E0601 Adding Consultancy to Operations

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

The objective of this project was to consider ways the client could enter the consultancy business and leverage assets to create a larger and stronger overall business that was both more diversified and consequently more secure. Consultancy as a diversification strategy would help to protect the business in the event of any downturn in the volume or profitability of the core business. Secondly it would help to make better and more profitable use of the physical and/or intellectual assets already in the company. These assets included people with their expertise, experience and skills, plant and equipment, development and testing facilities, raw material knowledge and supply, networks within the suppliers and users of equipment, and international knowledge, experience and presence.
