Strategy itself is just a piece of paper.

It requires people to support it.

Strategy work

OD has to be owned by leaders

– Otherwise, it won’t happen! (Bernd Schmid)

Developing organizations and shaping cultures

People don’t resist change.

They resist being changed.

Change management

Leadership is a new profession…

…and it needs to be learned.

Leadership and a culture of responsibility

Data is the new currency…

…and we provide support for complex transactions.

At home on the global stage

So that your executives are singing from the same song-sheet —in Hong Kong, Hamburg, and Houston.

Change is complex, and it entails even greater complexity in a global matrix organization. Developing a strategy, rolling out new processes, strengthening a common leadership culture, accomplishing integration after a cross-border merger—all these endeavors hinge on forging connections between continents and cultures. And that is precisely our arena. We have been managing global change projects for 25 years. Our consulting team is at home on three continents, which is how we build bridges for international change . . . in all directions.
