Transform Culture

Why Sympaserv’s Service Mindset Workshops?

All excellent activities of a company and the best product become worthless if the service mindset is weak. Service mindset is key to achieve superior loyal customers.

Why is it highly recommended for a company to use service mindset workshops? A company, that for example has decided to differentiate more through services, will mostly need to undertake a culture transformation process. Market researches unveil the fact of steady increasing consumer expectations in services from year to year. This fact also implies a need for cultural transformation in many companies. Service mindset workshops are an important instrument to go through such transformations and has a positive impact on both customers and employees.

This process typically starts in cooperation with the top levels and will be brought to all employees. It’s a continuous process, that’s why we enable your leaders to use effective instruments.

Interim Management

Why Sympaserv’s Interim Management?

“Interim manager with leadership-, sales- and operations competence”

In exceptional situations modern companies rely on interim mangers. Are you looking for client focus driven and experienced service management professionals? If yes, you are at the right place here.

Possibly your management team’s resources are too short to cope with the leadership challenges in services or sales departments or to manage a change beside the daily business.

That’s where Sympaserv GmbH may jump in with interim management. Ask for the CV and availability of M. Biner here.

Companies that rely on accountable interim experts when facing special problems or even a crisis, clearly see the great value of new impulses and out of the box solutions.
Under which circumstances may an interim manager be the proper solution? Interim manger may be considered for a wide range of tasks. The spectrum may reach from bridging management vacancy over support during special situations (such as company founding, growth phase, change, crisis or turnaround) to project management or coaching of leaders.
An interim manger is temporary embedded in the company’s organization and works extremely target and realization oriented. That’s why Interim Management is an “implementation-strong-alternative” to consulting. The duration of such an assignment typically lasts between one month and up to twelve month and is based on a fixed daily rate (plus expenses).
Your benefit of Sympaserv’s Interim ManagementYou will simply be able to leverage potential despite a vacant position in your leadership team. For example a planned optimization program will not be suspended due to lack of leadership resources.
