The project in a nutshell
Assisting with strategic planning

A few key details
The Hamburger Volkshochschule is committed to its educational mission (“Democracy Needs Education”) and already offers many people top-class education that’s both innovative and effective. It brings together people of different backgrounds, cultures, age groups and walks of life – all learning together and from each other. In order to continue living up to its goals, the Hamburger Volkshochschule has developed a strategy for the future that focuses particularly on the need to become more outward-looking and modernize the programs on offer. Both of these aims require organizational adjustments and a rethink of the current financial logic.

Our projects
  • Assisting with strategic planning (preparing and implementing the strategy)
  • Developing a concept that facilitates the acquisition of key stakeholders
  • Developing a future-oriented organizational and leadership structure

Dr. Baumanns, Mr. Litta and Ms. Weiss from company companions provided us with expert support to help us develop a strategy and redesign our organizational and leadership structure. In doing so, they combined four key characteristics: they listened, probed, challenged, and incorporated their own ideas. This was extremely helpful. The collective thinking – in which our executives were also involved – enabled us to develop new perspectives. Certain ways of thinking that seemed set in stone were also successfully overhauled.
