Diagnose the potential
  • Would you like to know if your company can make a "leap forward"?
  • Can your people do better and do you use the potential of your organization properly?
  • Are you facing problems and see that the situation needs to change but you don't know where to start or you would like to verify your own hypotheses?


We suggest a methodical approach to find the answers to the above questions - the GEM probe. During the diagnosis we will look at key elements such as: key business processes, operational rhythm, effectiveness of implementation mechanisms, availability and use of data, roles and responsibilities, as well as we will check the level of commitment and motivation.

 

Through interviews and observations, we will work together to set hypotheses and identify obstacles to your company's potential. We will identify the causes of inefficiencies, select objectives and prepare recommendations for optimization activities in form of ACTION PLAN.

Thanks to the GEM probe, you will receive solid material to make a conscious decision regarding next steps.

 

Our experience shows that a 20% increase in efficiency is within reach. Our common goal will be to reach for more.

 

Ambitious goals

You are a conscious leader, carefully observing increasingly complex business environment with strong belief in further opportunities. You are aware that there is always a place for improvement and more effective performance. The truth is that the key success factor is to set goals with actual influence on business reality.  Tens of goals are defined without deep analysis. Leaders as well as employees focus only on getting them done. Their efforts are in vain with neither significant positive change nor expected results achieved. Our mission is to help our customers translate the vision into ambitious goals that will bring high, feasible and expected results.

Strategic change management

You are aware that your company needs to go ahead, increase productivity, revise costs or income level or even requires restructuring.

If you can notice not only current tasks but also look into the future, we offer you to create it together. Strategic changes, change management and most of all sustainable results are our core competences. From public transport, financial institutions, energy industries, furniture production and sales to construction industries the implementation of organizational culture is our daily business for over 16 years.

Transformation of Inquiries and complaints process
Transformation of Inquiries and complaints process

Customer challenge

Total response time essential for customer’s complaint lead to discussion on: quality of sales and service processes, risk of additional operational costs, it architecture that supports above mentioned process, number of complaints and consequently process effectiveness, managing total amount of human resources required for proper process service. Without process attitude and lack of data the company focused only on eliminating the effects of a business problem rather than on the actual causes.

 

GEM approach

Our consultants were asked to diagnose the current state and provide recommendations including quick, easy to implement changes and process solutions.  The key element was to build and internal process management team, strengthen its expertise (process data analysis, prioritization of optimization initiatives, work progress monitoring, conducting periodic process reviews).

Within a project we delivered following final products: list of planned and initiated optimization initiatives, dashboard designed to support process management, new operational rhythm of process reviews.

As a result over 20 changes were implemented on short notice, process goals were raised and a new 50% productivity increase plan was defined.

Management transformation
Management transformation

Customer challenge

The Owners of a large private company (who are not in the Management Board) lost their confidence in their management team due to systematically deteriorating financial situation and loss of market share. Engaging new employees or hiring external companies did not succeed. Moreover, reliable assessment of current situation as well as planning and implementation of necessary changes was impossible due to significant competence and experience gap.

 

GEM approach

We began our consultancy with the analysis of competence gap among Management Board direct reports by engaging them in detailed analysis of current state and the definition of key transformation projects. Then we provided temporary competence replacement and set off recruitment processes or provided support for managers in defining and leading transformation projects. In the next step we designed duty transfer and onboarding for new managers. 

Because of the scale of changes GEM senior consultants, analyst and experts key role was to supervise recruitment changes.

First project phase and full operational control gained by new Management and Supervisory Board occurred within 24 months.

Product portfolio optimization
Product portfolio optimization

Customer challenge

Our customer struggled with many problems such as extensive product portfolio and limited place on the expositions. Product portfolio management was focused mainly on introducing new products. Decisions on product withdrawal were very difficult due to no specific criteria that should be taken into consideration.

 

GEM approach

Our detailed analysis indicated lack of clearly defined roles and responsibilities as well as core competences essential to make decisions either on product implementation or withdrawal. These decisions were made in a very unstructured way, engaging people responsible for different business areas. We designed and engaged our customer in the implementation of numerous solutions.

First of all, our consultants facilitated workshops with the representatives of business functions engaged in product portfolio management process. As a result, we managed to redefine roles and responsibilities as well as specified key processes. Then, basing on conducted market research and analysis of available sales data we focused on structuring product portfolio. Finally, we designed an analytic tool supporting process of making key product decisions.

Customer challenge

Product portfolio management was based only on the opinions of particular employees and pression from production teams (stocks, resources engaged etc.) regardless of product life phase or current sales results.

 

GEM approach

After collecting essential data, we made detailed analysis of product life cycle and set phases specific for particular products. Then we compared the current state of products with defined benchmarks and developed additional indicators and measures pertaining to product condition and sales results. It all helped our customer to make further decisions on products future such as product development, further monitoring or withdrawal. Our personalized solution was included in a fully automated tool.

 

After implementation our customer was able to do regular reviews and analysis of product portfolio within internal resources.

 

Sales network development strategy
Sales network development strategy

Customer challenge

Existing retail network resulted from single decisions with no common denominator. The company did not have any standards within location, sales floor, profitability of stores, however at the same time was interested in new investments.

 

GEM approach

We offered our customer a multi-element solution. First of all, it was essential to build internal competences within geolocalisation analysis and economic evaluation of investment projects, then we also had to implement operational rhythm.

Another scope of our support was focused on active analysis, designing geolocalisation model that would indicate the potential of local markets in all polish cities and providing target standards for stores depending on the identified potential of the market.

Finally, we developed a complex strategy for sales network development including plan of new openings within 7 years. 

Our strategic goal set together with our customer was to achieve 22% increase of income from sales with return on investment within 5 years. 

                                                                                                                                                           

Implementation of document management system
Implementation of document management system

Customer challenge

Manual invoice workflow in a decentralized structure with numerous process wastes identified (e.g. time consuming and incorrect descriptions, delayed payments, incorrect cost accounting).

 

GEM approach

After detailed analysis of manual document and invoices workflow processes we provided a business case for optimization project. Then together with customer's project team we defined detailed business requirements for future system, identified all processes and drew maps (electronic document workflow, starting with registration and scanning of particular document, through annotation, approval, initial accounting control and transferring to existing accounting system), designed mock-ups presenting expected frontends of tailored system. We supported our customer in finding the external system supplier. Our consultants provided regular coaching for project leader. Designing procedures and supervision over testing process of new system were one of the key success factors.

Implemented system was dedicated for 9 000 users and 160 000 cases per year (including over 56 000 invoices), received either in traditional paper way or via email. Implementation efficiency was appreciated not only by our customer but also by the external supplier.
