Scientific Advisory and Consulting
The work at our division is strongly tied to the paradigm of action research. This means that practical projects are a vital part of our research activities. The application of our developed methods in projects with different companies and other organizations is thus not only a great pleasure for us but also foundational to our research. Plus, we find that the dialog between practice and academia offers many decisive advantages for both sides.
In this sense, we have carried out many successful collaborations with project partners from the economy, the non-profit sector and the administration over the course of the last years.
We are proud to observe that the methods Bewextra or Vikobama which we developed and wholly or partly applied in our projects led to excellent results for our partners.
Vikobama is primarily used in vision and mission development processes. It aims to create a "shared vision" that is supported and implemented by all participants in the process.
Bewextra is primarily used in projects that target the analysis of needs and the development of a need-based strategy. Additionally, Bewextra can also be used as a basis for the development of mission and vision statements in large organizations.
