Interims
Management

Do you need to quickly and proficiently bridge an upper or middle management position or do you lack resources for a complex and demanding project? We provide you at short notice with a suitable, temporary manager. He will support you with his specific experience and relevant knowhow to master your upcoming challenge.

Profit Line Improvement

Are you aware of your company’s ongoing earnings growth or cost reduction potentials and suitable measures to achieve those? We analyse your company's situation and potentials and develop a portfolio of recommendations. To ensure a tangible and timely outcome we support you in the implementation of your most promising potentials.

Restructuring & Turnaround

Are you facing challenging business situations and you would like support to get your company back on track? Using the “Smart Restructuring” methodology we ensure short- and medium-term liquidity and coordinate the interests of the main stakeholders. Together with you we define a set of emergency measures and plan the medium- to long-term realignment of a sustainable competitive business strategy.

Strategic Project and PMO Management

Do you have challenges with your complex and demanding projects? According to Gartner Group 25% of all projects fail within one year due to the fact that they are not properly initiated and / or not value-driven. We support you to set up state-of-the-art project and PMO governance structures. In case of challenging ongoing problem projects we support you to turn-around and recover these projects.

Sales Performance Improvement

Are you struggling to increase your top line, or worse are you facing declining revenues and margins? To increase your revenues and profits we support your company in streamlining your sales and go-to-market strategy. In addition we help you to implement a state-of-the-art governance system based on meaningful easy to measure KPI’s.

Board Member & Independent Director

Represent your board members the right mix of knowledge and management experience? As an independent body with a broad range of industry knowledge we act on request on your board as independent directors to support strategic changes and ensure an effective and efficient operation and sustainable growth.
