Just go ahead: More than three decades of training and consulting experience

In 1984, Gunther Wolf and his two partners set up a company in the Netherlands. Its main focus was on management development, outdoor training, sales seminars, customer and marketing incentives, water sports and parachuting.

In 1984 we still called ourselves “Indoor Outdoor Management Development”, but the name appears to have been a bit too long for our customers’ liking: they simply called us “the people from I.O.”

“The people from I.O.”

The name stuck. We’re glad it did, for what could be better than having a name given to us by our own customers?

When we moved into Villa Engels and brought all management consulting and training activities together under one roof, the term “I.O. Group” was used for the first time. Today all business units belong to the I.O. Group Wolf.

Whether management consulting, strategy consulting, target consulting, performance consulting: We support management levels and supervisory bodies of companies and non-profit organizations in updating strategies, strategic systems and the associated instruments. We put all our experience and innovative strength to work for you.

Use three decades of experience for your upcoming challenges. We are aware of the high demands that are placed on us when advising management boards, managing directors, owners, shareholders, advisory boards and supervisory boards.


For this reason we always achieve the agreed results in five clearly defined steps. Expect a meaningful analysis at the beginning of the project. Based on this analysis, target-performance comparisons and statements about the conditions to be created serve as starting points for your neutral and unbiased consulting.

In this course we inform you about the results of the analysis. You will also receive practical, often innovative suggestions for solutions and sensible procedures. During the implementation you benefit from our many years of experience.

We understand value creation as the realization of the highest possible and at the same time sustainable success for the client. We consistently focus all activities on the implementation of the client’s strategic goals.
