Empowering business leaders
to drive change and business transformation
only business transformation which is made part of the company’s dna will succeed
… and dos Santos empowers business leaders to master the core proficiencies of successful change and business transformation.
Successful business transformation is defined by three qualities. First, it extracts critical business drivers from the very beginning. Second, it builds a certain immediacy that allows for rapid progress and fast movement. Third, it ensures that the new, required expertise is immediately built into the company’s DNA. Yet, there is no single solution you can easily follow or copy from others. You have to develop your individual system based on your specific needs, challenges, and goals project by project. You need to design the process details and tools and decide on which internal and external expertise needs to be involved. We call this customized disruption.
We help business executives master these qualities and implement a proven successful transformation system for the creation and development of solutions in their own company.
The three qualitites that drive the success of business transformation projects.

Making innovation and change part of your business’ DNA.

“… I specifically chose and dos Santos for a rather strategic meta–question „How to gain cultural relevance with my brand“ … we were lacking a clear mission and POV as a brand. I think the most unique part of adS is their setup – the very lean core-team but a highly-competent huge collective of creators that allows to put various perspectives on a meta-question in order to really think outside the box and push the boundaries. Apart from that I felt that the process is very collaborative (workshop-style) and for me the biggest contribution of adS was to push me to think, rethink and reflect about my brand. Concrete results were a clear brand mission … In addition the project initiated several sub-projects to make the brand mission come to life and improve brand experience … General management was impressed by the presentation, especially the strategic framework …”

Together with … and dos Santos, we have developed the future job profile of the almost 3,000 long-distance train drivers and a catalog of measures that shows us how we need to change in our management, among other things, in order to integrate the new, young employees efficiently and effectively in our company. The large number of our train drivers (Tf) who will be retiring due to age over the next 10 years represents a particular challenge for this task. Based on this, the concept for future learning and knowledge management was designed in a further step. … and dos Santos showed many approaches and ways, which we are already implementing together. As a third step, the vision and concept idea for the future workplace – the driver’s cab on the train – was developed.
