We perform projects in the domains of institutional cooperation, policy development, and organizational reshaping for the most diverse clients. Our focus lies not only on developing measures but also, if not first and foremost, on their implementation. In doing so, we were assisted by our large experience gained in these fields, in having worked in international projects of these kinds; also inside other cultures like Central Asia, Northern Africa, the former Soviet Union, and the like. Of particular concern are influencing the dynamics of the processes to be reshaped, and the so-called 'human factor' which in the majority of cases, proved to be severely underestimated. That is, we do not propose only technical solutions which do not work after implementation.
We work strictly client-oriented, and opposed to other consulting firms, do not propose prefabricated solutions.
