Objectives and Key Deliverables

This challenging and interesting project is set in the context of a corporate transformation with the objective of significantly improving the effectiveness and efficiency of operations under the umbrella of a growth strategy. Having recently come under new ownership, the intention is now to increase competitiveness even further to be able to outperform less dynamic competitors. The organisation competes against larger players with greater scale economies and must become more efficient. In addition considerable transformation is needed to establish itself in future growth markets, as well as for product development to align the portfolio with future customer requirements. In order to fund these changes, without new financial injections, the firm must find productivity improvements in other areas. A broad range of strategic initiatives have been defined as part of the new strategy and this specific project is aimed at improving the organisational performance, starting with the service organisation

Phase 1: Baseline, identify and prioritise improvement potential (cost and efficiency, including headcount, process and structure)
• Phase 2: Pilot implementation of top priority initiatives
• Phase 3: Roll-out best practice across service function

An experienced project manager with analytical rigor, leadership qualities, drive and enthusiasm for making a real impact in what can easily become a large, multi-year project

• Structuring and prioritising work – significant data analysis (extracting right data, analysing large amount of data and drawing conclusions)
• Developing documented client ready analysis conclusions, including results, implications and options towards project objectives
• Engaging with client at operational level, conducting interviews, work assignment and workshops as needed
• Informing and updating lead partner of progress and potential issues
• Experience with fact- and data-driven operational efficiency improvement projects

Manufacturing experience highly desirable as is exposure to the energy sector.
The project will commence in early Feb. and the consultant will be expected to work on site in N. Germany, with some European travel.
