Jens Werner

Founder & President

I am fascinated by two things in particular: companies and their people in transition, and everything that is new.

As a Tough Thinking expert, I excel in my creative-cognitive approach and my intuition for the possibilities that will help move companies forward in these fast-moving, disruptive days.

All decisions around forward-looking crisis management, strategy development and deployment – choosing the right breakthrough projects, capabilities, structure, culture, business and innovation ecosystems, management tools and leadership – are my topics for Owners, CEOs, BoDs and Investors.

As a Tough Thinking expert, I am specialized in implementing agile action programs and immediate measures during future-workshops – usually with robust results within 12 weeks. In doing so, it is important to me to involve the employees from the top-down and to challenge the executives from the bottom-up.

My track record to date: Various improvement and transformation projects in 28 countries with a total of 30,000 people involved and $250M in improvements and EBIT secured. Established global R&D centers of competence and innovation ecosystems (including start-up situations) involving sales, engineering, manufacturing, customers, suppliers, competition and universities. Significant budget savings, standardization and improved time-to-market. Technology integration and process improvements in merger situations. Improve customer/investor programs in solutions business, increase customer satisfaction by incorporating sales and engineering. 4,900+ followers on LinkedIn.

Get in touch with me. I am looking forward to it.
