We support businesses and people in the continuous real-time transformation for the digital era

OUR MODEL

The building stones are all in place. Agility, new ways of working. Moonshot thinking. And so on. The problem is: In most cases, businesses lack an approach that creates direct business impact for these superpowers of the digital era. We’re closing this gap.

AGILE ORG

In the digital era, companies and teams need to build their solutions in the face of unprecedented uncertainty and complexity. And they can. If they manage to build their agile pulse.

How can this be achieved? How can teams or entire companies  create working environments that transcend the limitations and impositions of legacy organizations? How can they become agile in their day to day? Although they are designed for the opposite?

Our framework for building the AGILE PULSE provides the answer. With an approach that starts with ready-for-use access to the relevant tools and formats. And continues by adapting these exact tools and workflows to one’s actual needs from day 1. For true agility with direct impact in the core business.

ADPATIVE ORG

In the digital era, companies need to be capable of turning their processes – even their entire value chain – upside down in the shortest possible time. At the same time, they must become better and more efficient in what they do today in order to remain successful.

How can this be achieved? How can one improve standard processes and procedures by radically reengineering them? And vice versa?

Our ADAPTIVE ORGANIZATION transformation framework provides the answer.  With an approach that makes today’s excellent processes the most important resource for a future that follows a completely different design. For true agility with direct impact in the core business.

OUR SERVICES

There is no and there can be no such thing as a blueprint or best practice for how to succeed in digital transformation. But we do know the core elements: Finding the right point to start (and even more important: getting started). Building the crucial capabilities. And consistently managing the path towards and over the tipping point. Everything we do is designed to do exactly this.

OUR APPROACH

Digital transformation implies squaring the circle. Traction and direct impact require ready for use solutions. But as any digital transformation must be an open and unique process, there can be no such thing as ready for use solutions. Our way out of this trap: Tipping Point Transformation. BUILD-Starter-Kits. And „Dirty Consulting“.

STARTER KITS

One of the biggest challenges of agile transformation is the confusion between tools and solutions. You need the scalpel for successful surgery. But just because you have a scalpel doesn’t make you a world-class surgeon. So it is with the elements of Scrum, Design Thinking and the many other resources for new working and thinking: you need them. But using them doesn’t make you agile. Even more: what you need from the huge reservoir of tools and formats and in which form you need it depends on where you are. What you need next.

That’s exactly what our BUILD Starter Kits are designed for. We work with the teams and companies we support to select the elements that will provide maximum traction for the specific next step. And develop everything else from there (i.e.: agile!). As a solution to concrete tasks or problems. For direct business impact.

DIRTY CONSULTING

Almost everyone who studies the dynamics of the digital age concludes that teams and companies have to tick differently. That different skills are needed, from managers to clerks. What is surprisingly often overlooked: that this also requires other forms of support.

As much as there is a lot going on right now, learning and consulting still take place in the old, traditional formats. Yet even that no longer makes sense in the digital age: if no one – including the consultant or teacher – can know what the right solution is, then companies, teams, managers and individual employees don’t need “we-have-the-solution-in-the-pocket” consultants or coaches. Instead, they need: Dirty Consulting. Dirty coaching and learning.

Dirty because the fact that even the supporter can’t know what’s right means that the support itself needs to be agile.
