Benchmarking: Global Production Strategies
The final conference on the 28th of September in St.Gallen was the last get-together in the Consortium Benchmarking Global Production Strategies.
There, Prof. Dr. Thomas Friedli and Prof. Dr. Klaus Möller gave insights from research with their keynote speeches about global production 2022+ and best practices in financial leadership. Then, the five visits at Dätwyler, Festo, IMS:Gear, Schott and Kuka were summarized and discussed. At those visits, we have gathered a deeper understanding of their global production strategy approach and learned in their respective areas of excellence.
Afterwards at the final conference, the participants derived consequences for their own companies in a workshop-based session.
As a highlight, Prof. Dr. Kasra Ferdows – one of the most renown researchers in production management – joined us at the closing apéro.
Key insights and practioneers implications were aggregated in our publication «Globale Produktionsstrategien in der Praxis – Strategieformulierung und -implementierung» (Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftlichen Fabrikbetrieb 12/2022).
We would like to express our gratitude to all companies involved –the consortium partners, successful practices, and participants in our study – for their willingness to share insights, best practices, and discuss challenges.
