Klaus’ thoughts and actions are permanently focused on making companies more competitive. Differentiation through agility, flexibility, speed and cost plays a decisive role for him.

Fundamentally rethinking things and simplifying models is a core principle, because “the most direct path must be more efficient and faster than any detour”. Making processes across the entire value chain “zero touch capable”, empowering people in companies to think and act in new ways and supporting them in their decisions through clarity and trade-offs.
