"For us, it is especially important that, with SOLYP3, we can now also take into account qualitative data, hence enabling a holistic view of strategic business areas."
~ Christian Schreyer, former Head of Corporate Strategy and Transport Market, Deutsche Bahn AG
Deutsche Bahn AG consists of three divisions (Passenger Transport, Transport & Logistics, and Infrastructure & Services), which are divided into ten business units (including long-distance, regional, and urban transport, logistics, energy, and services). Since 2000, Deutsche Bahn regularly undergoes a "strategic management process" (SMP) which provides a framework for developing strategies for all business units and functional areas in a systematic fashion. Managed centrally by the group's development division, this process ensures a consistent group strategy across all business units.
