Success is shapeable

Our project approach has been derived from our integrated consulting model and the functional, industrial and methodical competences.

Within the initialization phase of projects we support our customers by brainstorming and the identification of options:

  • Strategy enhancements
  • Acquisition objects or sale of business areas
  • Design or optimization of the operation model and its content

Here, the course will be set for a successful realization. Realistic business cases and realization plans are not only the base for the right decision at the end of the initialization phase. The realization will not succeed, if the project starts with the wrong framework.

Within the realization phase, we take the role as a programme or project leader and critical positions within the project organization until “Go-Live”. We are “interim manager” as well as consultant for our customer and steer projects for example to raise efficiency, to integrate companies or units, to realize new processes or to integrate new platforms.

The project supervision often ends not with the “Go-Live“. Based on our experience within operations, we support our customers to stabilize and successfully transfer new platforms for core banking, capital markets or new sourcing relations within the first weeks or month into operation.

Experienced with strong implementation focus

We combine know-how from the financial services and technology sectors for our projects.

In our team, management competence meets detailed industry, functional and methodical know-how - guaranteeing customized solutions and sustainable success for our customers.

The high implementation rate results from our experience which we have gained over many years in numerous projects which in turn have proven their success.

We do not only work with you to choose the way to go, we also guide the implementation until the objectives have been met.
