Who we are
TETRAKTYS CONCEPT MANAGEMENT is a strategic consulting firm specialized in transition management, consulting and support assignments with a focus on accelerating growth and transforming enterprises through innovation.
When our clients call on us, we apply our unique strategic management approach connecting up and unlocking synergies across all enterprise functions by establishing innovation as the driving force powering your expansion.
We consider ten key points, each of which accounts for an enterprise function or mission in the broad sense of the term.
In our vision of the enterprise, each, if done right, can be a tremendous business asset helping to drive a high level of collective performance, providing an attractive workplace for employees and creating value for shareholders.
All ten points should be understood and pursued in harmony with the values laid down in the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Together with quality of life in the workplace, these values underpin all the activities of an enterprise and guide not only its approach to CSR but also its place within society.

Executive management shapes the specific decision-making process (DMP) for the entire enterprise and those involved in it. It provides a vision and infuses energy from within, spurring everyone into action, marshaling internal forces, hearing arguments, and making decisions. It also serves as the point at which each individual’s contribution is recognized and cultivates a positive, compassionate approach.
In today’s world, all enterprises need to have their own full-fledged security culture, and all senior executives are expected to keep their enterprise secure. Security means the physical security of employees in their daily work, psychological security shielding them from pressure and uncertainty, data security (private life) and information system security (protection and BRP).
Crisis and transformation:
Today, it is essential to consider and plan ahead for crises. Knowing and understanding that crises can never be ruled out altogether and that an enterprise does not live forever, can help stakeholders to live with risk, to identify it, plan for it and to guard against it or take steps to maintain the enterprise’s resilience.
Crises are a state of accelerated transformation, which occurs too rapidly for thorough prior preparation to be undertaken. In such circumstances, experience has shown that transition management can be a highly effective solution.
This ongoing risk analysis is essential for the global leadership of the enterprise to unleash its potential to take action.
A high-performing management team is a genuine asset for an enterprise. It can make a real difference in a volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) environment and amid fierce competition. Its credibility flows from its inclusivity and empathy. Management is a reflection of the corporate culture, without representing all of it (internal culture also consists of the sum total of individual behaviors and direct inter-relationships between all the employees).
Management provides both the system and structure, as well as the energy bringing them to life. Each and every day, its role is to listen to and communicate with people. It plays a big part in ensuring a fair process and puts into practice Executive Management’s decision-making process.
An effective financial strategy will ultimately set an organization apart from its rivals and will dictate its ability to pursue the requisite pace of investments.
We review finance with the goal of turning it into a finely tuned tool attuned to the enterprise’s strategic vision as it embraces digital technology and innovation.
Human capital is the sum total of all specific and behavioral technical expertise (knowledge of internal processes and the DMP, experience curve, awareness of the market and products) and training received by all the Group members and giving it specific strengths. It is the wealth of experience gained, provided it is effectively shared and collectively analyzed during organized feedback sessions.
It is also founded on employee dialog, which can make a major contribution to an enterprise’s overall human capital.
Digital marketing has made it even more crucial to have a global brand strategy in place. If all employees become potential ambassadors, if customers are at last placed at the center of all internal processes (customer centricity), the brand strategy can become a tremendous differentiator and a fundamental asset, unleashing powerful gains internally and externally.
You cannot become a communicative enterprise “by decree”. It requires the right mindset across the enterprise, from top to bottom.
Clear internal rules to ensure issues are addressed at the appropriate level can free up communication at each organizational tier or unit.
DAmid the more rapid spread of fake news, taking steps to communicate clearly and rapidly is a major imperative for management in today’s world.
It is essential to speak genuinely and from the heart. A communicative enterprise can lay the foundation for becoming a learning organization.
Information systems form the backbone of any change. Their ability to manage, structure and generate information flows in a usable form by the various internal businesses is crucial for collective success. In the age of Big Data, the quality of queries from business units can help to unlock the true value of today’s larger and larger databases, but to harvest their full insights through fine-grained analysis still takes real smarts. The high productivity of information systems depends on the quality of inter-departmental communication, and thus management.
At Tetraktys, we believe innovation is the most crucial of managerial tools and the most powerful way to get an entire organization to become forward-looking and ready for the future.
It provides the driving force for leadership and management that give everyone a chance to have their say and listen to all voices, get people out of their silos and working together in sub-groups of employees from different departments—all too often they do not even know each other or are unaware of the constraints under which their counterparts have to work.
Building the enterprise (or the products, processes) of the future together is, for everyone involved, probably the most thrilling and engaging task that an organization can ever engage in.
Our role is to introduce structural solutions (M&A, restructuring, etc.) to optimize all participants’ interests in complex environmentsor where there is very significant financial strain (ad hoc mandates with a deadline set by creditors).

What makes us unique
What makes us unique
Our unique approach puts innovation at the heart of your enterprise in a manner attuned to your DNA and your values. All the solutions we provide are bespoke: we never use the same processes or solutions twice because every situation is unique.
- Our approach is primarily based on listening to, gaining an understanding of and analyzing your needs. Then we are rapidly able to formulate work priorities geared to your enterprise and to your timing imperatives.
- The value we add on the critical path towards sustainable and profitable growth balancing human and financial considerations derives from our ability to get all your enterprise’s internal and external stakeholders on the same page and working alongside each other towards targets on the same timetable. The technical solutions we offer can then be rolled out smoothly. Without this prior stakeholder realignment, they may only provide a very short-term solution, or actually cause greater management entropy.
- To entrench this original vision that has proven its effectiveness, we bring to bear our combined expertise in strategic thinking, leadership and high-performance management, active innovation, and finance.
