We focus on providing solutions and methods for managing the ever increasing complexity of today‘s enterprises, products and processes. With this approach, the company was established as an implementation-oriented problem solver in the industry. Today we consist of about 50 people committed to ensure your company’s success through their work as strategy and organizational consultants, as well as management coaches. We are headquartered in Aachen, Germany, with subsidiaries in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and Atlanta, GA, USA.
The exact results of possible benefits through complexity reduction depend on the ability of the company to identify and understand individual complexity drivers, their interdependences and not least, to recognize their cost effects. Complexity Management is necessary to master the interactions of the three complexity drivers. This is exactly where we have collected 30 years of experience.
Thanks to our experience, our direct access to the most recent (state of the art) research results and our agility, we are capable to systematically analyze complex situations and to provide the information necessary in order to make meaningful decisions. To your immediate benefit and for minimizing risks in turbulent times.
As market leader and opinion former in the holistic management of variant-, process- and structure-related complexity, we support our customers in achieving superior results. We are not afraid of complexity. Properly understood and used, controlled complexity becomes a competitive advantage. We convince and inspire our customers by working together with them. Our methods and tools help to recognize complexity in a dynamic competitive environment, to implement processes and structures for control and even to expand this as a competitive advantage. Necessary external complexity required by the market is achieved with optimized and minimized internal complexity. This creates outstanding and sustainable results.
Complexity competencies are underdeveloped at all levels – at a time when complexity is omnipresent. Everyone should know that Complexity Management is at the core of good management and serves to build and expand the innovative power of the entire company. We are happy to help!
Prof. Günther Schuh, Ph.D., Company founder
When we started, we made product diversity transparent. Not good enough today. Complexity Management has become a comprehensive, fantastic discipline. My curiosity to keep finding new and innovative solutions is unbroken – for the benefit of our clients and our corporate group. We research, advise and practice Complexity Management ourselves, as exemplified by our revolution in electromobility.
