Mission

Our mission is to independently provide managerial services, in order to help organisations sustainably delight their stakeholders.

Expertise

We believe that being a successful generalist, is a specialism by itself. We are specialized in general management and thus executing many kinds of managerial assignments for different types of clients. Our managerial versatility ensures a holistic view and practical approach. Since we are all-round within the management practice, we also save our clients from instantly having to recruit, onboard and direct different managerial specialists. Still, of the many topics addressed in our daily practice, we deal most with those related to:

Philosophy

Following quotes summarize most of the managerial wisdom we apply in our daily practice and are passionate about to fundamentally explore:

  • “If you believe business is built on relationships, make building them your business.” (Scott Stratten)
  • “Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things” (Peter Drucker).
  • “Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you’ve fed him for a lifetime” (Confucius).
  • “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” (Peter Drucker).
  • “There is no magic pill, just dedication” (anonymous).

Core values

We abide by the guiding code of professional conduct which is meticulously defined by this (inter)nationally recognized trade organisation for management consultants. The code is centered around core values which are explicitly integrated into our personnel policy and general terms. These interconnected values illustrate how we think and operate and what clients may expect us to respect:

  • Competent
  • Reliable
  • Careful
  • Professionally independent

Unique selling points

Since 2007, the specific combination of the expertise,   philosophy and core values of our team is what our clients and partners know us for and most differentiates us from our competitors.

Vacancies

We are an active member of a network of loosely coupled high performing peers who each have an unique managerial speciality. We recruit professionals (for collaboration in our assignments) preferably via these networks. This allows us to validate and recommend them for their professional contributions and helps assure the quality of their services to our clients. At the moment, we do not recruit professionals, for employment directly by our firm.

Partnerships

We value the collective wisdom and intelligence of our ecosystem of partnering organisations and individual professionals. So, we like to introduce contact persons to each other, to discreetly share professional insights within this network and collaborate not only between our professionals and with our clients. We are open for partnerships with related organisations and independent entrepreneurs also outside our network. We believe that due diligence for successful alliances involves at an early stage jointly exploring not only opportunities of synergy, but also similarities, especially in terms of philosophy and core values. Please, contact us, if you are interested in freely initiating such exploration with us. Whether it be for possible intervisions or joint ventures for example. We could also present our optional referral program then.

Subcontracting and private labeling

Partners can also subcontract our services. Additionally, they may want to discreetly rebrand our services, so we use for their clients the trade name and corporate identity of strictly only them (the prime contractor).

Fees

Since each assignment is unique in terms of complexity and size, the level and amount of effort required to execute an assignment dependents on different (interrelated) variables. So, to keep our fees reasonable, we provide our services as a best effort. Clients can purchase this effort optionally: either in one batch (i.e. as a credit voucher) or as a periodic fixed amount (i.e. as a subscription). Depending on the case, agreeing a fixed price for an assignment may be open to negotiation too. We monitor the competitiveness of our fees, periodically. We limit our budget for transportation, housing, marketing, sales, public relations and managerial overhead. Furthermore, we accept assignments only with limited entrepreneurial risks. These measures allow us to charge reasonable fees.
