In order to design consulting processes efficiently, we have developed the special competence of Blended Working in the last years. The ability to establish a link between face-to-face events and web-based settings in a smart way significantly shortens consultancy processes, while ensuring high-quality outcomes and reduced overall costs.

SEDLÁK & PARTNER operates according to the new consulting approach of the third mode. In consulting, we integrate the required expertise for solving organizational challenges with the competence of simultaneously handling the social and process dimensions. This approach ensures that the significant variables of social dynamics in organizations and the time component are included in the consulting process, in turn leading to greater effectiveness.
