Well-founded consulting approach

I support you with a design-oriented and theory-informed consulting approach that, depending on the situation, includes elements of strategy consulting, change management / organisational development as well as systemic consulting.
In doing so, I provide you with both comprehensive expertise and methodological support in the design and realisation of the solution.

A consulting project usually comprises the following processes:

  1. Clarifying the task and framing the problem
  2. Analyzing and diagnosing
  3. Designing the solution and the change
  4. Intervening and learning from interventions
  5. Reflecting and evaluating

"For change management to be successful, it is important that the strategy and the necessary changes are tangible for every team member. With his experience, empathy and methodological knowledge, Patrick Sailer was a key person in ensuring this "tangibility" and contributed to the successful implementation of the IT transformation. The personal sparring sessions were also always enriching and provided different perspectives for solving even the most complex challenges."

David Vorih, CIO, Siemens Financial Services (SFS) 
and Member of IT Board at Siemens AG

"Prof. Dr. Sailer advised our management team on the design of our operating model and a successful transformation. His scientifically sound and pragmatic approach helped us position ourselves for the future. We are grateful for his valuable support and are happy to recommend him to others."

Michael Pschiuk, Senior Manager, Siemens Cybersecurity

"Prof. Dr. Patrick Sailer has contributed significantly to the success of the project - the development of a change management framework and toolkit for entire Siemens - with his scientifically sound expertise and practical experience in the field of organization and transformation. I am pleased to have Prof. Dr. Patrick Sailer on board as a valued and reliable partner in the next phase of the project as well."

Jessica Maderer, Head of Strategic Projects for Global Learning & Growth, Siemens AG

"Prerequisites for successful transformation, especially in a digital environment, are openness to new innovative solutions, the ability to think systemically and to accompany and coach employees in efficient implementation. Dr. Sailer demonstrated all of this in an excellent manner during his many years as a consultant and coach at Siemens Advanta Consulting. It was a great pleasure to accompany him on this path, to discuss new topics with him and also to learn new things for me personally."

Jürgen Kirsch, Senior Partner and Senior Vice President at Siemens Advanta Consulting

"Prof. Dr. Patrick Sailer is highly valued in our organization in his role as "the brain" but also as a personal sparring partner."

Britta Stutzmann, Partner and Vice President for Organizational Change Management and Agility at Siemens Advanta Consulting, Transformation Practice

"Prof. Dr Sailer's keynote was a great start to our two-day conference! Refreshingly clear, practical, and scientifically substantiated. The feedback on his inspiring talk was excellent in every respect."

Marko Reinhardt, Managing Director, Kultbude Energy GmbH

"Many thanks to Prof. Dr. Sailer for his impulses and discussion in our company-wide SDS Community of Practice of about 50 leaders. In addition to the scientific background, various guiding questions for the transfer into our own work were discussed. Thank you for the interesting new food for thought. Absolutely recommendable!"

Daniel Rauter, Co-founder of the Siemens Development System (SDS), the frame for change towards a lean/agile way of work and mindset at Siemens

"Mr. Sailer is a true enrichment for every summit / event. His presentations are to the point and convince besides competence with charming humor."
