Master Plan of Action

We have developed the Master Plan of Action (MoA) for Engineering Excellence as a scalable and robust framework for the measurable transformation of your engineering. Due to its effectiveness and transparency, we now use this methodology across the board in almost all of our transformation projects. Based on the actual state, strategies and target images are designed that shape processes, products and technologies, your organization and engineering IT as well as future business models. The achievement of the target images is ensured by providing concrete capability descriptions and use cases in the form of implementation profiles. These are the starting point for a business case.

The Masterplan of Action therefore focuses on answering the questions of "Why, What and How" of digital transformation. You too can benefit from this.
