Regional vs. global sourcing: Which is the logistics of the future? An outlook with Dr Stefan Fringss
Casting from China, assembly in Eastern Europe: in the course of globalisation, the German economy strived for international business relations for a long time. Factor cost differences had to be exploited. Local sourcing, on the other hand, seemed to be on the decline. Until pandemics and lockdowns cut supply chains, a hurricane hit Texas and a freighter got stuck in the Suez Canal. Then it became all the more clear how vulnerable - and also dependent - Germany's industry is on certain basic materials. What's more, ESG requirements and climate targets are forcing industry to rethink its supply chains more than ever. Long transport routes and international business relationships with "best cost countries" are increasingly being questioned. What will the logistics of the future look like - have to look like? How can the German economy circumvent raw material shortages and fragile supply chains? Where is the innovation potential of the future? And: Will steeple sourcing become a trend again? An outlook with Dr Stefan Frings, partner at enomyc. Lern more!
Future CFO: What does it take? How is the role of CFOs changing and why? Interview with Markus Oberndorfer
Chief financial officers - their role is currently changing more rapidly than ever. New tools, such as digital transformation, but also new challenges, such as cyber attacks, require additional skills and an expanded repertoire. What will the CFOs of the future be like? What qualities, what knowledge are particularly in demand for the job? And does it perhaps even make sense - with all these additional tasks they have to fulfil - to split their role? What responsibility CEOs and companies also bear in shaping the role of CFOs: Markus Oberndorfer, Director at enomyc, talks about this in the current interview. Read the full article here.
From dealer contract to agency model: Why car dealers don't lose out Interview with Jan Brandt, Expert for Turnaround and New Business Models
Material shortages, delivery stoppages, rising energy costs. Sustainability targets, digitalisation and electromobility: the automotive sector is under pressure to change more than any other. It is being forced to transform, reinvent itself, and question tried and tested network structures, contracts and distribution systems. And it is doing so. New business models are entering the market. Today we look at one of them, which is not so new, but which is currently being deployed with force: the agency model. Much discussed, much criticised, but also adopted. Why is it so? Is it promising? What is its interest? What is in it? What are the challenges facing the commercial relationships that have been established for decades between manufacturers and retailers? And can the agency model be profitable for manufacturers, retailers and end consumers? An interview with Jan Brandt, interim manager and expert in business turnaround and new business models.

Real estate: The need for advice will continue to rise Interview with Matias Otto, Partner and Head of Real Estate at enomyc
In the real estate sector, there seemed to be only one direction in recent years: upwards, and very strongly. But the Corona, the war in Ukraine and the resulting supply chain problems have put a stop to this boom, and materials and capacity have become a scarce commodity. How will things develop? What developments will shape the market in the coming years? And how will this change the consulting needs of companies? We asked Matias Otto about this. Since 2021, he has been responsible for the real estate sector at enomyc as a partner. His focus is on land and real estate transactions, with numerous interfaces to real estate-related advisory mandates and in particular to the distressed M&A area. Read more about enomyc!
