Working your alliance skills

Today is another workshop day for me. I am in Heidelberg in Germany and will be delivering a private in-house workshop for 10 alliance managers of a global organisation working in the IT area. These 10 professionals come together to prepare for their CA-AM professional certification exam.

In-house workshops are based on the standard open enrolment workshop. After all they prepare for the same standard CA-AM certification. But in-house workshops are always a bit different. Today the workshop will focus on the specifics of the German company and Tomorrow a day of coaching is added to the workshop to have one on one coaching with the alliance managers to focus on their own specifics that still need attention before applying for the exam. With another client we are scheduling an in-house workshop that will put emphasise on the differences between their internal alliance process and the alliance lifecycle that is being examined at the CA-AM exam. Not that they are that far apart, but they differ enough to create confusion in the exam, hence the added attention to this topic in the workshop.

In-house workshops can be completely tailored, open enrolment is a standard workshop. An online self study system has been added to the portfolio. Interested to learn more? Read more on the Alliance Accelerator website (and register) or contact me to discuss an in-house workshop.
