Cost reduction concept

What are the right measures for my company?

Your challenge

Unforeseeable events create cost pressure and endanger your business. You don't have time for lengthy analyses and need to take action quickly. At the same time, employees and partners must be taken along with the change and informed in the right way.

Your goal

  • Agile and quorate cost reduction process that responds quickly to changing conditions
  • Employees and partners should always be taken along
  • Introduction of effective measures to reduce costs while maintaining operations and quality
  • Creating transparency regarding the effectiveness of measures

Our solution approach

  • Set up a quorate and available improvement team (centralized or decentralized)
  • Provision of communication management for support (information collection, distribution..)
  • Implementation of a control and reporting system to document a current status
  • Provision of technical solutions to simplify team collaboration (also in virtual teams)

Additional services

  • Reinforcement of the improvement team with additional experts (executives, change management, IT security, project management...)
  • Support of your organisation in the implementation of measures (also remotely)
  • Provision of interim managers in case of lack of critical resources
  • Improve home office productivity and cohesion (for employees and managers)
  • Coaching and training of your employees (also remote)
  • Check and optimization of the technical infrastructure (for virtual working)

Your challenge

Operational Excellence: Increasing competitiveness through effective and efficient processes. Establishment of a culture of continuous improvement with a strong customer focus:

  • Operational Excellence is the operating system of a company. OpEx helps to transform strategic goals into results. With the right method, problem causes are solved quickly, measurably and sustainably.
  • You want your employees to learn this knowledge in order to be independent from external support in the medium term. The knowledge should be quickly converted into measurable results.
  • Operational Excellence has a positive influence on the corporate culture: stronger customer orientation, higher transparency, cross-departmental cooperation, change is seen more as an opportunity than as a risk

Your goal

  • Stabilization of your production and service processes
  • Adaptation of the process performance to the current demand
  • Identification and seizure of new market opportunities

Our solution approach

  • Maturity assessment - to determine your status quo and identify optimization potential
  • Design and introduction of OpEx programs
  • Knowledge transfer - training, e-learning, certification and methodical coaching
  • Conducting Team Excellence or Process Excellence Workshops
  • Development of process management systems with a continuous improvement approach
  • Analysis of data and measurement of capacities (performance management)
  • Optimization of product development processes (shorter time to market, better products/services)

Our experience

  • Our consultants have over 20 years of experience in implementing OpEx programs in various industries (both service and production). They have a Master Black Belt, Lean Expert or SCRUM Master qualification
  • We combine state-of-the-art methods such as Lean Management, Six Sigma, Change Management and Agile (Scrum, Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Product Design Sprints)
  • We support you both nationally and internationally

Your challenge

You must identify and implement cost reduction measures quickly and in a structured manner. Experts and process participants are working to capacity in projects or day-to-day business.
