Our approach is
Organisations are systems. Systems consist of people, interpretations, rules, behavioural patterns, resources and history. A systemic approach enables a change in perspective that opens the way for solutions.
Solutions can be structured differently to problems. Why dwell in the past when the solution lies in the present and points to the future? We develop in the direction we focus on.
Good strategies and change projects have tidy processes. Much resistance to change is procedural. Transparency helps to ensure people know what’s coming next: what is happening and who is doing what when, how, where and why?
You want to take cooperation within your organisation to the next level or improve collaboration with your customers and stakeholders?
You want to develop your strategy and
get your workforce on board?
Your organisation must react to developments by changing? You want to involve the employees but are uncertain how to manage the process?
You would like to reflect on and develop your leadership skills?
Perhaps as an expat?
palette of services
We advise, we facilitate and we coach.
We develop organisations and leadership.
The public sector is society’s foremost service provider. Public service attracts people with strong convictions. And we’re better for it. We know our way around all levels of the public sector: central, regional and local government and quangos. We know what makes administration tick, what motivates public servants and what the political dimension can mean. We help the public sector to face the challenges of the present age.
Organisations in the health service have solid values and a sense of social responsibility. Hardly any other branch has to deal with so many increasing demands and the continuous necessity to adapt. We have experience with many stakeholders in the health service and support organisations and leaders steer through challenging organistional questions and find appropriate answers.
International teams and expatriates
Expatriates enliven our cities, are cosmopolitan and mobile. But still need to adapt to new cultures. We employ our own continuous experience to accompany English-speaking international teams and expatriates on their path, helping them make sense of their experiences and find their feet quicker.

Joey-David Ovey learnt the tools of the trade as a consultant with Prognos and Kienbaum and has extensive experience advising customers in the public sector and health care. For him it goes without saying that projects can only succeed in tandem with the people in organisations.
Through his years in a leadership role he knows that plans invariably change. Flexibility and arbitrariness are however not the same thing. A leader must be able to take a standpoint.
Originally from the UK, he has been living in Germany for over 20 years. During this time he has honed his ability to listen carefully and not take anything for granted. He now works throughout Europe.
He is a qualified coach and a member of the German Society of Systemic Organisational Consulting and has training in supervision for coaches and consultants from the Tavistock Institute, London. He is a guest lecturer in organisational diagnostics at the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg.
Many courses on project management, self-presentation and facilitation. Participation in group relations conferences.
