The dynamics of digital developments influence almost all areas of the world of work; organisations are increasingly using technologies to support their core tasks. It is noticeable that digital systems and tools are often implemented from a technological perspective only. The many diverse interdependencies, for example, with the tasks of the employees, with processes and structures or with the requirements for leadership and cooperation are sometimes underestimated.

These diverse relationships and interdependencies are what we particularly focus on as consultants. We support organisations, for example, in dealing with the following topics and issues:

Relationships between people and technology

  • How do we deal with changing job specifications?
  • How do competence requirements change, how can we develop our employees in a meaningful way and direction?
  • How do we support a careful balance between work and private life?
  • How do we deal with increasing acceleration?
  • Relationships between processes/organisation and technology

    • What is the impact of the digitally driven increase in process automation?
    • What interdependencies between features of digitalisation and the flexibilisation of the world of work need to be actively shaped?
    • Relationships between leadership and technology

      • What needs to be considered when distance leadership increases?
      • Which forms of leadership will become more important as digitalisation increases?
      • How do management practices and processes change with the support of digital tools?
      • Relationships between information- and knowledge management and technology

        • How do cooperation requirements change when digitalisation increases?
        • How can the transfer of knowledge and information be sensibly designed?

onion: Consultancy Network

As partners in onion: Consultancy Network we are linked by a mutual desire for a society in which a balance exists between economic, ecological and social values. At the same time, this desire is the guiding principle for what we do and how we do it.

Through our consultancy work we help to ensure that companies and organisations are successful in the marketplace and that their staff produce effective work in a positive working environment that allows them to develop.

As a rule, our task is to help steer, monitor and assess our clients’ development processes. Our work is based on the awareness that the responsibility for a problem and how to solve it lies at all times with the client, that there is not necessarily only one correct way to meet the client’s requirements and that our intervention can produce desired and undesired effects, even in unexpected places. This systemic understanding influences how we work.

The basis for cooperation at onion: Consultancy Network is mutual trust, openness and concern, an interest in what the other partners are doing and in the possibility of joint professional development. We work together for our clients, we exchange know-how and experience and we learn with and from each other.

The partners in onion are all independent from a business point of view and each is responsible for his or her own products and for marketing them. We are linked by a network because in this way we can achieve added professional and personal value for our clients and for our professional activities.

onion: Consultancy Network was founded in 1991.
