EGWiMe Training Day 24.7.2019 - Neusiedl am See, Austria

Topics such as anger and dealing with destructive personality parts were on the agenda of this year's training day of the ExpertsGroup Business Mediation. At the invitation of UBIT Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland, nearly 50 business mediators came to the Hotel Wende in Neusiedl am See on July 24, 2019 for their summer education.

Ms Dr. Adelheid Kastner, primary physician at the Kepler University Hospital, expert in forensic psychiatry and author of the eponymous book, made a "plea for anger".

In her lecture, Prof. Dr. Rotraud Perner imposed the question related to the handling of destructive personalities: Ignore - fight - forgive - or ...?.

Both speakers concluded: To give expression to feelings in a non-violence manner gives hope that conflicts can be carried out constructively.

Goldene Ehrenmedaille  

Golden Medal Awarded in Recognition of National and International Quality Effort

Quality and Qualification have been a long-time focus within the work program of the Austrian Professional Association of Management Consultancy and IT. For several years these efforts have been driven by Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner, CMC, in her role as quality assurance representative of the Association.

Convinced that quality issues in the consulting industry require both, a national as well as a global view, Ennsfellner soon extended her activities from the local to an international level. In 2008 Ennsfellner took the lead in the project for the development of the new Management Consultancy Service standard EN 16114. The project team, involving representatives of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI) and the European Federation of Management Consultancies (FEACO) finally launched the new standard together with the European Standardization Committee (CEN) in November 2011. The standard is a milestone in the international service industry by increasing transparency of consultancy services. In recognition of her commitment within the CEN Project Team and her longstanding efforts to drive quality initiatives with ICMCI and on the Austrian consultancy services market, Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner was awarded the first Gold Medal of the Austrian Professional Association of Management Consultancy and IT by Chairman Alfred Harl in September 2011.
 
         
EN 16114 Unternehmens-beratungs-dienstleistungen  

European standard "Management Consultancy Services"
EN 16114

For the first time, since September 2011, the management consulting profession can refer to a new standard, the European standard “Management Consultancy Services” EN 16114. The aim of this standard is to improve the transparency and understanding between clients and consultants. This should lead to better results for consulting projects and reduce barriers for the selection and use of consulting services.

Ilse Ennsfellner, CMC, Vice Chair of ICMCI and Chair of the Project Committee for the development of EN 16114, and spokesman in the Professional Association of Management Consultancy and IT, Robert Bodenstein, have contributed significantly to the development of this standard.

Obfrau der Fachgruppe UBIT NÖ  

Obfrau der Fachgruppe UBIT NÖ

Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner ist per 1.3.2007 Obfrau der Fachgruppe UBIT in Niederösterreich.

Sie folgt damit Alfred Harl nach, der im Februar zum Obmann des bundesweiten Fachverbandes ernannt worden war. Mit der Ernennung von Andreas Stadler zum zweiten Obfraustellvertreter neben Ing. Manfred Merten ist die UBIT-Spitze in Niederösterreich wieder komplett.

Am Foto von links nach rechts: Alfred Harl, CMC, Obmann Fachverband UBIT, WK Ö; Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner, CMC, Obfrau Fachgruppe UBIT NÖ, WK NÖ; Sonja Zwazl, Präsidentin, WK NÖ bei der Funktionsübergabe.

Dr. Ilse Ennsfellner tritt bereits seit 2005 als Obmannstellvertreterin an vorderster Front für die Interessen der Mitglieder der Fachgruppe UBIT in der WKNÖ ein. Neben Ihrer Tätigkeit im Consulting-Unternehmen, das sie 1996 gründete, ist sie als Lektorin an Universitäten und Fachhochschulen zu den Themen Qualitätsmanagement, Prozessmanagement und Projektmanagement erfolgreich und kann zahlreiche Vorträge und Publikationen - national und international - vorweisen. Selbst 2001 zum "Certified Management Consultant (CMC) zertifiziert und seit 2004 Akkreditierte Wirtschaftstrainerin sowie BMJ registrierte Mediatorin, hat sich Ennsfellner in den vergangenen Jahren - insbesondere durch Ihr Engagement bei incite, der Qualitätsakademie der UBIT - für Qualitäts- und Qualifikationsoffensiven in der Beratung eingesetzt.

In ihrem Bekenntnis zur Qualitätssicherung und -steigerung in der Beratung sowie dem Engagement für die besonderen Anliegen der Informationstechnologen und der neuen Berufsgruppe der Bilanzbuchhalter sieht Ennsfellner auch eine der größten Gemeinsamkeiten mit Ihrem Vorgänger: "Qualifikationsmaßnahmen werden weiterhin im Zentrum stehen. Zudem hat Alfred Harl eine Reihe erfolgreicher Initiativen im Bereich Kommunikation, Kooperation und Networking gestartet, die wir weiterführen werden." Alfred Harl dazu: "Während wir den Beratertag mittlerweile zu einem österreichweiten Top-Event entwickeln konnten, sehe ich die Fortsetzung der Consultants Competence Circles - das sind Experten-Diskussionen zu aktuellen Problemstellungen - und die UBITreffs, die Informations- und Netzwerk-Veranstaltungen für Mitglieder in den Bezirken, bei der neuen Führung der Fachgruppe in Niederösterreich in den besten Händen."

Als wichtigen Schwerpunkt für die kommenden Monate nennt Ennsfellner die Internationalisierung - vor allem auch als Chance für kleinere und Einpersonen-Unternehmen: "Dass bereits eine Reihe von unseren Mitglieds-Unternehmen die geografische Nähe zu den neuen EU-Ländern geschäftlich nutzen ist eine gute Basis, um weitere Unternehmen zu diesem Schritt zu motivieren. Wir haben dazu entsprechende Maßnahmen und Förderungen in Arbeit."
