Management Consulting

Our management consulting services aim to enhance our customers’ excellence in Product Development and Product Management. The result of an assignment shall always be a more efficient and profitable company than before we entered.

We achieve this by looking at the customer’s way of working and so finding a desired situation for the company. Our consultants have experience from different levels in product development, and are therefore able to deliver sustainable changes in customer organizations. With Evidente, you can rest assured that we have done our share of legwork prior to management consulting.

To us, the understanding of cross-functional dependencies in a company is absolutely vital and we often take on assignments in the periphery of Product Development and Product Management. Typical examples are Quality Management and After Sales operations.

A typical assignment:

One of our core areas is portfolio management, i.e. strategies and methods for how to plan and manage a product and project portfolio.

We normally divide the work in three stages: Analysis, Implementation, and Deployment. Evidente Management Group can drive all three stages if required. In a recent project covering the Analysis stage we worked closely with a mid-sized global company to set a technology and product planning process.

Through stakeholder interviews we got a quick overview of the current situation, including best practices within the company. The results were put into context with our experience of relevant alternative ways of working. With the customer we outlined the desired situation and suggested a new process.

This was followed by two workshops with the stakeholders where we facilitated the discussions and the new ways of working were presented for feedback. The result and deliverables included the plan for implementation and the outlined process with input/output activities.

In this particular assignment we used our specific competence in optimizing the value from an R&D organization and Product Management. At least as important as the domain knowledge are the general competences used in most of our assignments – interviewing, facilitating and leading workshops and describing processes in a communicative and understandable formats.
