Upstrim stands for “Upgrading System for Integrated Managers”: this prototype tackles the problem of outdated training methods within the Egyptian tourism sector. The team aims to change this situation by offering an integrated training system for the upper and middle management. The goal is to modernize management training in order to meet future challenges in Egypt’s hospitality sector. Core of the system is a mentoring program that transforms experienced managers into mentors for the trainees of Upstrim. Together they can plan the trainee’s career and set-up an individual training-program.
During the test phase, team Upstrim will define the program’s content as well as the application and selection processes. Moreover, the team will get in touch with potential partners in Egypt. Lastly, the overall learning concept will be defined, as well as the certification and monitoring system.
