MGRP – our expertise
Digital technologies and services have profoundly changed the expectations of our clients in recent years. Our consulting approach aims at recognizing and exploiting the potential of these technologies. We leverage technology effectively to address business challenges and increase the value of a business sustainably. To achieve this, we adopt an analytical and systematic approach towards realising profitable and successful outcomes for our clients – because success is no coincidence!
MGRP – our services
MGRP puts the interest of our clients first, with the priority of improving their performance substantially and sustainably. Towards this end, MGRP offers services tailored to the individual needs of our clients - Consultancy, Management, and Executive Sparring. We ensure our consulting teams are established around the specific needs of our clients, with the appropriate mix of expertise and experience required to achieve successful outcomes. For example, our Executive Sparring service is mastered by consults with profound experience in senior executive positions – matching expertise to requirements is a promise that we give to our customers.
Professor Carl Heinz Daube, MGRP partner, has held a number of diverse senior management positions, including that of Managing Director for the Federal Republic of Germany – Finance Agency.
MGRP provides management consulting specifically for information-intensive industries. Whether strategic, business, process, compliance, operational or IT consulting, our focus is always on realising the maximum benefit for our clients.
Individual solutions for clients - from ideas to action. We are not only measured by the formulation of winning strategies, but also by their effective implementation. Successful execution by our experienced MGRP employees, either via a project or in an interim management capacity, will always be done in the best interest of our clients.
Supervisory boards, boards of directors, and senior management have far more responsibility than ever before in our globalized, digitized and fast-moving business world:
- ensuring that employees are motivated and engaged
- facilitating positive and sustainable business growth
- effecting successful change management and ultimately
- making sure their companies remain profitable
Executives are often isolated and left to their own devices, without the opportunity to exchange or converse openly with peers or benefit from their expertise and experience. An impartial, trusted sparring partner that has no invested self-interest in any particular outcome can be crucial in this context.
This is precisely what MGRP can offer you: a personal sparring partner at peer level, who you can talk to in the strictest confidence, about the topics and challenges that matter the most.
MGRP – our focus areas
We see IT Operations as the assurance of a smooth and regulatory compliant operation, whilst mitigating potential areas of conflict associated with Change and Run activities.
Only those who feel part of the team can lead it. We distinguish ourselves through analytical excellence, pragmatism, and commitment – utilising both agile or classic approaches as appropriate.
Digital Transformation & Processes
The digital revolution and a changing customer forces companies to adapt. We help you to develop and implement digital strategies.
IT Migration & Sourcing Advisory
Projects of IT migration start with deliberate sourcing decisions. Together we determine your specific (outsourcing) needs and put them into action
IT Organisation and IT Governance
We establish a clear understanding and structure for IT organizations, including binding interfaces between all participants as well as effective controls.
MGRP – our solutions by industry
Automotive & Suppliers
The need for mobility and intelligent solutions is constantly increasing. Changes in operating conditions and frameworks that result from new markets, new competition, and stricter regulations are having an effect on car manufacturers and their suppliers – we help our clients achieve success within these challenging contexts.
The Digital Economy is now pervasive, affecting all areas of private and economic life. Disruptive innovations, technological advances, and rapid product life cycles define competition. We help our customers to realise the benefits of the digital economy in a sustainable way, regardless of company size or context.
Structural changes and regulatory requirements have a significant impact on the financial industry. Traditional business models are being turned upside down by innovative FinTech companies with digitization becoming fundamental. We tailor solutions for our customers and guide them in their digital transformation.
Creating added value for patients is fundamental for health insurers and service providers and increasingly determines their business models. Intelligent information strategies, big data, and digitization amongst others are a few key topics that challenge our customers. We enable our clients to successfully respond to these challenges, provide related services at competitive prices, and ensure the organization's sustainable growth.
Biotech and pharmaceutical companies have every reason to be optimistic, as the future offers them many opportunities. Realising this potential however requires commercial, scientific and operational excellence in a continuous digital value chain. We support our clients in seizing these opportunities whilst systematically mitigating any associated risks.
For social enterprises and non-profit organisations, conditions are becoming increasingly complicated: maintaining the balance between ensuring operational quality and achieving the organisation's objectives is becoming extremely difficult for many institutions to accomplish. Finding the right digital solutions for successful positioning and delivery of services in this context becomes a challenge. We support our clients in seeking sustainable and profitable positioning without losing sight of their social mission.
The digitization of content, distribution platforms, end devices, and building technology allows previously separate industries to merge, changes to value chains to occur and the creation of new business models. Digital products, intelligent search and navigation options, as well as disruptive innovations represent unprecedented market opportunities. We guide our customers in the conception, implementation, and marketing of digital assets.
Transport & Logistics
No other sector is affected by globalization as much as the transport and logistics industries. Smart supply chains, fast delivery times and digital value chains pose new challenges for this sector. We develop solutions with our clients to meet these challenges, and support them in their implementation.
Low interest rates, changing requirements, higher consumer expectations, and an aging consumer population are intensifying competition in the insurance industry. Digital products, advanced analytics, customer-focused engagements, and vertical market strategies provide opportunities for an organisation to establish itself ahead of the competition. We help our clients in this process and guide them in their Digital Business Transformation.
MGRP - references
The need for discretion with regards to our customers and their projects is self-explanatory. The following references are therefore in the form of a brief summary of our consulting mandates. We would be happy to discuss our projects anonymously with you in detail, upon request and following consultation with our customers.
Intelligent Configuration Management
Elimination of inconsistencies and quality deficiencies led to the comprehensive development of an intelligent configuration management system at a German clearing house, in compliance with increased regulatory requirements from the regulatory authorities. MGRP delivered the necessary improvement using a methodical approach, high degree of ITIL process competence, detailed knowledge of regulatory requirements as well as a "zero tolerance strategy".
In order to reduce costs and meet regulatory requirements, MGRP supported an international manufacturer in its digitization strategy to 2020, from conception to implementation. The focus of the strategy was on a phased renewal rather than a complete overhaul of legacy machinery and infrastructure.
Integrated Identity and Access Management (IAM)
Increased sensitivity to security requirements, enhanced process efficiency, and new regulatory requirements led to the need for an efficient and effective IAM at a German financial services provider. MGRP led the initiative, carefully balancing the requirements of implementing comprehensive security measures, whilst simultaneously improving overall efficiency and mitigating higher costs.
Transformation to the Cloud
The need for greater flexibility in service delivery and cost management led an exclusive private bank to shift their delivery from traditional in-house IT production to a highly modern, ITIL-oriented IT service delivery model. A cloud computing environment was identified as the most appropriate mechanism for doing so. MGRP not only guided the client and managed the technological transformation, but also handled the organizational and procedural aspects.
