Business Engineering – the model we apply to produce results

The Business Engineering approach distinguishes three design levels of an enterprise:

  • Strategy: business model comprising the mid-term to long-term development as well as the positioning on the marketplace, featuring relevant business segments divided into customer segments, market services, and sales channels.
  • Process: organizational model comprising processes, tasks, roles, and their organizational embedding.
  • System: information systems architecture, IT components, and data collection.

In addition, Business Engineering comprises two other design areas:

  • Culture, leadership, and behavior: for consideration of cultural and human aspects when seeking for solutions.
  • Transformation and (network) control: for structuring the step-by-step transformation of enterprises (or parts of enterprises), and for cross-department and/or cross-enterprise coordination of several network participants.
Consortial Research – the process we follow to produce results

Consortial Research, the scientific approach we use in our Competence Centers, constitutes a symbiosis of researchers and practitioners. While the researchers analyze the scientific state of the art and develop new solutions, the practitioners make sure the results produced are applicable in real-world settings. Consortial Research comprises four phases: 1) Analysis, 2) Design, 3) Evalutation, and 4) Diffusion.
