Advisory services

Act as sparring partner

Because the external perspective is particularly valuable
At GET AHEAD we see ourselves as sparring partners of our clients and advise with a service portfolio that goes beyond executive search. Together we develop and install leadership organizations and systems that enable your strategy to be implemented in the best possible way. In an effort to do this, our expertise and network available are at your disposal in the advisory services area.

Appointment and assessment of supervisory and advisory boards

We support you in selecting and compiling an advisory board/supervisory board consisting of experienced, independent entrepreneurs and top managers who will contribute to the sustainable, successful development of your company. We do this by utilizing the comprehensive GET AHEAD network, with specialization in specific fields and industries. Taking into account the interaction between management/board of directors and supervisory board, we are happy to make suggestions for optimization.

Consulting on the composition of advisory boards

While the supervisory body for stock corporations is prescribed by statute, companies of other legal forms have long since been aware that having a competently staffed advisory board can significantly influence the company's success.
You too can create a group of experts who scrutinize the issues at hand, ask uncomfortable questions when needed, and provide constructive support for decisions. As an owner-managed company, GET AHEAD Executive Search has also benefited from these advantages for years. We look forward to advising you on the filling of supervisory and advisory board positions.

Efficiency review of supervisory and advisory boards

The requirements for good corporate governance are continually increasing. This requires a way of working that effectively controls and advises the board of directors and, by way, avoids risks of liability. GET AHEAD examines how your supervisory board is spending its time in relation to the associated benefits and then identifies optimization potential in improving the effectiveness of its activities. Digitalization can also contribute to further increases in efficiency. Digital competence is therefore also increasingly becoming a "must have" for control functions to consider.

C-level performance measurement

Together with you, we develop plans to ensure that your executives meet current and future performance requirements. At the same time, we illustrate whether they have the potential to take on additional positions in your company in the future.

Analyses of the salary structure in top management

We advise you on the adjustment and redesigning of salary structures and remuneration systems for your top executives. In doing so, we take into account legal requirements as well as, for example, specifications from your corporate governance code. We also prepare benchmarking reports for supervisory and advisory board compensation.

Succession planning

Play a key role in shaping the success of your company by filling your top positions with the right leaders or initiating their succession in a timely manner. We are experts in advising and validating executives and experienced in structuring transitions – be it in a medium-sized listed company or a traditional family-run business. For family businesses, for example, we find external managers to take over permanently or temporarily until the next generation is ready to step in.

Interim Management

Whether in crises, in growth phases or in times of change, GET AHEAD is your partner. We fill critical positions for a limited time with strong leaders. Managers who implement change processes and establish best practices, thus contributing to sustainable business success.

Industry advisory (industry-related developments)

Are you planning to enter new markets? We advise you on building business teams and identify skills gaps in your company. We recruit the right leaders for you and support you with our network within your industry or along your specific value chain.

Market analyses

Demographic change, diversity, globalization, etc. – the megatrends present not only challenges for companies but numerous opportunities as well. As HR consultants with a 25-year history, we have seen a lot and have proven best practices. We also provide you with detailed market studies, taking into account the players in your and other relevant markets, as well as highlighting opportunities and risks.
