Less theory.


Less theory. More practice.

From doctor of engineering to high-ranking leader of industry:

Bernd Bohr began his professional career in 1983 at Robert Bosch GmbH. In the ten years from 2003, he was in charge of the company’s largest business area, the Automotive Group, with a staff of more than 170,000 and sales of 31 billion euros. Since leaving Bosch, Bohr, who is a passionate sailor, holds several positions in industry, including an appointment to the supervisory board of Daimler AG.

In his capacity as an independent consultant, however, Bernd Bohr also enables other companies to benefit from his extensive experience and knowledge of industry.

/ My Approach.

Good questions.


Good questions. Better answers.

Strategic decisions influence a company’s development for many years. This makes it all the more important, then, to ask the right questions when planning for the future – about the actual here-and-now reality, about possible future scenarios, about alternative strategies, and about the robustness of a strategy in the face of new approaches and responses of competitors – the very questions that have not been asked so far. The success of a strategy depends on many factors. One of the most common pitfalls is that of having overlooked some aspect that later proves to be relevant and important.

The form and content of the work we do together can be organized according to your requirements. The only hard-and-fast rule is that you will always be advised by Bernd Bohr personally.
