Lufthansa Technik's restructuring plans for its administration take
on concrete form
Lufthansa Technik AG intends an extensive reorganization of its
administrative structures and processes. The planned changes are part
of the Lufthansa Group's program for the future, SCORE.

optimized processes there, and now we intend similar improvements in
administration," said August Wilhelm Henningsen, Chairman of the
Executive Board of Lufthansa Technik. "Modern, efficient
administration is an important condition for the future international
growth of Lufthansa Technik AG."
Since the spring of 2012, nearly 200 experts from all areas of
Lufthansa Technik have been involved in a SCORE project called
NETwork in which all structures and processes were critically
assessed. Numerous proposals for improving processes were tested for
feasibility. The result is an extensive package of more than 200
individual measures, each with the goal of organizing administration
more efficiently and responding more effectively to customer needs.

activities will be bundled in competence centers, shared services

The changes in administration in Germany will be effected by the year
2015. 650 positions will likely be eliminated. This reorganization
will be implemented in a socially responsible manner.

offered on a voluntary basis. In addition, positions that become
vacant through natural attrition will not be filled.

about 20 percent.
