What we do
Our mission and our passion is project execution. Our experience covers many industries and a wide range of topics. We work in all phases of projects from identify, diagnose, design, build, deploy and test all the way to operational go-live. Depending on each phase, we are familiar with the differences in respective requirements, approach, deliverables, team composition and governance. In projects we work in very different roles: We put existing projects in difficult waters to the test. We structure projects from the beginning and help to mobilize them. We design the governance of complex projects and programs and, if desired and possible, we take over the overall project responsibility. In the course of the project, we ensure the control of quality, speed of progress, risk, budget and legal compliance.
What motivates us
Continuously successful companies are characterized by their ability to respond quickly to change. At present, technological advances are developing at an unprecedented pace. In many places, this development in the business world is causing the need for profound and, above all, rapid change. Not everyone is equally well prepared for that. The new technological advances are often unknown or cannot be properly exploited due to the company's own IT landscape. The change means that companies have to break with established procedures and practices. This change is naturally difficult to be achieved from the inside. We therefore believe that real change can only succeed through external influence. In our opinion, this external influence is most successful when you can rely on an external partner who is willing to take responsibility for the change project. We want to be this partner for you. We make your project our joint project.
How we work
In order to bring people along in the project, we listen to them well and understand vibrations early on. We are good at communicating content and needs and take a clear stance. We lead the project and motivate people to go along. When it is necessary, we show a clear edge.
One of our working principles is to anchor ex-pertise in project management. It is very im-portant to us to identify and involve the right experts for the project. We strive to make these experts - wherever possible - decision makers. Therefore, we are used to working with a wide range of specialists in our network.
Beyond the pure project focus, we always keep an eye on the overall target picture. In the event of short-term changes or disruptions, we act with a steady hand. We endure and manage conflicts. We communicate and address setbacks quickly.
It is our aspiration that progress and goal achievement in the project can not only be con-sistently measured, but also simulated at any point in time. We develop our own metrics for this purpose. We continuously collect metrics, especially on the basis of quantity structures. On this basis, we can identify deviations, determine their effects and develop countermeasures.
In projects, there are usually "loose ends" that can't/shouldn't be followed up due to the project definition. We customarily identify these on an ongoing basis and assess their implications. We maintain their inventory on an ongoing basis. In the project, we always strive to ensure that all loose ends are assigned responsibility.
In today's world, things have to happen quickly. That's why development projects like to work with "sprints" in order to quickly gain experience with prototypes. However, many projects still require stamina, because change takes time. We are at home in both gears.
