Organisations; companies

Organisations are living systems. Basically they are capable of adapting to market situations, to the environment, to the partners they work with and to their staff – continually and often without any noticeable effort. They do this using the values, steering mechanisms and behavioural methods that are particular to them and that they have adopted over the years.

Sometimes, however, this continual process of adaptation is not sufficient to successfully deal with the challenges they face. The methods used thus far are no longer appropriate for the requirements of the market; the company and the demands of the market need to be re-balanced. Breaches or crises arise around them or within the organisation which require specific reactions; companies or parts of companies with a different corporate culture are merged; new people with new ideas arrive and cause unrest and resistance.

In such situations one cannot assume that everything will automatically come right. In order to keep the organisation on track it can be sufficient to review and modify its economic and strategic management tools. It may, however, require a comprehensive procedure to deal with the new challenges, to re-examine the company’s values and behaviour patterns and to carefully plan and implement the necessary changes.

We offer organisations and companies the necessary support for reviewing their management tools as well as for devising and designing procedures for introducing changes. We run workshops and we coach project managers, executives and teams in how to manage and deal with change.

In all our consultancy work, be it with management groups, teams or individuals, we take into account the history, the culture as well as the environment of the organisation as a whole.

Marc Wülser

Wülser Inversini Organisationsberatung GmbH

In my work it is important that I identify my clients’ questions and desires, work with them to form a clear overview of their problems and translate my findings into targeted processes of change and learning curves. I provide support in their search for practical options and in devising suitable solutions for structuring their companies or organisations. The solutions that are chosen should lead to success and help the organisations achieve a sustainable level of efficiency. They should enable all the staff to remain healthy and to be motivated and productive. What fires me is curiosity and a keen interest in finding the optimum balance between the challenges posed by the environment, the economic efficiency of the organisation and the ability and needs of those who are employed by it.
