Structuring of Business Processes
Changed conditions, such as the growth of a company, often require an adjustment of the structural and process organization. Management, completely engaged in the daily business, frequently has no time to reflect on these strategic changes and, where appropriate, to implement changes. We analyze, focused on the task and the actual processes and depending on the specific situation, together with your management team, the current processes, define the target processes and develop the necessary measures for a transition.

Know How Safeguarding
Have you ever considered what happens when your most important employee informs you, that he / she has signed a contract with a competitor? Have you thought about what happens if one of the most important experts in your company, maybe even yourself, for whatever reason is not available for weeks or even months? Suddenly, not only capacity is missing, but a lot of knowledge isn’t accessible to the company. “We have everything in written! Our processes are well documented!” you might argue. But knowledge is like an iceberg: only a small part is visible, the majority is under water, which means: it’s only in the minds of people. Even the temporary loss of an important person can cause immense economic loss to your business. We analyze the situation in your company together with you and work with you on strategies to address the potential knowledge loss preventatively. This includes measures to prevent that employees leave in an unplanned way (retention management).
