What do you think are the foundations for sustainable change? My answer: appreciation (for systems), empathy (and self-knowledge), trust (in people) and patience (on the way to the new).
in your business and make IT
the tool to help it happen
Let’s maximize on best practice, strategy and innovation.
strategy, innovation, and digitalization: from concept to implementation
My work focuses on the areas of optimization, digitization, and transformation of business models and accompanying these processes; as well as the effective and economical design of supporting IT strategy, governance, service management, and sourcing. In addition I value the humans at work and as an individual in a rapidly moving world.
IT Strategy: development and implementation
Digitization is an undeniable fact in today’s business environment, yet not always appreciated across all company levels. It is necessary to cross the chasm, properly communicating its strategic value both to your colleagues in the management team as well as employees.
Cyber security and IT security management
The overall digitization opens up the great economic and social potential in all areas of life that change the world irrevocably. At the same time, those modern cyber advancements are sources of various risks that must be identified and mitigated. I can help you to define and validate minimum standards and make the risks visible.
Consulting and project management
I analyse processes in your company and develop suitable measures to improve them. In addition to business analysis, requirements analyses and documentation can also be created. My expert know-how is at your disposal in the sectors of finance, health and insurance. Management and monitoring of projects according to recognised project methods (Hermes, Prince 2). I use agile methods like Scrum or Kanban where they offer added value.
It’s all about experience and attitude.
My passion and many years of experience in digitization, organizational development and personnel management allow me to support you in the board of directors and make my contribution to innovative and sustainable solutions.
Transforming and developing IT departments into value-generating business units. Successful implementation of change projects. Employee development as a central building block for overall success.

“Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.” –Bill Bradley
Amazing things happen when done together, but every Team is a group of individuals.
People are the most important ressource within any company and they are the only key for future growth and prosperity.
I can help you let your team shine and reach for the gold. Being an experienced sparring partner and mentor, I will help to improve your Team’s performance as well as you to reflect and progress.
Digitalization: Hardly any other buzzword has been used so much in recent years. Of course, it must be something around computers and ever-increasing computer power. However, it cannot be that alone, as computers have been around for decades now. As a consequence, nowadays we must support legacy systems, that are still functional but outdated while keeping up with the technological progress and running the newest estate at the same time.
Being a well-seasoned computer adept, I have enough in my “toolbox” to help you with most of the challenges you might encounter be it with the very old or the brand new technology.
Knowledge is resultant of experience and wisdom. Bringing my expertise to the table allows you to access a broad range of methodologies and various implementation methods that I thoroughly exercised and reflected upon, building a portfolio of best practice.
As one learns the whole of his life, I am still being strongly driven by curiosity and desire for advancement, and I am ready to work and evaluate unfamiliar or novel concepts with you.
Let’s join forces! Let’s spar!

I got to know Martin Wettstein during my interim management at Centris AG. With his precise analyses, his profound expertise and his entrepreneurial foresight, he always aims at the continuous improvement of effectiveness, efficiency and service quality. He is a committed, open and fair dialogue partner - in my case as a representative of the main customer - who with his high expectations promotes, develops and specifically advances every organisation.
Urs Böhlen, Senior Partner ProAct
I know Martin Wettstein as a very well informed, tactically and strategically skilled manager. The methods used are disruptive here and there. Martin puts it in a nutshell - the matter is discussed hard until the best solution is found, the people involved are treated with at least the same respect as Martin. Martin doesn't lose sight of the goal, the vision gives the direction clearly - at the same time Martin is not too bad for himself to give himself a hand (in the depths of technology). It is an enriching experience to work together with him. Anytime again.
Marc Fritschi, Change Strategist and Architect for process digitization
"Martin is a great leader who inspires his collegues and subordinates with his ideas and broad knowledge of information technology and business economics. He is extremly dedicated in what he does and exceeds expectations."
Reto Baumann, Swisscard AECS
Martin is a true innovator, a strategist on top of his game and an inspiring leader.
Sibylle Zemp, IBM
I worked with Martin Wettstein in a large, complex European IT integration and transformation project. He demonstrated strong leadership and technical expertise and contributed significantly to the success of the programme.
