The magazine was founded in 1990 by the specialist editor Jürgen Graf and the publisher Gerhard May and appeared quarterly in the first few years. The task of the publication should be to create more transparency in the area of ​​executive training.

Today, the trade journal informs everyone involved in operational change processes: managers, employees and trainers.
