More than 30 years in the consulting world
For over three decades, we worked in the field of consultancy. During this immensely exciting and fascinating period, we sought to support both small and large companies in consolidating or even strengthening their competitive position — displaying plenty of commitment and using brilliant concepts, innovative tools, and ingenious processes.
And then three special meetings took place
As part of a series of interviews, we met with
- big data expert Prof Viktor Mayr-Schönberger (University of Oxford),
- former Chief Technology Advisor at IBM Germany, Prof Martin Welsch, and
- Prof Luc Steels, one of the leading experts in artificial intelligence (University of Brussels).
One thing became clear to them following these meetings: that digitisation was set to change the world and with it the economy much more radically than they had previously imagined. They desperately wanted to know what opportunities and risks digitisation might bring for companies.
Up to this point, they had always looked at other companies and industries and wondered what changes digitisation might bring to them. But they never posed the question of what digitisation might mean for their own (!) industry — the consulting world.
