Academics are not the experts, managers are the experts but what fitting-in can do is to help managers to use their expertise.
Theory without practice is a waste - Practice without theory may just be dumb!
Fitting-in are developing a new template and we hope you are not inconvenienced
Some examples of what our Transformational elite-briefing led workshops would look like
Every workshop is customised according to your needs. These workshops are offered as one-day packages to reduce the amount of time managers are away from their desk. Should you want a less intense two-day delivery, which allows for desk-time, then this is also available. Either way I am offering your service a real opportunity to seek answers to real problems from informed debate.
