We provide managerial services for a wide range of functional disciplines, such as: marketing, communications, sales, purchasing, quality, finance, human resources and IT (infrastructure). Our refreshing view is partly due to our diverse portfolio of assignments from different types of clients and allows us to deliver our services, both effectively and efficiently. At reasonable fees, we independently provide following services:
Hired external experts get things done at their clients often more easily and are neutrally positioned (to advice and act objectively). They revive or increase constructive energy at clients and thus (re)create momentum for organisational changes. They may also act as a discreet proxy between individual stakeholders to restore or smoothen cooperation between them. Letting others deal with the risks of organisational changes is another motivation for hiring external specialists.
When clients have insufficient managerial capacity and/ or expertise, we help them with solving complex, large and/ or unique managerial cases. This service covers the entire spectrum of management consulting from:
- merely describing and diagnosing current organisational situations till,
- analysing and recommending how to improve such situations till,
- actually helping with implementation of our recommendations.
In typical cases, we (together with carefully identified stakeholders) strategically redefine and tactically redesign the ex- and/ or internal services of our clients.
To deliver a high and consistent quality of management consultancy, we follow this iterative procedure, as described by this (inter)nationally recognized trade organisation for management consultants:
To achieve one’s goals more effectively and efficiently, one may use the guidance from an independent senior. Similarly, a professional can gain insight via a coach on how to independently continue and speed up one’s professional growth. We help managers to fully use and grow their managerial potential. Such growth may be self initiated by a coachee and/ or encouraged by the coachee’s line manager, when for example onboarding and training is considered to be insufficiently effective and/ or efficient.
We provide this service by first gaining clarity on the manager’s personal motivation, professional goals and bottlenecks. Next, we follow a personalised approach, during recurring and/ or ad hoc one-on-one sessions with the manager. This approach may include: building mutual trust, encouraging metacommunication, helping observe one’s situation, reflecting one’s behaviour for mindful assessment, raising awareness using thought-provoking creativity, inspiring to gain constructive insights, exploring alternative scenarios, illustrating by example, suggesting to experiment with other methods and/ or tools, guiding with improving one’s situation and eliciting client-generated paths of self development.
Ad interim management
We help assuring the continuity of the daily business of our clients, when they are temporary short on managerial capacity. During a limited period agreed in advance, we fulfill specific managerial responsibilities with all the associated duties and powers, thus helping to assure ongoing operations of an organisation or department. As a temporary deputy, we act (assure and control) by virtue of the agreed mandate. If relevant, this may include helping with recruiting and onboarding a replacing employee for a permanent position. As an authorized manager, we can also help set up or dissolve (partial) departments of our clients. This particular service is provided exclusively at non statutory and non policy defining level.
