Communication and change management in the restructuring of an automotive supplier
By adopting a new corporate culture, embracing new forms of collaboration, and having a united top management, the turnaround can be achieved and the challenges overcome.
A central challenge of our restructuring program was to guide management, executives, and employees on their way to the new organization. cetacea advised us extensively on this, ranging from communication strategy to a tailored change concept to defining corporate values. The jointly developed description of LEONI's corporate culture and the subsequent international leadership program provided sustained support for the transformation into a new structure and corporate culture. cetacea convinced me personally through a combination of technical expertise, experience, and empathy, showcasing their high level of professionalism. With cetacea, we have succeeded in effectively integrating the often underestimated "human factor” in restructuring processes.
Dr. Gerhard Rübling,
former Head of Corporate HR LEONI
During the ramp-up phase of our company, we quickly needed flexible professionals with implementation speed. cetacea was ready to go from the start and helped us with strategic positioning and professional communication in the initial phase, as well as setting up the necessary communication structures for the critical subsequent phases. In addition to strategic and conceptual expertise, I am impressed by mindset, attitude, and personal commitment.
CEO Gauss Fusion GmbH
A central challenge of our growth and transformation program was to make the opportunities and potential of closer collaboration between previously separate organizational areas clear and plausible to the managers. One of the key issues was to communicate this transformation program as part of thyssenkrupp's overall strategy. cetacea not only painted the big picture but also brought emotions into play, without which no endeavor can succeed. cetacea demonstrated a very good understanding of the business and cultural requirements of the process and its implementation.
Dr. Hans Christoph Atzpodien,
former Member of the Executive Board,
We needed internal communications specialists who were familiar with special situations. It was important to us that our situation was quickly understood, that we received the appropriate advice, and that we were provided with the necessary support for the efficient implementation of the recommendations. We didn't need perfection, we needed pragmatic solutions for communication issues in a complex multinational structure.
former CEO Infineon Technologies AG
cetacea not only provided internal and external communications support for our change process, but also played a key role in driving it forward. Their on-site presence at our premises facilitated constant, direct, and intensive exchange with managers and employees. The work of cetacea was very important for the success of our transformation.
Dr. Bernd Ruppert,
former CEO NextiraOne Deutschland GmbH
cetacea has an eye for the details that are often overlooked while also approaching the process with a strategic view of the overall picture. With their specialized expertise in special situations, cetacea has helped us make employees aware of the urgency of the situation. It was important that managers and employees understand why we make which decisions and how they can contribute to the success of the project in their day-to-day work. Without cetacea, we might have somewhat underestimated the importance of communication.
former CEO Versatel AG
Their strategic understanding, analytical rigor, innovative power in conceptualization, and comprehensive competence in execution convinced us from the very beginning. cetacea has been our partner since the development of our brand in the early stages, and since then they have consistently delivered exceptional performance in various projects.
Dr. Harald Linné,
Managing Partner Atreus GmbH
What sets cetacea apart is not only their principled focus on content, from which the means are consistently derived, but also their high familiarity with the structural patterns and processes in globally operating corporations.
