acondas turned 10 years old on July 1. With our 10th anniversary, we moved into our new headquarters in Düsseldorf in 2021. On November 11, we celebrated our anniversary with our employees as well as many customers, partners and alumni in Düsseldorf.
acondas in remote mode
The COVID 19 pandemic forced us to switch our consulting work to "remote mode". We continued to support all client projects without interruption during the pandemic period, but in virtual mode from our home offices. In the process, we tested many new virtual collaboration formats and introduced them to our customers.
UN Global Compact
Climate change, environmental protection, fair working conditions: Topics that have become mainstays in the media in recent years. Sustainability is also a high priority for us. acondas joined the UN Global Compact in 2019 and has since committed to complying with minimum social and ecological standards.

Since 2018, our work has been guided by seven professional principles. These guarantee consistently high standards for our customers and serve as shared guidelines for our employees. With agile acondas, acondas has also adopted a completely agile approach internally. Our customers also benefit from the professional approaches developed in our knowledge teams and the experience gained in the use of Scrum methods.
Opening acondas Learning Lab
At our Learning Lab, we have been offering a great location for our training courses since 2017. Open spaces with innovative equipment are the ideal environment for our customers and employees to apply innovative training methods to project management (classic and agile), change management and soft skills. Since introducing our customer training courses in 2013, demand has grown steadily. We held our 50th customer training session in 2017.
acondas values & awards
In 2016, our employees defined our internal values "team spirit, development, openness, and freedom" as part of a bottom-up initiative. These four values still form the basis for the mutual interaction and cooperation among all employees at acondas today. Thanks to this development, among other things, kununu awarded us the "open company" distinction. In addition, acondas received the quality seal "cardea audited performance (cap)" and "cs accredited" for outstanding consulting services.
The first acondas-consultants passed the PMI certification in project management. Internally, our colleagues also have a wide range of professional and methodological trainings, which is constantly being expanded.
The 100th customer project
In 2014, acondas supported the 100th customer project and had, among other things, its first non-European project assignment in Singapore. At that time, the acondas team comprised around 30 consultants.
Opening Berlin & Munich offices
Thanks to increasing customer demand, the acondas team grew to 15 employees in its second year. To meet this need, we opened a second office in Berlin. Shortly after the successful completion of our 50th customer project, we opened our fourth office in Munich.
The "acondas" adventure began in 2011 for the founders Dr. Andreas Florissen and Dr. Jörg Fengler. Building on many years in management consulting and subsequent work in energy companies in Germany, they identified a niche in the consulting industry market for customer support during the project implementation phase. And there is great demand from customers. In 2011, acondas started its first customer project with its headquarters in Düsseldorf and a second office in Hamburg.
