Orchestration of people and business – Consulting approach

WHAT DO AN ORCHESTRA AND MANAGEMENT HAVE IN COMMON?

An orchestra can be seen as a symbol for successful cooperation – in any possible size or composition. Many individual tunes come together as a whole; soloists as well as second or third violins, the conductor or the composer are of importance. Fortissimo passages are followed by melodic moments of tranquility. Moreover, an orchestra is exemplary for the pursuit of quality as well as an efficient and effective management policy and conflict resolution strategy. Nowhere else do experts work together so closely, being required to coordinate and “subordinate” to a collective sound. Diversity is not merely seen as a challenge – the variety of instruments is key to a wonderful experience.

WHAT DOES AN ORCHESTRA HAVE TO DO WITH OUR CONSULTING APPROACH?

Analogies of such nature have shaped the marenas view on the complex organizational structures of our clients. The most decisive common ground between an orchestra and our consulting approach OPB is the successful cooperation in terms of a piece of work, a vision or shared project objectives. Technical know-how (the hard factors) is worth nothing without the willingness to cooperate and interplay (the soft factors) as well as the focus on a collective musical experience. The individual (musician or employee) becomes part of a whole. All participants are committed to a common vision along with a comprehensive (company) objective.

Every performance of music reflects the individual combination of participating musicians as well as the underlying musical score. Similarly to searching for the ideal arrangement of music, we aspire to find individual solutions for our projects, adjusted to project goals and customer needs. This solution has to consider a variety of factors in order to guarantee the optimal cooperation. For this approach to succeed, all participants have to interact with and listen to each other.

marenas focuses on all relevant, directly or indirectly affected areas, on the so-called hard and soft factors considering the necessary emphasis and prioritization. In view of the above, the mode of action and selection of methods takes place “orchestrated” according to the requirements of the specific project or client environment.
