drkv Company Profile 2019 (


Published on

drkv was founded in 2015 by Dr Michael Kirchhof. With 20 years of experience in international consulting and business, Michael decided to create drkv with the vision to advise both corporates and entrepreneurs on specific issues from cutover, data management to business strategy while developing own products and researching in the fields of eHealth, productivity and organisational behaviour. This unique combination gives us credibility when working important projects with our clients - we “walk the talk”. We are team players who take responsibility for projects and decision-making. The company has offices in London and Düsseldorf.

drkv Company Profile 2019 (

  1. 1. 1 Company Profile R e a d i n e s s A d v i s o r y I n c u b a t o r T h i n k Ta n k L o n d o n | D ü s s e l d o r f F e b r u a r y 2 0 1 9 c o n t a c t @ d r k v. c o m d r k v. c o m
  2. 2. 2The drkv approach: Striving for excellence Our mission is to enhance individual and organisational health and performance. We work on product ideas in eHealth, personal data management as well as personal and organisational excellence – and offer our expertise as a service to business clients. With our heritage in innovation, transformation, and entrepreneurship, we work side- by-side with our clients to support their growth and successful delivery.
  3. 3. 3Our Value Proposition We combine diligent research, building products, and working with others. Readiness advisory > gentle persistence towards clear objectives < “Getting ready” and actually launching a project is easier said than done – incomplete incomplete deliverables and unprepared stakeholders can be the tipping point for any any project. If objectives got out of sight, persisting on the clarification of blocking issues and open communication are vital. Incubator > realising innovative services with smart technology < In our incubator, we “walk the talk”: We build, launch, and optimise products and services ourselves. That means that our approach is matured in real-life. We can quickly turn your concepts into tangible results – within days or weeks, not months or years. This provides first-hand insights for our Advisory. Think tank > diligent research for true subject matter expertise < We gather inputs, trends, and insights from academic sources and popular science in the field of eHealth, personal data management, FinTech, and InsurTech. We are actively contributing and commenting in these fields and ensure that we are building our work on solid subject matter expertise.
  4. 4. 4Readiness Advisory: Services For Entrepreneurs For Corporates Cutover Readiness Projects of all types tend to fall into a “stall” in the wake of an upcoming release/launch date. With our Readiness Framework, you can stay on top of the five key areas of your project regarding going live successfully – and take action. Data Readiness Data is at the heart of every business process, application, and service. While this seems to be widely accepted when working with data to develop new use cases, applications, and monetisation strategies, often an inconvenient realisation settles in: data is available but inconsistent and incomplete. Data and Migration Reconciliation Once data is migrated into a new system, this data needs to be tested and verified to be “fit for purpose”. We do this by a comprehensive reconciliation approach with clear responsibilities and quality assurance – to ensure that all but not more data is available in the new system correctly. "...and across the line!" Let’s face it: Not all projects are just smoothly sailing along the project plan; some are even doomed to fail. What to do then, extend the project and add more resources to the roster? (Or even worse: Create pressure to launch?) We have the people skills, technology insights and project mindset to help you and the team “across the line” – not shying away from uncomfortable discussions and decisions. 8 proven steps Entrepreneurship is not rocket science – master your business journey with 8 well tested steps. 8 weeks programme Time is money, so we created a straight- forward, action-oriented programme for ambitious entrepreneurs and managers of small and medium-sized businesses. Been there, done that We can relate to your situation, as we have been starting and growing businesses ourselves for many years.
