What I can do for you

A manufacturing company is economically successful if it can pay reasonable prices for raw materials, while keeping production costs under control and achieving sale prices that secure the company’s continued existence.

Business management essentially entails monitoring and managing cash flows in purchasing, production, and sales. The aim of business management is to create transparency and learning opportunities for the whole organization. 

As a business management consultant, I’ll set out on the journey with you to make your business management processes visible and to expand or adapt them into a control tool.

Building blocks of my business consulting

Controlling systems with and without SAP

Smart, learning companies require robust and rigorous controlling systems to monitor and control their cash flows. Their structures and systems constantly need to be adjusted to meet business requirements. My role is to collect, enter, and analyze actual data and to combine it with the company’s in-house expertise.

I advise companies – mainly from the food industry – on establishing or optimizing controlling processes:

  • From the analysis of the design, from a business management perspective, through to the technical implementation of SAP and/or other systems

Financial planning

Solid financial planning plays a major role in the controlling process. My role could be to provide external insights into existing plans, or to establish a new basis for planning.

As a business management consultant, I can scrutinize parts or the entirety of your company’s financial planning:

  • Creating monthly and annual financial statements
  • Performing investment calculations
  • Financial planning for companies and company units

Technical implementation

As an SAP consultant with many years of professional experience, I’m used to working with many different SAP tools. I also work with Microsoft systems. As a business informatics graduate, I have the necessary technical know-how and expertise.

SAP

  • SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC)
  • SAP S/4HANA
  • CO-PA (Profitability Analysis)
  • CO-OM (Overhead Cost Controlling)
  • CO-PC (Product Cost Controlling)
  • SAP Crystal Reports Lumira
  • SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio
  • Analysis for Office
  • Business Explorer BEx
  • SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC)
  • SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)
  • SAP Business Warehouse (BW)
  • SAP BW Integrated Planning (BW-IP)

Other software

  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Power Point
  • Microsoft Power BI

Consistent reporting systems

A structured, standardized, and therefore easy-to-understand reporting system makes controlling processes visible. It is the basis for decision-makers in companies being able to make well-considered decisions. It is advisable to base or implement the SUCCESS principles (Say | Unify | Condense | Check | Express | Simplify | Structure) from the International Business Communication Standards (IBCS).

I can advise you on introducing a reporting system that is based on the IBCS system.

  • I can also assist with setting up a standardized reporting system, from the implementation phase, through to creating and distributing reports.

Many controlling systems come up against the limits of the software being used when they seek to implement the IBCS principles, or when it comes to company-specific requirements for visualizations. For many tools, add-ons are available that specialize in visualizations of large volumes of data for reporting.

Education/training sessions

A company is only ever as good as its employees. Business management training sessions for managers at all levels – from division managers through to the managing director – should be a fundamental component of any training option.

I offer tailormade training sessions for my customers:

  • Training sessions on general and specific business management topics
  • User training sessions for various software tools from SAP and Microsoft and add-ons from third-party providers

In my training sessions, I mix business management material with implementation in various software tools.

The training sessions are run either as in-house or online training sessions. They can be held for whole teams, small groups, or for individuals.

The training sessions can be run in English or German. I also have French and Italian language skills.
