Method Park and new founded Process Fellows GmbH collaborate

Process management for medium-sized companies in the automotive industry

 

The automotive industry can only master its challenges with efficient processes. This particularly applies to medium-sized suppliers. To address the needs of these medium-sized companies even more specifically, the Process Fellows GmbH was founded at the end of March. Method Park and Process Fellows plan a cooperative collaboration.

The Process Fellows GmbH now offers its expertise in sustainable process management particularly for medium-sized companies in the German automotive industry. Suppliers and second-tier companies characterize the landscape of the most important German industrial sector and need support by process experts, just like OEMs and first-tier companies, to successfully compete on the future market. This is exactly what the portfolio of Process Fellows GmbH offers.

In the future, Method Park Consulting GmbH, the market-leading company for process consulting, can focus on the implementation of its strategy on sustainable support for the Fortune Global 500 of the automotive industry.

The consulting services of Process Fellows GmbH strategically complement the consulting of the Method Park group so that both companies will cooperatively collaborate.

The automotive industry is undergoing one of the most radical changes since the innovation of the automobile. Megatrends such as connected cars, IoT or autonomous driving will change the business models of manufacturers and their suppliers from scratch.

These challenges can only be mastered with efficient and effective processes. Therefore, the automotive industry needs strong partners who not only offer realizable solutions, but also contribute to standardization bodies or the training of assessors. Method Park achieved an excellent reputation in this sector and is globally considered as market leader in the above-mentioned process topics. The consulting company successfully shifts emphasis to large-scale customer projects with the largest systems/software providers and their premium suppliers.

However, many medium-sized companies – not only in the automotive industry – stand at the beginning with the management of software engineering, digitalization and further trends, and urgently need support. Conditions and mindsets of the key persons there often differ from those in large companies; they require a great deal of experience with people and a strong focus on business models and processes. The Process Fellows have the specialist knowledge on processes and the required soft skills to offer professional and future solutions particularly for medium-sized companies.
