That depends on the topic. In "classic" cost reduction projects, we start with a data collection phase for needs analysis. Then we analyze the affected purchasing markets, develop suitable purchasing strategies, send out tender documents and negotiate with existing or potential new suppliers. Finally, we implement the new supplier contracts.
In contrast, projects for the further development of our clients' purchasing department involve the analysis of the existing purchasing organization: depending on the requirements, we conduct extensive training sessions lasting several days or restructure the purchasing department.
In the case of supply chain management issues, we analyze the ACTUAL situation along the value chain at the beginning of the project. The current performance standard is then examined for optimization potential using best practices and measures are designed. The final step is the implementation of measures tailored to supply chain management and the introduction of monitoring systems.
We have an individually configurable continuing education program for all employees. Approximately six to eight development days per year are available, which can be used either for fixed external training courses from our further training catalog or individual development measures.

Internships last between three and six months. We prefer six months because then you will be properly trained and able to work independently. In addition, the learning curve is a little steeper with six months, because you have more time to get to know different branches/industries/projects/etc. - win-win!
