Resilience Capability -
Prevention and Early Detection of Misconduct

(please note: Course is offered in German only)


In his own conversations, a white-collar delinquent explained that his motivation was to live beyond what was expected of him in his position. He stated that it later became a competition to see if he could get away with it. Scandals like the one involving Wirecard can be attributed to either "first comes the grub, then comes morality" (B. Brecht) or "greed eats brains." Business resilience refers to the ability to continue growing despite financial misconduct and other challenges. Preventative measures can be developed based on the motivation and behavior of the perpetrators. Companies must go beyond compliance with laws and standards to meet the high expectations placed upon them. This is necessary to maintain a "Social License to Operate" and achieve sustainable business success.

The objective of this training is to educate participants on appropriate methods for interpreting misconduct accurately. Identifying anomalies early on and taking proactive measures to address potential wrongdoing are essential for promoting effective business resilience. Through the training, attendees will gain valuable insights based on over 100 interviews conducted with business offenders, as well as real-world corporate practices. This behind-the-scenes look at the human theater will provide a deep understanding of the topic.

  • valuable impulses for your practice in the field of business resilience,
  • field reports with perpetrators, unpublished study results, 
  • relevant exercise examples and concrete implementation guidelines,
  • a globally recognized executive education course with a certificate from the University of St.Gallen (HSG),
