Those who stay on the coast cannot discover new oceans.“
The quote is attributed to Magellan (1480-1521). Still today, it has not lost its validity.

Whether you are realigning your organization, building a new organization, introducing new technologies and processes or managing a crisis - change processes are for companies like expeditions. 
THREE60° offers you "Expedition Leaders" for consultancy, interim and crisis management as well as change management -  knowledgeable, focused, pragmatic


Good, new organizational structures can only lead directly to better corporate results if the people who introduce the innovations and live in everyday life become active implementers. Both aspects are essential for success:


Superhuman effort isn't worth a damn
unless it achieves results.”

Ernest Shackleton, polar explorer and expedition leader (1874 – 1922)


It is the result that counts! The more experience on board, the better the preparation and equipment, the faster and safer you can achieve your goal. When management capacities are scarce and know-how helps to find the right paths more quickly: In line with the phase in which the "expedition" is currently underway, THREE60° supports companies in the maritime sector to achieve their entrepreneurial goals faster and better through:

  • Sparring – develop the best strategies, optimize and secure them through reflection
  • Consultancy – plan the implementation in the best possible way through neutral evaluation and consulting as well as additional know-how
  • Interim Management – focused realization, avoidance of delays caused by bottlenecks


Balance the Change

Resistance is not the primary reason why changes fail. The real problem is that leaders plan and roll out major changes in ways that create inertia, apathy, and opposition Rick Maurer, Maurer & Associates (*1945), 2018


In order to open up new waters, companies need a motivated, committed and persistent team. But only few people like to embark on a journey into an uncertain future. THREE60° systematically supports you in all phases of your "expedition" with proven, practical guidance and navigation instruments, e.g. the ActeeChange:

  • Create a climate of change – stakeholder analysis, development of change strategy, change management workshops 
  • Engaging & enabling the whole organisation – Status analysis of employees & project, derivation of effective leadership measures
  • Implementing & sustaining change – Consolidating success and anchoring it in the corporate culture

At your side in every project phase
