After the initial contact a 180 DC Barcelona board member meets a representative of your company for an introductory conversation. In this meeting, we discuss the current challenges and opportunities your organisation faces and assess how an engagement with 180 DC can add value to your enterprise. If the value added potential exceeds our service costs, an agreement about project administration, scope and duration is drafted.
Composition of the team
After establishing the project details are established and the agreement is signed, the project team is formed. This team is carefully selected to ensure the expertise required to meet the needs of the individual project.
Project kick-off meeting
During the project kick-off meeting, you meet the assigned team for the first time. Besides installing ground rules, the team can get to know more about your organisation and its mission. It is the perfect moment to share expectations and exchange the information required to set up the project plan.
During the project execution, our team of consultants works closely together with you. We emphasize the importance of consistent communication between both parties and incremental deliverables to ensure continuous alignment with your needs. Our project execution philosophy is based on agile project management methodologies. We thereby establish the project flexibility required to generate superior results.
Final deliverable presentation
As a final step of the project, the team presents the final deliverable your enterprise’s representatives. At 180 DC Barcelona, we realise that a single project oftentimes is not enough to formulise and implement the activities required to effectively tackle the complex challenges you face. Hence, this meeting further focuses on going-forward, following our aspiration to become your partner of growth.
In the past 4 years, we as 180 DC Barcelona have successfully completed more than 35 consulting projects in the fields of environment, health, education and social affairs.
Comprehensive project experience
We always try to think out of the box when it comes to complex issues as we do not believe that modern business problems are simple. Thus, we recruit consultants from a variety of backgrounds with different fields of expertise to ensure multiple perspectives and give new dimensions to projects.
The project teams are supported in their work by experienced consulting directors from 180DC and mentors from the professional consulting firms, start-ups, and a multitude of players in the industry.
We maintain close relationships with universities, management consultancies and organisations in the public interest and offer a platform for valuable exchange.
Our partners become members of our extensive network, which gives access to similar companies, free advisory from experienced professionals, and the ability to work again with 180DC.
Our goal is excellence but without the heavy price tag that usually comes with consulting services. As a non-profit organisation, our main intention is to help companies that work hard to establish a better future.
