Dr. Andreas Amann

Understand, what is.

Explore, what could be.

Take responsibility for how it should be.

Dr. Amann is a specialist in designing architectures and processes that allow for transparency and clarification, deliberation and reflection.

Curiosity, humour, diligence and straightness are essential to these designs and their implementation. The treasure of philosophy and fifteen years of experience in social science and research have influenced his current work on the presence and future of organizations.

Whenever people start to explore themselves in the context of their organization, there is an emerging potential for change, that is fascinating in its powerfulness. The use of this power for the development of people and organizations is central to his consulting work and trainings.
