Apps for managers are on the increase

The training industry has not gone unaffected by digitization. A new app has been designed to help managers make optimum use of the training period. The developers are going as far as to call it a 'revolution'.

"Those who want to ensure their management team remains competitive in the age of digital transformation will not score points using development routines from the 80s" says CEO Frank Kübler of the Frankfurt startup Leada , which developed the app. The kicker? The new mobile learning formats consist of so-called 'nano-impulses', which Leada provides before, during and after the qualification and change processes, via smartphone. This includes tips for tricky management situations and suggestions for self-reflection. Members of staff can improve the quality assurance using team surveys via app.

Leada has also thrown gamification elements into the mix: Managers will be tasked with 'leadership challenges'. One of the examples provided by Leada is to hold employee meetings whilst taking a walk, rather than sitting in the office. It should be possible to work with the tool regardless of place and time.

Apps for managers are becoming more and more fashionable. Kienbaum has just released an app for separation managers . Dismissals are a sensitive issue, which, according to a study on HR consulting, only 21% of companies have a clear strategy for dealing with. At the same time, 81% of those surveyed said that professional separation management has a positive effect on the commitment of remaining employees. The app displays all the significant elements of a redundancy, up to and including questions about tax, social security and finances.
