Hypothesis and scenario thinking



Have you always wanted to investigate a real case for that one detail that can turn things around? Then the 'Hypothesis and Scenario Thinking' training is definitely something for you!


How often does it happen that when you watch a movie you already have an idea of what happened and who the murderer is in the first few minutes? And how often did you have to adjust your hypothesis during the film? And be honest: how many times were you surprised at the end of the film?


This is what 'Hypothesis and Scenario Thinking' is all about, techniques that are used by the very best police forces, investigators and detectives worldwide.


During an intense 3-day training you will be immersed in a real, but unsolved murder case and you will learn to be open to other scenarios and to surprising twists. What happened? Who could have done it? And how was the crime committed? But also, how do you prevent tunnel vision?


The unique thing about this training is that - after signing a confidentiality agreement - you get access to the complete criminal file.


You learn to devise and develop scenarios independently and in a team. 


A well-known investigator will support the lesson as a guest lecturer.

Course format: open, private or customized

Normally, this training is taught in a classroom setting. Nevertheless, we can imagine that, given your work, you would like to ask questions freely. In that case it is possible to provide a private training at our location for a minimum of six participants. We also provide, as you are used to from us, completely customized training programs based on (parts of) this module. We are happy to make you a suitable offer.


Our instructors have been screened and have entered into a confidentiality agreement with various government departments. Creating a specific non-disclosure agreement for the benefit of your organization or service is of course no problem.
