Build and scale innovative and thriving businesses

Our Story

Legacy firms are challenged in many ways, but most of them own an underestimated asset: their brand. Other than the disruptors in this world, these companies need to use what they’ve built and connect it with what the future requires. As brands need consistency and evolutionary development over the years, the organizations behind them are often in need of more radical change in terms of their offering, culture, systems etc. Our approach uses the power of your brand as a guiding force and orientation for the future – protecting your identity in times of disruption and disorientation while fueling transformation at the same time. We call this brand-led transformation.

Build leading brands
Lead transformation

What we have learned after more than 20 years of consulting work:

Brands are an entrepreneurial instrument

Some see a brand as a logo, some as a sales-tool or as a corporate identity. We see more. We see a powerful weapon to create trust at scale and sustainable, above average profits. A leadership tool and north star that connects your past, present and future.

Brands lead, don't follow

Strong brands take a stand. They aim for a leading position in their field and create attraction by having clear boundaries. They force the market to follow them and thus seduce their audience.

Transformation is systemic

To establish real change, every element of the system has to be adjusted and aligned with the intended future—from changing how we are organized, to adapt how teams work and lead to change the mindset and behaviors of individuals.

Transformation is human-centered

Transformation too often happens to people, tires them and is accompanied by fear. We see it through the lens of the people—activating them in the course of transformation. This enables organizations to live transformation as an ongoing state-of-mind and not just as the next «change exercise from management».
