The Challenge of Improving Operational Efficiency

Different unplanned and potentially catastrophic business and economic events will create crisis situations that require time critical action to “stop the bleeding”, solve the underlying problem, develop a plan and implement the plan. Often, an experienced, independent professional can help regain control. However, in addition to crisis and turnaround situations, less dramatic business and managerial challenges can also occur as a result of implementing business plans, planned projects, continuous improvement or a discovery in the course of normal operations.

Both types of situations require an approach that addresses one or more of the dimensions that effect, or are affected by, a business activity - process, organization and information systems. Usually, complex challenges are a combination of these dimensions and ignoring one or more of them usually results in incomplete solutions that, in spite of how well the parts that were addressed are performed, the solution as a whole often fails. Whether implementing cost reductions, downsizings or reorganizations to overcome temporary challenges or achieving high benefit outcomes for normal operations, an experienced professional can add good value and help you focus on all relevant dimensions of the challenge. Our service offerings are listed by dimension.
