We take time for your topics!

Our clients approach us with a wide range of topics, which we successfully implement together with our “angels”. In the following, you will get to know our main topics and our consultants, who will be happy to advise you in the event of an enquiry. We take the time to discuss your individual issues intensively and to offer you a quick and effective solution for your specific problem.

Leadership, organisation and culture

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” is how Peter Drucker described the craft of leadership. In the flexibilised knowledge economy, this is probably more true than ever. A successful organisational design is a competitive advantage. A strong, purpose-oriented and attractive corporate culture inspires employees and focuses on a common mission. Transformational leaders develop their employees and achieve better long-term results, lead more motivated employees and design more innovative companies. Interim management is leadership, often under high pressure to deliver results and often under adverse conditions. Experienced interim managers with strong leadership skills can play to their particular strengths precisely here, create a positive momentum and, with their commitment, provide the impetus for the necessary transformation of the entire organisation.

As a leadership expert, our Managing Director Erdwig Holste is available to answer all your questions on this topic. As part of his doctoral thesis at Helmut Schmidt University, Hamburg, we regularly publish interim leadership studies.

Digital transformation

Even if expert knowledge and capacities are currently lacking in your organisation, you should tackle this topic promptly. Let experienced digital experts carry out the entire process, from the appropriate strategy to consistent implementation. Depending on your individual requirements, goals and your company’s situation, we will put together an expert or a team that will turn your digital wishes into reality and lead to success for your organisation.

Our Senior Consultant Jérôme Güls is in direct contact with a number of top-class digital experts who have a wealth of experience. Together with our long-standing associate partner Jochen Mayer and the Digital Excellence Group, Jérôme Güls supports many medium-sized companies in transformation processes.

International assignments

Professional management of existing and additional foreign activities is particularly challenging for medium-sized companies. Interim managers with a lot of experience abroad avoid the unnecessary stumbling blocks of internationalisation. They are familiar with the country-specific market conditions, are confident in negotiations and have the necessary cultural competence. As a founding member of the WIL Group, we are active in 37 countries and have a pool of 40,000 managers and experts who can be deployed worldwide.

Our associate partner Dietmar Kunisch-Quadflieg himself worked for many years in international corporations and can assist you with international enquiries. Together with our partners in the WIL Group, he is able to guarantee you perfect on-site support for your mandate.

Improving results

Have you already considered all the measures that could lead to an improvement in your organisation’s results? Our industry-experienced consultants advise you on planning efficiency improvement projects and provide you with experts or entire teams to implement suitable strategies. With deep expertise, they support the development of new strategies, optimise your processes and realign your organisation.

Our Managing Director, Daniel Müller, has already led a large number of profit improvement projects to success, knows the top-class experts personally and is in close contact with our clients. He is your contact for efficiency improvement.

Service excellence

Customer delight is the new customer satisfaction. For companies, it means adapting the entire organisation to the respective customer requirements with a new service culture, especially at every possible touchpoint. If possible, they should offer more than is expected in order to gain a competitive advantage. Let our experts transform you into an organisation with excellent service, from strategy to operational implementation – nationally and internationally.

Léon Bergmann is your contact when it comes to aligning your business from the customer. In a large number of projects, his candidate recommendations have led to the successful completion of service excellence projects.

Production set-up, optimisation and relocation

Changing customer needs, increased competition, ever shorter product life cycles and increasing internationalisation are forcing companies to build new production facilities, optimise their production or even relocate their production site. Our production experts deliver fast and sustainable solutions in all disciplines and can also handle your complex projects at home and abroad.

Our Senior Consultant Kai Reddig is your contact for all questions concerning production issues. With his own many years of experience in corporate and medium-sized companies, he can advise you and provide you with the right candidates for your topic.

Restructuring & turnaround

In restructuring projects, besides securing liquidity, the time factor plays an important role and determines the success of a turnaround. The timely involvement of a restructuring professional ensures a rapid analysis of problems and weak points and enables initial measures to be taken in parallel in order to secure liquidity. With our “Angels”, in the position of Chief Restructuring Officers (CRO), we have often been able to successfully lead companies out of crisis situations into stable corporate development.

Our associated partner Klaus-Olaf-Zehle, himself active as a coach and mediator in many restructuring projects, advises you on the appropriate procedure and provides you with the perfect candidate for your project – both nationally and internationally.

Mergers & acquisitions

In a disruptive market environment, mergers & acquisitions are a possible solution to achieve sustainable growth by opening up new business areas. In complex transactions where economic, legal and tax requirements have to match exactly, interim managers can ensure optimal organisation matching. Our experts support you in a targeted acquisition, merger or sale strategy and accompany you through the entire process without your ongoing business being unduly burdened by a lack of personnel resources. We are also happy to advise you on succession issues.

Our founder Thorsten Becker has been working with the best restructuring experts in the market for more than 20 years, who have successfully accompanied many company mergers. He is at your disposal for a consultation.

Cost reduction

Cost reduction potentials in companies are still not tapped and many savings potentials remain unrecognised. Their realisation in areas such as purchasing, production and supply chain in connection with process optimisations are implemented by our experts across all industries. In most cases, successfully implemented interim management projects ensure a long-term and effective improvement of defined key figures, not cosmetic results. Unlike in consulting, decision-makers do not just get the analysis, they get what counts, the measurable implementation. Interim managers take responsibility for results.

Our Senior Consultant Mark von Hauenschild, in our office in Frankfurt, advises you on all aspects of cost reduction and introduces you to our experts, who are the optimal choice for your specific project…
