Municipalities, Public Utility Companies, and Foundations

Städte, Stadtwerke und Stiftungen

Based on the Newer System Theory we see “municipalities, public utility companies, and foundations“ as a special type of organization with its unique contradictions, conflicts of interest, and paradoxes. This type of organization has to meet special challenges when it comes to decision and coordination processes. With our extensive experience in working with those types of organization, we were able to develop the ability to help them manage the paradoxes between economic, ecologic, and social demands more successfully.

Blended Working

Blended Working

Blended Working enables us to save time and resources when designing our consulting processes. With web-based portals for data generation we can obtain and manage information independent of time and place. In time-saving webinars or online dialogs we transfer this information for a quick and effective data coordination and consolidation. The much needed transparency in consulting processes can be established via intranet-based communication platforms; when required, information concerning decisions and developments can be communicated via these web-based platforms.
