"Nothing is as constant as change"
Heraclitus of Ephesus (540 - 480 BC)

Businesses operate in the context of accelerating change. We assist companies and organizations in the process of their strategy development and customer orientation. For this purpose we use state of the art tools and the creativity resulting from successful group dynamics. For SMEs and start-up companies, we offer attractive packages for strategy finding, development and implementation.


Project management for customer-oriented business development as well as sustainable process and business optimization are our core competence. We offer certified senior project management quality, combined with expert know-how and vast experience in our fields of expertise. We have many years of experience in implementing optimization projects in corporations with international subsidiaries.

We also offer a project manager proxy service to relieve the line manager as project manager. We provide project resources - also short term - with various skills and competences available. Assignements implying profound changes (restructuring, post-merger integration, start up), we also take over as interim management.


Projects for process optimization and business development must be supported by the organization and the stakeholders if they are to be sustainable. We are experts in systemic change management. With our focus on social and context competence, we build efficient project teams and inspire the organization with the Big Project Picture.
