In addition to the automotive industry, the Porsche consultants also support the aerospace, mechanical and plant engineering and shipbuilding industry. Other clients come from the service sector, the consumer goods industry as well as the retail and construction industry.
The company Porsche Consulting GmbH was established in 1994 from the successful restructuring of Porsche AG. Back then, radical rethinking helped to guide the sports car manufacturer out of a deep crisis back onto the path to sustainable success. The subsidiary started out with four employees and initially passed on knowledge on streamlined production and lean management to Porsche suppliers. Later, the methods proven at Porsche itself were also imparted to clients outside the automobile industry. Today, some 30 percent of Porsche Consulting’s workload is commissioned by clients from the Volkswagen Group. Some 70 percent of the projects are conducted at external clients’.
