Digitalising the value chain

Thanks to years of experience in the field of consultancy, our Werks.Experten people know precisely how and where transparency is required along the value chain, enabling them to take quick and effective decisions.

In doing this, we provide for:

  • the clear identification of the digitalisation vision
  • the proactive involvement in the digitalisation process of all participants
  • sustainable implementation of the digitalisation approach in the company
  • the unambiguous presentation of data-based cost/usage, and possible optimisation

Short CV

  • Set up in 2013

    Werks-Experten corporate consultancy was set up in 2013. Consultancy services include management consultancy, transaction services and operational excellence.

  • First sourcing projects / our Shanghai office opens

    Our product portfolio and our sourcing work are expanded as part of a number of restructuring projects, and our office in Shanghai opens for business.

  • Crisis management

    The consultancy is increasingly receiving commissions for crisis management. Crisis-related relocation and bottleneck management are now part of our portfolio, in addition to interim mandates.

  • Collaborative partners

    In order to remain focused while at the same time meeting the needs of our customers completely in the sense of a 360° commitment, we have entered partnerships in the areas of technology, quality, IT and sales and marketing.

  • Start-up management

    It is far better to prevent a crisis than to react to a crisis. Werks.Experten supports its clients right from the start.

  • Werks.Experten PERFORMANCE GmbH spin-off

    In many projects we are not actually advisors but are involved, temporarily, as active operational colleagues and experts. In order to do justice to this situation, Werks.Experten PERFORMANCE GmbH will be set up in 2020 and will carry out all operative services in the future. The company Werks.Experten corporate consultancy will continue to exist but will focus primarily on the areas of management consultancy and transaction services.
