Plaut Management

The importance of adapting staff qualifications to continuous, ever-faster structural change is growing in companies. Globalisation, dynamic technological innovation or changed forms of work organisation are only a few of the key words here. As a result, there is an ever-increasing need for qualifications and individual competence. We at Plaut are taking up the subject which will dominate the future: "learning".

Focus on further education

We see a central factor in a positive attitude to learning within a company to maintain innovative power, competitiveness and performance achievements at a high level. Besides company planning and controlling as well as information technology it is the qualification of staff with which we contribute to the economic success of our customers.

Our range of qualifications accompanies you through the transformation and prepares people in your company for changes. At the right time, competently and comprehensively. In seminars, workshops, training or coaching sessions. And adapted precisely to your needs about the content of learning programs and exercises.

Our partnerships:

Leadership must be considered in a systemic context. A leader can only be successful if you consider the complexity of relationships and the reciprocal influences in their work.

Leadership means directing employees with their skills in a way that makes an optimal contribution to service delivery possible. The manager must succeed in winning over the employees. This is based on mutual appreciation and trust. Ultimately, the success depends exactly on it.

We offer the following seminars, among others:

  • Seminar Series Leadership
  • Conduct employee appraisals successfully
  • Cross-sectoral collaboration and communication
  • Problem-solving techniques
  • decision preparation
  • Effective design of meetings
  • Lead in projects
  • coaching

The business management is a central task in the company. Proper understanding of the numbers and suitable instruments create the necessary transparency. The heterogeneity of persons acting in a company makes cooperation difficult in some cases. Therefore, it is important to convey a holistic view.

Controlling today has a key role in the company. The image of the controller has thus changed considerably: it must be communicative, process current trends and topics and present them internally. His gaze is directed towards the future in the sense of strategic controlling. Thus, it creates an important function of early warning and contributes significantly to the competitiveness of the company. But because of all these requirements, he must also master the classic tools of the controller.

As the founder of the marginal cost accounting and the contribution margin calculation, Plaut has been working for more than 65 years both as an advisor and as a trainer in controlling. To point out contexts and to qualify them in practice is our principle.

We offer the following seminars, among others:

  • Plankosten (Part1 & Part2)
  • The controller as a business partner
  • Communication tasks for controllers
  • The controller as an internal consultant
  • Moderation and presentation for controllers
  • Effective reporting

In many cases, special features of communication are trained (e.g. sales rhetoric, presentation techniques). Unfortunately, however, many fields in which communication in day-to-day life appears daily often remain untouched. Meaningful qualification must not differentiate into hard and soft skills. We need both! While facts are taught in hard skills, soft skills are about personality development and behavioural changes. Combining both aspects in one qualification measure, the connections become clear to the participants and the acceptance increases.

We offer the following seminars, among others:

  • Personal communication training - rhetoric, presentation, moderation
  • Communication tasks for controllers
  • Appraisal interviews and performance appraisal
  • Effective design of meetings and workshops
  • Personal working and learning techniques
  • Argue & Negotiate
  • Convince with your voice

Project work is an important form of work that is indispensable in everyday business life. However important, there are still too many projects that are not well executed and transfer unnecessary tensions to the entire organization. The causes are manifold and can often be reduced to the point of lack of time. But this consideration falls short. The causes need to be analysed more closely.

Most projects do not fail because of a lack of dealing with facts or bad expertise, but because of problems of leadership, cooperation and communication, i.e. the so-called soft factors.

We offer the following seminars, among others:

  • Analysis & Project Evaluation
  • Successful project management - planning, control, control
  • Successfully implement large projects
  • Communication in the project
  • Design project / project completion
  • Project Marketing
  • Know-how transfer in the project
  • Qualification for project managers
  • Coaching - project manager, teams

Executives know the needs and wishes of their employees and know what qualifications they need. They create the necessary conditions for the transfer of learning outcomes and see it as a more integral part of their leadership role. This is the ideal - but the reality in business and public authorities often looks different.

The organizational framework does not make it easy for supervisors to accept their role in the qualification of employees and to fill them in a meaningful way. This can lead to a "leading by numbers", i.e. a style of leadership that focuses on deviations from actual and target figures and has only indirectly to do with humans. A dangerous consequence is that you care less about the high performers who can handle without support than the low performers. In this context, well-qualified staff must be supported, for example, by tasks in which they can contribute and develop their qualities.

However, when managers are actively involved in identifying the educational needs of their employees and selecting the appropriate training measures, this is only a first step. For training to be fit for purpose, employees need to be able to apply the newly acquired knowledge. Executives should also be demanding, work with staff on a realistic transfer plan, and support transfer by asking questions.

The project is the organizational form with which you bring important changes and innovations into the company. Usually even several projects must be pushed in parallel. That's why you want to make sure each project achieves its goals, meets its budget and time frame, and makes the best use of its resources.

Plaut offers you methods, processes and tools that have proven themselves in practice in our consulting and development projects on the three levels: Portfolio Management, (Multi-) project management and Project controlling.

We provide the following consulting services for the methodological, business management and organizational aspects of project management:

  • Concepts for cost-benefit-risk analysis, creation of business cases
  • Key figure formation, measurement and control of project progress
  • Realization of the project benefit (benefit collection)
