Interim & Program Management

Faustsolutions offers flexible, internationally shaped and highly capable senior management resources, which require very little “lead-time” for delivering effective support (On-or Off-Premise). Equally Faustsolutions is highly capable in managing programs / projects, ensuring delivery of measurable outcomes, in line with expectations and committed results.

In times of stretched resources or transformational processes, organisations are benefiting from external management capacities, either through bridging temporary capacity gaps or developing and sustaining new or missing in-house capabilities.

Merges & Acquisitations

Every transaction is different and requires the right accompaniment of either internal or external experienced resources, in order to find the right way along the M&A journey. Realizing the potential behind the underlying business case and the actual M&A transaction, together with the mitigation of is the responsibility of the management team.

Faustsolutions is well equipped with capable resources to assist management through the many different steps as well as the required change management and business integration processes after the completion of the deal.

A plethora of subjects has to be thought through before, during and after the process of any M&A (or divestment - from the seller’s side). Often capacities and capabilities within an organization are either stretched or rather scarce.

Given the wide range of experience and prior successful project assignments, Faustsolutions can offer high value support to organisations. We are supporting organisations going through the various project-phases, ensuring to get the best out of the underlying business case, initiating necessary change management processes (during and after the closing the deal), incl. post-merger integration efforts.

  • Business driver analysis (granular cost- and revenue driver)

Service & Restructuring

Understanding, reviewing and amending the way in which way customer propositions are generated and how effective the value creation process of the operating model works, has been becoming an asset for any organisation.

Not only cost pressures, but also external factors (eg. exponentially growing digitalisation of businesses-models) and as a consequence the rapidly changing competitive landscape leads to business- model adaptations and remodelling requirements.

Given our expertise and seniority we can assist customers in developing that capability, drawing the correct conclusions and going through the required change management- and restructuring-processes.
