Downstream Commercial & Retail

Imagine “… your downstream customer’s business has become unwieldy, kept busy with micromanagement and rather slow at reacting to fast-changing customer behaviour and upcoming technologies. With our support your organisation will gain back adaptive responsiveness and up-to-date capabilities using a structural approach to develop a fit-for-purpose organisation, to coach and train the people in charge, to design efficient processes and contracts, and to approach the markets with a marketing-driven mindset.”
