Our vision: Combine experience and theory

Our vision is combining practice and science for a solution development. The integration of experience and theory provides a powerful combination and neglecting either one of them limits our view. We draw our conclusions and recommendations as much from the experience in real life as we do from our understanding of the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings. Therefore, for us a continuous learning and working approach in both worlds is a fundamental element of a solution development for any organisation for us. Especially in these fast-changing times existing it becomes increasingly challenging to stay on top of the competition as knowledge becomes obsolete at a dramatic rate.

The founder: André Gilbert Latendorf
