The Client: German automotive supplier
Business Challenge: Deliver innovative tools and processes with limited in-house resources
Our customer needed new tools and new ways of doing things but had a very limited resource base in-house. Furthermore, the intention was to design and manufacture the equipment in a developing nation.
Clearly, our customer needed us to source the expertise and capacity it didn’t have itself. We carried out an intensive survey of suitable business partners for them and vetted the prospective companies’ financial and technical credentials. Then we interviewed key personnel in the shortlisted companies before making a final recommendation to the client.
Once the company was chosen, we continued to guide this project until our customer’s goals had been delivered.
