Barkawi Management Consultants is an international consulting firm that focuses on supply chain management and after sales service. This Munich-based consultancy was founded in 1994 by Karim Barkawi. Today it has more than 200 employees and offices in Munich, Shanghai, Moscow, Atlanta and Vienna. The client portfolio of Barkawi Consulting includes global enterprises with logistically complex business models, such as BSH Bosch and Siemens Home Appliances, Coca Cola, Daimler, Lufthansa, Nokia Networks, Philips and many, many more.
Our distinct emphasis on supply chain management ensures you expertise and the right specialists. You won't find a one-size-fits-all approach or a bargain-bin mentality with us, because we are different: focused and specialized. That is what makes successful, modern management consultancy today.
The company's head office in Munich, with almost 100 consultants, is well chosen, because Germany is located at the heart of Europe and it is the gateway to Eurasia. Our Atlanta office manages our US business, which now also boasts almost 100 colleagues across the USA.
Our international and interdisciplinary consulting teams work together in varying constellations to fit the project and venue – every project has different demands on the team, tools and methods. That is why we design each project and put together every team individually, carefully tailored to the needs of the client and project. Sometimes chartered accountants and lawyers are added, sometimes physicists and mechanical engineers. Sometimes industry experts are required, while some projects benefit from experts in specific functional or product categories. Young consultants, experienced industry professionals, various educations and qualifications, nationalities and project backgrounds – we believe in the power of diversified perspectives!
One of the special things about Barkawi Management Consultants is the combination of strategic management consultancy and assistance in the operational execution of your project. Barkawi doesn't leave its clients alone with a pile of analyses and suggested improvements, we actively help realize and implement. The way we see things at Barkawi is that our consulting assignment isn't over until our concepts work in practice. And being entrepreneurs ourselves, we have proven many times already that consultants are also good business managers. We know what we are doing, because we have grown various start-ups from the ground up within the Barkawi Group, and nurtured them into thriving undertakings.
One of the keys to Barkawi's success is the quality of our staff. Many consulting firms work with large numbers of relatively inexperienced career starters – we don't! Barkawi places great value on maintaining a strong main block of experienced industry and consulting professionals. They enable us to speak the same language as and interact at eye level with our clients.
