Transformation

THE SILVER BULLET TO ENSURE BUSINESS SUCCESS

Challenges

FAST, EFFECTIVE, FIT-FOR-PURPOSE

The transformative pressure exerted on automotive companies by the disruptive forces of digitalization, connectivity, and electrification goes to the heart of what defines a business. Successfully weathering and executing such a transformation holds the key to securing a company’s future.

We transform companies by helping them put into place organizations that are fit-for-purpose, synchronized to their strategy, capable in culture and skills, and steered by leaders who have the skills to bring complexity under control.

This is no small feat. To be viable in the long term, our clients must reconcile the conflicting priorities of strategy, structure, and culture in their respective market environments. The resulting issues are complex and require the right balance of conceptual strength and industry expertise. This is exactly what we bring to the table.

Who we are

THIS IS US. MEET OUR TRANSFORMATION PRACTICE

As a cross-functional practice team, we help our clients navigate business transformation successfully using a holistic methodology and deep expertise in industry and transformation.

Together, we find solutions for the “why, what, and how” questions our clients are asking.

WE ANSWER OUR CLIENTS’ TRANSFORMATION QUESTION

We believe that successful transformation is built on both people and organizations. And we believe that people and organizations always have the ability to change and develop themselves further. How? By systematically and radically questioning the status quo.

Transformation is complex and requires holistic system thinking. From ambition to implementation, from executive to employee, from downstream to upstream. Our offering connects the dots end-to-end.

STRATEGY Development

If you don’t know where you want to go to, every step is in the wrong direction. To avoid this, the key is to formulate a winning transformation purpose and develop your organization’s strategy. This is something that must be based on hard facts, identified through strategic assessments of external drivers such as markets and competitors as well as internal factors like shared beliefs and your organization’s overarching strategy.

Our offering includes:

  • Purpose development
  • Corporate strategy development based on empirical market and enterprise evidence, and shared beliefs
  • Developing functional strategies that are aligned with and contribute to achieving the strategic targets of the company as a whole
TRANSLATING STRATEGY INTO ACTION

The transformation should not run parallel to your organization like a separate project. To successfully bring about fundamental change, the strategy must be translated into success-critical tasks and specific implementation requirements, using methods like Objectives & Key Results or Hoshin Kanri.

Our offering includes:

  • Translation of strategy into success-critical tasks and requirements for organizational development
  • Strategy deployment and execution through approaches such as Objectives and Key Results and Hoshin Kanri
  • Breaking down strategic targets into trackable actions
ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN

During the transformation, the organization changes holistically. This starts with the underlying operating model design including development of a viable system model and strategic partnerships. In addition, the overall process design must shift the organization toward more agility, resilience, and adaptability. Foundational work must also include defining a new target culture as well as new key capabilities.

Our offering includes:

  • Design of viable organizations and operating models that increase organizational resilience, agility, adaptability, and robustness
  • Development of lean end-to-end processes that eliminate waste while creating customer value
  • Defining corporate target cultures, values, and critical behaviors as key enablers for corporate development
  • Identification of key capabilities based on strategic fit and future customer demands
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT & COACHING

Individual and team leadership coaching goes far beyond managing the status quo: rather it is about anchoring the big picture, embedding concepts of ownership, and engendering transformation from within the organization itself. It also includes training in resilience, entrepreneurship, responsibility, and ambidexterity. And we always aim at combining different perspectives for leadership: It’s about leading your business, leading others, and leading yourself.

Our offering includes:

  • Development of leadership models that allow executives and managers to reflect on and adapt their own leadership style
  • Individual and team leadership coaching, development, and training to strengthen entrepreneurship, resilience, ownership, and ambidexterity
  • Applying Berylls’ three-pillared approach to leadership coaching consisting of: “leading my business”, “leading others”, and “leading myself”
CHANGE & COMMUNICATION

Throughout the transformation, good communication should be the drumbeat of change - a regular, predictable ‘voice’ that creates transparency and ignites new ways of working. This starts with a tailored communication plan and employee engagement. In so doing, we evaluate where the organization stands today, which strengths it can make better use of in the future, and which cultural patterns may stand in the way of successfully implementing its strategy. With our step-by-step implementation approach, we accompany managers and organizations from analysing the current culture to designing and implementing a new target culture.

Our offering includes:

  • Corporate culture assessment and development to make current culture tangible and actively shape target future culture
  • Mobilizing employee communities with pride-builder approaches and ambassador networks
  • Target external and internal stakeholders via suitable communication formats and enhance end-to-end employee engagement and networking
CAPABILITY BUILDING

Sometimes organizations are ready to transform but lack certain key skills. Identifying qualification requirements and suitable training design are the first priority. Staff development, including awareness, reskilling and upskilling can then begin. In some cases, it may also be advisable to work with strategic partners and to enable collaboration.

Our offering includes:

  • Identification of qualification requirements and design of comprehensive training journeys and concepts
  • Staff development and education ranging from awareness-building to reskilling and upskilling
  • Large-scale education programs to enable collaboration within strategic partnerships
Transformation Support

A holistic approach and conceptual framework from strategy development to implementation is critical. Similarly, transformation support is required as needed, from sparring to training to full support. This also includes agile transformation management, with a data-based transformation monitoring.

Our offering includes:

  • Holistic transformation support from ambition-level setting to strategy development to implementation
  • Ad hoc transformation support from sparring to training to full-scale onsite support
  • Agile transformation management including data-driven transformation monitoring and tracking

Core beliefs

Our core beliefs about Transformation

A different perspective, a collaborative spirit, courage, experience, and enthusiasm are what distinguish us. We see ourselves as long-term transformation agents and not as short-term catalysts. Sustainable solutions are what we strive for.

To realize this ambition, we not only use our own team's cross-entity know-how but also have access to a broad network of experts and institutions that we rely on whenever necessary.

What makes our team unique? The people and their experience. Whether it's the challenges of providers in the mobility ecosystem - manufacturers, suppliers, dealers, mobility providers, startups - or functional issues along the entire value chain. We bring these perspectives together to develop solutions that work.
