We are convinced that cooperation is the best way to achieve success, meaning that we will not boss you around but find the best suiting options together. Thanks to our valuable expertise backed up by a strong theoretical background plus our extensive network, we will adapt quickly to reach your goals no matter the difficulty of the mission.
Origin and motivation
of the blended consulting approach
The consulting industry often suffers from a bad reputation of being too opaque or uncontrolled. Our motivation is to make our offers more transparent so that consulting becomes more affordable and less risky, also for small and medium-sized entreprises (SMBs). The needs of our clients are manifold and can only be ideally fulfilled by a blend of classic services (consulting, coaching, training or interim management).
Whas is Blended Consulting?
Blended consulting stands for a consulting model which combines different consulting services that can be combined modularly with each other according to customer requirements. This “blend” – also known as the consulting mix – offers the customer new support options, greater transparency, less reduction, a stronger focus on the customer’s needs and a higher degree of flexibility.
The customer decides which kind of support he needs (consulting, interim management, coaching or training) for the selected area.
The customer decides whether he wants to be supported partially (a single module), integratively (several modules) or holistically (all modules available in the subject area).
The customer decides whether or which parts of the consulting mix should be provided digitally or physically.
Advantages of Blended Consulting
The customer knows exactly what he buys and what he is paiying for
The customer receives a highly transparent consulting-mix, because work content, scope, results and duration as well as costs are defined precisely in advance. This allows the customer to plan better and more precisely than it was previously the case when consulting services were purchased.
The customer only buys what he needs
Due to the availability of different service packages (complementary to each other), the customer can purchase services that suit his needs. He can now purchase certain services individually, or in combination with others, or the all-encompassing service package and thus finely tune his own specific offer. Of course we can provide guidance at each step of the process if desired.
Risk reduction for the customer
The high level of transparency and the possibility of purchasing service packages as required also reduces the financial risk for the customer. The customer can now buy consulting services on a partial basis and can opt out after each module, but has the option to take advantage of additional services at any time if necessary.
Wide variety of services for the customer
amontis offers blended consulting, i.e. communication also via digital media (webinars, web conferences, etc.), and can thus reduce costs considerably. Blended consulting allows certain appointments to be held virtually, which drastically reduces the travel expenses of the consultant and thus his costs, because it is no longer necessary to charge a full daily rate for an appointment (and it is more environmentally friendly).
Affordable consultancy now also for SMBs
Through the concept of blended consulting and the possibility of partial purchasing, amontis makes its consulting services accessible and above all affordable for smaller companies.
The ingredients of Blended Consulting
We elaborate and implement your stragegy.
We face your turbulences with you.
In the context of demographic change, the shortage of skilled workers particularly threatens the productivity and viability of companies.
At the same time, myriads of technological, economical and social developments and changes present ever increasing challenges to profiles and qualifications needed in the short, medium or long term, permanently or temporarily. Temporary requirements in the short and medium term often involve the greatest challenges. Recruitment and training processes are time-consuming and set up for the long term. According to your needs, we offer quick and suitable interim solutions and make you strong, flexible and adaptable.
Sometimes a driving force or an objective external view is lacking at a crucial moment in order to set things in motion. In the course of consulting assignments, we have often been asked to assume full responsibility for a certain result until its completion and, thus, gained a lot of experience in interim management. We quickly understand the overall context of a project. We have a large range of methods and approaches at our disposal. We act in a creative and solution-oriented manner. We have a sense for cultures and people. We intervene where we see the greatest leverage.
Interim management as an answer to special situations and exceptional circumstances increasingly gains in importance. We assume responsibility for challenging and complex tasks of project, program and portfolio management, restructuring, crisis management and turnaround management in management positions. We produced outstanding results and successes in the areas of turnaround management and management after mergers and acquisitions, in particular in multinational contexts. We face your turbulences with you, too.

We design the perfect training packages to bring you and your team further.
Some topics are only of interest to specialists or individuals. Others apply to an entire group or business unit. In best practice organizations, continuing education is an integral part of work and is geared to the targets of both the organization and the employee. We provide for every single one of those needs. We offer “open seminars” for individuals on our standard topics. These seminars can also be booked as intensive one-on-one coaching. Groups, teams and business units may book trainings in small groups to be conducted either in their or in our premises. To best practice organizations, we are a partner specialized in developing, conducting and controlling qualification programs in multi-national companies. We assemble the perfect training package according to your needs and can host it directly at your company’s location (inhouse seminars) our in our office in Heidelberg.

As a thought leader, entrepreneur, driver for innovation, expert or visionary, it is often difficult to find sparring partners to discuss future-oriented ideas and scenarios and to develop solutions for them. These conversations, however, are essential in order to identify and analyze trends and changes, assess risks and opportunities and develop suitable measures. We experienced all of this first-hand. We deal with these issues in a professional and passionate way. We are your sparring partner at eye level.
