    Training Methodology and Philosophy
    The focus of JBS training activities are anchored on our core values which include integrity, credibility and a result-oriented knowledge transfer based on the 3As -acquire, adapt and apply. 

    We focus on providing our participants with practical tools and knowledge insights that will assist them enhance their capacity to do their work more productively or tackle life challenges more effectively. 

    Our training programmes are flexible and vibrant while our curricula is fast paced, enabling participants to share in new ideas and practical experiences that can impact their work. 

    Our teaching styles are innovative and easy to follow, recognizing that most of our participants are busy executives who require new approaches to handle challenges and not so much of theoretical analysis. 

    Most ofour facilitators are individuals who have experienced much ofwhat they teach thereby enabling participants to connect better with the knowledge acquired. 

    JBS uses the case study method as a veritable teaching tool, recognizing that as participants analyse live cases, they can identify challenge ideas, concepts and practices that they can relate to in their work.
