How can processes and structures be additionally optimized and earnings boosted in a functioning company? How can the costs arising from technical progress and the digital transformation be reduced to ensure that the company remains competitive in the long term. These are important questions precisely in times or radical change and growing complexity.
Identify and utilize the potential for optimizing your structures and processes as a means of improving your bottom line. Let us show you practical ways of optimizing processes and costs and improving management and organizational structures.
Are you aware of your costs and income?
A detailed analysis requires an awareness of the cost of processes and products that can be allocated to the corresponding income. Despite cost accounting evaluations, gaps frequently occur due to overhead costs which must be addressed by means of supplementary analyses. By performing profitability analyses, we can determine what generates and what devours your cash. We identify your cost drivers and pinpoint potential for improving your cost structure. Streamlining your range and optimizing your costs can help you to boost your income.
Efficiency is more than just about optimizing costs.
What is clear, however, is that in the future a structure aimed at optimizing costs will no longer be sufficient. The change processes at all levels, particularly in connection with digitization, call for a completely new alignment of structures and systems. Viable organizations must increasingly be characterized by high flexibility and the ability to adjust. At the same time, rising management requirements and data volumes are increasingly making IT management a determinant of success.
With our detailed expertise and strong personal commitment, we can help you come to terms with this process.
How profitable are my products really?
The profitability of products and services is at the core of the overall management process. On what product ranges do I concentrate? Where are my lower price limits? Where must I implement price cuts? It is not possible to answer these questions simply on the basis of existing accounting and controlling data especially if your company has a broad range of products and complex corporate structures. One particular cause of problems is the inability to allocate overheads appropriately and to take due account of complexity costs especially in the case of low-quantity products. What is more, the mark-ups are frequently not precise enough and not aligned to current cost structures.
Decision-oriented profitability analyses create the necessary transparency, allowing the company to move in the right direction.
Process optimization not only means lowering costs
Efficient processes and competitive cost structures are crucial for sustained business success. However, the focus is not on lowering costs. Rather, it is a question of “becoming better” at the processes that are of strategic importance for the company. Material determinants such as speed, flexibility, innovative solutions and quality must be anchored in the business processes and designed and implemented as effectively as possible in the light of resource requirements and benefits.
We take action wherever appropriate.
With our long-standing experience, we focus on where we see the greatest need for attention and the greatest effects. In this way, it is possible to confine complex detailed analyses to the areas of relevance. The identification of cost drivers and the transparency of process costs provide an important base for determining the areas requiring optimization. However, we do not only seek to optimize existing processes. Against the backdrop of the digital transformation, it is necessary to challenge the validity of value chains and to rethink them. This also means that the various areas must be integrated even more tightly in the project and work more closely together.

More than ever before, HR service managers from medium-sized and large companies are under pressure to prove the performance and competitiveness of their organization and to set the right course for the digital future.The benchmarking community "HR Services" was launched in 2018 by a group of major German companies. The aim of the participants is to be able to validate their own performance against all internal stakeholders and to set the right course for the further development of their own organisation more quickly.
To be able to precisely prove your own performance in all relevant aspects
To be able to make the right decisions for the further development of your own organization more quickly
Precise benchmarking of HR service processes with quality-assured data, a transparent group of participants and an open dialogue on the results
A structured professional exchange: What do the "good guys" do differently from the average? Which concepts do comparable companies pursue? What works, what doesn't? What is planned and what has been rejected again?
The participants usually remain members of the community for several years and build up a close network with their colleagues from comparable companies.
Existing structural and organizational models are not fully able to address future challenges. Companies must adjust to the steadily rising volatility of their market, the mounting changes arising from the digital transformation and the new trends in the employment markets.
More than ever before, it is necessary to implement change and adjustment processes on all levels of the corporate structure to safeguard your company’s competitiveness. Against this backdrop, the implementation of strategies attuned to future requirements poses a major challenge.
Flexible structures ensure sustainable success
Material determinants of a flexible organization geared to future requirements are process orientation, communications and greater self-responsibility. Self-management mechanisms are increasingly replacing descriptions of duties and processes. Agile structures can minimize the risks arising from change processes while simultaneously making use of the opportunities. However, the ability to change presupposes a willingness to change. Thus, management is a role model in this respect.
