Adapting to new realities by actively shaping the future
The current need of many companies to realign themselves usually requires a holistic and systematic approach. Individual measures are at best a start but rarely the solution for fundamental and sustainable improvement or transformation. The prerequisite for this is a functioning target management that involves the entire organization and enables collective development. KEY VALUES transformation consulting creates the basis for suitable action programs and targeted change. This also applies to the digitization of business units, processes and digital customer contact. Our digital audit includes an inventory and derived measures for a realistic and value-adding digitization and a learning organization. But emissions also need to be measured, evaluated and documented in the area of corporate sustainability. We will be happy to show you how this can be designed as data-based as possible and integrated into the organization.
Efficiency programmes: Data-based efficiency improvements in a short time
Data is one part of the truth, interpreting it in context is the other. Digitisation without digital data is hardly imaginable today. We rely on data analyses with state-of-the-art software as the basis for better decisions. Our efficiency programmes cover the entire value chain from cross-company data collection to measurable efficiency increases and effort minimisation. This includes the mapping of actual company processes, the identification of cost drivers or missing parts, the early detection of risks in the supply chain, unproductive waiting times or unnecessary transport routes.
Setting the course for professionalisation – Business & Operational Excellence
Many companies and employees suffer from inefficient process management, conflicting goals, measures that fizzle out, inadequate control mechanisms, inadequate measurability and evaluation, unused opportunities and high risks. All of these are fundamental weaknesses in operational business operations and thus sustainable blockages to success. Business and Operational Excellence focuses on essential direct and indirect customer and market requirements, requirement priorities, functional analyses, alternative rough concepts, as well as permanent optimisations at product and process level. This also includes the streamlining of processes.
Go new ways
Getting big changes on the right track
Sustainable change processes are a major challenge today. As a rule, they are cross-company with different stakeholders and interests. They take both companies and employees out of their comfort zone, overwhelm many employees and can paralyse entire companies instead of moving them forward. This makes it all the more important to provide clear orientation in transformation processes: Mission statement, rationale, approach, participation are just a few key terms of an internal navigation system for successful transformation.
Process analysis and process design – measurable optimisation of interaction
Implementing change but leaving everything as it is – that doesn’t work. Often it is cumbersome processes, their lack of documentation and visualisation, inadequate control, interface problems or lack of integration that hinder companies on a daily basis and drive employees to despair. A systematic process analysis and a process design adapted to the situation help to stabilise the “backbone of the company” and to coordinate all resources productively. Process management does not mean having the right tool or the right IT, but that processes are designed efficiently and effectively. Agile process optimisation can also be a good starting point here.
Shaping the future together.
Preserving the tried and tested and making everything else better
Accompanying transformation processes means specifically supplementing internal competencies with external knowledge, methodology and experience. KEY VALUES is a sparring partner, auditor, initiator and supporter of project management.
Securing operational capability – managing operational excellence
Pragmatic implementation does not take place in the delivery of extensive power-point presentations, but rather jointly “on-the-job”. Only in this way can we jointly ensure the lasting effectiveness and successful implementation of new goals, strategies, processes, structures and steering mechanisms. It is also crucial that companies do not allow themselves to be imposed with just any master plan, because every company is different and therefore needs a “tailor-made suit” and not an “off-the-peg solution” that does not fit at all.
Culture and future programmes can turn visions into reality – but not magic.
Lost touch? Situation tense? Trench warfare instead of consensus on goals? Sometimes a fundamental culture and future programme is the last chance to become competitive or sustainable again. When waterfall organisations get in their own way or board members sit out urgently needed changes before retirement, in short: when all efforts to improve seem to fail, a fundamental reorientation is necessary. Everything is put to the test and first the conditions for a new start are created. In a transformation process that usually lasts several years, the necessary measures are assessed according to priority and feasibility.
Our customers ask us ...
How does our vision become a sustainable reality and successful in the market?
We want to change things, but HOW?
We don't have clear processes. How can we build this in a targeted way?
We are going round in circles! Why do we find change so difficult?
Our competitors are already working agilely - how can we catch up here?
How can we streamline our processes and digitalise some of them at the same time?
Some of us are sceptical: could we be yesterday's news tomorrow?
What criteria can we use to measure our transformation success?
With us, many employees have not yet been picked up and do not even know the goals. Can you imagine that?
How do we manage to implement the important changes alongside the day-to-day business?
Our mission statement is a paper tiger without teeth. Why is that and how do we move forward?
The pain is there, we are willing to change. But how do we become capable of change?
Knowledge transfer? What do you mean by that?
How do you start the digital transformation?
