Our projects are diverse and varied and last from two months to two years, depending on the type of project.

It depends on the topic. In “traditional” cost reduction projects, we start with a data collection phase to analyze requirements. Then we examine the affected procurement markets, develop suitable procurement strategies, send tender documents, and negotiate with existing or potentially new suppliers. Finally, we implement the new supplier contracts.

In projects for the further development of our client’s procurement department, on the other hand, the focus is on exploring the existing procurement organization: Depending on requirements, we conduct extensive training sessions lasting several days or restructure the procurement department.

In supply chain management projects, we investigate the status quo 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 introducing of monitoring systems.

We have an individually designed further training program for all employees. Approximately six to eight development days are available each year, which can be used either for fixed external training courses from our training catalog or for individual development measures. We support your further training - both personally and professionally.

To maximize your learning experience, it is best to stay with us for six months - giving yourself more time to explore everything we offer.
