Heraeus Excellence Team

As experts, we advise and support Heraeus business units in striving for excellence in all functions and areas of work. Our consulting projects competently cover a wide range of business-relevant topics: From supply chain and commercial excellence to process management and administration excellence to the digitalisation of all functional areas.

Our Corporate Consulting Team was established at Heraeus in 2015 with the support of the renowned management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

Since then, we have been working on the continuous optimization of Heraeus business areas worldwide on the basis of sound methods and tools. In 2019, the Heraeus Digital Hub was added to the team, and in 2022 it was finally spun off into the new central business unit Heraeus Consulting & IT Solutions GmbH.

What we stand for

"Excellence" is the name of our in-house consulting team and also the overarching goal that unites all of the portfolio company's business units: Together, we strive for world-class levels in processes and products. As the Heraeus Excellence team, we pursue long-term strategies and the core idea of getting better every day. We strive to lead by example and encourage others to do the same. In doing so, we always take the perspective of our customers and collaborate at eye level. We are a reliable partner for the business units and question the status quo - always with the aim of generating the greatest possible added value for our Heraeus customers.

Sounds interesting? Then strive for excellence together with us.

What we do

As a corporate consulting team at Heraeus, we bring expertise, experience, project management skills and the often important view from the outside, but at the same time the knowledge of Heraeus portfolio structures, to all consulting projects.

Our core task is to work together with the business units on projects to improve performance and processes at all levels of the organization. This includes above all:

  • Ensuring and strengthening competitiveness - in the short and long term
  • Focusing strongly on customer benefit and satisfaction
  • Providing knowledge and best practices
  • Developing an efficient and robust process culture
  • Challenging the status quo
  • Driving a global high performance and continuous improvement culture

How we do it

The team is primarily concerned with optimizing the entire Heraeus supply chain, including planning and scheduling, procurement, manufacturing, and logistics.

Sales, marketing, pricing, and sales support as key components of the commercial value chain are the focus for this team.

The team is focused on optimizing Heraeus support processes, involving Corporate Functions such as HR, Finance, IT, as well as administrative teams in Heraeus business units, such as customer service.

The team supports the various Heraeus business units in implementing the digital transformation. In doing so, they act as digital delivery unit, digital consulting partner and tech pioneers.

Even though each group has substantive differences in its way of working, some common standards apply to all of them. We follow a standardized project approach, place the lean philosophy at the center of all activities, and value knowledge sharing and an open-minded culture.

For this we offer the following services:

  • Short analyses (ca. 1 week)
  • Classic optimization projects (ca. 3-4 months)
  • Long-term transformation support (especially for digital)
  • Implementation of digital solutions
  • Ad-hoc support and interim Management
  • Capability building and coaching

In the medium term, all projects will be transferred to the responsibility of the business units. The final implementation is thus the responsibility of the respective business unit management. They are supported by our Program Management Office (PMO) to ensure the sustainability of the changes initiated.
