Project Cycle

Well-planned projects lay the foundation for sustainable results and promote the relationship between the actors involved. The life cycle of the HGM project is made up of five phases that serve as an orientation framework for systematic implementation. At each stage, we involve experts from various fields in order to successfully utilize both the different concerns and the expertise of all those involved for the project.
Strategy Workshop

The initial strategy workshop plays a central role. The aim is to sensitize all stakeholders to the topic of HGM, create a uniform basis and jointly develop the framework and future direction. It is also important to collectively clarify the question of strategic objectives, i.e. which hard and soft goals are to be achieved in the short, medium and long term with the implementation of an HGM.



The analysis focuses on the health behavior of employees and students as well as their work and study situation. Risks, hazards and stress factors as well as individual and structural resources are identified. In addition, it provides information on the suspected causes of existing health problems and forms the basis for the definition of behavioral and structural preventative support measures.

HGM- Workshops

In the HGM workshops, existing health-related measures are assigned to the previously identified needs in close cooperation with the expert panel. In parallel, new target group-oriented offers for healthy studying, research and working are initiated here.

Planning Phase

In the planning phase of the project, all the necessary conditions are created to put the previously developed measures into practice at Humboldt-Universität.



The subject of this stage is the practical implementation of the decided behavioral and structural prevention measures.



In the final phase of the project cycle, the focus is on a process-based evaluation, which is presented to the HGM Steering Committee of Humboldt University at regular intervals. The aim here is to clarify the following questions:
  • Have the necessary conditions and structures been created to make the goals set at the beginning more achievable (structural evaluation)?
  • Have these goals already been achieved (evaluation of results)?
  • Have the implemented processes run smoothly (process evaluation)?
