Our public sector team is working on ambitious projects to support government and public institutions on finding forward-looking solutions. We aim to be a trusted and constructive partner for the public institutions that shape the world we live in.
Technological change and globalization are positive drivers for growth and prosperity. Governments are shaping this process, but also have to adapt to the new environment. Dynamic globalization is increasing the need for international alliances and joint initiatives to meet challenges such as climate change and terrorism. At the same time, international trade and capital flows are leading to ever increasing competition between countries, thus putting pressure on domestic policies. Labor cost advantages in developing countries are decreasing opportunities for low-skilled labor in developed countries as production is outsourced. The resulting unemployment is testing public administration and finances. In addition, demographic change is challenging the established social security systems and calling for major shifts in the social architecture.
Moreover, migration is creating both new impulses and new conflicts for our communities. The changing conditions of modern societies are demanding innovative approaches to social policy, be it to promote diversity and work-life balance, or to establish awareness of the aging population.
These are the topics facing our public sector teams as they work with their clients. We:
- Develop strategies that respond to today's challenges and make practical recommendations in all areas of public policy
- Use our expertise to support the transformation of public administrations into modern, people-friendly institutions and increase efficiency
- Advise companies and investors on how to turn previously publicly funded activities into successful businesses, e.g. with public private partnerships (PPP)
Our team merges knowledge and experience from a wide field of educational and professional backgrounds. This multidisciplinary approach helps us understand our clients' needs and customize the best solution for them. As the leading public sector strategy consultancy and a well-established partner of governmental institutions, such as those in Germany, Austria, France, Italy, CEE and Russia, we have proven that our ideas work in practice. We support our clients with a network of distinguished experts in politics, academia and society.
