Strategy Consulting


How does an elephant get on to a tightrope? Why does he not fall off? And what is an elephant even doing there?

How does an elephant get on to a tightrope?
Elephants are the heaviest terrestrial mammals. They reach a height of four meters and a weight of seven tons. Yet a simple mobile crane with a bearing load of 12-tons is sufficient to lift an elephant onto a tightrope.

Why does he not fall off?
As long as the elephant keeps his balance, he will stay on the rope provided that the rope is a wire rope like those used for cable cars.

And what is an elephant even doing there?
Who would lift the heaviest terrestrial mammal onto a wire rope with a mobile crane hoping the elephant can hold his balance? Nobody!

Yet how many situations have you experienced where decisions were made that did not make sense, but were still implemented?

We will help you to find the right answers to the right questions.

Strategy consulting = Thinking. Solving. Taking action.

Consulting Approach


Every solution starts with a question. What is the right question though?
Strategy consulting means to think hard, reflect and ask the right question.

To have a complete understanding of a question is the foundation for a solution. Following a structured process, the question will be divided into smaller components. These components are manageable and can be used for individual tasks. The composition of these components leads to a viable solution – usually after going through iteration loops.

Taking action.
A solution is viable when those implementing understand the solution. A solution is understood when those who implement were also part of the solution process.

We can advise you on important challenges and decisions. We consult across industries and across functions while remaining focused on solving your specific problems. Our approach is workshop-based to devise and implement collaborative solutions with your employees.

Our consulting approach = Cross-functional. Focused. Collaborative.
