In a nutshell:
We are adventurers! We are in love with stories and games. We live by principles from an agile reality and radical candor. Our fellowship is made up of characters from all strokes of life and we are writing a new (hi)story in the business world. Get to know us – but be ready for a new perspective!
This is our adventure:
fable+ is a consultancy boutique first founded in 2014. With roots in mediation and facilitation, our focus has evolved and shifted towards digital change management, from agile transformation, DevOps architecture, cultural change, and to product development.
When our journey started a few years ago as antwort360, we sought answers to ‘what if’ and ‘why not’, the broad, general questions at the root of almost any change. We chose a name that was a logical consequence of these questions: antwort, German for answer, and 360, a perfect circle.
As our own tale developed and we learned and evolved, our approach became more and more influenced by playfulness and storytelling, our name needed to reflect this reality, these beliefs better.
fable+ is made up of two parts: First, the ‘fable’, a nod to our reality as storytellers at heart. Our philosophy is based on teachings of some of the most iconic fairytales: Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan and Mary Poppins. Our culture is steeped in the magic of Harry Potter, from the sorting hat to the iconic houses. Secondly, the ‘+’, because we are more than charming tales: We shape very real success stories in both the startup and corporate worlds. We lead through the journey of digital change. We embark on adventures of product ideation and development.
These are our three fairytales:
You have heard them all, no doubt. There’s Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, and the fabulous Mary Poppins. Each of these fairytales has lessons to be learned and shapes our every-day-approach to working with colleagues and customers.
We learned from Fairy Number Twelve in Sleeping Beauty that each situation, each new task warrants a fresh approach. There is no such thing as one size fits all. A happy end is always based on a response tailored to your needs.
Peter Pan inspires us to push boundaries and take risks in a safe environment of play and storytelling. The results from a session of serious play are often stunning. It does not do to dwell on past failures, so just like Peter we encourage getting up after a fall, dusting yourself off, and trying again. Fail fast and often, as the competitive advice goes.
The tale of Mary Poppins teaches us the importance of independence. We work with you to achieve a lasting and sustainable change, even after an assignment finishes. Our goal is enabling you to carry on without us and push forward. Should we be needed again, we are more than happy to fly in with our magic bag of tools.
