3PM - What is it?

No enterprise is 100% self-supplying all required services and materials. Every enterprise is forced to contract with 3rd parties, to position itself successfully on the market.

Employees, service providers, suppliers and customers, they all form the partner-portfolio of your company, in which contracts define all rights and duties between the partners. Professional development and maintenance of your partner-portfolio is the task and responsibility of the so-called partner management. A partner with own and separate status is called “3rd party”. Managing this business relation is 3rd Party Management, short 3PM.

3PM is required by all enterprises and professionalism in it is the key-factor for your success.

We refer to

Startups, working on their basic business strategies and the set-up of their business ventures.

Young enterprises, trying to establish themselves at the market and to grow.

Established enterprises, dealing with the today’s challenges of digitalization, automation, internationalization and innovation.

Strategic investors, searching and evaluating enterprises to potentially invest in.

Each group has to determine on required actions, concepts and roadmaps and develope them. Pragmatic approaches (best practice) are required to implement reliable and industry-grade processes and operations as preconditions to any successful business partnership. Comprehensive expertise is required to evaluate and qualify the reliability and quality of existing process and operations landscapes.
