Marketing
German term or phrase: Potenzialanalyse
Abgeleitet aus den Ergebnissen der vorangegangenen Analyse werden mittels der folgenden Potenzialanalyse die wesentlichen Optimierungsmöglichkeiten im Prozess der Vertragssteuerung sowie die Ansätze für einen technologieunterstützten Prozessablauf, erarbeitet und dargestellt.

I wonder about the word 'Potentialanalyse'. The sentence is from a marketing study. They are talking about the potential of cost benefits through new ways to control contract implementation.

Thanks in advance,
Ursula

Explanation:
I'd go for something like this:

"Based on the results of the previous analysis, the next step is to identify and present the major opportunities for optimisation arising from the contract management process, including proposals on how to support the process flow by way of technology, within the scope of a potential analysis."

HTH - best regards, Ralf

Your translation was very helpful. I had always associated potential analysis with a psychology test. This, and the way those business analysts write, had gotten to me.
Thank you very much,
