Our Strategy

Our consulting approach is characterized by consequential systemic thinking and efficient action:

  • Understanding the culture of the consulted organization is a crucial prerequisite.

  • The impact and sustainability of the interventions will be continuously monitored and re-aligned, as required, with the agreed stated objective.

  • Engaging the various stakeholder groups in the development of the organization is another prerequisite for successfully embedding change within the system.

Inspired by the Royal Society of Arts – Animate, we’ve managed to bring one more partner on board, Ralf Haake. Ralf is an experienced consultant and an artist capable to visualize a workshop simultaneously. The results are amazing and prove that ”A picture tells more than a thousand words”.

Pro bono: Refugees

Touched by the squalor of the refugees coming to Europe in 2015 and being convinced that people need support in their home regions to prevent an even bigger mass exodus, we are accompanying a project that will hopefully contribute to the stabilization of a refugee camp in Jordan. The plan is to build a health center and the necessary infrastructure with involvement and training of people in the camp.
