8 6 Five practice groups - one core philosophy Customize, not standardize. Our core philosophy is the guiding force behind our industry-specific Platform for Impact. Divided into five main practice groups, ESMT CS deploys specialty knowledge to achieve highly specific, deep organizational transformation. Each ESMT CS executive education program has its own distinctive signature and customized, original content. The reason is simple: no two companies, industries, business models or ecosystems are alike. And only the freshest, hard-hitting thinking and research can truly deliver real business impact. At the very heart of the ESMT CS Platform for Impact is our distinctive industry-oriented structure. Our five main practice groups provide a customized framework that allows our clients and consultants to collaborate with one another for greater relevance. The result is a set of fine-tuned educational programs that deliver high levels of value quickly and efficiently. Our industry-specific approach is made possible by an extraordinary faculty team with broad business expertise across a wide range of academic disciplines among them professionals with ample experience as senior managers in their field. But perhaps more importantly, all of them have grappled with the very same issues that you face on the front lines every day. They speak the industry language. And they instinctively understand how theory and research can be applied to industry practice to achieve maximum impact and value now.

10 8 Consumer Goods and Retail Head: Urs Müller Consumer goods and retail companies are confronted with rapid change, triggered by constantly changing consumer purchasing behaviors. Faced with competing alternatives, consumers base their purchasing decisions not only on quality, but also on image and brand perception. The resulting importance of brand equity pushes managers to focus on marketing and advertising an added expense in a sector already plagued by tight margins. At the same time, firms must contend with private label competition, possibly non-optimal supply chain management all in all a highly challenging business environment which ESMT CS addresses with in-depth executive education offerings. Financial Services Head: Jan U. Hagen Financial services providers are confronting the challenges of financial crisis, regulation, consolidation, vertical disintegration, and globalization in significant ways. To survive and thrive, they must successfully differentiate themselves through sustainable business models and shorter time to market for new products and services. ESMT CS delivers sophisticated executive education programs that help major international financial services firms to adapt to this radically changing environment and rise to their industry s new challenges.»esmt CS delivers a rare combination of academic and practical expertise.

12 10 Life Sciences Industries Head: Katharina Lange Life science companies must maintain a pipeline of innovative products and therapeutic options for increased revenue and growth, where fine-tuning R&D efforts and seeking lucrative collaborations are only part of a successful business strategy. In particular, life science companies have to pave their way in a tough regulatory environment. As market pressure leads to consolidation and disintermediation, adequate strategic answers on all levels are required. ESMT CS has worked with some of the world s most innovative pharmaceutical companies to achieve greater compliance, operational excellence, and strategic innovation for higher levels of performance. Technology-Based Industries Head: Martin Kupp Technology-based companies are driven by an everchanging set of innovations, products, and services. Taking on the role of a highly sophisticated market expert, they must constantly transform their organizations with cutting-edge, forward thinking that anticipates customer demands. At the same time, they must build a successful link between their own internal engineering culture with a market-oriented strategy that addresses customer needs. Through its own institutional knowledge and expert contacts, ESMT Customized Solutions has helped many of the world s best-known technology-based companies address these issues to achieve a competitive advantage in their industries. Telecommunication, Transport, Utilities Head: Christoph Burger Over the past two decades, the European communication, transportation, and utility sectors have been deregulated, unbundled, and redesigned. Under growing competition, industry players must now look beyond standard practices to find new business strategies that deliver immediate results. And they must raise productivity while changing business concepts. ESMT Customized Solutions offers companies insight and practical advice from thought leaders within each of these industries. With a proven set of strategies and practices, we help them thrive under growing regulatory and public scrutiny, as well as balance the reliability of supply and operational excellence.
13 11»TÜV Rheinland has been successfully working with ESMT CS as a provider of executive education. We took our partnership one step further by asking ESMT to design and run a strategy workshop for one of our businesses. We wanted well-thought-out yet tangible results not a typical consulting project where consultants tell management what to do, and where knowledge transfer is limited. ESMT CS helped our executives take a fresh look at their business, solve highly complex issues and, more importantly, develop a better understanding of the strategy formulation process. The strategy workshop is a great example of the ongoing collaboration between TÜV Rheinland and ESMT CS. It has had a profound impact on our management team.«ulrich Fietz, Member of the Executive Board, TÜV Rheinland Holding AG
