Our unique formula for success

In a globally interconnected world and in an age of increasing information overload, transparency among external service providers is becoming more and more important. This particularly applies to the process of selecting a consulting firm. Because management consulting is a broadly defined term and consulting an intangible service, it begins with the challenges associated with specifying the requirements and ends with the challenge of measuring project results and a consultant’s performance. Studies consistently reveal that a considerable number of consulting project fails. It’s a fact that project fail for reasons other than the involvement of consultants or their (lack of) performance and reasons for project failure also include those associated with client organizations. Experienced consulting clients know that the decision which consulting firm to engage is critical to success.. For this reason, many consulting clients trust in specialist service providers such as Cardea AG in Zurich, which similar to recruiting agencies or headhunters, acts like a “management consulting search firm” for buyers of consulting services. Based on more than 18 years of experience and more than 1,500 successfully accomplished search mandates, the practical use of the following formula has been proven to be successful and to contribute significantly to the right selection of consultants and outcomes of consulting projects:
