Transformation as the basis for long-term success

Create along the entire value creation chain now

Employing a staff of 320,000, the MEM industry is the largest industrial employer in Switzerland. The success of the industry is based on its efforts to continuously develop its products and technology, combined with its high degree of adaptability. This combination gives the companies a real competitive advantage among the international competitors. 

With an export ratio of almost 80% (of which almost 60% to the EU), it is crucial for the Swiss MEM industries to continuously expand their competitive advantages. 

These days, in order to continue to excel among the global competition, companies must anticipate market changes within increasingly shorter cycles – taking a reactive stance is simply no longer enough. The MEM industry is heavily exposed to today’s instabilities in global supply networks. The task here is to review the supply chain footprint and implement measures designed to stabilize it, and to structure value chains in such a way that they become more resilient, robust and responsive in the long term. 

We can master this challenge with you successfully. Working as a team, we continuously and congruently align all relevant dimensions and activity fields with a target image, review them with you, adapting the objectives to the new market requirements. 

We are experts for a successfully and sustainably lived transformation in the MEM industry. Our industry experts accompany your operation in the continued transformation, and they account for all success factors. Together with our network partners, we provide you with specialists for every relevant question. Our vision: Establish a sustainable, lived change culture in a learning company.

Concepts and solutions 

For many years, Staufen.Inova has successfully provided MEM companies support in optimizing their processes in all direct and indirect areas. 

Many Swiss MEM companies assert themselves very well among international competitors. Agility and time to market are essential skills for staying one step ahead of the competition. Given international networking among companies on both the supplier and the sales side, transparency, planning and control of cross-company processes are critical. This requires a holistic approach from product development through sales and operations to after sales service. Our experts show you how to make the entire value chain end-to-end transparent and how to move the right levers for improvements along the processes. 

Megatrends such as digitalization, globalization and individualization pose new challenges for companies. To successfully manage this change, a living culture of change is required throughout the company as a whole. More than ever, the focus must be on the continuous pursuit of improvements so that companies can respond flexibly to developments. Above all, management is expected to demonstrate leadership skills. What is needed are individuals who listen, guide and motivate. They need to be willing to hand over responsibility to their teams, while offering them support and guidance throughout the change process. Our experienced consultants and coaches accompany you on the way to this new corporate culture. 

New technologies allow companies to further optimize their processes along the entire value creation chain. Against this backdrop, operational excellence has huge potential: All processes can be structured and controlled more efficiently and effectively. For medical technology manufacturers, the opportunities offered by digitalization, networking and big data are crucial. Production in high-wage countries such as Switzerland can again become more interesting in the future. 

Staufen.Inova AG accompanies you with digital consulting approaches from analysis to operational information dashboards. You create transparency from the strategy to operations with new insights and information networking.
