Our one-year
corporate training

We offer high-quality know-how on future skills, real-life projects, live events and a cross-industry network for your employees. The ada | fellowship is a one-year, extra-occupational course. Since 2019, more than 1000 Fellows from more than 30 organizations have taken part. 

concept

Our offerings focus on three learning objectives: 

BE Participants learn which personal characteristics, ways of thinking and behavioral patterns will help them achieve success in the working world of tomorrow – and how they can adapt them.

KNOW Participants learn to use concepts and strategies that help people understand technological change and solve problems in their organization. 

DO Participants apply their knowledge methodically and purposefully and share their skills in practice-oriented exchanges with their teams and within their organization.

programme

The  ada | fellowship comprises 3 components:

In monthly modules the participants learn about technological developments, new methods of working, and digital product development. They enjoy access to our digital learning platforms containing our multi-media content, and can discuss it with other Fellows while expanding their community networks.

In two application-oriented project phases the participants develop prototypical solutions for real challenges facing their organization, and try out formats and strategies to actively anchor their realizations within their organization.

At our live events the Fellows are treated to inspiring speakers and have the opportunity to talk to, work with and learn from one another while establishing a cross-industry network.

target group

The  ada I fellowship is aimed at large and medium-sized enterprises from every sector, as well as political and public institutions that want to prepare their employees to meet the challenges of the digital transformation. The program is offered in German and English.

ada | mission
We make change understandable

You can’t shape the future without understanding what’s going on in the present. Especially in today’s world of fast-changing technology. We are convinced that ongoing education can be innovative and inspiring instead of conventional and one-dimensional. Digital learning is at its most effective when it involves personal exchange within a growing network. 

Our ada | fellowship is a unique, year-long program focusing on the Mindset, Knowledge and Skills needed to shape the future of your organization. People-oriented and hands-on. 

We have partners in the areas of business, politics, administration, media and civil society. Although we are very diverse, we share a common goal: To contribute to a fair and sustainable Economic Miracle 4.0.

Our events are a source of inspiration for anyone who wants to think beyond the boundaries of their own ideas and the familiarity of the professional and personal lives.

ada | about us

Why ada?

We are courageous, confident and foresighted. Inspired by Ada Lovelace, a poet as well as the world’s first programmer, who as early as 1843 described how humans and machines would interact in the future – at least 100 years ahead of her time. She transcended boundaries both in thought and actions, and foresaw the computer not merely as a calculating machine but also as a musical instrument, thus making a contribution to the way humans interact with machines today. Just like Ada Lovelace in her day, we see learning as a lifelong vocation. We concur with one of her fundamental beliefs:

 

“However well I may understand things, my understanding will always be only a minimal fraction of what I want to understand.”

If Ada Lovelace and Ludwig Erhard were to drink a glass of wine together, the result would have been the economic miracle 4.0.
