Automotive / carmaking

Protect and consolidate your position amongst the technological competition

Automotive is one of the most important branches of industry in Germany. Millions of jobs depend directly and indirectly on the automotive sector. As part of globalization, a fundamental structure shift has already taken place at carmarkers and suppliers - for example, production processes and chains have undergone reorganization and as a consequence production sites have been relocated abroad. Today the industry faces another, global structure shift which is being brought about by three factors - electromobility, autonomous driving and the broad dependency of the industry on fossil resources. These trends are placing suppliers in particular under considerable pressure to adapt. In the face of shorter and shorter innovation cycles, “time to market” is the driver. Sought after are flexible management resources with industry experience whose support to companies is tailored to precision, and who manage the imminent transformation processes as efficiently as they do sustainably.
