Hidden Champion 2018!

Date: / Category: News China


Germany’s top managers have once again named Staufen the best Lean consultancy firm.

The highly-regarded industry study “Hidden Champions 2018.” surveyed over 700 managers at German corporations and mid-sized enterprises and selected Staufen among the finest names in the industry for its expertise in Lean management, purchasing, R&D, technology management, operating efficiency, shop floor management, Industry 4.0 and as a specialist in the manufacturing industry.

We are proud to have been chosen as Hidden Champions of the consulting industry once again. This award reflects the great appreciation that the decision-makers in the German industry have expressed, and it gives us confirmation of the work we do on site with our clients” said Staufen’s COO Wilhelm Goschy with a smile. “The world’s most important consulting companies serve as our benchmarks. And we try to be at least one step ahead of them, day by day — and not just in Lean management, our area of special expertise.”

The Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung (WGMB), the scientific society of management and consulting, has now conducted its study on the hidden champions of the German consulting market for the sixth time. From June to October 2017, research director Dr. Dietmar Fink conducted an extensive survey with 734 managers of DAX-listed and major corporations as well as mid-sized businesses. The objective was to determine which specialist consultants Germany’s top executives regard as having greater expertise in their respective fields. A total of 22 consulting companies were named Hidden Champions 2018. Staufen is one of them!

This is the third year in a row that Staufen has received this award. In May, an industry survey conducted by Brand eins and Statista also named us  “Best Consultant” as in previous years. Furthermore, in 2017 Staufen was listed among Germany’s best employers, according to a study by the Great Place to Work® Institute.
