Adaptiveness

Boosting your organization

Organizations must face up to the challenges caused by fast-changing business environments on a global level. Leaders of private companies and public institutions alike are forced to meet the demanding requirements of different stakeholder groups. Shareholders urge constant improvements and highly efficient processes to boost performance and profitability, while employees and works councils focus on job security, working conditions and co-determination. Achieving a smooth corporate transformation backed by a managed and moderated change process is imperative if organizations are to overcome these challenges.

We understand, however, that organizational challenges impact each company differently due to unique characteristics and business environments. Working hand in glove with our experts in restructuring and performance improvement, we support the transformation of an organization to achieve higher adaptiveness and sustainable competitiveness. We design the optimal organizational structure, develop a clear HR strategy, manage stakeholders and coach leaders to steer the company safely through the entire transformation.

Our expertise in the field of transformation breaks down into two tightly interwoven areas: Organization, people & transformation is one. Executive communications & stakeholder management is the other. We also support our clients with scenario planning.

Organization, people & transformation

We ensure organizational excellence by transforming a company's strategy, processes, workforce and leadership/culture. We implement efficient overhead functions and, specifically, a state-of-the-art HR function with a modern delivery model. We deliver workforce management with a proven approach that ensures targeted negotiations with social partners and measurable P&L effects.

Talent management

Executive communications & stakeholder management

Today more than ever, success is a matter of perception and not just performance. Organizations and their leaders are scrutinized in a public domain that places a premium on transparency, openness and corporate responsibility. What's more, shareholders and employees – but also the media, public administrations and NGOs – all expect to be involved in decision processes at an ever earlier stage. To ensure that a corporate strategy can make it off the drawing board, we support executives as they communicate with internal and external stakeholders.

Our key competencies
Stakeholder management

Transforming a corporate strategy into a 360° stakeholder management approach and thereby securing the support of all key target groups

Executive coaching

Coaching on communication and influencing the skills and long-term personality development of executive leaders to prepare them for upcoming challenges and changes

Content campaigning

On behalf of companies, associations and government ministries, we develop campaigns that leverage proprietary analytical insights to gather key content for top management

Shareholder engagement

Support in understanding/anticipating shareholder activists' agendas, in engaging with investors based on a convincing equity story and in building a resilient line of defense to win the battle for sovereignty

Realignment of corporate communication

Development and implementation of corporate communication strategies; optimization of the processes/structures of communication departments; establishment of digital tools (e.g. for big data analysis)
