Government & Administration

For an efficient state.

Just like any organisation, state and administration face the challenges of global change. Digitalisation, demographic change and better regulation are some of the central keywords. A modern, efficient and digital public administration is a foundation for growth, equal opportunities and quality of life.

How can public institutions react to changes with flexibility and agility? How does the digital transformation of the state succeed? What is the best way to assess the cost-effectiveness of an infrastructure measure, for example? How can public services remain an attractive employer? What does the environmentally, citizen- and business-friendly administration of the future look like?

We know and understand the complex demands on state and administration. With sound analyses and decades of expertise in the areas of Strategy Development & Public Management, Digital Administration & Better Regulation, Public Finance as well as Investment and Economic Viability of Projects, we accompany public institutions in the development of economic and future-proof modernisation strategies.

Strategy Development & Public Management


Organisations are more than rules, structures and budgets. Preparing them for tomorrow requires future-proof goals and systematic implementation.

Investment & Economic Viability of Projects


Effective and efficient – public investments require solid foundations for decision-making.

Public Finance


Public finance is the backbone of society and the economy. Yet the challenges it faces are numerous and complex.

Digital Administration & Better Regulation


What will public administration of the future look like? Digital, efficient and service-oriented!
