Characteristics of the business situation

We focus exclusively on disruptive business situations and captain our client’s business vessel through the stormy seas of fundamental reconfiguations in their business setups. We refrain from old-fashioned company life-cycle categorizations and “thinking silos”. Rather, we approach change and crisis causes from explicit multi-stakeholder and multi-context perspectives in order to unveil and utilize the real success drivers, beyond the many (too) obvious trivial “quick-shot” conclusions.

c4_cultures_cccccc_39403e_150

Cultural contexts

We have experienced that cultural factors  can have an immense influence on the success of any disruptive change undertaking. However, we know that sustainable cultural change will not happen with the speed needed in disruptive change projects. So we explicitly identify of the various cultural aspects potentially affecting change project success, but limit the culture change ‘project component’ only to the “minimum compromise” needed for the overall project to succeed. Proven tools, techniques and working principles assure that we can keep pace with the high project speed. Still we are laying the base for subsequent, more fundamental change projects when the crisis transformation project has been successfully concluded.
