What does your company really need: to redesign its Intranet or to change how people deal with information? To introduce social collaboration or the change how people work together? To distill knowledge into wikis and databases or to create a culture of knowledge sharing and transparency?
While not mutually exclusive, most projects focus on the first half of the equation so heavily, that they forget the second, much more relevant half.
This is where we come in: we take the focus off from technology and “the solution” and put it on the problems your organization needs to solve. And on the change in behavior that is needed in order for any serious digital initiative to succeed.
We, Schillerwein Net Consulting, based in Switzerland, position ourselves as expert consultants and advisors for the Digital Transformation of Work. When starting out back in 2006, our focus was already on the business value that can be created by properly applying digital technologies. “Creating high-value Intranets” used to be our slogan back then.
While the instruments come under a variety of different names now – Social Intranets, Digital Workplace, Collaboration, Connected Enterprise etc. – we still focus on enabling better work practices by helping our clients approach their projects by first looking at the “why?” (strategy, challenges, business outcomes) instead of the “what?” (technology, features, etc.).
Doesn’t sound like too great a difference? Well, it’s actually one that makes all the difference!
As a company we are …
… small by design …
… independent by choice …
… and most flexible by making use of our large international network of partners.
