Global change and the environment to which companies are currently exposed have never been as challenging and diverse as they are today. Raw materials are in short supply and prices continue to spiral upwards with no end in sight, global transport is lagging behind, and the situation is exacerbated by crises such as the war in Ukraine, the effects of which on the manufacturing industry have yet to come to light.
Responses to this climate that are necessary from the company's point of view can only be mapped to a certain extent by means of existing organizational structures and additionally initiated projects.
When an emergency arises, perhaps even force majeure, we repeatedly find that day-to-day business is overloaded, and line functions are no longer able to handle the increased workload efficiently. These are usually cross-plant or cross-business unit/functional issues that would also exceed the scope of a project. This indicates that now is the time to initiate a task force, because a project will not be able to achieve what the task force is able to do.
To us as implementation specialists, no situation is unfamiliar or too delicate – we often start where others have left off or given up. The taskforce management approach we have developed is composed of a clearly defined approach and a set of methods and tools in combination with experienced project managers to manage the most diverse crises.
Tried and tested and coupled with our experience in change management, our services provide short-term relief for your organization. This applies to issues that have become unbalanced in all branches of the manufacturing industry, where on-time completion and deliveries are essential, as well as to the support of development projects, ramp-ups or relocations.
To address the sudden loss of procurement sources and key suppliers, we have developed the customizable, AI-based software 7Q1, which provides you with alternative suppliers and procurement sources along the entire supply chain within a very short time. A real added value for your company.
We help you move from the "fail fast, learn fast" approach to "fail fast, fail cheap" because you can access our wealth of experience and thus learn from mistakes that other organizations have already gone through. This means that we provide you with "recipes for failure" from a wide variety of industries where you might be short of your own lessons learned exercises. Consulting projects that will inspire you and from which you will emerge stronger.
A combination of success factors coupled with the experience of numerous taskforce assignments that have led to success will also successfully overcome your current challenges.
