In the beginning of February, the team of Dr. Fried & Partner stayed at the Bayernhaus in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for strategy days as a kickoff event for the year. In beautiful winter weather the future orientation and common goals were discussed and the team cohesion was strengthened. In between, of course, there was still time to enjoy the snow-covered alpine panorama.
After reaching the snow-covered Garmisch-Patenkirchen by train, the whole team hiked up the hill to the rustic Bayernhaus to enjoy the beautiful winter weather and to get some exercise. After one and a half hours the peak was reached and the team was rewarded with a delicious Bavarian dinner.
After a joint breakfast, Friday was all about the future direction of the management consultancy. The cozy atmosphere in a separate hut offered the team the opportunity to discuss future projects, approaches and strategies away from everyday office life.
In the lunch break the hard working team took a little walk to another ski hut, where Schnitzel and Spätzle were served outside in the sun. Well-nourished we were prepared to start into the second round of the strategic workshop. After collecting tons of new ideas, and defining common perspectives, we enjoyed the evening with mulled wine and delicious fondue. However, the highlight was definitely the torchlight hike in a starry night with fresh mountain air.
On the third and last day of the strategy meeting, Saturday morning, everyone joined for breakfast in the Bayernhaus. However, as the majority of the team members are enthusiastic skiers, nobody wanted to miss the chance to take the first turns on freshly groomed slopes directly from the hut. So one day of skiing together was the perfect way to end the strategy days.
The start of the year in Garmisch – now a tradition at Dr. Fried und Partner – again developed into a successful event. It was very beneficial for the further orientation of the company as well as for the team relation. We are looking forward to an exciting year 2019 with a great team!
