OAR Regional Consulting GmbH (ÖAR-Regionalberatung GmbH)
Shaping social innovation
Social innovation emerges in “multi-rational” spaces in-between, where many different, public, private and civil stakeholders interact on all scales. It is precisely the vehemence in which similarities are extolled and contradictions are stressed, which shows us to what extent everyone is linked to everyone else and with everything around.
A “hinge” for different interests and system solutions
They see their role as “hinges” to make these manifold bonds vibrant and fruitful. In their work with organisations and cooperation systems, we mind the delicate balance between hierarchy and partnership by keeping a holistic view on territorial and sectoral issues, knowing that system solutions become increasingly important for their customers, who want, by virtue of pursuing their own interests, to contribute to common well-being.
Focus on impact
Knowing about the limits of their planet’s carrying capacity, they understand the importance of social and society change. Impact-orientated action means to keep acting in ways that are mindful and targeted, building on the power of both self-organisation and reason, monitoring and therefore being able to adapt their actions.
The kind of solutions they seek depends on their own ambitions regarding the quality of their services, the inner compass of values guiding all of their actions.
Contribution to sustainability
They want to make a real contribution to the changes outlined in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, called Agenda 2030. Change starts with people interacting in a certain place at a certain time.
Innovative methods and processes
Together with their customers and partners, they create laboratory formats to test new methods and processes all the way down to their wide application and use in the real world. Breaking new ground together with their customers we keep looking for the ones who are ready to do so – as one thing is clear: new solutions require new avenues.
This is what they promise to their customers and partners. With all their business and process expertise, passion and mindfulness.See more
