We help our clients to explore, (re-)design and transform entire business ecosystems using our expertise in business transformation, digital transformation and enterprise analytics.
Our ideal is to build intelligent, adaptive enterprises – enterprises that can adapt to changing situations quickly and decisively and actively shape their own future.
We strive to improve our expertise continuously and to deliver services that delight and inspire our customers.
We transform enterprises. Intelligently and systematically. Since 1997.
We’re not just a team of business engineers, management scientists and computational modelers with a passion for mastering complex business transformations, but also experienced managers who understand business and know how difficult it is to transform organizations.
We're not just thinkers and hackers, but also pragmatic doers with a profound understanding of modern technology and its ability to disrupt and transform entire business ecosystems.
We love working with people and work closely with our clients. We facilitate sprints and workshops that help our clients to see the big picture of where they are now, where they would like to be and of how to get there.
Our approach to transformation is architecture-centric and prototype-driven: we iteratively explore, design and transform the architecture of our clients' business and prototype (nearly) everything, including strategies, business models, processes and organizations.
Make Better Decisions in Complex Situations.
Our clients call us because:
They want to achieve ambitious goals regarding value creation and economic efficiency - sustainably.
To achieve this, they must transform (part of) their enterprise or even their business ecosystem, but they don’t know which parts exactly or how to go about it.
Their situation is inherently complex, and they don't have a complete view of it: highly competitive markets, many players from different organizations and backgrounds, conflicting processes and structures, masses of data, advanced information technology, all influencing each other.
They need experienced managers and experts to support their transformation program.
See the Big Picture Without Losing Sight of the Details.
Our work delivers the following benefits:
A complete picture of complex situations, from multiple perspectives.
Buy-in from internal and external key players.
Co-ordination of internal and external teams of experts with diverse backgrounds.
A shared understanding of where you are now, of where you would like to be and of how to get from here to there.
Quantification of risks and opportunities.
Focus and prioritization.
Decisions based on transparent facts and assumptions, with a clear understanding of their impact.
Measurable progress in short, fast iterations.
Early anticipation of, and preparation for, alternative future scenarios.
Regular and clear communication to all stakeholders, tailored to their needs.
Renewed energy and peace of mind.
Use Visual Models, Computer Simulations and Advanced Analytics to Deal with Transformation Complexity
Our approach uses both soft, right-brain techniques (such as engaging and creative workshops and sprints) and hard, left-brain, analytic, data-driven techniques (such as computer simulations and advanced analytics) to deal with transformation complexity.
We always tailor our approach to the given situation, while following these simple, yet powerful guidelines:
We view enterprises and their ecosystems as complex systems of interacting elements.
We take a holistic, systemic approach to explore, re-design and transform those complex systems.
We identify and engage all key players to gather facts, assumptions, data and ideas.
We build prototypes using informal sketches and diagrams, visual models, interactive simulations and advanced analytics to provide new insights and spark discussions.
We share these insights frequently with all stakeholders and tailor them to their needs to get feedback and generate shared understanding.
We use this shared understanding to make better decisions about how to re-design and transform those complex systems
We make sure those decisions are implemented in practice.
We learn and adapt continuously.
Depending on the situation, the duration of our engagements varies – from just a few days of troubleshooting to long-term transformation programs.
Over the years, we have applied our approach successfully to many diverse challenges.
Whatever our engagement is, we always leave something tangible and interactive that helps our clients to understand their situation better and explore potential scenarios – a big picture of their enterprise, a simulation of their business model, a process cost optimization program based on process intelligence or even a fully interactive enterprise digital twin.
