A change project stands and falls with the quality of its execution and its capacity for sustainability. The theoretical plan comes to life in its implementation: Knowledge gained flows back into the system via iterative loops and becomes part of the next step. We help our clients to achieve successful implementation to ensure that the change corresponds with company realities at all levels.


A change project is a complex undertaking. Much content and many potential solutions cannot be determined in advance because some of the requirements and cause-and-effect relationships remain obscure at the outset. Professional process support takes this complexity into account and provides a stable framework. It integrates new findings, information and requirements according to current needs.


Change management is a long-term process that requires perseverance and good strategic planning. Professional change facilitation ensures:

  • process reliability and stability – which promotes people’s confidence in the change
  • early identification of challenges and fields of action
  • extension of the range of options through methodological and content-related impulses
  • support for the internal change team while easing their workload
  • that there is a sparring partner who can provide an objective viewpoint
  • targeted qualification of those involved in the change process


cidpartners is a systemic consultancy specialized in strategy, change and transformation processes. We provide support to our clients during the implementation of their change projects in various scenarios:

  • End-to-end – from strategy development and process design to the implementation of a change
  • In the implementation of change processes that have already been set up
  • Where running change projects need expert remedial help

We are well prepared to cooperate closely with both internal teams and also external consultants already involved in the project.

We combine our clients’ industry-specific know-how and wealth of experience with our own expertise gained from numerous change processes conducted with companies ranging from medium-sized businesses to international corporations. Our team consists of consultants, trainers, coaches and experts. They have all gathered comprehensive methodological knowledge and change experience in numerous sectors.


Each change project begins with its own initial situation and client requirements. We provide a variety of different services related to change scenarios so that we can design a ‘made to measure’ project. The following ‘building blocks’ can be combined with each other as required:
