Our approach has evolved over the past 30+ years of experience of a broad yet coherent theoretical foundation. It draws upon various theories within philosophy, psychology, action research and learning. Three essential learning elements.

Action & Reflection

The Kaospilot Education is virtually a playground for learning where you apply theory in action and become a leader who is engaged in creating change through action.


Project-Based Learning

A central part of your learning is working with projects in different constellations – individual, group and team-wide projects – and in different contexts across the globe. You will have the opportunity to work on projects of your own interest too.
