Zbigniew Brzezinski to rico (#1)

They compete with the strat houses for operational strategy but not corporate strategy work. Most of the works seems to be situation in Bavaria, strong agricultural base which is thier major skillset. Fees tend to be low but salaries very high comapred to market, which means bonus' are quite low (25% ish). Interview process seems very convoluted: 4 face-to-face interviews and 3 case studies. A lot of people regard them quite highly, however I think there business model has major structural flaws and I see retrenchment into core competencies rather than expansive growth.

rico to Zbigniew Brzezinski (#2)

Hi Zbigniew,

thanks for your comment.

Where did you get these information? Why do you think, that they won´t grow up a substantial management consulting practice beside their core competencies along business process optimization and ARIS and such stuff?

Can someone tell me sth about their projects in management consulting?

Merely IT-implementation or often conceptual work and afterwards implementation by technical consultants?

What could I expect to do?

me again.

When I browsed through their HP, I found out, that maybe a small group within IDS takes on strategy work.

Why could it be no future core competency when they compete successfully with strat houses today?

Business Strategy

Strategy development

Market and competitor analysis

Balanced Scorecard


BPM strategy and governance

Process lifecycle management

Process performance management

Process target costing

Business Reengineering

Reorganization and restructuring

M&A and post-merger integration (PMI)

Another inside/opinion would be great.

Rico, I wouldn't bother listening to ZB, none of the rest of us do! After all , he still hasn't mastered basic grammar :

"however I think there business model"

There is no whatsoever strategy group in IDS. I work in Germany for one of the main strat houses and I never competed with them or came in contact with any IDS-project that was strategy related. The majority of projects seem to be somehow ARIS-based (I have seen some of those)

Maybe they are a small group, some kind of advance party...

This sounds not unrealistic at all to me...

same anon to rico (#9)

very very unlikely - why should anybody capable of doing strategy work join ids (if he/she can do more interesting projects and earn more money elsewhere). Why should anyone give a strategy project to ids if the accentures of this world are already struggling to get any strategy assignments? Why have I never seen/heard anything about an ids strategy project in many years of consulting work in Germany.

IDS is doing very good on operational level, but only because they go very much into process details. This is their main advantage.

Do not forget that the main reason they are keeping services such 'strategy' and process consulting is to sell their ARIS licenses and to win SAP implementation projects. This is from where the revenue comes. But even in SAP implementation market they are mainly targeting SMEs.

Performance management services sounds good, but keep in mind that is a quite IT oriented stuff.
