Elite Consulting Car & Bike Division GmbH is a TOP CONSULTANT

TOP CONSULTANT mentor Christian Wulff (former Federal President) honours the company.

One of the best consultants for medium-sized enterprises

Elite Consulting Car & Bike Division GmbH is one of Germany’s best management consultants and may now call itself TOP CONSULTANT 2016. This honour has been awarded on the basis of the results of a scientifically conducted customer survey. This is the seventh time that this quality seal has been awarded to a specialist consultant for medium-sized enterprises. As mentor of the comparison of consultants, former German President Christian Wulff congratulated the company at the third German SME Summit in Essen on 24 June.

This honour has been awarded on the basis of the results of a scientifically substantiated customer survey conducted by Prof. Dr Dietmar Fink, from the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, and Bianka Knoblach. Both are directors of the Scientific Society for Management and Consulting (Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung – WGMB), and have conducted the TOP CONSULTANT survey for the seventh time. Decisive for this award is that customers attest to the outstanding degree of professionalism of the consultant and are satisfied with the services provided.

‘Medium-sized enterprises expect that consultants communicate with them on an equal footing and develop individual solutions for their specific challenges’, says Prof. Dr Dietmar Fink, ‘TOP CONSULTANTS very impressively show that their services are perfectly attuned to their customers’ needs and that they are prepared to think outside the box. The TOP CONSULTANT quality seal provides reliable orientation for customers to find their way through the vast jungle of consultants and consulting services.’

Führungspersonal Elite Consulting Network

Top Consultant: Elite Consulting Network Group

Around 130 members of staff manage accounts for customers in the automotive sector throughout Germany and Europe. Regardless of where the challenges lie – in sales, marketing, aftersales or human resources – the interdisciplinary team of top consultants finds a solution. ‘The fact that we all come from the automotive sector and have gathered years of industry expertise at all levels and in all service sectors means that we are the people to get our automotive customers on the right road to success,’ emphasises owner Norbert Gailing. The spectrum of tasks handled by a top consultant ranges from situation analysis to strategy development, and from concept design to implementation. A top consultant trains and coaches, and, whenever necessary, also takes on direct responsibility. A Top Consultant in every respect.

A wide-ranging portfolio of services

What makes the consultants from Essen so different from their competitors is their exceptionally wide-ranging portfolio of services. Their portfolio will very soon be expanded again: the company is planning to expand its training division and intends to offer virtual classrooms and live seminars. Personal advancement of their own employees is also a very important issue: due to the complexity of the tasks that a top consultant may be confronted with, all senior consultants must pass a stringent assessment and qualifications programme based on strictly defined criteria for core competencies, methodology, social skills and critical self-assessment. The numerous long-standing customers are not the only ones to appreciate the expertise of these top consultants.

A wealth of experiences

If a customer needs new staff, the consultants conduct searches and recruit the best people for the job – or provide temporary personnel. Medium-sized enterprises account for around one half of the customers, while the other half represents many of the industry’s bigger players. ‘While we often have to find regional solutions for medium-sized enterprises, our focus for large-scale customers is set on nationwide strategies for Germany or even on international strategies’, explains Norbert Gailing, Top Consultant 2016. ‘We can do both, because we have gathered the necessary expertise with companies of all sizes.’
