SMEs

We offer a broad range of specialised services to successful small and medium enterprises. We get a real kick out of this type of work as it typically involves helping entrepreneur-led businesses stabilise, evolve and thrive. We also support great family businesses by getting them ready for the next generation.

Here's how we do it.

Strategic Planning Process

Strategic Planning Process

At a certain point in the evolution of small to medium-sized businesses, it becomes necessary to create a longer-term view (3 to 5 years). We expose your management team to the strategic planning process, develop longer-term objectives and an agreed control and review process to deliver the changes, supported by appropriate behaviours. Your people are coached for understanding and application throughout the process.

Operational Excellence & Lean Support

  • Process redesign and process excellence
  • Cost reductions and efficiencies gains
  • Visual management systems and audit
  • Capability building through training and on the job coaching
  • Strategy deployment & performance management
