Civilisation

/ ˌsɪvɪlʌɪˈzeɪʃ(ə)n /

To act civilised is to voluntarily assume responsibility for ourselves and the impact we have on others, clients and colleagues alike. It’s more important how we act than how we are organised. We are not an organisation. We are a collective, a civilisation. A movement of many. Our civilisation is built on trust – in the people we work with, in their intentions, abilities and their worth as human beings.

The Big Blue

Even though we are firmly rooted in the traditional values of tier-one management consulting, our company was founded with the ambition to change management consulting from within. Actually, we don’t think of ourselves as a company, we are a collective, a civilisation. A movement of many. The Big Blue is our current interpretation of our values and aspirations. It's a snapshot of what we strive to be and become. Learn more about our story, values and aspirations below.

Results and relationships

Our core values are RESULTS and RELATIONSHIPS. "Results" as in the impact we deliver. "Relationships" as in the profound humanism in our approach to our clients and team. Our six beliefs are the underlying enablers that guide our behaviour.

EXCELLENCE is delivering second-to-none content, exceeding expectations in style, shape and form as well as engaging with passion.

DIVERSITY is the variation we represent collectively across gender, profiles and personalities. Diversity produces creativity by using each other's differences, not just tolerating them.

CIVILISATION encompasses our appreciative interaction with each other, the integrity and individual accountability and the generosity we have for greater purposes than the individual short-term benefit.

FOLLOWERSHIP is earned from personal leadership, superior skills and the ability to transfer these as well as keeping authenticity in everything you do.

FLEXIBILITY because we always tailor our teams to the client’s situation and needs based on matchmaking in skills and profiles. Because our people can influence their career and we offer individualised development to our people. Because we’re all different.

ICONICITY is a self-invented word hinting at our determination to deliver iconic moments with our clients and each other. Iconic moments are the everlasting images that clients and colleagues see before them when asked to describe QVARTZ.
