TIAS In-company Custom Programs

For the sixth year in succession, the Financial Times has voted the TIAS customized programs as the very best in the Netherlands. And not without reason. TIAS can develop a custom program for your company too. TIAS takes care of everything during the entire process.

Once you have lodged your concrete training request with TIAS, you will be invited for an intake interview with Petra Mouthaan, Corporate Relations manager. Together, you will define what best suits your development needs. She will subsequently couple you with a suitable learning and development consultant. This expert will be your point of contact and will support you during the entire process.

The learning and development consultant will involve your organization and participants in each relevant aspect of the development and execution of the program. This means that he or she will take the time to get to know you properly and to fathom the needs and challenges of the organization and target group. The learning and development consultant will incorporate cases from the organization and guest speakers into the program and will use challenging teaching methods which will make a significant contribution to the impact. Permanent dialog with participants, experts, stakeholders and the program steering committee is of importance for continuously focusing the program.

Together with the learning and development consultant, you will go through the following steps:



















Our co-creation approach  'At TIAS we design with the end in mind'

At TIAS, we believe that the real impact for the individual and the organization can only be achieved by connecting with your organization's ambitions and with the daily practice and challenges of the participants. The learning and development consultant will investigate your development need from a critical and inquisitive angle. If required, we will facilitate co-creation boardroom sessions with one of our experts from the lecturing staff.

Our teaching methods

Learning and development is a process that leads to movement and concrete behavioral change. Experience shows that 70% of learning takes place in daily activities, 20% of learning is through informal social interactions and 10% of learning is from learning and development programs.

Thus we achieve our impact through the use of a mixture of teaching methods. We work for instance on:

  • A broad exploration of current and academic insights
  • Deepening through the handling of real life cases, dilemmas and experiential learning by means of game-based activities such as the Virtual Lab.
  • Anchoring in order to answer the question: what are we going to do with this? Or in other words: set up and execute the strategic agenda.

In-company training is intended for groups from 12 people.
