Han van der Pool advises on and supports the development, implementation and maintenance of corporate universities. A corporate university is not a physical entity as such, but more a concept for organized learning for the benefit of your organization.
A corporate university (corporate academy, college or school) is focused on the goals and priorities of the organization through a direct connection between the learning activities and strategy and direct and actual commitment of strategic management. The corporate university has a coherent program and is result-oriented in terms of business goals. It is also important that the corporate university is the vehicle for the creation and maintenance of the organizational structure.
With a corporate university, employees in your organization do not only develop skills linked to the execution of their work, but also so-called ‘core workplace skills’, such as learning to learn, leadership, creative thinking and innovating.
