Transparency creates value

We achieve our corporate goals through a sense of responsibility towards each customer, adherence to deadlines and the highest quality. Education and training are right at the top of our agenda - we always keep up to date with the latest developments in products and processes. We meet industry and branch-specific changes with new, innovative approaches so that they will stay ahead in the future.


Through technology and market studies, we provide insights into strategically relevant information that create market-oriented problem awareness. By evaluating and discussing trends, risks and strategic options for action, we can make a significant contribution to understanding the industry and thus create a basis for well-founded strategic decisions.


With the Lean.IQ marketplace, we bring method and technology knowledge together in specific concepts. In doing so, we focus on maximum transparency in order to be able to design your innovations and control your growth in a targeted manner. And if there is one thing in more than 15 years of experience, it is the need to never be static despite consistency.



Experience and quality

Lean.IQ paves the way for smart, sustainable solutions in all areas. Start aligning your operational value creation systems entirely with your customers and future challenges. One key to this are networked products and services that make people's work easier and conserve natural resources. As part of the project work, it is important to look for and find the most efficient ways to develop the most suitable and sustainable solutions.


Sustainability is an opportunity and a driving force for innovations or the starting point for dynamic changes in companies. In order to develop truly sustainable solutions, we pursue an open innovation approach. We specifically involve technology partners in order to have new knowledge available for every challenge. In this way, we can already integrate sustainability issues in the innovation process of smart product-service systems in every project.
