DB Management Consulting
As the partners of choice for in-house consultancy services at the Group, DB Management Consulting plays a crucial role in shaping the future of DB. Working hand in hand with our clients, we produce groundbreaking visions for the entire Group that tackle strategic and operational challenges, and we ensure that these ideas are put into practice. At present, two major fields of activity for our consultants are creating a comprehensive operational excellence programme, and participating in designing DB’s digital agenda.
Throughout the entire Group, the consultancy services that we offer to board members, business unit heads and their senior managers encompass the fields of general management, digitalization, marketing and sales, operations, supply chain management, mobility, transport and logistics, and infrastructure. Our expertise ranges from developing targets to the effective implementation of measures. In our role as in-house consultants, we have particular responsibility for ensuring the successful outcome of our solutions.
We are looking for dedicated team players who always enjoy dealing with new topics and people, who add their ideas for the future to ours, and who want to see DB thrive. Our services are in high demand, so we are constantly growing, and we are particularly interested in experienced consultants. Every year, we also invite 80 students from different courses of study to join us as interns and work on DB’s plans and strategies of tomorrow.
We serve as a starting point for people who may wish to progress to management positions. In this capacity, we can provide you with expert support in terms of professional and personal development at DB MC and within the wider Group. You will receive feedback on a regular basis, and your practice leader will discuss your strengths, development targets and career preferences with you. We run a wide range of excellent training programmes that cover issues such as workplace tools, soft skills and specialist knowledge. You will get to be part of different multi-faceted projects that directly involve board members, and you will be able to network with other people from throughout the company. If you wish to move within the Group, we will support your transfer to a line function with responsibility, e.g. via an interim management position.
