In large product and infrastructure programs, optimizing speed and resource efficiency remains a key concern. Delays in programs are often due to the complex structures in (multinational) collaborations, which usually exist at all system levels. The implementation of ambitious schedules is further complicated by unclear requirements that were not clarified from the start, leading to late unplanned changes and high additional costs for certification. At the same time, finding qualified specialists becomes a challenge. The experts in the company are often tied up on several projects, involving the complex management of obsolescence or are dealing with legacy issues due to grown architectures in HW/SW. The art of the hour is to find the potential in the various dimensions of such a program, to derive suitable measures, to increase efficiencies and take the employees with you.

The competing goals of becoming faster and more flexible,but also not losing quality and approval capability,require:

  • a lean, scalable system architecture,
  • efficient and effective collaboration and networking with program partners,
  • targeted use of digital tools,
  • fast and, where necessary, well-founded decisions,
  • the right balance between autonomy and control in the program
  • and the reduction of overload situations for greater employee satisfaction

Together with our implementation-experienced experts, find the starting points to sustainably increase efficiencies, make programs faster and refocus resources on value-adding activities. Discuss success factors and gain insights from exciting contributions from different perspectives and industries.
