TARGUS is an international top management consultancy for operations and stands for effective projects along the entire value chain across all industries.

TARGUS does not limit itself to analysis, recommendations or action plans, but places great emphasis on implementation. Implementation starts as early as possible to achieve quick results. TARGUS consultants are often also part of the implementation phase to ensure progress and achieve positive results together with the customers.

Even before the project begins, the goals and a course of action are defined together with the customer as part of a preliminary project that takes company-specific challenges and framework conditions into account. A project with TARGUS thus becomes a sure success for the customer.
