5DOBT - Business Value Determination

with the Dimensions of Business Thinking

Whether for projects, workshops, or in our software tool "Value Engine" - you can learn to use the DOBT method and become a value creator!

Is entrepreneurial management highly complex?

The decision making and the derivation of measures appear to be complicated and non-transparent due to specific criteria, goals, key figures, chances & risks.


But which factors contribute significantly to success and how can they be evaluated?


The DOBT method helps us to focus on the essentials, but also to react and control flexibly when conditions change. [...] Thus we have quickly recognized existing deficits in our project definitions, but also clearly emphasized the added value of the projects. 

Klaus Glatz, CDO at Andritz AG on the introduction of the 5DOBT


Supplement of the Handelsblatt, Edition March 19th, 2019

For whom is 5DOBT suitable?

For EVERY VALUE CREATOR: Executive Board, Management, Project Management, IT, Controlling, Administration, Operations, (...)
The potential value analysis method is suitable for the evaluation of any plans, projects, decisions, innovations and strategies, as well as for companies of all industries and sizes. The approach with five dimensions is universally applicable and offers the possibility to abstract and thus to expand the dimensions and their areas of influence individually.

How does 5DOBT work?

The methodology for determining business values and potentials developed by MARKTGUT can be applied in many ways and has been validated by numerous projects on the market. 5 Dimensions of Business Thinking, in short 5DOBT, comprise the dimensions:

All dimensions are defined by different areas of influence, which are to be understood as drivers for optimization and value creation in projects. The 5DOBT can be used for the most diverse questions and industries, since they leave a lot of room for individual requirements in their definition. They can be used as a tool for creating impulses and can be extended as needed. Based on the dimensions and their more detailed areas of influence, it is possible to determine the realizable potential of projects. For this purpose, a potential value analysis methodology is applied, which helps to identify and evaluate the most important fields of action for optimization measures in order to be able to quickly make solid decisions for or against a project.
