Abstract or Introduction

This short essay is based on an Harvard Business School article published 2004 “Strategic Review at Egon Zehnder International (A)” by Morell & Nanda. Egon Zehnder’s strategy resonates mainly between two poles: “Clients first” and the “One firm partnership concept”. Like the earthly poles, there lies a field in-between and both poles might over the years also shift (if not switch one day). The internal focus clearly impacts the way Egon Zehnder is perceived (from different stakeholders in different ways of course) and the people who now became partner (through a strict selection process) talk to the clients in a way that clients feel “really being first”. Looking at the current partners of Egon Zehnder they all have a solid background and worked for top notch fortune 500 companies, so it seems to be fair to assume that they speak the language of the clients and might often know their customers from previous jobs or business schools they attended.
