The training program logically combines the key internal and external aspects that affect the activities of organizations. During the training, all participants had the opportunity to dream, do planning, and also analyze the factors that have an impact on the work of each member of the team in the organization and the organization as a whole system. Thus, the training has become a kind of preparatory springboard in organizational, institutional and programmatic changes, to meet with which all six regional hubs of the “second wave” are being prepared.
