true competence

TrueNorth stands for the conviction to sustainably support our clients with our own and lived management experiences and values.

As a company and as a team, we clearly stand out from the great mass of consultants. Through a noticeable and tangible consistent alignment of our actions with our values.

Our education at first-class universities, personal "polish" in excellently managed companies and in some cases many years of management experience are solid foundations of our consulting work. Many years of work in top management consultancies give us the conceptual strength to analyze particularly complex situations clearly and to develop tailor-made solutions - you will find our project results in your P&L or balance sheet. 

Curious why we call ourselves TrueNorth?

Business Recovery & Interim Management & Interim Management

Whether you want to initiate a necessary operative and strategic transformation at a timely stage or you are already in discussion with your financiers about the extension of an existing financing, re-financing or replacement of a financing or early indication of a performance failure - the focus is usually on far-reaching transformations, efficiency improvement and cost reduction programs.

From our point of view, after a successful conception (audit, independent business review or reorganization report according to IDW S6), a professional and tight measure management with direct reference to P&L and balance sheet is essential for the implementation. IDW S6), professional and tight management of measures with direct reference to the P&L and balance sheet is essential for implementation - trusting and appropriate communication with stakeholders is essential for success.

The use of an interim manager in the role of Chief Transformation Officer (CRO) is often necessary - we are well prepared for this and only "get off the boat" when the transformation is complete.

Mergers & Acquisitions and Carve Out

Even today, opportunities for new growth must be explored and new business models must be developed. The value creation structure must be regularly reviewed and adjusted.

Here, all topics of organic growth through strategic and operational realignment take effect, but especially the options for inorganic growth (and also divestments) through appropriate mergers & acquisitions and carve-out measures.
We strongly recommend to initiate both project types with care and sufficient time in advance. As a matter of principle, we carry out very reliable forecasts of dis/synergies and manage your post-merger integration professionally and consistently. We are happy to be judged on this.

Operational Excellence

In den aktuellen Zeiten von Volatilität, Unsicherheit, Komplexität und Mehrdeutigkeit steht jedes Unternehmen vor operationalen Herausforderungen insb. um technologischen Umbrüchen und damit auch oft verbundenen veränderten Geschäftsmodellen (bis hin zu Black Swans) zu begegnen. Die Wertschöpfungsstruktur und -kette muss deshalb regelmäßig überprüft und technologisch und strukturell angepasst werden. Die Digitalisierung von Produkten und die ganzheitliche und digitale Gestaltung (von der EDI-Anbindung bis hin zu KI-basierten Entscheidungshilfen/Bots) aller Prozesse end2end entlang Wertschöpfungskette ist condicio sine qua non.

Es betrifft im Detail die Supply Chains für B2B und B2C, die Implementierung dazu exakt passender IT-Architekturen, aber auch die i.d.R. notwendige kunden- und prozessorientierte Transformation der Aufbau- und Führungsorganisation. Globale/regionale Wertschöpfungsstrukturen werden über dedizierte Supply-Chain-Risk-Management-Systeme überwacht.

Wir sind hier zu Hause und werden Sie von den Chancen begeistern – dabei bleiben wir stets am Boden und überzeugen in realistischen überschaubaren Schritten.
