About Us

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 BeautyPeter 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.

Let’s start the next chapter together!

With our expert development team and agile working standards, we will deliver your visionary product. We can assist you in form of Design Thinking, Design Sprints, LEGO® SeriousPlay® or Co-Creation to stimulate more input. And then let´s go into development – our DevOps Team will tailor your product and build it market ready. Additionally, we can show you how to apply agile frameworks in product development. This will lead magically to the best results. Let the magic begin!

Cultural Change

For everything there is a season. Let us adjust the air a bit so cultural change can take root in your company. We will let the right mindset grow in your teams!

Growth is twofold: It can hurt because apparently everything is changing. It can also plant the seed of new opportunities. We will help you to harvest these opportunities by nurturing change. We know change often comes with resistance. Don´t worry about it. We can show you how to deal with it. We examine the situation and apply the right methods for a healthy cultural change process. Having the right mindset is possible for all of us. Everyone can grow, there are no restrictions.

#fun

Everyone is having a bad day from time to time but feeding your inner child helps you to find the balance and to stay positive in difficult situations. If you do what you love other people enjoy working with you and get influenced by your mood.  

#continuousImprovement

We are continuously working on improving ourselves. To ensure this we are acting in terms of “Radical Candor”. Accordingly we care personally and challenge directly. Giving honest radical feedback to each other is an essential part of our culture. Being mindful about your ownership helps the team to grow closer together.

#openness

We ask our team members to bring their whole selves to work. Because the variety of personal characters is what makes us unique.  

#beMagical

We are using all the tools we need to become the best magician. Be it the spellbook, the magic wand or the crystal ball. They all help us to take care of our customers and nurture them. Being the best magician helps us to be the best servant-leader.

#beDifferent

fable+ aims to change the game of consulting and of course, you cannot change by being like all the others. Having the courage to be different is essential to meet our goal. We are always trying to go unusual ways by evaluating all possible options and finding playful approaches.

#purposeDriven

If you know why you are doing something it gives you freedom to go other ways and to find the right tool for your purpose. Establishing a vision within a team increases the commitment of all team members to be a part of the bigger picture. But in the end we should all care more about people than about processes.
