Yes or No?

The right decision is never easy to make. Especially in management.

So it is highly important to make that decision in the right manner:



Combining strategic thinking and organizational expertise. Together we implement change that lasts.



Interactive workshop formats and involvement of executives and experts.



Early-on alignment and deliberate communication. Tough analyses and critical questioning.

"Vancore didn't force a one-size-fits-all approach like the large strategy consulting firms. They used an easy to follow, highly effective process that stimulated our creativity and guided us towards agreement on the required strategic adjustments."

Strategy requires a holistic approach.

"The Vancore team ensured transparency, openness, and structured discussions. And they moderated the at times quite turbulent decision-finding with aplomb. There is no better way to achieve one-team, one-voice, one-strategy!"

People make decisions, not corporations.

What we do

Yes or no. Answers are often simple. The process to get there is not. Too many factors must be considered in a complex world - not to mention the individual needs of the various stakeholders.

  • We ignite controlled explosions against operational blindness.
  • We ask analytically, without losing sight of the implementation.
  • We think visionary and concrete, work holistically and individually.

What we offer

Focus – Strategies and Business Models
Dialogues, Moderation, Strategy Audits, Development and Steering of Strategies, New Business Models, Innovation Processes

Mindset – People and Change
Corporate Culture and Brand, Coaching, Change Management and Communication, Leadership, HR Development, Training Concepts

What is BASICS?
BASICS is a multi-stage analytical process and stands for:
Baseline | Assumptions | Strategy | Implications | Commitment | Sustainability.

With the BASICS tool, you can realistically estimate your strategic fitness in approx. 15 minutes. You will recognize fundamental steps in the strategic decision-making process and will be able to act more effectively in the future.

What do better decisions get you?

  • You lower costs because you resolve internal ambiguities
  • You gain time because you focus on the essentials
  • You increase sales because you have time for your customers
