Our work focus is grounded in joint experiential concept development and practice. This liaison has developed through long-standing working relationships and is built on mutual trust between all team members.
Our understanding of working as a TEAM is to learn together by jointly developing ideas and concepts, to work together as peers and reflect on experiences in order to improve our services and products continuously.

- PICOTEAM Ltd., United Kingdom – Germany
- PICO Academy, South Africa

National PICO organisations are linked through PICOTEAM Ltd.,an international network organisation. PICOTEAM Ltd. was created as an umbrella organisation in order to provide a formal setting and core services (e. g. product development, quality assurance, international backstopping) for PICO team members and national PICO organisations. PICOTEAM is managed by a core group of professionals leading the team in terms of coordinating joint activities, conceptual orientation, development of products and services. Apart from the core team, a larger group of associated professionals who share the same spirit of working together also join PICOTEAM.
