successful" with "stress"? Then you are not the only one. In his article, Falk Golinsky explains the connection to "old ways of thinking" and why people's way of thinking has to be transformed. The best place to start this transormation is at school: Children and teenagers should not be trained to win competitions day in and day out. It is much more important that young people learn to develop themselves and be creative from an early age. Read this article to learn how agility can positively influence the new mindset.
