We sponsor education

AdEx Partners supports the Childaid Network
Education for children in Bangladesh

As in previous years, AdEx Partners will be supporting a charity along with sending out our Christmas greetings. In 2018 we will continue our tradition of donating to the Childaid Network. Childaid Network is a charitable organisation which supports needy children and youth. In doing so, AdEx Partners is both recognising and demonstrating its responsibility to society and to demonstrate Corporate Social Responsibility.

In cooperation with Childaid Network we will sponsor a project in Bangladesh this year. With strong, experienced partners, we aim to help 18,000 children from extremely poor families in 60 schools to gain access to quality preschool and primary education in northern Bangladesh. We accompany these schools intensively with social workers and help with the acquisition of learning materials and books. We provide training for teachers designed to improve the quality of teaching and strengthen teachers‘ dedication. The German ministry for economical cooperation and development quadruples our contribution.


Childaid Network - A charity for children

Childaid Network was started in 2007 by Dr. Brigitta Cladders and Dr. Martin Kasper. The couple started the organization off with a capital contribution from their own funds. It is their vision to contribute to a better future for children in need. To do this they want to mobilize a network and collaborate with many other like-minded supporters. They are very pleased that they were able to inspire and encourage so many others. Their charity has become a small but also powerful movement already involving many and impacting more.


What is important to Childaid Network?

  • Support the poorest of the poor.
  • Help regardless of peoples’ origin, sex or religious beliefs.
  • Mobilize energy, talent and networks in the project regions.
  • Work with a network of competent partners here and abroad.
  • Attend personally to the projects and visit them often.
  • Measure the effects of our support and continuously make improvements.

A foundation is there forever. However, already in a single generation we can jointly reach the goal that all of the children in the world can get a basic primary school education and thus lay the foundation for a life of independence.

AdEx Partners #bestofconsulting 2018 in 'Digitalization' category

Now in its 10th year, German weekly business news magazine ‘WirtschaftsWoche’ has once again presented its annual ‘Best of Consulting’ awards. This is the first year in which AdEx Partners has participated in the awards, which makes it all the more fantastic for us to have been awarded 1st prize in the ‘Digitalization’ category. A major achievement for our young company, our employees, and our customers alike!

In particular, it is our innovative approach to integrating and establishing cross-functional agile methods within the traditional setup of a large corporation that won us the award. The basis for our success: Cooperation with the customer based on trust, the perfect mix of a digital mindset and wealth of operating model experience within the team, and the direct involvement of our consultants in the operational implementation with the customer. All this facilitates a prompt response to challenges, as well as the implementation of agile methods and the necessary cultural shift.

We are delighted that our customer-centric approach – ‘We make digital work’ – not only proves successful for the customer, but has also gained us such great recognition.

AdEx Partners – Volunteering for the Volunteer-Based Organization

The Tafel Deutschland e.V. accomplishes great feats every day with more than 900 distribution points and – for the most part – around 60,000 volunteers spread throughout the Federal Republic of Germany.

High-quality food from retailers and wholesalers which would otherwise be thrown away is collected by the food banks and distributed to people in need. By doing this, the food banks also simultaneously promote the topic of sustainability and the reduction of food waste. Social exchange and human interaction is practiced and promoted to a large extent with this work.

AdEx Partners – Volunteering for the Volunteer-Based Organization

As a challenge and chance for the whole of society, the topic of digitization doesn’t just stopat the doors of the food bank. With the help of digital processes and technologies, the food banks should be able to take better care of the people who rely on the help of the food banks. Salvage more food and distribute it even more efficiently – that’s the maxim of the digitalization project.

AdEx Partners has actively been helping the foodbanks work on this topic for around one year now. We work on a pro bono basis, providing the Federal Association of Food Banks as well as regional and local food banks with both our expertise in the area of digitization as well as knowledge on how to approach and manage complex projects in general.

AdEx Partners Summer Fest 2018

Accompanied by a fantastic program, this year’s AdEx Partners Summer Fest took place from June 15 to 17 in stunning weather at the beautiful “Blau Porto Petro Beach Resort” on Mallorca. Following the tradition of previous years, families continued to be at the core of this year’s event.

After a wonderful barbecue party on the beach of Porto Petro on Friday evening, the focus shifted to games, fun and an attractive activity program on Saturday. Besides various pool activities, attendees were able to engage in sports, such as stand-up paddling and kayaking, or simply relax under the Spanish sun. On Sunday, the participants got the chance to ride on a glass-bottom boat or go on the bike tour to explore the nature and the local surroundings.

Everyone not only had a great deal of fun catching up with friends and acquaintances, but also had to opportunity to get to know new colleagues and their families. With slightly more than 260 participants, the AdEx Summer Fest highlighted the growth of AdEx Partners year after year.

Female Empowering@AdEx

On 8 March 2018 was the World Women's Day again. On this occasion we participated in an event in the technology environment in 2017 where there was a cross-industry discussion on how digital innovation can improve women's career opportunities and what the "female factor" in digital transformation means. After that, it became clear that there will be room and time for a women-specific event this year as well. Therefore, we met on June 29 in an inspiring workshop room in a Munich backyard and were guided through the topics by a professional trainer. On the one hand, we have worked out our own brand, learned what the differences of masculine and feminine communication are and are dedicated to self-empowerment. In addition, we have addressed many internal issues relating to networking and female strategy and discussed this constructively. Ultimately, we all left the workshop with new insights into ourselves and the organization's playing field, ideas for AdEx development and stronger networking.

AdEx "Digital Challenge"

Digital Challenage 2018

The impact of digital transformation and the challenges going along with it are intensively discussed at AdEx Partnes. How could our client‘s next generation of innovative products and prospective business models look like? How can we help our clients to be more agile, in order to react to new market demands and changing customer needs more rapidly and in a highly effective fashion?

For these purposes we’ve hosted our first digital event on March 23 in a beautiful rooftop loft in Munich. Together with „digital minds“ from very different areas we exchanged our experiences on those areas. Representatives from other consulting companies joined us at a round table as well as experts from marketing agencies, organisational consulting and change managers, startup people who break new grounds on fully remote collaboration, vintage bankers and systemic coaches.

Digital Challenage 2018

I became appareant quite early that digitalisation not only means strong economic changes, but also extensive social upheavals. In this context we discussed about future working models, the impact of digital collaboration on our work-life balance and our social relationships and the future importance of knowledge itsself.

AdEx Partners is delighted with the excellent employee feedback: we have been ranked in the top 10 of our size within the best 100 employers in Germany

Great Place to Work 2018

Once again this year, AdEx Partners took part in the Great Place to Work® competition. Last year AdEx Partners achieved top marks in all of the categories under review, and again this year this excellent feedback lifted us into the top 10 of the best companies of our size. The employees mentioned in particular the team spirit at AdEx Partners and described their feeling of pride working for and with AdEx Partners.

AdEx Partners does not intend to rest on its laurels. Especially in periods of strong growth and with a diverse range of customer project assignments all over Europe, it is important to ensure that both "old" and "new" employees alike continue to feel at ease, at home and in the right place with AdEx Partners. Our aim with colleagues across all levels and disciplines is a long-term collaboration as an orchestrated team.

Once again, we are delighted with the excellent results and insightful feedback: this year, our employees have placed us on the "podium" of the 10 top employers in Germany of our size - and of this, as a young and dynamically growing company, we are more than proud.

Great Place to Work 2018
AdEx Partners receives the GPTW award on March 15th in Berlin

Just like last year, AdEx Partners scored well above the market benchmark in all of the categories under review. We were even able to improve in key areas, such as involvement in decisions, availability of training and development programs, or the integration of new recruits.

Our employees also found it very positive that we proactively implement their individual suggestions for making AdEx Partners an "even better place to work" – for example, we currently have flexible programs for health management and work / life balance that every employee can use.

These results are an incentive for AdEx Partners to continue creating a framework within which motivated employees can give, each and every day, their best to our customers and their projects. Helping projects, customers, themselves and AdEx Partners to become more successful day-on-day.

On the approach to 2018

AdEx Kick Off 2018

Driven by wind and waves, AdEx Partners embarked on the 2018 fiscal year in the Jochen Schweizer Arena in Munich. Just like in previous years, we were able to follow an action-packed kick-off event by celebrating the extremely successful conclusion to the fiscal year 2017.

To get 2018 off to a start, we gathered on February 1 and 2 in the Jochen Schweizer Arena in Munich. Besides enjoying a successful evening program, we were able to showcase and practice our flying and surfing skills in the 'body-flying' and 'citywave' events. On the Friday, Titus Dittman, a pioneer of the German skateboarding scene and a successful entrepreneur in his own right, gave his keynote speech about failure and how we can rise above it. His entertaining approach made us laugh time and time again, yet there were some reflective moments too.

AdEx Kick Off 2018

The event centered around wind and waves, elements that represent the momentum that swept us into the new 2018 fiscal year. As in the previous year, the AdEx Partnerswas able to considerably boost revenue again during the last fiscal year, putting the success largely down to the following factors:

  • Significant growth in the business with existing clients,
  • Continuous increase in the number of employees by almost 50% to the current headcount of 90,
  • Focus on relevant topics such as digitization, SAP HANA or Master Data Management,
  • Focus on new business fields and industries, such as banks and insurance institutes,
  • with an expanding training program, focus on promoting and developing employees.

 

AdEx Kick Off 2018

For the 2018 fiscal year too, the focus remains firmly on healthy growth, on consolidating internal structures and on further expanding the employee base. Especially the search for highly-qualified employees who fit with AdEx Partners and their clients should continue to form the basis of growth and business success.

On behalf of all AdEx Partners employees, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients for their confidence in us. We look forward to supporting you and helping you to make your projects successful in 2018.

AdEx Digital Transformation Capabilities showcased in article published in Wissensmanagement – a leading Management Magazine in the German speaking region.

AdEx Digital Transformation Capabilities showcased in article published in Wissensmanagement – a leading Management Magazine in the German speaking region.

In October 2016 Dirk Altgassen, CIO of the Etex Group, commissioned the international Management Consultancy AdEx Partners to support Etex with the development and deployment of a digital roadmap. The goal was to set up solutions that would both make and maintain Etex Group as fit for the future.

The development of a road map starts with analysing the business processes to identify and assess both their deficiencies and potential. Further to this, the client is presented with a range of recommendations and clear actions, along with timelines, so that the Digitalisation Journey can get underway both incrementally and systematically. Typically, a road map is developed for a three to five-year period. AdEx Partners accompany the customer every step of the way, right into and through the initialisation and implementation of the changes.

Both the scope and magnitude of the challenges facing Etex in their Digital Transformation journey and the clear and concrete ways in which AdEx Partners is supporting and enabling the changes is described in a fascinating article, published in the Wissensmanagement magazine for business leaders. The article (in German) can be found here.
