Our purpose with  CORE SPIRIT is to promote something which is good to be even better.

It is good, when a management consulting company can boast the capacity of excellent consultants.

It is even better, when these excellent consultants can operate from an excellent platform, which provide the largest possible stability, flexibility and transparency.

For this it is necessary, that the platform is operating based upon networked systems, which support and simplify the every day life of the consultants and enable a high degree of automation of the support processes.

No short term decisions shall be made at the expense of creating long-term sound solutions.

Lean processes, lean administration and a focus upon the most important factors of the equation – ie the consultants, the technology and the customers – this is the key to success.“
