Effective change depends on a deep understanding of the organization and its environment. The knowledge required however, is mostly concealed inside people’s minds and needs to be uncovered.
We support you in collecting, generating and visualizing all relevant information that is needed to ensure your company’s success. KITEMANAGER offers an integrated platform and provides a huge number of tools for strategic analysis to make sure that you know what you need to know.
All relevant knowledge modules are systematically displayed and can easily be accessed, shared and discussed. More than 80 analysis tools to generate knowledge and to fill existing "blind spots" are at your disoposal.
Hakan Yuksel, Cluster Applications Leader Germany, Oracle
"In only two days we developed a detailed action plan agreed by everyone that is now being implemented in a highly systematic way. This is outstanding. I absolutely can recommend working with the KITEMANAGER team!"
Effective change only works with the right people. Not only top-management needs to be involved, but also the relevant opinion leaders, multipliers, innovators and critics.
Forming high variety teams of some 20 to 40 people, we connect the existing expertise and implementation power of the organization and assure that all perspectives and opinions are being taken into consideration. KITEMANAGER supports maximum networking with minimum effort.
We accompany you in selecting the right people and in preparing them for their respective roles in the change process. This encourages the formation of solid cross-hierarchical and cross-functional networks.
Dr. Gunter Nittbaur, Managing Director, KITEMANAGER GmbH
"Our KITEMANAGER logic mirrors my strong belief that every problem in any organization can be solved and every challenge can be mastered if you ask the right people for their opinion and their support. And if you make sure that the best ideas are truly being followed up."
Our long established KITEMANAGER workshops network the wisdom of a large group of people in such a way, that after only 2-3 days a comprehensive action plan is being developed, which is being sustained by broad consensus and commitment of everybody.
What usually takes weeks or even months is now being achieved in no time: a positive spirit, broad willingness for change and true excitement. Experienced moderators ensure that everybody is being heard and that nothing is being neglected.
A multi-level process leads a group of people from identifying the relevant topics via an as-is analysis and a to-be description to a catalogue of concise action recommendations.

"Corporate success does not depend any longer on the ability to create long term strategies. What counts and makes a difference in the future are a strong customer focus, speed, agility and the aptitude for continuous change. We support you in assuring the viability of your organization."
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." R. Buckminster Fuller
Modern organizations are confronted with a huge increase in complexity, dynamics and insecurity. As conventional management techniques do not really offer sustainable solutions to these challenges, we looked into fresh approaches for problem resolution and decision making. A process that would enable fast alignment and change by utilizing the corporate genius an organization has.
Taking the insights from hundreds of projects, we have developed a smart approach and called it KITEMANAGER. The KITE acronym and its shape illustrate our process understanding: Consolidate the requisite Knowledge, care for the Integration of all key people, organize the company’s Transformation in all relevant areas and assure an effective Execution of defined projects and action points.
OUR KITE is fun, robust and easy to navigate. So, when will you become a KITEMANAGER?
KITEMANAGER describes a sophisticated process for smart change, a web-based and secure management software as well as a paradigm shift in corporate governance.
We facilitate decision making by combining high-class workshops with the possibilities of state-of-the-art IT-systems to achieve unparalleled effectiveness. Top Management can refocus on the essential and employees can bring in their ideas and their motivation to contribute to the company’s success.
We support the entire process end-to-end, from formulating long-term targets all the way down to organizing a big party to celebrate those results achieved.
