J+K has collaborated with the German communication scientist Peter Szyszka, a professor of organisation communication, public relations and communication management at the University of Hanover, for many years. He is the author of the monograph Beziehungskapital: Akzeptanz und Wertschöpfung (Relational capital: Acceptance and value creation), which established the theoretical foundation of J+K’s consultancy approach.

J+K and Szyszka worked closely together in developing their own controlling method for determining and assessing relational capital, which strategically controls reporting, the need for action and the use of resources in communication management.
