Strategy in cost, procurement & digital management
The fourth industrial revolution is affecting all manufacturing industries. What effects and opportunities arise for organizations, processes, products and customers is often not clear.
We support you in finding and defining the right strategy for you and formulating the necessary fields of action in a roadmap that can realistically be implemented.
You can rely on MARKTGUT to bring a wealth of practical experience in the areas of procurement management, cost management and digital management to this process.
Our practical experience is based on the creation of corporate strategies, the design of business strategies as well as the definition of functional strategies, which have sustainably realized the ideal alignment and optimal value for the respective client.
- Integrating innovations
- Expand technical maturity levels
- Economic benefit versus investment
- Efficient use of qualifications
Extensive solution experience for systems
When implementing processes and methods in IT systems, there are a variety of challenges. Without neutral expert knowledge and established methods such as user-centered design, this can quickly develop into a wrong direction and lead to unintended consequences.
Therefore, we invite you to use our experience for strategic alignment, requirements management, vendor selection and rollout support for the introduction and implementation of vendor-independent systems such as
- SRM, SCM
- Ratings / Audits
- eSourcing, supplier portals, PLC / EPC
- Collaboration, Saving Management
- Planning systems, reporting (BW, BI)
Moderation & escalation management
Changing organizations or methods, as well as the integration of IT tools often leads to challenges in any given project: usually deadlines or agreed upon promises are not met or agreed upon deliveries do not meet the needs.
Thanks to a wide range of experience in project reviews, MARKTGUT is specialized in analyzing any given situation and, as a neutral partner, steering the interests of all parties back in the right direction.

Potential value analysis 5DOBT
With the potential value analysis 5DOBT a standard methodology was created, which makes it possible to determine the economic benefit of projects and to justify project realizations.
Through numerous practical applications, we have seen an increasing popularity, so that this method has become a standard in the market. We offer a training that teaches the application of the methodology as well as our self-developed framework. The focus of this training is to ensure that the participants are able to apply and use the method independently for future project plans.
- For all departments and hierarchical levels of companies
- Promotes ideas, but also justifies decisions
- Practical exercises and application examples, individually tailored to participants and industry

5 Dimensions of Business Thinking, 5DOBT for short, encompass the dimensions of cost reduction, sales increase, efficiency increase, risk minimization and innovation level increase.
All dimensions are defined by different areas of influence, which are to be understood as levers for optimization and value enhancement in projects. The 5DOBT can be used for the most diverse questions and industries, as they leave a lot of room for individual requirements in their definition. They serve as a tool for stimulating thoughts and can be expanded as required.
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 optimisation measures in order to be able to make well-founded decisions for or against a project quickly.

Which projects are of value to my company? How can I control and monitor efficiently? And how do I manage to make our success measurable?
For these challenges in multi-project management, we have developed methods and systems that support the holistic management of projects within the company. The focus is on reducing complexity and supporting innovation and cooperation from the idea to the success of the project. With the help of our value engine, we offer systemic support for uniform data storage, maximum transparency and mobile availability. We attach great importance to a methodology developed from practical experience with minimum complexity and maximum coverage of information requirements.

How can companies determine how far they have developed compared to other companies in the areas of cost management, procurement management and digital management and how much potential has not yet been used?
MARKTGUT's own Excellence Rating provides answers to precisely these questions and shows companies their own situation through an objective view. On the basis of a questionnaire and expert interviews, the development status of the corresponding area in the company is analysed and the results are transferred to the rating. The classification of the development status is based on a 4-level rating model, which is defined by defined criteria and maps the levels in an informative, controlling, integrative and optimizing manner. After the status has been finally determined, the target development can also be determined so that the unused potential in the 5DOBT can be determined in monetary terms and action measures to achieve this goal can be derived.
