What started out as a joke about the number of penguins in cold, cold Sweden, where two of the founding partners were born, turned into something bigger.

Moreover, Penguins huddle to protect themselves from the very cold climate in Antarctica, a group of Penguins keep each other warm. We will always make sure that we, and our clients, are working together in our client´s best interest, there is no us and them, only we.
Last, but not least, Penguins might travel far but they always return to their nesting ground. We at Penguin Consultants know where we come from. Just as live Penguins we will do what it takes to “hatch the egg”. This is always our mission, to improve our clients at what they do, being more effective and thereby more successful.

This all requires them to be part of the change and a clear understanding of the change motives.

What can be improved?

No matter company size, market, maturity or level of excellence, we will always consider three different aspects when supporting our clients in their digital transformation journey:
