Interview with Alexander Jüttner, Managing Director of Rath GmbH and Head of Purchasing Rath Group.
Were you skeptical or rather open-minded at the beginning of the project?
Alexander Jüttner:At the beginning of the project I was very skeptical. We had some classic consultants in our house that caused unnecessary stress and cost more than they brought in. Kloepfel Consulting’s concept was the exact opposite. We were introduced to people who didn’t analyze for a long time and present highly engraved PowerPoint slides, but who worked on a success basis and really helped to save money.
Thank you very much for the interview!
We optimize your purchasing.
