5 Things That Make Us Different


More than 100 Distinctive Personalities

We are real experts who tackle together with you your challenges – without airs and graces but with a lot of passion. We are able to work with all management levels effectively (from the shop floor to managing board). Our consulting teams are a good mix of mainly experienced experts and a few great, young colleagues. This is how we differ from traditional constellations of many large consulting companies who appoint hierarchical teams with only a few seniors and many junior consultants to work for their clients.

Innovative Mindset and More than 30 Years of Experience

Our know-how always matches the state of the art. Each one of us is spending more than 20 days a year for learning and professional development. We network with thought leaders and innovators. Our learning journeys led us to Silicon Valley, China and India for several weeks to gain new impulses. Besides this strong drive to learn and renew, our clients profit from our knowledge of more than 30 years of experience as well as project with well-known companies and organizations of public administration. Companies like BMW, Magna, Strabag, Wienerberger, Andritz, Evonik and Austrian institutions, 8 out of 9 regional government authorities in Austria, as well as the European Commission are believing in the value of our approach.

Sparring Partner with Systemic Social Competence

We combine the professional with the social: We all have special expertise such as innovation, organizational design, Lean, leadership, digitalization, controlling or agility. Furthermore, with our specific social skills and a repertoire of interventions, we are able to handle group dynamics with a focus on solutions. In coachings or sparrings with executives, we show established psychosocial competences that are very effective. We are trained in different fields that range from systemic consulting qualifications and group dynamics to extensive coaching trainings.

A Special Organizational Culture

We work hands-on and without any „frills“: As a team, we completely engage in your task and share the responsibility for the results. Authentic partnership is not a buzzword for us – we work at eye level within ICG and with our clients. Transparency and to be willing to support each other in order to get things done, are vital values of our culture. We bring in the good atmosphere that our teams have and the openness we share – and when it comes to celebrating successes of our clients we modestly stay in the background.

European Mindset and Comprehension of Local Culture

We offer you consulting in 15 languages from one source. Thus, we can work on all levels in national language. Our country specific teams are culturally deeply rooted but we also successfully work as cross-border teams with our colleagues in European-wide projects because we share a common approach. Our mindset is shaped by positive European principles such as diversity, a humanistic philosophy and quality orientation. For global projects, we work together with our strategic partners in the U.S. and China. With both, we share common values and longterm mutual trust.
