I worked for a medium-sized consulting company myself for a few years and we mostly worked at the customer’s site. As a consulting team, we supported a large DAX company with absolutely flexible and agile digitization. Every request of the customer was implemented by us in an absolutely flexible and individual way. So we were, as it was on our website: an agile companion in the digital transformation. Reading tip: Agile IT service providers “Please coordinate agility with customers” The disadvantage was that we were tied 1: 1 to the interests and guidelines of the customer with regard to working hours, home office and place of work. But I often see promises on the websites of consulting companies: company events, home office, flextime and modern workspaces. But then I hear from my IT consultants friends: We have flexitime, modern workspaces and home office but that is not possible because we…

Do you have a great software product and already have your first customers? Now is the product also to be scaled in the market and the first major customers to be served with it? Many companies and startups face these challenges. In order to give recommendations, I have created a framework, which I would like to present in the following. It serves as an impulse for your strategy development. My idea is that you form a team to copy the product Scrum meaningful and well developed. It receives requirements and feedback from a technology board. The product is customized for customers by special teams. example : Think of it like a laptop. You provide the laptop with basic settings and the special teams install certain software on the laptop depending on the user and use it to adapt the laptop. The Technology Board The Technology Board consists of the architects…

Consulting 4.0 – The consulting market is changing and is reacting to the digital transformation. Today’s consulting landscape is clearly different from that of a few years ago. The magazine Consultingmarket said: “Digitization has hit the consulting industry. Every management consultant is now talking about Industry 4.0, digital transformation and Big data . ” What does that mean exactly? Since I myself work as a management consultant in addition to this research project, I regularly observe changes in my daily work and therefore mix a few of my own impressions into the text. Consulting 1,2 and 3.0 The first legitimate question that comes to mind as a young management consultant is: What was actually before? What characterized Consulting 1,2 and 3.0? Unfortunately, I cannot name a clear source here, as I had to look for the information from various sites. Consulting 1.0 is thus the classic solution advice for technical…

Management consulting is one of the industries that is highly dependent on digitalization benefits. Admittedly, management consulting is to be seen as one of the sectors that sets up, directs and is involved in implementing a large number of projects for the digitization of companies from a wide variety of industries (Werth et al. 2016). But what potential does the consulting industry itself have? IT management consultancies & digital transformation Consulting is a service that provides added value for the customer through specialist knowledge in one or more areas. The concept of consulting is the often used Angliscism of advice and consequently the synonym for “consultant” can often be found again (Hoffmann 1991). Management consulting, on the other hand, is a branch of consulting that specializes in supporting companies with regard to organizational and process optimization (Hoffmann 1991). According to the Federal Association of German Business Consultants, this sub-area generated…

Digitization as a megatrend continues to shape economic and social coexistence enormously and is increasingly found in almost all areas of a company (Kreutzer and Land 2013). In short, digitization is understood to mean the implementation of business models, from products and services to processes, to computer-based formats, which can then be further processed with computers (Kreutzer and Land 2013). This development results in new or at least changed business models for almost all branches of industry and company sizes (Bengler and Schmauder 2016). Medium-sized companies on the advance Management consulting is one of the industries that benefits greatly from digitization. Admittedly, management consulting is to be seen as one of the industries that sets up, directs and is involved in implementing a large number of projects for the digitization of companies from a wide variety of industries (Werth et al. 2016). But what potential does the consulting industry itself…

When you hire a service provider, you want them to be on hand with help and advice. Lately I’ve been reading articles a lot, but they criticize the fact that consulting often provides too much advice instead of action. Specifically, the criticism means that too much theory is sold at a high level and too little real advice takes place. This criticism hits IT service providers particularly hard. So shows Nicolas Kittner this in a quote on: The problem with most consultants is that they are only consultants. They are on a meta-level, everything is macro, nothing micro. It’s about trends in the market, about processes, about structures, about price models, about business plans and brand strategies. But consultants need to know the micro, they need to know how to turn an e-commerce strategy into a shop, how to build a prototype from an idea, how to develop a product…
