Consulting experience in a nutshell

In our day-to-day practice we often encounter questions that are relevant beyond the specific case at hand and which are therefore interesting to many clients. On the other hand, as we exchange specialist knowledge both internally and with other professionals in the field we come across findings and trends that crystallize into ‘best practice’.
