Management Consulting

“If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.”
 (Henry Ford)

Restructuring or adapting to new conditions often cannot be managed with on-board resources or require an external view. The external support of a competent partner with industry experience can help to overcome the problems and open up new perspectives.

As management consultants with many years of experience, we first look at your company in all its facets. Then, through this objective, independent and competent analysis, we offer you the support you need for your individual decisions on restructuring and the introduction of new solutions.

We are also available to advise you on the calculation of the profitability of projects with sustainable and constructive solutions. We analyze your situation and the general conditions, develop the necessary steps together with you and accompany you during the implementation until success.

With our focus on specific markets, we have the industry expertise you can rely on.

Our services in management consulting:


Corporate strategy


Markets are becoming increasingly unpredictable: radical innovations, commodity price fluctuations, supply crises, technological leaps. The rapid, continuous change makes clear strategies for companies more important than ever. What is needed are flexible strategy processes that not only allow you to recognize change, but also to directly respond to it and a wide range of action areas to keep pace with those changes.
We develop business plans and accompany their realization from market analysis to implementation. We support you with due diligence in M&A processes. We analyze the market environment and help you develop a strategy.



Process analysis

We examine your value streams, determine the optimization potential with you and subsequently implement it together. We also support you in the introduction of Lean manufacturing processes, such as CIP, 5S, TPM and help you to increase your productivity and efficiency.


What does our process consulting include?

Due to changing market conditions, a new competitive situation or other internal and external influencing factors, producing companies may need to improve their own business and production processes. The aim is to reduce production costs, increase productivity and optimize effectiveness and product quality.

In order to secure your company's results in the long term, our experienced consultants provide you with the necessary process consulting services.

In the first step, together with your experts, we obtain an overview of your processes, structures and costs as well as the existing product portfolio in a basic analysis. Subsequently, we work out and evaluate the optimization potentials in on-site workshops and classify the proposed solutions. The goal is to identify and document optimization approaches in your company according to your specifications.
Based on all information and results, we jointly develop possible alternative courses of action and create an implementation plan.

Unlike other consulting companies, however, our process consulting does not end here, because we continue to support you in the implementation of suitable measures.

The goal of our process consulting is the effectiveness of results.

Market analysis

We research and analyze your market potential. We develop proposals for expanding your product portfolio or supplementing your distribution channels.

What does a market analysis involve?

Market analysis is a systematic examination of a market and its conditions. This includes the competitive situation, the target groups and their needs, and the trends and developments that could influence the market in the future.

The aim is to use this as a basis for estimating how customer groups might react to potential products and services or changes to them. As a subarea of market research, both qualitative and quantitative methods are suitable for a market analysis.

The results of the market analysis serve as a basis for defining strategic and operational corporate goals and developing suitable marketing strategies to achieve these goals. This is intended to avoid entrepreneurial failures. Because if the business plan takes into account the findings from the market analysis, they are also incorporated into the development of the brand strategy.

The market analysis covers a total of four dimensions.

Target market

The definition of the target market includes its precise description as well as the differentiation of adjacent markets that are not part of the analysis. This creates the frame of reference for the entire market analysis.

Market size and development

The analysis of market size and development comprises three levels:

  • Time-related market volume: determination of the market volume at a specific, usually current, point in time. From this, sales volume and product units sold can be derived.
  • Period-related market volume: A retrospective analysis of market volume over a defined period. Here, growth rates over a longer period of time become apparent, enabling conclusions to be drawn about the stage of development of the market.
  • Market development forecast: Within the market analysis, statements about expected growth and sales rates are particularly relevant. They can be decisive for whether a new product is introduced or what the focus of the business model is.

Competitive landscape

In order for companies to get an accurate idea of their competitors, competitive analysis is done in three steps.

Potential analysis

The potential analysis of the target market is based on the results of the previous analyses. The key question is how your company should develop in the future. The following questions, which we will answer together with you, play an essential role in the potential analysis.


Digitization of business processes

The term "digitization" has evolved from a neutral, technical process to a collective term with positively occupied collective nouns for modernization in various areas. In the last ten years, digitization has been interpreted less and less in its original meaning and is increasingly seen as a collective term for the use of digital information in business, politics and society.

Today, the digitization of all processes - keyword Industry 4.0 - is an ongoing task in all business areas and a basic requirement for maintaining competitiveness. We work with you to develop your individual digitization strategy and implement it with you.


What is Industry 4.0?

The focus of digitization in manufacturing companies today is in the area of Industry 4.0, which is understood to mean all processes that serve to digitize production. So much for the definition. But what does it mean? Digitization refers to the increasing use of networked, digitized, automated technologies in our society. Industry 4.0 specifically refers to the development in industry.

The buzzwords are: Networking and self-control. Networked systems make it possible to exchange data and thus information and thus to interact intelligently. Self-control stands in contrast to the previous central control of machines: Until now, information was collected in different IT systems and evaluated by humans, who then made adjustments. For example, to increase the production rate or manufacture goods more efficiently.

This process will change fundamentally as a result of Industry 4.0. In the digitized future, all machines and the goods they produce will be equipped with sensors. They will communicate constantly and continuously optimize their processes. Not only among themselves, but with other systems: Production, sales, development, even customers and suppliers will be integrated into the networked world.

Intelligent control a defining feature of Industry 4.0
Networked machines control themselves independently and intelligently. Each machine knows how many components are still in stock. If a stock level runs low, the system automatically sends an order to the supplier, who then sends out supplies. Other machines plan production sequences independently and at lightning speed: If a car buyer decides at the last minute that his car should have a sunroof after all, the factory automatically plans another route through production for this car.

Centralized control thus becomes decentralized self-optimization. It is the next step toward factory automation, the so-called smart factory. Robots and machines are no longer mere automata that repeat a work step millions of times over - by networking all production processes, they decide independently which component takes which path through production. Logistics processes within a company, but also across supply chains, are becoming leaner.

Resource Management

Resource management is the temporal and spatial disposition of workforce, machines, tools and other aids required for project work.

The goal of resource management is, on the one hand, the optimal utilization of resources and, on the other hand, the most equitable possible supply of work capacity to projects. In a matrix organization, resource management is therefore the key conflict point.

We accompany your company in the development of innovative and sustainable supply- and disposal concepts, taking into account the entire value chain.
