What we do
We partner with our clients to create real value, generating significant improvements in performance, processes, and behaviours across the business. With our expertise and industry experience, we can help you to transform your business , to improve its core management processes or, if in distress, to turnaround its performance.
We work with your team at all stages of the journey
Identifying the root causes of the issues stopping you from realising your objectives.
Developing a plan to deliver a real solution, that defines what needs doing and how is to be done, ensuring that it focuses on real issues rather than symptoms, unlocking your full potential.
Making it happen, using our experience and expertise applying rigorous programme management, whilst creating the internal capability so the improvements stick.
Our focus is the creation and delivery of real value at pace.
Businesses are facing the continuous challenge of remaining competitive in a fast-changing world. Only those businesses capable of adapting and responding quickly and effectively to changes will thrive. Transformation is no longer a choice; it is a must.
Combining our experience and expertise of how businesses work, we work with your team to deliver significant and robust transformation that creates real value, unlocking the full potential of your business.
Business Growth & performance
Changing market and customer expectations are placing ever increasing demands on the business and your people to constantly improve growth, customer satisfaction, efficiencies and develop new products and services.
We believe that performance is driven through adopting the right operating model and anganging peropleat every level of your company. We work with your team, challenging the status quo to deliver a step-change in business performance through improved capabilities and changed behaviours, creating high performance teams.
Through our experience, we know what it takes to stabilise a business in distress and what pragmatic actions quickly preserve value.
Our experience and skills in delivering turnarounds allows us to act quickly and effectively, minimising your losses whilst diminishing risks.
Our clients’ needs vary from immediate and radical intervention to expert support. Working shoulder to shoulder with the management team, investors and other professionals, we rapidly identify and execute what needs to be done to make an impact at pace.
Integrated business planning and control
Frequently, businesses planning is disjointed, siloed and supported by spreadsheets and systems that do not communicate or use the same data. The outcome is complexity, excessive cost, high inventory and failure to deliver on time.
We have a solid track record of helping clients to improve their planning processes and optimise their inventory:
Implementing Sales Inventory Operations Planning (SIOP), applying our Rapid Deployment methodology moving within weeks from concept to implementation.
Using our VIOS™ method to quickly visualise and model inventory, addressing the root causes to release cash through process & policy improvements in weeks not months.
due diligence mergers & Acquisitions
During deals investors need to quickly identify and quantify key opportunities and risks. Our Deep Dive Operational Due Diligence gives our clients the information to confidently value current and future operational improvements accordingly and then execute at pace to deliver value creation.
From Private Equity and large Corporations to owner managed businesses we consistently provide the agile, pragmatic and hands-on expertise throughout the investment life cycle required for successful evaluation, acquisition, value creation, integration and deal execution
Projects and programmes go wrong! This can be traced to some consistent themes: lack of clarity of objectives; non-realistic planning; risks are not managed; key people are not engaged; the people aren’t up to the job; the benefits are not clear; and people do not know “what’s in it for me?”.
Our approach to programme management addresses these themes with a focus on the outcomes expected, using a right to left “goal directed” approach supported by robust governance.
If you are concerned about a programme, launching major transformation or setting up a new programme we will help ensure its success.
supply chain optimisation
Your supply chain can enhance or destroy value. At a strategic level it is important to clearly understanding what your business needs to do well and what external suppliers can provide. Once this is understood value creation can be optimised.
We transform end to end supply chains – Strategic Supply Chain Design, Make versus Buy, internal operations improvement, strategic sourcing, supplier relationships and risk management to maximise value.
