Where there is more than one person culture is decisive.

The continuity of change determines our thoughts and actions. Consciously shaping the structure of a company, the culture of an organisation, is the most efficient agent of change. Because this culture determines how employees act or don’t act, how they communicate or don’t and how they think or don’t think.

Every corporate culture is complex and difficult and at the same time remains almost completely hidden. In the analogy of an iceberg: 10% rest above the surface, 90% remain invisible. Using organisational culture analysis we make the entire iceberg visible and shapeable. That is making a difference.

Visionen Entwickeln

Developing visions. Accomplishing missions. Together rather than alone.

As trained social anthropologists the founders of p4d are experts in culture. And all our partners, associates and employees have their own particular professional and university background, too. They are experienced professionals when it comes to aligning groups and systems with a goal, achieving this goal together, pulling together and not losing sight of the right direction. It’s what we call target-oriented awareness.

When we have completed our assignment your team will define, head for and reach targets based on a common and conscious culture. It’s as simple as that.

Thoughts are the beginning of action. Ideas the beginning of innovation.

  • We explore working and organisational culture. We summarise all our discoveries and perceptions in custom-made studies and generate awareness for it. It’s what we call organisational and business anthropology.
  • In order to incorporate knowledge, we actively involve managers and employees in the exploration and analysis of organisational culture – with qualitative impact analyses and action research.
  • We use approaches of systemic organisational development as the basis of our work.
  • We link process know-how with technical expertise in the sense of complementary consulting.
  • We use insight from group dynamics specifically for the creation of a common process and team development as well as discovering experiential learning as a method for self-awareness.
  • We facilitate dialogues as a basis for comprehension, understanding and change.
  • We set up events as participation formats in order to make real use of the potential of groups.
  • We make use of Theory U during our consulting.
