Tactical Change Programs

Many organisations are more tentative in their approach to adopting the disciplines of Operational Excellence and as a result engage us to pilot or demonstrate the benefits of these disciplines by way of some limited, tactical interventions. Equally they may have some form of operational excellence capability internally and may simply require some additional resources or have a need for a deeper level of experience & expertise to develop and mentor their internal resources.

Scope & Timescale:

A typical tactical intervention program lasts 3-4 months but some can run up to 12 months.

The variety of project is quite large and the following examples are representative:
