„Best Business Transformation“: Staufen.Inova AG once again honoured with renowned ASCO Award in the category „International“

In this year’s competition for „Best Business Transformation“ held by the Association of Management Consultants Switzerland, Staufen.Inova AG presented the project „Dynamo15“ implemented at Pistor AG. The jury was convinced by this group-wide initiative aimed at continuous process and cost reduction improvements, while anchoring the transformation into a self-learning organisation.   

The project at Pistor AG serves as a textbook example of effective communication during change initiatives and demonstrates how it is possible to trigger true enthusiasm for a joint system of continuous improvement values. The newly created „Dynamo“ brand is now an integral component of   the Pistor leadership process. From April 2015 to the end of 2016 alone, Dynamo employees generated over one thousand ideas and improvement suggestions. This is equivalent to realised savings potentials of some 900'000 Swiss francs.  

„We are understandably proud that our principle of approaching projects as true partnerships with our clients is proving successful, and has again been honoured by the ASCO Award. That seal of approval motivates us to continue adopting this strategy“, says Jürg Hodel, Managing Director of the Swiss management consultancy specialists Staufen.Inova AG. „This coveted prize awarded by the professional representative body of Swiss management consultants is not only a considerable honour for our clients and our entire team, but also recognition of our innovative and unconventional methods.“

ASCO has awarded its prize for the best and most sustainable company transformations in the context of promoting Switzerland as a business location for the twelfth time. The Award is intended to document the fundamental reorientation of the company involved, to highlight the effective relationship between the client and its consultants, and to emphasise exceptional successes achieved. The multiple award winners Staufen.Inova AG are among Switzerland’s leading consultancy specialists for lean management and supply chain management.
