Scientific Supervision and External Evaluation

We review projects and provide external evaluation services. We adhere to recognised evaluation standards and apply tools, which have been specifically adapted or developed for the sport sector.

Principles

While our projects are unique, our working principles don’t change:

a

WE PLAN TO SUCCEED

—Coming from sport science, we follow a systematic and accurate mode of operation, yet we are goal- and user-oriented. Considering practical constraints and the nature of voluntary sport organisations, we will help plan the best route to success.

B

WE PREFER TO PLAY AS A TEAM

—In sport you learn that only hard work wins you a medal: We fully commit ourselves to projects. We are open and supportive and want our partners and clients to be actively involved. 

c

WE BRING YOU TO THE FINISH LINE

—In project work, initial euphoria frequently gives way to interim frustration and fatigue. We are prepared for this and will help you to set the right pace to make sure your project gets to the finish line.
