KPS CEO Dietmar Müller honored as ‘Best CEO in the Management Consultancy Industry’ for 2015

Award for game-changing innovations in management consulting
Dietmar Müller, Vorstand KPS (PresseBox) (Dortmund, ) The EuropeanCEO Award honors firms and individuals that have raised standards across their respective industries. They are the bar-raisers and market-leaders in their fields. The 2015 EuropeanCEO Award in the Management Consulting category goes to Dietmar Müller from KPS Consulting. As co-founder and managing partner of KPS, he has led large-scale implementations to success with proprietary methods for SAP-based transformations. Today, Müller is chairman of the KPS Executive Board and responsible for Finance & Operations.

KPS Consulting has a proprietary methodology that closes the gap between strategy, processes and IT. Corporate transformations working with the conventional “waterfall principle” can take years to complete – starting with strategic development and process optimization, going on to select a suitable software solution before finally actually completing implementation. By contrast, the process and implementation-oriented Rapid Transformation® method used for transformation projects at KPS can achieve turnaround times as low as 15 to 24 months, depending on the business set-up.

“For this special method, you need a basic understating of three different topics: the sector in question, the state-of-the-art processes driving the sector and the right software solution – including all of its hidden potential,” explains Müller. Under Müller’s watch, KPS made the early call to specialize in Fashion and Retail, and has since become market leader in these areas. “When we founded the firm at the turn of the millennium, our strategy was clear: we wanted to build a team of consultants that was not only able to define strategic goals, but was also competent in optimizing end-to-end processes and implementing IT systems,” Müller continues.

“Now that we have 700 experienced consultants and a strong sector focus, we have become the only consulting partner in the retail sector that can cover the entire omnichannel process spectrum – from classic merchandise management and e-commerce functionality to digitalization and personalized customer management.“

Dietmar Müller and his team were pioneers in the development of implementation-oriented management consulting and are leaders of the pack today with their long-standing experience and time-tested project methodology. The Best-CEO-of-the-Year-Award honors CEOs from across Europe in “EuropeanCEO” magazine, a publication informing readers on current activities, trends and developments in Europe’s business landscape and profiling leading executives and CEOs. For the past eight years, the aim of this award has been to honor outstanding businessmen and women.
