Public Sector

Innovative Consulting from Experience

The public sector and non-profit organizations face many of the same challenges as their counterparts in the private sector: Their clients and current and prospective employees expect better service, while their organizations need to adapt to the pressures of efficiency and efficacy. But public institutions, associations, and foundations also have unique qualities not found elsewhere: Serving the community, operating in a political and politicized environment, and being in the eye in all they do. Changes in the wider environment are now bringing new challenges to the equation: How can the wave of digitalization be used to modernize structures and processes for more transparency? How are leadership practices changing with the arrival of a more flexible and digital way of working?

As Germany’s first management consulting firm and premier executive search specialists with a track record of more than half a century of advising public sector clients, we know the particular challenges and strengths of public organizations, be they local authorities or federal ministries, academic institutions or national insurance providers, or many other organizations in the non-profit sector, including church organizations, industry associations, and foundations. By combining HR and management consulting expertise under one roof, we can advise and support you, your organization, and your people in whatever venture or challenge you are facing.

We work with you to develop custom solutions for lasting and comprehensive improvements for your organization: We develop strategies, design organizations and processes, produce leadership instruments and strategic HR plans, and help you find and select the right leaders for your organizations. We do not limit ourselves to theoretical concepts, but stay with you and your people when they are put into practice. This focus on the people on the ground is our strong point – a criterion even more important in the public sector than elsewhere. Our consulting support is grounded in interdisciplinary expertise in all relevant aspects of public sector work and beyond. That is key for truly holistic solutions, because everything relates to everything else: Strategies with processes, processes with structures, structures with people, people with compensation, and everything with communication.

We advise you as your peers and partners, always with an eye on your specific individual concerns.
