Restructuring
  • Fixing rapidly an emergency while at the same time maintaining the business capabilities
  • We start involving all stakeholders into profound dialogues, fact-based validation of assumptions and
    solid business acumen. Then we go into realization: design a realist plan, securing the right financing,
    project management and implementation team.
Recurring Capex scrubbing
  • Quick fact-based scan of the entire project’s portfolio to assign each project a risk index based on
    cost and likelihood of consequences if not investing
  • The risk index is used for ranking all projects and is a solid decision base to help select what can be
    postponed, canceled or should be executed
Project Capex reduction
  • With our solution MINIMAX, we create a new “skeleton” technical solution which still satisfies the
    mandatory project’s requirements. By doing this, we challenge the design for all the elements that don’t
    add value to the project.
  • MINIMAX can be applied at different levels of the design to assess the whole project or only part of
    it.
Project value increase
  • With our solution MINIMAX, we create a new “skeleton” technical solution which still satisfies the
    mandatory project’s requirements. Afterwards, we add back all design options that add value, increasing
    project’s NPV.
  • MINIMAX can be applied at different levels of the design to assess the whole project or only part of
    it.
Kaizen week
  • Structured 5-days workshops, starting with assessment of current state and ending with top management
    presentation of implemented changes.
  • Can be done either on the factory floor or in an office environment and involves employees at different
    level in the organization.
Lean pilots
  • A small but representative area/process of the factory/office where a holistic transformation (physical
    workplaces, management processes, skills and mindset) can show what and how lean can achieve
  • Assess current state, define new targets, design and plan the future state, implement changes and
    measure results. Typical duration: 4-12 weeks.
Lean transformation
  • A site-wide application of single lean transformation projects, following the rule of “pilot and
    roll-out” where the first pilot is used to test the approach and train your “change agents” to be able
    to lead themselves the roll-out
  • From the first projects, your “Lean Business System Handbook” is created and is used and fine-tuned
    during roll-out. Typical duration: 3-9 months.
Operational excellence program
  • When organizations are in a mature “lean” stage within some area of excellence, the challenge is to
    export the lean mindset to the whole company.
  • This program aims to create the prerequisites (e.g., help you in selecting and training the “change
    agents”), define the program architecture (e.g. roadmap, targets and monitoring system) and run several
    transformation projects until results are sustainable. Typical duration: 1-2 years.
Industry 4.0 pilots
  • This is the first step to introduce digital solutions in your operations: define the need and create a
    simple business case, screen the market for a suitable use case, perform first tests and assess
    achievements to compare to initial business case
  • Parallel to physical implementation, we help you to communicate the expected changes to your employees
    and assess digital leadership skills
Digital operations
  • From few selected Industry 4.0 pilots to a large scale digitization of your operations. This
    transformation is critical for the change in the way people will work in the new system and must be
    accompanied with the right approach.
  • We can help you to create the plan, identify roles involved and the implication in their way of working.
    Especially leadership roles must be trained to lead in a “lean and digital” environment e.g., how to use
    the huge amount of digital data to best manage the operations and not suffocate by it.
Organic growth program
  • The first phase of the organic growth program is to design the strategy. We will spend time with your
    people, analyze your market, identify what are your core competences to build upon and define the
    long-term targets
  • In the second phase, we will create an implementation plan, define what is going to change (roles,
    processes), help you select your talents for the new positions and how to manage other critical personal
    situations.
Structural growth program
  • Like the organic growth program, also the structural growth program starts with a design phase to design
    the strategy. Here the moves might be much bolder and consider acquisitions of other business.
  • In this case, Growing can offer ad-hoc M&A expertise and several industrial contacts from our broad
    international experts network.
  • Yours is a special case that requires a dedicated clarifying conversation.
