Building on decades of management consulting experience as consultants and managers, we have developed the Problem Solving Sequence© and an underlying logic flow that is significantly more advanced than what leading consulting firms use. It integrates the complete advanced analytics toolkit and conceps such as rapid prototyping, the pyramid principle and design thinking into a logical flow from problem statement to a compelling story. This, together with advanced insights on building client relationships, managing projects and teams and “managing self”, has made us to the preferred partner for design & delivery of tenure-based training programmes for professional consultants. Oftentimes, we apply the management consulting skillset in corporate learning settings, helping them to build the “consulting skillset”.
Our expertise has allowed us to provide long-term strategic and tactical advise to healthcare systems in crisis situations, such as in the case of Coronavirus-threats and outbreaks to prevent damage to the healthcare system and the general population. The combination of in-depth knowledge, a well-maintained network of world-renowned experts and a hands-on, not “on PowerPoint” approach has allowed us to generate impact much larger organisations would aspire to, at a fraction of the cost.
Our expertise in healthcare and experience in serving leading players in this sector has led to numerous engagements on market access and high-stakes business communications. We focus on strategy design, team effectiveness and skill building on KOL and client communications. Our Team Connect top team sessions have enabled many of our clients build their strategy and set up their team for successful implementation.

We advise energy companies and international organisations active in environmental protections on the translation of their strategy to operationalisation and organisation design.

We work with the senior leadership of several organisations in the financial services/insurance sector to define international strategies, accompany leadership team restructuring and capability building as well as train senior staff and young talent.
For more than a decade, we have worked with leading international business schools in programme design, personal branding & career coaching in Masters programmes and training on the consulting skillset, often needed for students to pass stringent recruiting processes with potential new employers. We also accompany corporate clients during executive leadership programmes. Our direct relationship with business schools helps stay ahead of the trends and learn from students and their quickly changing perceived needs and desired on the labour market. This insight is helpful in advising corporate clients on HR matters, notably regarding attraction, leadership development and retention.
