Strategy & Innovation

Defining and describing concrete goals and the orientation of a company is a necessity so that forces and resources can be bundled. A regular review is also necessary to verify one’s own position. We support organizations in developing, defining, and communicating this strategy in a targeted and effective manner.

Ensuring sustainable corporate growth through inorganic growth or innovations? We help to identify starting points for inorganic growth. As innovation experts, we value developing the content of innovation projects together with our clients and anchoring them sustainably in the company.

Checking your own economic actions for strategic sustainability? As strategy experts, we put the company’s sustainability orientation and current level of implementation to the test and work with our clients to develop appropriate measures that contribute to a sustainability agenda.

Main focus

  • Strategy development
  • Acquisition in Inorganic Growth
  • Due Diligence Support
  • Innovation Management
  • Sustainability

Organisation & Transformation

FourManagement Teaser für Beratungsbereich Organisation und Transformation

“Transformation is the consistent implementation of strategy”.

In today’s turbulent times, with some disruptive developments, setting up one’s own organization to be future-proof, robust, and at the same time flexible and sustainable is one of the most important management tasks of any company management.

This is a complex, challenging task that takes time, involves a wide range of issues, and requires extensive expertise and experience to succeed.

We know the challenges and answers to many questions of making organizations fit for the future. With profound and long-standing industry experience as well as a lot of expert and methodological knowledge, we support our clients in transformation and reorganization processes with individual, holistic, and innovative approaches and procedures. A very important aspect for us is the intensive involvement of employees in this process.

We are convinced that changes in organizations always work well when six factors are in place: an attractive picture of the future, extensive knowledge of the market, environment and customers, a strategic roadmap, targeted leadership and communication, effectiveness monitoring and the establishment of learning architectures.

We successfully accompany our clients in all six fields, always keeping an eye on the organization in all its facets and the goal of the change. This enables us to steer the transformation process in a very targeted man

Main focus

  • Accompaniment of Transformation Processes
  • Development of Sustainable Organizations

Leadership & Talent Management

The most important value of a company is its employees.
We are convinced that corporate success and satisfied, supported, and valued employees are in harmony. One look at the world of work is enough to see that this is accompanied by major challenges:

  • Young generations are making new demands on the compatibility of family and career, are demanding development opportunities, want to realize their potential and expect a sustainable corporate policy.
  • The shortage of skilled workers leads to competition for top candidates. Above all, your mission statements and visions are decisive in determining whether or how connected your employees feel to the company.

The world of work today is characterized by complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty. Digitalization and the use of artificial intelligence lead to new ways of working and require companies and their employees to adapt.

To enable our clients to actively meet these challenges and remain competitive in the future, we support them with five key areas of consulting.

Main focus

  • Leadership Principles and Guidelines
  • Management Development
  • Direct contact
  • (1:1) Coaching
  • Onboarding and Offboarding

Operations & Support Functions

FourManagement Icon für Beratungsbereich Operations und unterstuetzende Funktionen

For us, “operational excellence” is characterized by the stringent implementation of strategic goals in operations and the continuous improvement of core processes and their supporting functions In this context, it is essential to first clarify what the core processes are, what expectations internal and external customers have of them, and who is responsible for their results. Competitive advantages, efficiency gains, and ecological and economic sustainability are our drivers here.

Production, asset management, and asset services or infrastructure operations are core functions in which we have expertise and which we develop further in our projects. Shared services such as (energy) billing, receivables management, or warehousing/logistics are support functions in which we have proven expertise. To improve those core and support processes, we apply methods from Lean Management and Six Sigma, but also self-developed, proven tools, among others.

We support companies in realizing their full potential — across organizations or in specific functions.

Main focus

  • Asset Management
  • Asset Services
  • Supply Chain
  • Manufacturing / Production
  • Shared Services

Especially for the energy industry:

  • Network Operation
  • Network Planning and Construction
  • Metering Point Operation

Sales & Service

A successful customer interface is one of the most relevant levers for business success. We are convinced that a holistic view of the customer journey is essential and that this must include all other areas of the company in addition to the view of marketing, sales & service.

The key to developing (sales) strategies that create sustainable competitive advantage is comprehensive knowledge of the market, customers and competitors that is continuously generated and available within the company. And exploiting the many opportunities digitalisation offers.

We help companies to sharpen their focus on the needs of their customers and thus make the entire organization sustainably successful.

Main focus

  • Sales & Service Strategies
  • Sales Performance
  • Customer Experience
  • Digital Sales & Service
