The new world in which today’s organizations operate is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambivalent – a.k.a. VUCA. Constant change and challenging market conditions are certainly nothing new. However, when traditional methods and ways of doing business can no longer keep up with the speed of change, it’s time for these to change, too.
Digitization is inevitable. It has become part of the air that we breathe, and permeates every part of the organization – from the business model to human resource development. A digital environment demands rapid, customer-centric, and agile solutions. Interdisciplinary teamwork is becoming inevitable. Start-ups are setting the pace, while large groups are equipping themselves for the challenges of the future.
Increasing pace and complexity are pushing traditional organizations to their limits. The networking and decision-making skills of individual team members are increasingly becoming key factors for success. Equipped with these skills, digital employees need to become accustomed to a new working climate – one characterized by self-determination and trust, rather than promises of a career and control.
We acknowledge that we live in a complex world. We believe that people are the best solution to complex problems – if the environment allows it. This requires the courage to stand up for a people-oriented working world in which everyone can enjoy contributing to the individual, the organization and society.
We want to support those with courage in questioning the status quo. If this is successful, it results in powerful energies. For us, this is sufficient grounds to try again and again.
