      no approval needed. time invest is ~ 1h for each learning circle meeting (~12 times), homework & exercises (max 1.h per learning circle meeting), as well as the 4 central sessione - so max 28 hours investment in yourself.

      thanks for asking. You find all the learning circle guides here - here some initial info on the topics.

      • Getting things done (GTD) is a is a personal productivity system and method developed by David Allen. The method is based on storing, tracking, and retrieving information related to the things you need to get done on context related checklists. So work can get more effective and less stresful
      • Diversity describes the similarities and differences between people, inclusion shows how to appreciate diversity.
      • Sketchnoting or visual notetaking is a creative and graphic process through where you record thoughts with text, symbols, graphics, structures and illustrations.

      These learning guides are ideally completed with a group of 3-5 people (a learning circle) and in a sprint-like manner. The learning circle meets self-organized weekly for 1 hour, discusses the exercises called "Katas" and reflects the learning progress.

      Hi Elsa,

      The learning circle guides are available in English and in German. The communication language within each circle is up to the circle members.

      There are no prerequisites and also no restrictions regarding career level.

      Best regards, Gerd

      you're right. We're working on it, sorry.

      You might enter the required info only, to not having to check too much German terms.

      Or did you have intentions to learn some German anyways 😉 ?
