Our main fields of expertise: strategic consulting and management, organizational development, operational development, process development, cost-effectiveness, business planning and assessment, program and grant advisory, project management, and consultancy specialized in tourism.
STRATEGY AND ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The successful and feasible operation of an organisation needs an appropriate strategy and a matching business model. Strategy in fact means a system of strategic goals, which include company or group level strategy, business strategies, their supporting functional strategies, and it provides the connection and interaction between them. We believe that strategy is not a one-time action; not the documentation of a strategy plan set in stone. What makes it the proper means of management are appropriate monitoring, feedback and the planning of the process of necessary change. The consultants at Xellum have a customised approach in case of each client, with regard to the client’s needs and particularities, applying the matching methods in each case.
Therefore, our consultants also support their clients in the realization phase with organisational and process development projects, strategy-based business plans, the creation and execution of a target-system that provides measurability, the creation of a system of norms derived from the processes, the development of job responsibilities and interests, and the elaboration of a matching set of regulations.

BUSINESS PLANNING, FINANCIAL ADVISORY, ASSESSMENT, DUE DILIGENCE
Our financial modelling and business planning services support the owners and decision makers of companies with the assessment, modelling, and continuous review of the effects and risks of the various economic decisions (project financing, corporate financing, privatization, corporate strategy, capital expenditure and investment, spin-offs and acquisitions etc.). Our business planning and financial modelling services are most often:
preparation and review of business plans and financial models
developing and introducing standards of business planning and financial modelling
In our financial advisory services we also deal with the assessment, improvement and efficiency development of supporting functions and financial-accounting divisions.
Primarily for investors, we regularly prepare financial due diligence to assess the risks of a chosen target.
For developmental projects, we regularly prepare feasibility studies, taking the financial, technical, legal and also the implementation aspects into consideration.

Our services provide solutions at structural and planning levels for tasks such as destination management, impact assessment, transport, regional and destination planning and marketing or experience planning. Our expertise also supports project at product level, too, such as cultural and heritage, sustainable and ecotourism or for spas.

EFFICIENCY AND PROCESS DEVELOPMENT, COST-REDUCTION
Business enterprises and other organisations that operate in business environment are constantly in urge to change, to adapt and to develop. This pressure may come from various sources: it may be the market competition itself, the challenges of financing, the decrease of profitability, the possible quality problems, or the expectations of the owner or regulatory authorities. The urge for change typically results from the complex presence of multiple pressure sources, so only a similarly complex approach can be a suitable reaction.
Accordingly, the efficiency development projects at Xellum usually include more – if not all – divisions of the organisation, the inner processes of operation from the identification of change possibilities, through the process-oriented analysis of costs, to the exploration of organizational reserves. Since all clients have a unique operation, in each case we apply an individual approach, which is developed based on a quick scan right after the project’s start.
