“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”

WHO WE ARE

Our consultancy has culture at the core of every activity.

We are able to create value, because – above all – we are experts on culture. Our approach is deeply rooted in scientific cultural theory – an approach not often found in the market of consultants. Through our educational background and hands-on experience we are able to identify cultural challenges and explain why they occur. Hence we are able to solve them in the most efficient way.

OUR APPROACH

In the globalized world of today differences between people can create gaps in understanding. We believe in building bridges instead of walls.

We believe that a strong focus on the effort of cultural understanding is of great importance. It should be in everyone’s interest to learn how to act with cultural competence in this world that only becomes “smaller”. If employees and management are able to navigate efficiently in a multicultural context, it will turn out to have a positive outcome on the company’s bottom line.

We see ourselves contributing to a world with tolerance and humanity at it’s core – in corporations as well as nation states. In our experience, too many companies lack focus on how to manage cultural diversity. Countless examples show how a lack of cultural strategy can pose a huge risk to activities and development in companies. We believe culture should be integrated into the company’s other strategies. Because, as the business management guru Peter Drucker states: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”.
