Materna implements complex developments and IT projects for customers in industry and public administration.

This includes all of the planning tasks involved in overseeing, managing and steering a number of related projects simultaneously. We also provide support with tenders, project coordination and advice on suitable project management methodologies. If requested, we will assess your project management readiness and perform quality audits.
Initiating change is a difficult but inevitable undertaking that every organization has to navigate from time to time on top of running its core business. Deadlines and scarce resources intensify the pressure on decision-makers, so keeping employees in the loop often becomes a low priority. Where change processes are concerned it is important not to muddle through alone but to draw on the services of a professional consultant who can bring a positive momentum to the change process with the necessary know-how and creative ideas.
