Management development 2.0 - A new life with Tappin web app

    Management involves handling complex challenges and making decisions in demanding situations. Leadership involves the ability to influence, inspire and guide people towards achieving common goals in an effective and positive way. There are many qualities and characteristics associated with leadership. Leadership is not just based on a single attribute, but a combination of several skills and abilities.

    What drives people to good performance and what characterizes the best top managers, and how to train for this? 

    A number of companies such as Fraordtilhandling, AFF (Administrative Research Fund), Tekna and Circle K use Tappins' web app in their management development program. Fraordtilhandling has a basic philosophy that all management and all businesses can be developed with clear goals, concrete training goals and a good culture, and offers programs where this is trained. AFF (Administrative Research Fund) offers a number of management programs where programs are ranked among the world's 50 best in the Financial Times' annual ranking. Tekna is Norway's largest trade union for you with a master's degree in technical and natural sciences uses Tappin on its flagship leadership development programme, and not least Circle K uses Tappin at all annual Global Leadership Meetings.  

    Why and what value does using an app for your management development program create? Below are a number of points that optimize your leadership development program to the next level! 

    What challenges do you face by not using an app?

    One of several challenges is seamless and effective communication to all participants, both before, during the program and afterwards. Communication and messages to the participants can come from different places, such as different people, hotels via sms and e-mails and it is challenging for participants to gather all the information in a good way. The expectations and needs of the participants is a seamless flow of communication.  

    It is an expectation to have all information in one place that is available throughout the training period. There is often a need for high flexibility, with a view to sharing documents and tasks from time to time, as well as to communicate easily via SMS with targeted information to all or parts of the participant group. 

    "We wouldn't be Tappin's app except for a single event - and I actually don't know if it would have been possible to carry out those events with the setup we have today without Tappin" says Director Global Events at Circle K. Svein Arve Strand "

    Immediate feedback: An interactive web app should give participants immediate feedback on answered quizzes, send messages and images in a shared chat. This helps participants understand their strengths and weaknesses and gives them the opportunity to improve in real time.

    Community and network: The opportunity to participate in an online community, where participants can share ideas, challenges and best practices, promotes collaboration and knowledge sharing. This creates a supportive learning environment and can lead to valuable contacts and networks.

    to improve leadership skills, efficiency and communication in organisations. It provides the opportunity to reach a wider audience and customize the learning experience for each individual participant.
