Our Credo

The combination of knowledge, experience as well as the use of the “right people, at the right place and at the right time” enable maximum efficiency in our projects – every Euro you invest with us also brings you measurable added value.

We simplify companies.

We simplify companies, take out complexity and focus on the essential aspects. This is how we create an efficient working environment.

We are consultants, managers and executives in one person.

We bring together the best competencies to meet our clients’ challenges. Agile and straightforward.

We listen and think our way in.

Transparency and objectively measurable success determine our approach and actions. You receive regular feedback to work in a resource-saving way and to avoid additional work.

We work in a goal-oriented manner.

The focus is on you as the client and our common, agreed goal – we charge for services that pay off in the end.

This is how we proceed

Every project starts with a short status-quo assessment and the agreement of goals. During the subsequent implementation, we apply elements of agile project management and use powerful tools. In this way, we reliably achieve the common goal we are striving for.

At the same time, we maintain the flexibility to react to unforeseen events or desired changes. Our own digital platform offers the possibility to organize the project work. It regulates the methodical cooperation of internal and external experts.

At the same time, it ensures that the targets are met and that the agreed values are adhered to in their spirit.
Regular reports, figures, data, and facts help to document progress promptly, keep it transparent and explain it in a comprehensible way.


The idea had already revolutionized the automotive industry 100 years ago: To break down complexity into the smallest process units. We have transferred this approach to our consulting work. This ensures success and sustainable independence from specialists. Among our drawing cards are business field expansion, IT and organization and negotiation management. With field-tested techniques and data collection, you create new negotiating leeway for your business success. We are happy to work on a contingency basis, which means an additional profit opportunity for you. You are looking for qualified personnel, have a bottleneck situation or need support for a temporary project? We can help you with recruiting and employee contact. If you are overburdened with work or special knowledge is needed temporarily – we will be happy to advise you in terms of interim management. We have access to more than 80 interim managers and specialists who are experienced enough to find their way to the target in a short time. Your company is in trouble? We help with our change management. We are used to quickly picking up the thread in difficult situations, presenting credible plans and restoring confidence in the company and the people acting. Together with you, we realign the company for the future.
