Our people, developing the ability of your people
At Lange Consulting & Software we don't just tell people how to do things. We facilitate their learning journey by exposing them to clever practices, strategies and case studies. We encourage them to share their experiences and learn from one another.
Many people are 'thrown into the deep-end' of the tendering process. If you find yourself in the situation of being involved in issuing or responding to a Request for Tender (or other procurement documentation) with no previous experience, Lange Consulting & Software can help. We facilitate hands-on (practical) exercises so no-one suffers death-by-PowerPoint!
Although our trainers are VET accredited and lecture part time at universities, we do not offer VET accredited training programs (with the associated costs, overheads and generic content). Our training is tailored to meet your needs or your organization and we focus on getting down to business asap.
We are currently gearing up to issue Digital Badges for completion of our training courses. Stay tuned!
