Date: January 14, 2022 – Messages

With the support of Managermagazin and under the patronage of former German President, Christian, the best medium-sized business consultants are selected each year. GÖK competes in the second size category of the competition and was able to qualify for the eighth time in a row.

“Of course, it’s an honor to be recognized for achievements in the consulting market in such a sustained way,” says Stefan Drauschke, MD, managing partner of the company.

“We came very close to the top 3 places this year, which shows we are on the right track,” adds Dipl.-Ing. Ulrich Pieper. “Our positioning as an industry specialist and the quasi-family structure of our company gives us many advantages, including in competition with the large consulting firms, which leads to the fact that some of the so-called Big Five have entered into cooperations with us.” Ulrich Pieper is also the managing partner of GÖK Consulting GmbH.

As recently as 2020, GÖK was named the best consulting firm in the healthcare segment by Wirtschaftswoche.

Worldwide, more than a million companies of various sizes and from various industries are certified according to DIN ISO 9001, but in the consulting industry we are surprisingly the exception.

GÖK has been the leading consulting company in the German-speaking healthcare sector for 30 years. ”We are proud of this long and successful company history”, emphasizes Dr. Stefan Drauschke, Managing Partner, ”however, we also feel an extraordinary responsibility for transformation in the industry”. From regional healthcare providers to university hospitals, executives rely on our know-how and expertise in the reorganization, digitization, turn-a-round, and change. An effective quality management system is indispensable for us to bundle the complex requirements and lead our customers to success. “It is important to be able to react flexibly and quickly to changes and wishes from customers and markets, and this is only possible if we ourselves are excellently organized.”

”This surprises us, but it is a fact”, adds Mr. Guntram Jackisch, Manager and Quality Management representative of the company.

In addition to providing an up-to-date data base on resource consumption in hospitals, this forum addresses how reduction targets and budgetary incentives encourage entrepreneurial solutions and what healthcare can learn from grassroots movements like Fridays for Future.
