TARGUS has received several awards for exemplary project work in the past two years. For good reasons.
Case Study: Even if your own production is geared for efficiency, the entire supply chain must still be monitored at all times. To avoid production downtime due to a supply disruption, it is necessary to react immediately to the earliest problem signals from throughout the supply chain. TARGUS has actively supported a global engine manufacturer in identifying and targetedly securing “shaky” suppliers and deliveries at an early stage for its highly complex range of parts.
Effective Crisis management with a proven framework
2020 will forever be remembered for a single global event. The COVID19 crisis was on a global scale unlike any event in the past 100 years. As a result, many business leaders have learned something very valuable about their organization – “Do we have the internal capabilities to deal with a crisis effectively?”
One thing is essential if we are not simply to survive the current crisis, but to emerge from it stronger than before – a goal with results-oriented coordination of all counter-measures. For a company of any size, challenges are normally known and dealt with in day-to-day business. But a crisis is not normal business! Suddenly and unexpectedly, disruptive forces affect all corporate functions, everywhere. This level of disruption is far more than can be handled within existing management structures, which are likely to lack the speed and capacity to handle the crisis effectively.
In a crisis, the behavior and performance of partners in the supply chain can change drastically. Often, suppliers who were solid, now present substantial risk.
Approaches like TARGUS’s Supply Chain Stress Test are used to quickly identify supply chain risks and bottlenecks through evaluating scenarios for different market developments.
As management consultants, we are constantly working with several teams at multiple locations and often in different time zones. TARGUS is typically on-site, working alongside clients, 5 days a week. However, due to this crisis remote collaboration has become part of our daily business.
The current situation represents an immense task for all companies. Challenge yourself and your team with the Quick Scan from TARGUS. Check whether you have addressed all major mitigation categories to emerge stronger than the competition.

Read as a case study: Good advice alone is not enough. If corporate consultancies want to achieve optimal impact, they must ensure that ideas are successfully implemented for their clients. TARGUS has helped a global pharmaceutical company to greatly increase its market potential by putting recommendations into action.
Usually we are happy if people in the top management of large companies already know us. In this particular case, however, the joy of being treated as an insider tip for highly qualified consulting services on executive floors is even greater: We were recognized as Hidden Champion in the area of “business performance”.
For the second time in a row, TARGUS Management Consulting has achieved a top rank in “Wirtschaftswoche” magazine’s “Best of Consulting” competition. TARGUS defended its first place rating in “Operations” from the previous year. A new addition was the “Strategy” (Restructuring) category.
