Our Consulting approach

We offer support in 3 phases across the project life cycle: from the identification and evaluation of opportunities, through the strategy formulation and project execution, to the sustainable implementation and control of the fully realised opportunities.

Together with you, we can tailor the intensity, scope, and the respective phases of OCM involvement according to your goals and needs.

Roll-out Decision
for the Solution & the Implementation Plan
Implementation Tracking
Reporting, & PMO
You reach your actual potential
  • As-is analysis & benchmarking
  • Prioritisation & identification of critical improvement levers
  • Concrete implementation plan
In order to evaluate the status quo and identify opportunities, we carry out an Opportunity Assessment. The scope of this analysis includes: data collection, analysis, and evaluation; stakeholder interviews; market research; and benchmarking. On the basis of this quantitative and qualitative evaluation you will receive a report on the current status of your procurement organisation, a number of improvement actions, and, in consultation with you, a proposal for the implementation of these actions.
Design and realisation of strategy and opportunities
  • Realisation of savings and optimisation opportunities
  • Best practices, know-how, & fast implementation
  • Training & coaching of the new approaches and methods in your organisation
We realise your project plans to achieve savings, increase efficiency, and optimise the use of resources in procurement and logistics. Based on market research, industry comparisons, best-in-class and benchmark evaluations, the analysis of your expenditure data, and taking into account the activities already in progress, we determine your company profile, identify opportunities, and develop an implementation strategy for realising these opportunities. In coordination with, and the involvement of, your organisation, we will implement this strategy. Finally, we define a roadmap for ongoing sustainability and, if desired, provide support in this process too.
Sustainable implementation in your organisation
  • Permanent embedding of the results
  • Explicit handover of responsibility to those responsible in your organisation
  • Transparent contribution to EBIT
In order to implement the strategy and realise the opportunities sustainably in your organisation, we manage, support, or take over implementation projects of all kinds in the areas of procurement, logistics, and supply chain. These can include strategy implementation; project management and control for transformation programs; or individual, bespoke projects. This includes, for example, roll-out support following transport or software tenders as well as support in operational procurement or logistics.
