Operational strategy is much more than deciding what you are going to do in your operational footprint for the next couple of years. Operational strategy is about the business model and how you are going to design your operational footprint, business model and supply chain to deliver the future commercial strategy. It is a deep and complex piece of work that requires patience, research, thought and guidance if it is to be done properly and deliver the future growth of the business. It is a time where directors and senior managers are tested to the limits of their knowledge and capability and is a stressful time for people not used to carrying out this type of process.
Deep Analysis Frameworks
Finidhyn has a trademarked analysis framework developed out of 20 years of Research and Development. At its heart is a comprehensive operational strategy and structural analysis framework designed to identify the future needs of the business and the opportunities available. This analysis framework sets the foundations of any road-map in companies looking to transform themselves.
Mergers & Aquisition Support
Finidhyn® Has a great deal of experience dealing with Mergers & Acquisitions and the delivery of synergies. In the past we have specialised in post-merger and acquisition support, but more recently we have moved into pre-merger and acquisition support. The reason for this is to prevent many of the costly mistakes that occur due to the miscalculation of implementation time frames and costs and the potential over-estimation of Synergies. Sometimes we are able to add substantially to the synergy pot through our understanding of new business models and performance management techniques. All of our expertise seeks to keep investors happy by delivering synergies to plan, whilst avoiding unnecessary costs through good delivery methodologies.
Supply Chain Optimisation
Supply Chain is, at its heart, maths. A deep understanding of the maths involved allows us to develop and design supply chains that are able to deliver the required service levels at the right price point in organisations across the globe. All too often, Supply Chain is isolated and not given the breadth of influence it needs within organisations and, as a result, the overall performance of the business is compromised.
Industrial Process Footprint Design
Many companies miss an opportunity to link strategy to operations when it comes to considering industrial design and manufacturing processes. With our deep understanding of process, efficiency, productivity and performance behaviours, we always improve the design of any factory we are engaged to design for our clients.
Enabling Complex Working Environments
When business models change, and operational footprints and their value chains change in structure, people often do not know how to function effectively in the new model. Our deep understanding of the design of these new models and what they are meant to achieve allows us to develop and train sophisticated ways of working into the new business, helping them to quickly improve performance and deliver the desired results.
Productivity is as the heart of any business, and this book is a simple distillation of over 20 years of implementation knowledge of delivering productivity improvements in industry. It is regarded by some as the bible when it comes to designing and implementing productivity measures within their business.
