All those years we have been following several principles:

  • Any project can be successful only if done jointly by consultant and client
  • Project can be considered as successful inly if it helps client to see its business from new point of view
  • Project success is always success of client while consultant only accompanies him to this success
  • Only cross-industry exchange provided better results
  • Clients needs no scientific analysis of its business but practical solutions and initiatives
  • Any project can be successful only if it is interesting for consultants and analysts and satisfies their professional and creative passion
