Applying the tools in situ

DSC00006Topager is a small business and research initiative about rooftop gardens in Paris. They have an experimental garden on the roof of AgroParisTech and offer their concept to restaurants, businesses, health institutes across Paris. They are also involved in many research projects to improve their concept. The STRAT-Training partnership visited Topager during their first meeting in December 2013 to apply the strategic tools they were learning to a real case study. We chose Topager because it is linked to agriculture and training, and you also have a very nice view of Paris! The partners split into pairs and each took a part of a tool they had already learned. Partners met with two entrepreneurs from Topager and asked the questions, as if “in situ” as an adviser with a VSE/farmer. The results of this exercise were presented back to the group. The trainers felt as if they had better grasped how the tools work thanks to this practical experience.
