ONE ILF Approach


ONE ILF Approach

In the past deca­de the engi­nee­ring ser­vices mar­ket has under­go­ne gre­at chan­ges. In the past, ILF’s cli­ents wan­ted to recei­ve engi­nee­ring ser­vices from ILF’s offices in cen­tral Euro­pe, but now deman­ds have chan­ged signi­fi­cant­ly. Today, inter­na­tio­nal cli­ents request clo­se coope­ra­ti­on with their engi­nee­ring part­ner on site, which means that engi­neers need to be based wit­hin rea­son­ab­le pro­xi­mi­ty of the cli­ent. The­re is also demand for local labo­rers to be trai­ned and for jobs to be given to them ins­tead of brin­ging in out­side labo­rers. At the same time, ILF’s cli­ents also expect that inter­na­tio­nal expe­ri­ence and exper­ti­se is used.

ILF meets the chan­ging needs of its cli­ents through the intro­duc­tion of a com­pre­hen­si­ve, group-wide approach ter­med ONE ILF.

ONE ILF is based on the con­vic­tion that making use of all of the com­pe­ten­ci­es and capa­ci­ties that are avail­ab­le in the com­pa­nies of the ILF Group and opti­mi­zing the inter­nal coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween the com­pa­nies maxi­mi­zes bene­fits for ILF’s clients.

The ONE ILF approach inclu­des stan­dar­di­zing ILF’s legal struc­tures, intro­du­cing a new func­tio­n­al orga­niz­a­ti­on, pro­mo­ting a cul­tu­re of inter­nal coope­ra­ti­on, and focu­sing on the brand ILF.


Pos­si­ble roles of an ILF com­pa­ny wit­hin the func­tio­n­al organization

Functional Organization

In the new func­tio­n­al orga­niz­a­ti­on, all com­pa­nies of the ILF Group are assi­gned one or more of the fol­lowing roles depen­ding on their respec­ti­ve com­pe­ten­ci­es and capa­ci­ties: Regio­nal Cen­ter, Cen­ter of Excel­lence, or Engi­nee­ring Center.

Regio­nal Cen­ter is a com­pa­ny of the ILF Group that is respon­si­ble for a spe­ci­fic coun­try or regi­on and for defi­ned busi­ness are­as. The Regio­nal Cen­ter is in char­ge of deve­lo­ping a defi­ned mar­ket by iden­ti­fy­ing, acqui­ring, and exe­cu­ting pro­jects. Natu­ral­ly it is essen­ti­al to pro­vi­de clo­se sup­port to the cli­ents on site. Regio­nal Cen­ters also deve­lop their own capa­ci­ties and com­pe­ten­ci­es and use them to exe­cu­te projects.

Cen­ter of Excel­lence is a com­pa­ny of the ILF Group that is respon­si­ble for one or more busi­ness are­as. The­se com­pa­nies have key point peop­le or indus­try experts in that busi­ness area. Cen­ters of Excel­lence sup­port Regio­nal Cen­ters and offer them know­ledge and exper­ti­se. A Cen­ter of Excel­lence is also encou­ra­ged to pur­sue and work on its own pro­jects, but should always coor­di­na­te its acti­vi­ties with the respec­ti­ve Regio­nal Center.

Engi­nee­ring Cen­ters help to incre­a­se the Regio­nal Cen­ters’ com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness by working on lar­ger ser­vice packa­ges for indi­vi­du­al Regio­nal Cen­ters and ensu­ring cost effi­ci­en­cy and high qua­li­ty work. This role is only assi­gned to com­pa­nies when requi­re­ments such as a sus­tainab­le low cost struc­tu­re are met and when the employees have suf­fi­ci­ent expe­ri­ence and capacities.

Effec­ti­ve coor­di­na­ti­on and con­sul­ta­ti­on bet­ween the com­pa­nies of the ILF Group is nee­ded for them to work tog­e­ther effi­ci­ent­ly and smooth­ly. The Group Direc­tors in the four main busi­ness are­as coor­di­na­te the coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween the ILF companies.

Culture of Cooperation

Even the best orga­niz­a­ti­on will not func­tion pro­per­ly if the­re is no wil­ling­ness to coope­ra­te. Becau­se of this rea­li­ty, ILF’s manage­ment pur­po­se­ful­ly cul­ti­va­tes a cul­tu­re of cooperation.

The imple­men­ta­ti­on of dif­fe­rent initia­ti­ves and their resul­ting posi­ti­ve effects fos­ter a cul­tu­re of coope­ra­ti­on among the com­pa­nies of the ILF Group.

ILF’s values form a solid foun­da­ti­on on which to base the cul­tu­re of cooperation.
