CJ Management Consulting & Interim Solutions, always the right address!
I am pleased to welcome you!
Are you looking for an interim manager in the area of COO, plant or production management? Do you want to optimise your processes and procedures or reduce your costs? Do you need support in the implementation of new business processes, lean production and development of your managers? Do you want to reposition your company for current and future challenges? Then I look forward to hearing from you! I will gladly support you on this way!
As Dipl.- Ing. (FH) Production Engineering with metalworker training and with more than 20 years of broad-based management experience in various companies of different sizes, from small medium-sized businesses to large corporations and various industries, I offer you solutions for all aspects of production, quickly and competently.
Vacancies are bridged by me as well as restructuring and change processes are carried out and advanced. The main focus is on lean production, internal logistics, value stream, production control and process optimisation. The quick familiarization with a task, leadership, team building and integration of the persons concerned play a central role for me. Especially helpful for the implementation of change processes with quick results are, besides my extensive experience as a manager, experience with private equity, transfers of businesses according to §613A and further training in the field of business psychology.
Change processes often cause uncertainty among the employees concerned, which in turn hinders the change process and impairs their performance. Depending on the degree of difficulty of the task, assessment expectations (fear) worsen the desired result. Conflicts are often the result; I can counteract this in a trained manner and achieve good results for you as a client even under difficult conditions.
Priorities: COO | plant management | production management
The market for interim management is currently growing significantly every year. The background is the increasing demand due to strongly changing markets, but also the lack of specialists and executives. Furthermore, interim management is an interesting alternative to permanent employment. Short-term availability and full flexibility are, in addition to the extensive experience of most interim managers, the main advantages of interim management.
Strengthening and development of management
Priorities: Coaching | Training
In the course of my practical work, I was always faced with difficult challenges. Changing tasks in different companies, business takeovers and far-reaching changes demanded new approaches and procedures from me. Rapidly changing conditions demand a high degree of flexibility and willingness to change from managers and employees.
Priorities: restructuring | change management
In order to be successful in the long run, constant changes are inevitable. Restructuring and change management is therefore increasingly common and necessary for all companies. Not only the technology and processes must be questioned, but also the managers and employees in your company play a decisive role.
Priorities: Concept | Coaching
Lean has many faces. Everyone understands something different. New buzzwords appear on the market almost daily. Lean often becomes complicated and incomprehensible and loses its connection to practice. Often it is old wine in new wineskins and the reference to the result is missing. Lean degenerates into an end in itself. Failed attempts to introduce it do the rest.
“Mr. Jordan was assigned as project manager for a site closure and corresponding product relocation from 01.01. to 30.06.2022. Mr. Jordan addressed the initial difficulties very quickly and in a structured manner and involved his colleagues in the processes in a motivated manner. Additional challenges, such as the localization of products to a sister plant in China, were implemented both confidently and professionally. I would like to emphasize the very good way in which colleagues who had to leave the company were dealt with. This approach ensured a great deal of understanding and calm in the process. Mr. Jordan also contributed his expertise in the area of production optimization to the realignment of the production lines.
I would like to thank Mr. Jordan for the very good cooperation and wish him all the best for the future.”
Mr. Jordan joined our company as interim location manager. As an up-and-coming manager, I appreciated his open and appreciative communication. He always supported me in my development and without losing sight of the company’s goals. I found his cooperative and binding leadership style very helpful and motivating. Open feedback as well as the support in fulfilling my tasks helped me to be successful and to develop successfully.
Not only professionally, but also as interim manager, Mr. Jordan was an enrichment for our location.
He understood how to bring together the different strengths, perspectives and interests of the younger and older employees and made sure that they understood each other as a team working towards a common goal.
I have fond memories of working with Mr. Jordan. Accordingly, I would like to recommend Mr. Jordan to others!
We got to know Mr. Jordan when we had a very challenging situation in the production of one of our subsidiary companies. Several management changes, production backlogs, difficult processes and far too many projects…the mood was tense and nerves were irritated.
Mr. Jordan was not deterred and accepted the order. In a very short time he was able to calm the mood as well as improve the overall situation. His clear and transparent manner, his ability to keep his eyes on the target even in a headwind and to take people on different levels along and convince them helped him in this. I like to think back on the cooperation. Mr. Jordan was an important pillar and confidant for me at that time”.
We/ I brought Mr. Jordan to one of our plants as interim site manager to support us there in the implementation of a challenging and ambitious project.
A special challenge for the Chance Management, different generational issues as well as a sensitive employee representation.
Due to his clear manner and binding way of working, Mr. Jordan quickly gained the trust of all parties involved in the process. The persistent pursuit of the goals, with the involvement of the employees of the site, as well as the constructive cooperation beyond the site, led to an improvement of the situation and the results within a very short time.
For this reason, we/I am very happy to recommend Mr. Jordan to others!
Mr. Jordan successfully supported me in my desire to take the next step in my career as a junior executive.
His open and appreciative manner was of particular importance to me and helped me a lot.
With his extensive experience as a manager and consultant, he was a good mentor who provided me with valuable support, background information and insights for my progress.
He helped me to better understand the application process and opened up new perspectives for my personal and professional development.
