Our Solution

Formal assessment of entire company

A formal assessment on the entire business was conducted to identify areas of risk, opportunities and improvement. We interviewed all personnel, held workshops and on the ground reviews to see the business for what it was. We collaborated with employees to share risks exposure, inefficiencies identified and formulated solutions to address them. 

Created clear mission, vision, values, to grow the business

Created clear mission, vision, values, with strategies to grow the merged Divisions in a workshop forum with the Head Office team. Restructuring the Divisions required some redundancies and hiring of high skilled employees and Managers. Created process maps and documented Standard Operating Manuals to standardise processes within the group.
