The answer to this question shows that internationalization, going green, new markets and business models, and a changing working world are demanding an increasing persistence, power, and coordination from all market participants. The consensus (especially in the midmarket) is that in the future, the race will go to whoever has the ability to act flexibly, efficiently, and ultimately profitably. Our “corporate fitness” approach offers clear advantages here.
What we offer
Our “corporate fitness” approach specializes in making companies leaner, more flexible, more efficient, and ultimately more profitable. It will give you a competitive edge in your core business and will also make you successful in the long run. In corporate fitness projects we help management work out and smoothly implement whatever measures are necessary. Concretely this means that we specify how processes and structures can be optimized with regard to lead times, costs, and quality.
Our clients have confirmed it again and again:
Our work and our passion for corporate fitness provides significant added value. To be specific, our clients generally realize profits that are many times what they paid us within the space of two or three years.
How we work
Our approach enables our clients to attain leading positions in the market with their core business operations. Each corporate fitness project follows a clear and comprehensible process to that end.
The first task is to formulate ambitious but realistic goals. How can performance be improved while operating at full capacity? We also firmly fix the method, budget, and timeline for the project.
To the point
We then begin our analysis and evaluation of the actual situation according to the 80:20 principle, in order to identify the main areas and levers with potential for optimizing the company. Some of the areas examined here are: organizational complexity, interfaces, assignment of tasks, areas of competence and responsibilities, capabilities and error rates. We take an onsite look at processes, structures, and incentive and management schemes and question everything that stands out: duplicate tasks, losses, procedural errors, structural redundancies, etc. It’s also important to us from the very beginning to work closely with your experts as a team. That’s how we’re able not only to identify room for potential improvements but also to keep everyone happy, management and employees alike.
As soon as we’ve identified and prioritized the best ways to improve your company, we start preparing the masterplan for their implementation. The plan includes a statement of goals, all quantitative target figures, and detailed instructions for implementation in the right chronological order. Here once again we will make intensive use of employees from relevant parts of your organization. This enables us on the one hand to transfer our knowledge to your employees and on the other to ensure that everyone’s motivated to participate in the changes and stays engaged. And we’ll do all of this with efficiency, commitment, and purpose.
At the end of the day, you’ll see concrete changes, measurable improvements in lead times, costs, and quality, and employees who are qualified in both method and content.
