The company

riva training & consulting GmbH was established in 1992 by Dr. Ralf Klotzbücher and Dr. Herbert Schmidt as a spin-off from the Institute for Risk Management and Insurance of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
riva provides qualification and training offerings which, due to their holistic approach, impart functional and methods expertise and strengthen participants’ social and systems competencies. The wide variety of topics ranges from change management to business management to risk and performance management for insurance companies.

The training concept

riva has more than 20 years of experience as a provider of simulation games with a well-proven training concept: “Active learning with riva”. Our workshops and seminars are based on simulation games. Participants actively learn from spheres of activities they are familiar with from their day-to-day operations. In this way, knowledge is imparted in an intensive, exciting and practical fashion and participants can easily transfer their experiences and the acquired knowledge to operational practice.

A network of competences

We maintain a large network of trainers and partners from the corporate world and research. This makes it possible for us to put together tailor-made qualification offers in step with actual practice, covering a wide range of subjects. Our experience of many years and our trainers’ expertise allow us to conduct active and pratice-oriented seminars that impart knowledge and are fun, too. Through our close cooperation with universities we are able to react flexibly and innovatively to new trends and qualification requirements, taking them up and integrating them within a short timeframe.

A valuable addition to the training programmes in your organisation

Our simulation games have become an integral part of specialist and management development programmes in many companies. Benefit from our experience of many years with the simulation game method when we put together qualification measures tailored to your particular needs. We gladly support you in optimally integrating our products into your training and staff development programmes.
