VALUES

We don‘t follow standards. We break new ground.

We don’t need a large team to move large projects forward. Our clients enjoy working with us because we have a strong passion for our sectors and like to look at things from a different angle – to provide an additional perspective for their decisions. We analyze situations down to the smallest detail and use all relevant tools. However, we don’t provide standard reports. We enjoy going one step further – if necessary even one step back – to amaze our clients with new ideas and unorthodox solutions.

Holistic thinking

We look at problems from different angles and explore all possibilities.

Curiosity and courage

We look out for unorthodox solutions and don’t rely on standard recipes.

Take a stand

We don’t stop after the analysis. We take a position and present arguments to support it.

Personality

Our consultants are strong characters who meet our clients at eye level.
MITTELSTAND

We know medium-sized companies. And what makes them successful.

We have analyzed the strongest ‚Mittelstand‘ companies for more than 10 years. Some of them stand out and become market leaders that dominate their industry, segment or region. What is their winning formula? What do these upper 5% do differently? We know the top companies in our industries and have analyzed their strategies. We know which strategic decisions have put them on the right track.
The first step is to understand our clients‘ vision – the vision of how they want their company to be. Then we penetrate their business model, their figures, compare them to KPIs from our ‚Mittelstand‘ database and analyze the market and competition. Our expertise allows us to draw the right conclusions and give sound recommendations. Tailor-made but without losing sight of the benchmarks.

Our team.
