‘Humans are not driven by digitalization, new work, transformation & other megatrends. They are challenged to consciously perceive, recognize and act. This is about attitude, technique and change. There is a chance and need to fundamentally reassess and redefine work in order to create a new normal.’
We have made it our mission to develop future-oriented structures for organizations and to empower them to make their own organization sustainable and lead it through the transformation - with our unique cloud solution: the Workforce Evolution Designer®.
In the Concepter, a meta profile of your future organization and workforce is created. The meta profile consists of all the planning units required in the future (‘Future Families’). It lets you develop your individual vision of the future.
The future families developed in the Concepter are then elaborated in detail in the Designer. It includes defining the attributes relevant to the working methods and working culture of the family. The attributes are defined in 8 dimensions, such as the work style.
In the Profiler, the same 8-dimensional methodology is used to create an image of the current organization. The detailed completion of the families is accompanied by the respective employees to generate a precise picture of what your organization is spending its time on and how.
Using a differentiated GAP analysis, you will receive in the Analyser an automated transformation plan, including specific fields of actions, measures and action points. Necessary and optional measures are proposed for the respective transformation areas, e.g. digitalization or work methods.
Workforce Evolution®: The Software
The Workforce Evolution Designer® (W::E®) enables you to perform an innovative, structured and systemic analysis, a sound organizational design and planned organizational development. The software provides answers to the questions raised by the new work dimensions.
Learn how leadership must change in your company in times when teams are increasingly working virtually. Find out which flexible working models are crucial for your business success. Stay agile and flexible by redesigning the processes and the structure of your organization, always oriented towards your individual vision of the future.
The Workforce Evolution Designer® accompanies the Workforce Evolution® process and is your tool to shape the individual future of your company, to initiate change and to support it in a structured way. It allows you to reduce complexity and enables you to focus on central issues.
Combine organizational development consulting with data-driven insights.
Our holistic approach uses the 8 transformation levers (work qualification, work automation, work commitment, work environment, work culture, work diversity, work personality & work style) that influence people's work. We combine sound consulting experience in organizational development with mature software solution. We enable companies not only to develop a vision for their future but also offer data-driven and people-centric guidance on how to get there step by step. We enable you to leave the concept of yesterday's work behind and redefine work from scratch.

Examples of application scenarios
Fluctuation is a cost driver. Using W::E®, costs are reduced by perfectly matching tasks and people. Measures against fluctuation include management development & the retention of key personnel. W::E® offers insights into changes in leadership roles in different business areas and into the gaps between today's leadership profiles and tomorrow's leadership needs. In addition, the potentials identified in the framework conditions (e.g. creation of flexibility in place and time) offer approaches for increased employee satisfaction and retention.
W::E® manages the increasing complexity of collaboration and processes and creates a uniform, structured view of the future shape of the organization and the resulting transformation tasks. By considering the employees as one of the central planning objects, essential risks (employee integration/communication) are significantly reduced. External risks and changing strategic company decisions have a direct influence on transformation processes. W::E® allows us to react flexibly and always keep the focus on holistic and sustainable planning.
W::E® translates current market and technology trends into an innovative organizational design to ensure that innovation approaches are recognized early and to allow your company to increase efficiency and innovation activities. At the same time, W::E® facilitates systematic innovation of your organization with focus on selected innovation fields as needed.
Future Task Roles, profiles of future tasks to be performed in the organization, are derived from the future shape of the organization created with W::E®. The tool identifies the workforce required to perform the tasks and matches it against the current workforce through the integrated M::E® module. In this way, W::E® forms the basis for a sustainable strategic organizational design that is aligned with the future shape of the organization.
