We build the bridge between
business needs and university to boost your performance

As a management consultancy, we know that employee talent guarantees corporate success.

The promotion and development of talents poses problems for companies because classic educational institutions do not train current and future-oriented topics and internal company knowledge management is often intransparent.

How can talents nevertheless be informed about current developments and trained on them for performance increase?

Empowerment as a Service

Our Academy has made it its business to process experiences from project work on central topics in training courses and offer them to customers. Over the past 20 years, we have shaped the importance of product cost optimization at OEM, Tier1 and Tier2 through Cost & Value Engineering and professionalized the interaction between purchasing, development, production and sales. Similarly, today we are shaping the importance of CO₂ optimization of components (Product carbon footprint – PCF) and companies (Corporate carbon footprint – CCF), in particular the optimal relation between costs and CO₂-Emission on the way to climate neutrality and providing management decisions.
