10 years of strategy implementation experts
acondas turned 10 years old on July 1. With over 300 successful implementation projects, we have established ourselves as a leading consultancy for strategy implementation. On November 11, we celebrated our anniversary with our employees as well as many customers, companions and alumni in Düsseldorf.
Best Consultants Award
acondas was also named one of the best management consultancies in 2021 for the third time in a row by brand eins and Statista - this time in five categories: Organization, Change Management, Digitalization, Energy and Environment, and Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry.
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 & Top-Consultation
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. In 2019, our extraordinary quality standards were also recognized by brand eins magazine with a nomination as a top consultancy for organizational development.
The "acondas" adventure began in 2011 for the founders Dr. Andreas Florissen and Dr. Jörg Fengler. Both had previously worked for many years in strategy and in-house consulting as well as in the management of an energy company. They identified a gap in the consulting market – supporting the implementation of strategy projects. The customer demand was very high. So acondas, with its headquarters in Düsseldorf and another office in Hamburg, started business in mid-2011 with its first customer projects.
Since 2018, our work has been guided by seven professional principles. These serve not only as shared guidelines for our employees, but also guarantee consistently high standards of project work for our customers.
Opening of the acondas_learning lab_berlin
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.
In 2016, our employees defined our internal values “cohesion, further development, openness and freedom” as part of a bottom-up initiative. To this day, these four values form the basis for the mutual interaction and cooperation among all employees at acondas.
Quality seal & awards
2016 was marked by awards and quality seals. Due in part to the introduction of the acondas values, kununu awarded us the "open company" award. In addition, acondas received the "cardea audited performance” (cap) and "cs accredited" quality seals for outstanding consultancy services.
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 of offices in Berlin & Munich
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.
