Was dich erwartet

As a global consulting partnership in more than 40 countries, our people make us who we are. We’re individuals with different passions and strengths who take as much joy in the work we do as from those we work with. Over the years we’ve fostered a culture in which we are united by shared values – passion, solidarity, generosity, curiosity, and boldness – and these come alive in the work we do and how we do it. 

Together, we know our people are our difference – for our clients, our colleagues, and our communities. That’s why we take pride in being individual and inclusive and create a place where everyone can bring their full self to work. 

The Product Excellence and Renewal Lab (PERLab) fuses world-class product design with Kearney's operational expertise to transform product portfolios. With a deep knowledge of consumer insights and design, PERLab improves profits, reduces complexity and costs, streamlines the supply chain, and helps companies achieve their sustainability goals. In partnership with TEAMS Design, renowned for its expertise in product design, user experience, and industrial design, PERLab tears down products, addresses pain points within the manufacturing and supply chain process, and unlocks new ways to improve margins and operational efficiencies in every stage of the product life cycle.
