Most people see consultants as an annoying evil, like a dentist. You don't go until it really hurts, and you are glad when you don't have to see him anymore. Prophylaxis would be easier, more relaxed, and cheaper. Recognize the management consultant as the helping hand that facilitates time-consuming project work and as the experienced force that brings expertise to processes that are otherwise always postponed. What you don't get done in 24 hours, stays undone forever. Use me as a business consultant to bring structure to your business and maintain your performance.
The work in modern companies is determined more than ever by the so-called soft skills and the behavior among each other. But processes, knowledge and quality must not be forgotten. All these components are interdependent if an optimal result is to be achieved. Exact thinking, planning and implementation are the basis for your success.

We offer you the complete range of a management consultancy and that individually tailored to you: from analysis to implementation. We develop, advise, and accompany you in business management, during individual projects and beyond.
Together we will reach your goals!
More than ever, companies are challenged to secure their future with effective strategies and concepts. In times of global sales markets, outsourcing and tough competition, future-proof strategies, reliable products, and good service are in demand. This is the only way to retain customers in the long term.
I have developed a step-by-step concept in which companies can start at any point. It includes the development of a value concept, followed by the development of a vision, and from this the development of strategic goals. Only then is it planned how these can be transferred into the company's daily routine and made tangible for the workforce.
With the help of the bottleneck-focused strategy (German: Engpasskonzentrierte Strategie, EKS) by Wolfgang Mewes and the concept of coach Stefan Merath, we show ways how business-owners, start-ups or self-employed individuals can grow into the role of entrepreneur to successively reduce their share as specialist and manager of the company.
In organizational development (OD), we work on the targeted change of structures in the company. "Turning those affected into participants" is a core concept of organizational development and has rightly found its way into many other methods.
They are invited to prepare the organization from within for new requirements or to optimize it. Joint learning processes are initiated and methodically accompanied. In doing so, we use the skills of all employees and the organization to optimize individual or all processes. The starting point is often a growth- or reduction-related adaptation of structures, integration into market requirements or the development of a structure based on ISO 9000 (international standards on quality management and quality assurance). We increase effectiveness and employee satisfaction in equal measure. The object of change during organizational development is not only technical and organizational structures, but also interpersonal communication and behavior patterns, as well as the norms, values and power constellations prevailing in the organization.
We see quality management (QM) as a part of functional management to increase the efficiency of business processes. Material and time resources must be considered as well as the maintenance and further development of the quality of your products or services.
Our quality management optimizes communication structures, opens professional solution strategies, and thus increases customer satisfaction and staff motivation. We standardize and document action and work processes, set standards for products or services, provide targeted training, and examine the equipment and design of workspaces.
When designing work processes in organizations, QM should ensure that quality concerns take their assigned place. Quality management leads in the first step to the assurance of their standards, in the second to a higher quality operating result, and in the third it keeps sufficient flexibility.
Good quality management means identifying weaknesses, exploiting potential for improvement, and utilizing idle capacity. Quality covers every area of your company and extends to cooperation with suppliers and customers. To achieve a defined goal, qualification of employees, materials, processes, etc. must reach a certain quality. We help you to develop or optimize your quality management comprehensively or also in individual projects. You choose priorities, we accompany you during the whole project.
In this business area we deal with the possibilities of influencing the knowledge base of a company. The knowledge base of a company is understood to be all the data and information, all the know-how and all the skills that this organization needs to solve its diverse tasks. In this context, individual knowledge, and skills (human capital) are systematically anchored at different levels of the organizational structure.
Knowledge management can therefore be understood as intervening to prevent knowledge loss. In this context, knowledge within a company is understood as a productive factor that takes its place alongside capital, labor, and land.
The strategic basis for knowledge management is provided above all by the analysis of a company's knowledge structures. The focus here is on explicit and tacit knowledge, but also on information chains (e.g., in the context of market design and influence) as a company resource and production factor. Implicit knowledge can take the form of knowledge of authority (supervisors), knowledge of sovereignty (e.g., in IT), or personal knowledge that I do not release, e.g., to secure my job.
Human Resources Development
In this field of business, we deal with the goal of enabling people, teams, and organizations to master their tasks successfully and efficiently in operational work systems and to face new challenges with self-confidence and motivation. The task includes the targeted development of people to optimally achieve corporate goals, considering the needs and qualifications of the employee or a group of employees.
Strategic personnel development is part of the corporate strategy and is therefore derived from the corporate vision and goals. This is usually done through a needs analysis.
The required qualifications and competencies are compared with the current ones, thus determining the training and development needs. The needs analysis considers not only professional qualifications, but also leadership, social and entrepreneurial skills. Employees are also assessed according to their potential development opportunities (potential analysis).
Awareness of a health orientation has arrived in companies. But what if you want to go beyond green apples at the entrance and Nordic Walking on Wednesday afternoons? Occupational Health Management (OHM) is a strategic task of the management, like organizational development and strategy. Many companies want to start OHM as a project first to gain experience. If there is a good response from those involved, it can then be firmly anchored in the organization.
I support companies in setting up BGM as a project, assessing the need in the form of a holistic audit, developing the appropriate structures, and driving forward the implementation together with the project team. I follow a three-pronged approach, which begins with the organization, since the framework conditions for many things are created there. Furthermore, the focus is on the level of interaction between the participants, because this is where the friction, conflicts and stress arise. In the innermost focus lies the individual level of the human being with his needs, limitations, but also with his responsibility in his task in the company.
The prioritization in the approach always results in a mixture of the results of the audit and the framework conditions through the current budget.
