Every training should create sustainable positive effects. Online courses should provide measurable results.

Hence, we have developed the Hannover-Medical.Management Manual to facilitate the practical application of our courses.

This manual is a constantly evolving collection of over 100

  • checklists
  • work templates
  • project plans, and
  • management & leadership tools.

It guides you to implement all the management principles from the courses into your clinical routine.

  • Management and leadership at the highest professional level
  • Do not worry about planning and execution of management measures.
  • Considering the time constraints of doctors, nurses, and hospital managers.
  • Easy-to-use toolset (No degree in business or economics required.)
  • Business and leadership tools adjusted to the needs of healthcare professionals.

We support you in customizing the manual for your individual situation in our courses. After this customization, the Hannover-Medical.Management Manual provides a guideline that facilitates your management tasks in the hospital’s work-dense clinical life.

Develop your individual 360-days-management manual with our help

Professional management with a little help
We guide you through the development of your 360-days-management-manual with step-by-step instructions. For this purpose, we created courses that, first, illustrate the rationale and impact of four healthcare-relevant management areas.

Second, we provide background knowledge about the relevant business principles in the field. In deference to the practical relevance of every tool, we not only use a comprehensible language that does not require you to use an economic dictionary but keep the theoretical chapters as short as possible.

Third, we showcase successful examples of economic tools, business principles, and leadership styles that have proven to make a difference in hospitals.

Fourth, you are now equipped to create your individual 360-days-management manual that is immediately applicable to your (hospital-)situation.
Finally, we support you in defining suitable milestones, evaluation criteria, and measures, as well as a communication strategy that will present your leadership and management activities in the proper light.

Self-paced modular development
The modular and chapter-based approach of the management manual allows for self-paced progressing and considers the extraordinary time constraints of healthcare professionals.

In total, the Hannover-Medical.Managemt manual is a unique concept that provides a healthcare-relevant management and leadership guideline in a practice-oriented curriculum.

Five healthcare relevant areas

Optional: Request some coaching to adjust your mission

In the additional coachings, we assess together whether your roadmap still is feasible, conditions have changed, the evaluation results are acceptable, or – if not – how to further improve your management and leadership performance. We are looking forward to discussing our joint options.

Systematic follow-up

How often do you experience projects that start very enthusiastically and then somehow do not come to an end or show poor results? How many people do you know who intend to change and to improve some skills? They buy the most promising books in the field, watch webinars, book online-courses, but fail to achieve satisfying results. The daily tasks and responsibilities are too often too urgent and old habits are too tempting.

Against this background, we did not want to create yet another time-trap, issue a management toolbox with corresponding courses, and then leave you to yourself.

Instead, we seamlessly integrated the often neglected but essential aspects like project management, evaluation, and communication into our management manual. Therewith, you will not only receive a toolkit that recommends what to do but also how to sustainably implement the lessons learned in your everyday life down-to-earth.

Project management “light”
For this reason, project management “light” is the most efficient way to organize and plan your measures in most cases. We do not want to be misunderstood: We are a big fan of professional project management tools and software. Big projects benefit from high-end project management.
However, experience has shown that using sophisticated software requires a decent amount of time to administer the project plan. Keeping the plan up-to-date, adjusting tasks, milestones, and resources in the often complex project structure are sometimes as time-consuming as executing the tasks. Thus, many project managers spend time to create project plans at the beginning of a project but soon ignore the charts in favor of the pressing concerns in the field. The Hannover-Medical.Management manual offers a simple way to structure your management and leadership measures without getting lost in extensive project plans.

Finally, the impact of communication measures is often underestimated. Change and improvement almost always require substantial personal effort, financial resources, time, and stressing personal relationships with colleagues, family, friends, and other stakeholders.

Having said this, it remains unclear why many people waste a big opportunity for capitalizing on their success by not spreading the word properly. We, therefore, integrated easy-to-execute communication plans in the Hannover-Medical.Management manual to prevent you from this mistake.

All in all, the Hannover-Medical.Management manual provides a holistic framework to achieve better management and leadership in healthcare.

Project and time management

The Hannover-Medical.Management manual suggests a simple, light-weight project management approach.

On the one hand, a feasible (time-)plan offers a binding structure that ascertains the measure`s or project`s progress. And on the other hand, a simplified project management system does not devour too much time, which is very limited in healthcare.


The perceived success of any change project is dependent on the expectation-experience-ratio.

So, first we support you in setting adequate expectations in terms of achievable goals and, second, we suggest assessment processes to monitor your progress.


Simple, but systematic communication measures can contribute to both a professional and successful reputation and an increased likelihood of getting more out of the efforts by engaging the stakeholders.
