cost saving ideas
cost savings identified
created to drive implementation
The Big Idea
Fast and massive cost reduction, as a matter of company survival: A global player in telecom equipment got under massive cost pressure from Chinese state-funded competitors. While large scale infrastructure tenders are sold on technology and cost, the board initiates a short-term, high-pressure program to identify 100m€+ cost savings. The COO and CPO get tasked to implement the program immediately.
Blueprint and Roadmap
We conducted multiple workshops with all category teams to identify and evaluate cost saving ideas. We worked with cross-functional teams to get the ideas ready for implementation.
- 100m€ cost savings opportunities identified and presented to the Board for approval.
