MY JOURNEY CHASING SACRED COWS
Notes from around the world
HOW I MADE 8 FIGURES
I invented a method to automatically measure the service quality of my client. This way we could experiment with improvements of service processes and receive immediate feedback based on big data evidence. We had to kill several sacred cows of how service was „supposed to be done“. The consequence of this was an 8 figure annual increase of the client’s profit.
LEARNING MY TRADE
I learned my trade as a consultant by starting my career at Accenture, working at big complex projects with more than 300 project members in the field of digital transformation. Transformation projects are often about sacred cows.
My academic background is my study of business psychology with focus on organizational development at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany. I earned the degree of a Diplom-Psychologe.
STUDYING SACRED COWS
In 2019, I received my doctorate degree at the University of Gloucestershire, England, for my research about radical organizational change by killing sacred cows. I interviewed experts in radical change and squeezed their 176 insights into a neat little framework called the Sacred Cow Framework. It is the condensed knowledge of many years of experience from these experts. The Sacred Cow Framework tells you which leadership challenges to consider if you want to conduct a successful organizational change.
TICKETS VIA INTERNET
If you ever bought a train ticket via the Internet, I am one of the many people who made that possible. During this project I learned that the biggest obstacle is not the technology, but the managers who claim: „We don’t need this Internet thing!“
One of my clients was a family business that sold the same standard products with the same standard margins over the same standard sales channels for many years. I designed for them a new department for premium products that sells exquisite products with high margins to very affluent customers. The client is now an international market leader, benefitting from their competitors‘ sacred cows.
