Cost Saving Programmes


  • Existing yield pressure requires besides the strengthening of turnover also the implementation of cost saving programmes in order to achieve a sustainable position for the future
  • The goal is not to cut the costs at any price but to design the cost savings in a sustainable way and in a way that they do not jeopardise the success of the company

Project approach

  • Preparation cost baseline - recourse to Group data
  • Recording of resource data through web-based survey (if necessary)
  • Customer portfolio and performance assessment
  • Analysis of customer and services
  • Determination of optimisation focus
    • First evaluation of costs and resource structures
    • Definition of focus areas
    • Assessment of focus areas by means of 35 single levers
  • Determination of realisable cost levers
    • Consideration potential and implementation effort
    • Consideration implementation risks and time per lever
    • Determination of realisable levers
  • Deduction of action measures
    • Definition of single measures (responsibility, time, risk, implementation costs)
    • Preparation of implementation planning
    • Communication of measures and potentials
    • Upon request: co-ordination and project steering in the implementation of measures


  • Achievements of monetary quick wins
  • Mid-term implementation of potentials
