2021-12-22 Tome Consulting – the year in brief
True to tradition, here at the end of the year we look back at the time that has passed.
In 2021, especially one client assignment has been in focus – namely first the completion of the strategy work for a Nordic insurance group, then the management of their change program and now the workstream management in connection with the upcoming merger next year. As we also witnessed last year, most of the work was delivered at a distance.
In addition, there has been room for several smaller assignments such as a software selection process as well as training of customer-facing behaviour at a major client together with a partner.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2022 and look forward to continuing the collaboration… Thank you all for your efforts in 2021.

2020-12-23 Tome Consulting – the year in brief
2020 has been a different year in many ways. And that applies to the whole world.
In mid-March, the Danish society almost came to a complete standstill. Together with the clients, however, we had reformulated their critical contingency plans so that operations could continue. For us, this meant an increased focus on digital platforms – with a.o. a new website and facilitation of strategy and client workshops via virtual channels.
In fact, we have completed more than 20 virtual workshops with clients nationally and abroad based on the same mode of operation as when facilitating them physically. However, a new bag of tricks and changed preparation routines were called for – and we are hardly the only ones who must spend more energy on reading the participants’ engagement, energy level and mood than usual… In sum, together we achieved our goals. Thank you all for your efforts.
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy 2021 and look forward to continuing the cooperation… especially in addition to using Teams and Miro.

2018-12-22 Tome Consulting – the year in brief
2018 became the year in which the management support concept transformed into a longer interim management assignment as well as management support at both a number of well-known and new clients alike… And the year in which a team of experts helped develop an app prototype together with a client – a client who is now looking into a real market test and later development and launch of an app.
Other tasks have involved strategy and management communication, advice on commercial start-up at a few smaller companies, innovation and idea pipeline management for a larger company, as well as development and implementation of a new operating model for a business unit in a larger Danish energy company – an assignment that also offers daily interim management with a fantastic team.

2018-03-30 First quarter summary
The first quarter has offered several different assignments in form of e.g. executive management support for two existing clients and the formulation of a market strategy for a new client looking for further commercialization and market presence. Additionally, a Tome Consulting development team has commenced building an app prototype to an existing client. Common to all the assignments is the capacity for natural extensions – for example, the experiences from the management support sessions are now collected in a concept that will be marketed, the market strategy is currently in the process of being implemented in collaboration with the client’s senior management and specialists from Tome Consulting. Upon successful development, the app is to be presented to the client’s board of management and other primary stakeholders. Lots of exciting threads for the second quarter.
2017-12-20 Tome Consulting – the year in brief
Having completed the final assignment of the year and now looking forward to spending quality time with the family, I wish to extend my thanks to clients, partners and friends of Tome Consulting alike for a profitable 2017.
The tasks solved during the year have been quite diverse, however, all of them have involved close cooperation with clients’ senior management and key individuals. Deliveries have included the formulation and implementation of strategies and go-to-market plans, customer touchpoint evaluation, competitor analysis, programme communication as well as providing management support. Several assignments have had management support as an important component; for experienced and less experienced executives alike. Focus has been on creating bandwidth to get the strategy in place and make room for important decision and changes. One client describes that process as “a gift from the executive board”, another as “a lifeline in an overly busy time”. In sum, we have worked closely together to get in touch with key stakeholder needs, set the direction and cleared the critical deliveries that can be hard to reach in an otherwise busy schedule. If you are interested in more information, please check out the list of selected clients and cases.
We wish a merry Christmas and a happy 2018 to all of you that decided to tag along. We are looking forward to continuing the journey…
All the best,

2017-03-31 Consulting assignment evaluating customer touchpoints completed
Tome Consulting has today completed a market analysis for a client in the service sector. The goal was to determine the perceived value creation at selected customer touchpoints as well as ascertain whether the right product and service mix is being offered. Through qualitative personal interviews and telephone interviews the customer experience for a greater number of respondents was uncovered focusing on the customers’ perception of the product concepts and where appropriate, adjustments should be introduced.
Both the method and questionnaire were co-created with the client and the final report contained an idea catalogue with recommendations for improvements to be implemented by the client. One major point of improvement with also this client was a needed emphasis on the internal and external customer communication in order to strengthen the customer journey.
2016-12-21 Tome Consulting – the year in brief
On one of the final days of the year I want to extend my thanks to clients, partners and friends of Tome Consulting alike for assisting us reaching our targets for yet another year. One of the milestones for 2016 has been the final implementation of contactless payments with the Swipp-app in stores and taxies with selected Verifone payment terminals (read more below). A product vision and technical solution that will carry over in the owners’ partnership with MobilePay. Good luck to everyone in the Swipp team.
Additionally, Tome Consulting has assisted a number of minor clients, where the role as start-up coach has been in demand. Great to see so many of them catch momentum. Moreover, new partnerships have been formed and we expect mutual inspiration to follow from these in the coming year.
We wish a merry Christmas and a happy 2017 to all of you that decided to tag along. We are looking forward to continuing the journey…
All the best,
Tome Consulting Ltd.
