For more than 25 years, our resolute support during challenging times has been affirmed by many leading industrial companies with whom we have worked closely.
Organisations can find themselves in trouble for many different reasons. In times of crisis, we help you to identify the root causes of a problem and develop the right strategy to bring about a suc-cessful change of course. However, a transformation can only succeed with the support of em-ployees. We make changes in a collaborative and inclusive manner.
A minor course correction or a major turnaround: Every decision is made in line with our ideal of business excellence. We rely on the people behind the numbers, we examine and question the systems behind the processes. This enables us to implement strategies and provide recipes for success that are effective and sustainable. Our principle, which has stood the test of time for over 25 years Excellence in all areas.
In times of widespread and disruptive change, a company’s sustained success increasingly re-quires ongoing redesign of its Business Model. Technological progress and digitalisation have be-come significant competitive factors in the market. Together we test your strategy, organization and business processes using our Strategy Check methodology, an in-depth analysis. Based on the outcome, we address any weaknesses and evolve your Business Model to include relevant ele-ments of digital transformation – and by doing so, we build the foundation for your future success.
Based on our analysis of your operations and our understanding of your Business Model, we work together to develop your Target Operating Model (TOM)- your target state and changes to opera-tions required to deliver on your strategy. Once the TOM has been developed, we work with you to implement the necessary changes. Change for us goes well beyond the physical changes to pro-cesses and systems. For us, real change includes changes to behaviour and working practices. We ensure staff internalize the transformation, which means they live the changes and incorporate them into their everyday lives. Operational Transformation can be successful if it is approached with a clear view of the objectives and a broad range of competencies, regardless of whether it involves technology or cost cutting. It is not the effects of a crisis that must be dealt with, but the causes.
Of course, it takes time for changes to take effect. But time is money – and when it comes to eco-nomic survival, it is a particularly valuable commodity. In cooperation with you and your financial partners, we will find a way to close financial gaps. The restructuring plan reflects the impact of all strategic and operational measures. This serves as a rational basis for financing decisions by all stakeholders.
Of course, we also take responsibility for organising and managing the restructuring process, so as not to waste any time. Your company’s right to act must be guaranteed at all times during the transaction. This is guaranteed not least by our 25 years of experience as a partner of large, successful industrial companies.
