Relevant Skills and Experience
ECECE is a key regional player in innovative business culture consulting and advisory services, with a special focus on whole brain approach and design Thinking. Thanks to the know how of its consultants ECECE operates within three main divisions: Project Management Consulting, innovative business idea generation and innovative business planning. ECECE daily challenges are acquiring the most up to date knowledge in entrepreneurial culture development as well as an up to date knowledge of the latest methodologies to maximize the creativity of potential entrepreneurs and start ups. Persistently working toward continuous improvement, and stretching its potential, ECECE have succeeded in developing models and tools that serve to identify new entrepreneur’s specific requirements, addressing them in the most effective and efficient manner. ECECE strive to constantly upgrade and fine tune these methodologies.
Thanks to a recent collaboration with the Fachhochschule Kärnten, the Landesschulrat für Kärnten, the Kärntner Volkshochschulen and the same Stadtschulrat für Wien, ECECE is implementing new tools and methodologies to ease and then spread participative approaches for young people based on the design thinking (and in general the whole brain) approach, in both formal and not-formal education environments. In this sense these experiences will be exploited to provide direct inputs to the testing phase by stressing the use of participative approaches based on design thinking (and more broadly the whole brain) approach to involve pupils into the testing / laboratories implementations. Inputs will be both made available for the whole partnership in the preparation phase (by collaborating with the LP - UniMoRe in the setting-up of the tools) and directly deployed on the Austrian schools.
