Our approaches to develop organizations are based on a systemic understanding of systems. We observe and derive plausible hypotheses on the situation and on meaningful interventions. We intervene and evaluate the effects with regard to value-creation.
With (larger) groups we use formats and methods like world cafe, fish bowl, real time strategic change, future change, future conferences, scenario building, open space and appreciative inquiry.
Typical small group formats are workshop-based team developments, leadership seminars as well as conflict interventions or mediation.
