Jan-Kees van Dijk's Summary

Mijn focus is tweeledig:

1) het ontwikkelen en vermarkten van internationale bachelor programma's. Ik ben de specialist op het gebied van echt internationaal onderwijs, waarbij ik focus op bachelor en master programma's.

2) het ontwikkelen van mensen en organisaties; o.a. in de rol van consultant en als docent in het (internationale) hoger onderwijs.
Hierbij focus ik op het snijvlak van strategie en ontwikkeling. Door middel van mijn "strategie toets en ontwikkeling" aanpak help ik organisaties weer op het juiste spoor. Daarnaast is het geweldig om met mensen en organisaties te werken aan groei. Een paar stappen in mijn aanpak zijn o.a. het helder krijgen van de juiste strategie, het in kaart brengen van de juiste en gewenste cultuur, en het op 1 lijn krijgen van organisatie ontwikkeling en persoonlijke ontwikkeling.

I focus on 2 areas of expertise:

1) I am the specialist in international higher education, as a developer of programmes and as a teacher. I have years of experience in the European Bachelor and Master Market. Within Europe I always have had a special focus on Germany and The Netherlands.
Via Academic Alliance Europe we market and develop international Bachelor and Master programmes. We have developed higher education programmes for partner schools in Germany, and for students who want to combine their job with an efficient bachelor study. A bachelor programme that fits and supports their career. We know how because we use the best from both countries. As a result we can offer real unique Bachelor programmes in business administration, Information Technology, and other areas.

2) My other specialisation is the intersection of strategy and development. Strategy relates to the corporate strategy of an organisation. Development relates to personal and organisational development. The binding element is culture, I believe that the culture of an organisation defines its success!
