Over 15 years we’ve built a personal brand in the marketplace. At the end of the day, it’s all about proving what we do well and how we do it. Through our publications, our presentations at conferences/seminars and the specialist networks that we contribute to, we can demonstrate our capabilities in a huge range of sectors.
We have conversations with our clients about creating improvement; we don’t create “decks” of slides every time we want to share an idea with them.
There aren’t enough hours in the day to seek perfection; we can only afford “excellence”. We don’t have back offices full of analysts to crunch numbers to the nth degree and, frankly, how much value does it serve?
We have to operate lean, value-adding processes. Every single activity we do on an assignment for a client adds value and moves things on. There’s no time for “meetings about meetings”.
We take responsibility for our own personal development; we have to keep up-to-date and we have to invest in our capabilities. Every assignment is a learning opportunity with knock-on benefits for the next client.
We are organised around one simple dimension: our clients. There’s no Head Office, or Practice Teams, or Sector Groups and not even any organisation structures to get in the way. All our time can be devoted to clients.
We don’t have expensive overheads to maintain and, by working with a team of associates and partners, we don’t have to worry about “consultant utilisation”. There are no benches full of consultants who have to be earning fees and who end up on assignments for which they aren’t qualified, just to get their “utilisation” up. So, while we don’t claim to have the lowest fee rates, you’re certainly not paying for the inefficiencies or the egos you’ll find in bigger consultancies.
Right here we've got something you are gonna love

Construction projects are not inherently complicated, however because of the challenges encountered during execution they can become complex. This is due to the project not being set up to handle changes in design, availability of resources, materials, and information. As a result it is difficult to maintain an up to date work plan and the current plan rarely reflects the actual sequence in which tasks are completed. Consequently, the majority of construction tasks that are completed are based on improvisation by the hands on operators. This makes managing activities by setting and following priorities very difficult.. Read More
The Lean manufacturing approach is based on finding inefficiencies and removing wasteful steps that don't add value to the end product. There's no need to reduce quality with lean manufacturing – the cuts are a result of finding better, more efficient ways of accomplishing the same tasks. To find the efficiencies, lean manufacturing adopts a customer-value focus, asking "What is the customer willing to pay for?" Customers want value, and they'll pay only if you can meet their needs. They shouldn't pay for defects, or for the extra cost of having large inventories. In other words, they shouldn't pay for your waste. Read More
