Our Approach

In times of extreme change, decisions have a special weight. ROI-EFESO helps manufacturing companies to make the right ones. And not only that. We remain responsible when it comes to implementing these decisions quickly, consistently and sustainably together with our customers.

More than 3,000 successful projects

ROI-EFESO does not have a crystal ball either, of course. But as an experienced operations consultancy, we have gained a lot of experience with unpredictability and complexity in more than 3,000 successful projects for industrial companies around the globe. This means, for example, that we can answer the question of what your global production network should probably look like in ten years' time and how you can keep this footprint as flexible, lean and resilient as possible - or help you on the ground to maintain your quality and efficiency standards, find the right employees and ensure that the selection of suppliers does not become a game of chance.

It can also mean helping to align the global development organization to operate efficiently, openly and close to the market, rather than spending five years polishing products and services to a shine that, thanks to technical disruption, will not find a market after three years.

Our operations services also include aligning technologies, processes, systems and supply chains in such a way that a boost in operational excellence provides you with additional resources and opportunities for action, or that we draw up concrete roadmaps for you to turn automation, digitization and Industry 4.0 into sustainable value drivers - regardless of what and where you produce in ten years' time.


We have received a number of awards for this work, of which we are proud. For example, in 2019, 2018 and 2015 as the best consultancy in the segment "Engineering, Production and Industry 4.0" of the study "Hidden Champions of the Consulting Market" by WGMB and 'Capital'. Or as category winner of the "Best of Consulting" competition of the magazine "WirtschaftsWoche", most recently in 2014 in the category "Competition Strategy". Or as winner of the "Best Consultant" seal of the business magazine "brand eins" - seven times in a row since 2014.

We are proud of our awards: ‘Hidden Champion‘ by WGMB and Capital, ‘Best of Consulting‘ by magazine WirtschaftsWoche and ‘Best Consultants‘ by magazine brand eins.

Pragmatic, sustainable, measurable

Our claim as the leading operations consultancy in the DACH region is to find effective solutions for these and many other challenges that are typical in the global manufacturing industry. And effective for us means: pragmatic, sustainable, measurable and combined with a consistent transfer of know-how. We believe that knowledge must work and evolve to create value. That's why we have established extensive training and qualification programs and our own learning factories in addition to in-depth technological expertise, management and methodological skills and local teams in the world's most important production and sourcing regions. These are available to you both as part of higher-level consulting projects and independently of them.

We come to initiate sustainable changes - and we stay until the project goals are achieved. For this reason, and because we speak the language of our customers from the shop floor to the top management level and tackle each project phase ourselves, ROI consultants are motivating and accepted partners. This is how we establish long-term customer relationships - and mutual success.
