In recent publications in International Journals in 2010 and 2011, I described the phenomenon of a new approach to education and training called ‘Gyroscopic Management’ (See list publications). To give the reader an insight and overview of this, I will introduce and explain this gyroscopic management and, based on literature research and my own experiences, I describe how a currently used approach in education and the training of business and management students at Arnhem Business School (ABS) shows that this can lead to added strategic value for management in organizations. This also represents the start of a so-called, ‘Grounded Action’ research about the influence of training and educating for new future managers in organisations, as described in the second part of this paper. The research took place in Romania and The Netherlands and it shows the discovered five stages of ‘gyroscopic management’: “Learning, listening, awareness, accepting, adapting, and advancing.” I explored this explanatory theory further into a so-called ‘Grounded Action’ research approach in which I made an ‘operational theory’ (Simmons & Gregory 2003). This research is implemented in the form of a final applied research in educational and training practice during trainings, lectures at ABS in the Netherlands and at the West University in Timisoara, Romania (UWT).
