The public sector increasingly faces the challenge to meet growing expectations with limited means. While in times of economic uncertainty the scarcity of resources becomes obvious, target groups of public services demand more and more. The need for new management in the public sector thus becomes evident. Effective and target-oriented management of tax revenue is turning into a key item of public interest.


Contrast Management-Consulting advises governments, authorities, public agencies, spin-offs and public-sector enterprises. We are equally active on a federal, provincial and regional level as we are on an international level (e.g. for United Nations agencies).


As one of only few consulting houses in the German-speaking area, we have a separate team of experts for public management. Our employees have many years of experience in advising public institutions and, besides their comprehensive methodological know-how, understand the differentiated culture of the public sector.  


We see ourselves as your partner for designing and implementing sustainable reform projects. It is our aspiration to assist public-sector managers in safeguarding the achievement of the desired effects. One major contribution, from our point of view, is to design services in line with the actual objectives and the corresponding resource management.


The concept of new public management involves an ongoing commitment to target-oriented action. Contrast Management-Consulting, as a long-time promoter and proponent of this idea, is your ideal companion on the way towards a future-oriented and modern public management.
