Work = Life = Summer
For us, working is not contrary to living but rather a natural and enriching part of life. We view our partners at work and ourselves as human beings first, with strengths and weaknesses. It is this attitude that paves the way for truly enjoyable collaborative work and for solutions that use and develop individual as collective potentials in the best possible way.
It creates an environment that feels like summer. We strive to build this notion together with our clients and partners wherever possible, thus allowing us to deliver excellent consulting services and to leave trails – long beyond the duration of a project.
Good strategies live – they organically connect business objectives with people on every level, in society as a whole down to the project team. Based on this understanding,three focus areas have grown from our projects:
- Business models
- Business plans
- Innovation readiness and excellence
- Due diligence & make or buy
- Cooperation management
Developments in society and technology mean a business has to be constantly on the ball to innovate. The larger the company, the harder this is.
We connect visionaries, Start-ups and large companies to realise real innovation together.
- Business area development
- Brand, product and channel strategies
- Customer relations, loyality and social media
- International roll-out
- HR marketing
How to reach customers in an increasingly fragmented and digitalised world will always be a challenge for companies.
We work with our clients on strategies and concepts to make it happen, even tomorrow.
- Orientation by vision, mission statement and values
- Business unit creation and optimization
- Initiating and managing change
- Cross-functional collaboration design
- Executive coaching and HR management
Whenever people work together, it creates complex dynamics that can deeply impact the efficiency in an organisaton.
We listen, give food for thought, and accompany organisations on their way to the finish line.
Our recipe for project success
Good ideas alone are not enough. To make a difference, they have to be well designed and embedded in the organisation. We use a comprehensive and growing tool box, tailored to the topic, to make this happen.
Meeting at eye level
No one, and most likely not the consultant, knows the situation on the ground better than an experienced employee. This is why we work as closely with our clients as possible, so we can create solutions that make a difference and are sustainable. This works if you move intuitively among the hierarchies and are perceived as a fair and neutral partner. And if you can listen.
We are convinced that everyone wants to contribute and can do so if you let them. This attitude determines our thoughts and actions. At Summer, everyone has maximum space for their own way of doing things, and in return we get a high degree of personal responsibility and independent initiative. It’s the natural way for us - and what our clients can expect.
Excellent consulting services with both heart and mind. Handpicked.
We rock at what we do. The same is true for many exceptional service providers in and beyond Berlin. We therefore enjoy tapping into our cooperative network whenever additional competencies are required for a project. It gives us an ongoing learning experience, and our clients get what they deserve: inspiring and tailor-made consulting services for every strategic challenge possible.
By the way: We're hiring.
