Focus on the people

Our team of experts brings many years of experience in strategic and operational projects, extensive technical and methodological knowledge, as well as detailed industry expertise. Depending on the client’s requirements, this diversity of expertise is bundled in interdisciplinary teams.

What makes these teams special is the close and trusting cooperation as well as the high esteem for personal interaction — both internally and with our clients.

“We work personally” is one of our four consulting principles on which we base our work.

Holistic project approach

We look at our clients’ projects from different perspectives right from the start, always taking into account the four dimensions of “strategy”, “processes”, “organization” and “people”.

  • For the strategic orientation, we prepare market and competition analyses, jointly develop business field and corporate strategies, and define innovative products and service portfolios.
  • For the design of processes, we use benchmarks and best practices, improve core processes with lean methods, for example, and develop performance indicators for process control.
  • To optimize the organization, we create transparency through functional analyses, align the organizational structure with strategic goals and introduce control models to navigate the organization.
  • For motivated employees, we accompany change processes actively and purposefully, evaluate employee skills, promote commitment, and coach employees individually and in a forward-looking manner.

Sustainability commitment

We want to contribute to a sustainable future. Not only indirectly through the changes we implement for clients, but also directly through our own actions within the company. That is why we continue to drive our sustainability process forward.

Retroactively from 2019, we will report voluntarily and regularly on our sustainability efforts and on the further development of our sustainability strategy. To ensure high quality and transparency as well as uniform assessment standards, reporting is carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the German Sustainability Code (DNK). This code enables companies to present their sustainability commitment in a transparent, comparable, and thus also descriptive manner. Reporting is carried out every two years.
