A brief introduction


I am a qualified expert in Mechanical and Process Engineering, specialising in Automotive Technology. My career to date has focused on the professional areas of establishing and securing operational capability based on standardisation and progressive excellence as well as coaching executives and teams at globally operating medium-sized companies. Most of my clients come from the automotive industry (Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen), the automotive supplier industry or medium-sized industrial production companies.

I now prefer to take on C-level interim management roles in the areas of COO, plant and production management, project management, development/engineering management and de-escalation. I mainly acquire such roles by contacting larger and globally operating medium-sized companies but I am also happy to discuss options with enterprises and groups of companies.

Operational Focus

  • Lean management and lean production with upstream standardisation and industrialisation
  • System-based project management and process optimisation
  • Gemba, “Hands-On in the Engine Room”; Kaizen/CIP/KVP
  • Operational HR structural development, coaching operational executives
  • De-escalation of supplier conflicts, plant relocation, security of supply
  • Technology development with accelerated cycles for series-production readiness

Jörg Tuschling - Interim Operations Manager

For almost 30 years I have been working with professional expertise and passion in the international operative technical management.

In 2016 I founded my company OES international GmbH and I have been supporting my clients as an Interim Operations Manager to master upcoming challenges with my expert knowledge since then.

The following mindset: “Success is best summed up in two words: DO IT.”

According to the original quote by J.W. von Goethe


My expertise and my many years of professional and life experience enable me to combine specialist and social competence at a high level and in perfect harmony. These skills are accompanied by a talent that I have developed over the years, namely my ability to act and make decisions based on my institution alongside facts, figures and data. My clients and colleagues consider me to be a pillar of strength as a senior manager who navigates through troubled waters with a trustworthy and exemplary approach, providing orientation, demonstrating feasible solutions and supporting their implementation.

OES stands for "Operational Excellence Solutions". My customers and business partners can rely on first-class operational solutions for the tasks entrusted to me.
