The task of a Platinion consultant, whilst working on a client project, is not just to contribute his own ideas but also to bring the know-how of the entire company Platinion to the table.
To achieve this, we foster the direct exchange of information and knowledge between our employees by providing appropriate platforms.
Additionally, the interdisciplinary experience and knowledge gained from our clients' projects is systematically prepared and distributed to our teams via a central knowledge pool–while strictly complying with the utmost confidentiality requirements of our clients.
This constantly increasing knowledge pool is an important basis for our professional consulting services and the continuous growth of our employees' expertise. This pool also encompasses access to the worldwide industry expertise of our parent company, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
To meet business demands, Platinion is internally organized by industries. Even within related industries, such as banking and insurance, the differences in specific requirements and IT characteristics are often significant and must at all cost be considered in the specific project work.
Our experience acquired while working within various industries, is continuously analyzed, processed, and shared within our practice groups. The collected knowledge is enriched by the exchange and collaboration with the corresponding BCG practice groups–a further example for the close cooperation between Platinion and its parent company.
Since the beginning of 2012, we have been cooperating with the Chair for Energy Trading and Finance of the University of Duisburg-Essen to convey energy industry know-how to students through practical use cases and give them insight into our work. For example, we support seminar projects on issues from energy industry practice and present typical methods and work content in lectures.
