Rough execution, unreliable duration and outcomes of your projects, leading to cost, price, quality and time pressure?
Tired of hearing about "innovation management", considering growing through services, but unsure what to do next to make growth happen?
Caught spinning your wheels and burning cash in endless change and improvement initiatives with unclear outcome?
I'm Isaak Tsalicoglou, Dipl. Mech. Engineer ETH Zurich and IMD MBA.
Over 10+ years, organizations – including world-class companies such as ABB and Hilti – have benefited from my drive for making things better, and firmly established lasting improvements of their development.
While leading and contributing to numerous projects, I have had the good fortune of working with hundreds of great people – around the world, and across functions and hierarchical levels.
A pragmatic, people-oriented approach has enabled me and diverse teams to repeatedly set and transfer new standards in development – for technologies, products, service business models and improvement initiatives.
Through noito GmbH I now assist clients to blaze and tread new trails in their development – and thus achieve great results reliably, repeatedly and always with the business in mind.
“Isaak acts as an inspiration for people to push the boundaries of their creativity and ambition levels. He is one of the most intelligent and friendly people I have met.”
“Mr. Tsalicoglou manifested a marked sensitivity to business and cross-functional aspects. With his good negotiating skills, he was capable of developing appropriate solutions that were acceptable to all parties, no matter how tense the situation. He was very skillful at passing on his knowledge and know-how.”
“Few people I have met are as bright, quick, and efficient as Isaak. Isaak is a true asset […] innovative, resourceful and with the power and charisma to get things done respectfully.”
“I was fortunate to have Isaak guide me […]. His constant support […] led me to explore new ideas that eventually materialized into a successful project! Professionally, he has been a great source of motivation for me and I have learned a great deal in his presence.”
“Isaak offers a rare combination of thoughtful intelligence, a rigorous scientific approach, and fearless creativity. […] he never stopts questioning, challenging, and adapting. There aren't too many people I could recommend as highly.”
“What impressed me the most about Isaak was the way he and the team "bounced back" after a challenging first review. It told me a lot about his resilience and determination, not to mention his smarts in creatively solving a difficult problem.”
“I appreciated Isaak's goal-oriented working style when moving from strategy to operation, aligning technology development to business and product development […]. It was a great pleasure to work with Isaak!”
“Isaak is not afraid of openly questioning the status quo, suggesting (sometimes radically) new approaches, but then also willing to take the responsibility to sell, pilot and introduce them. Besides his friendliness, honesty and openness, this is why I appreciated so much our collaboration.”
“Due to his excellent, quick grasp of concepts, Mr. Tsalicoglou recognized problems immediately and acted in a solution-oriented manner. He was very accommodating to changes. […] With his highly helpful and reliable nature, he integrated well into teams.”
“Isaak has been successful in implementing the changes thanks to his ability to craft and sharpen the "why". Isaak is a very driven individual who can build effective alliances to get the job done. His passion and his "can do" attitude are his trademarks.”
“I have experienced Isaak as being a very skilled, committed and keen to deliver engineer. He has an exceptional drive and highest ambitions.”
