The speed of change has created new challenges, and operational excellence addresses these challenges across the full organizational value chain, driving improved bottom-line business performance. By adopting a structured and people-centric methodology you can achieve your business plan in a dynamic, sustainable, and timely fashion.

Our operational excellence capability addresses fundamental questions business leaders have, such as:  

  • What actions do we need to take to improve customer satisfaction?  
  • How can we optimize our bottom line and improve our company in an agile and sustainable way? 
  • Is there a way to guarantee tangible improvements for the most critical and transverse problems? 
  • Can we empower and involve all the organization levels? 
  • How do we monitor the action plan implementation through performance measurement while enrolling contributors? 
  • Is it possible to ensure that the required changes are embedded in the culture and our day-to-day way of working? 

To address these questions, the BearingPoint People & Strategy team uses the following performance drivers to help you achieve operational excellence while focusing on your key assets - your people. 

  1. Lean Management – For BearingPoint, Lean management is a way to reach excellence through client satisfaction and employee pride. We have a 3-level Lean offer: Operational Excellence vision definition, In-field actions (kaizen) for both Operations and non operations activities, and People coaching and Lean training (Yellow, Green and Black belts certifications).
  2. Resources Planning – based on three core offers - S&OP/MPS, Workforce Planning, and Make or Buy strategy – as we believe that securing the relevant and most efficient resources (human, material, information) to meet internal and external customer demand is a performance prerequisite.
  3. Cost optimization – We can support you in addressing your competitivity and efficiency stakes with various cost optimization methodologies that combine top-down and bottom-up approaches according to your company culture and emergency level: Zero-Based budget, Booster Methodology, Complexity cost analysis, Footprint revision, etc. 
  4. Data management – We know  that data is at the heart of operational excellence. Thanks to our two core offers, Data analytics & AI and Process Digitalization, we can support you in optimizing your data management strategy and conduct the relevant POV (Proof of Value) achievement.
