How to get started with us
Let’s get to know each other.
If you haven’t worked with us before, the first step is for us to get to know one another. We need to know whether we have the skills and capabilities to help you, and you need to know whether we are the type of organization that you want to work with. The starting point is generally a phone call followed by a meeting – ideally face-to-face, or we can meet online using a platform of your choice.
Let’s understand you.
At this first meeting, we aim to understand what it is that you are looking for help with, but more importantly, we want to understand what results you are trying to achieve. By asking questions and exploring your needs we will collaboratively uncover how you may best realise the results you are looking for at the lowest practical cost.
At the same time, we encourage you to ask lots of questions of us – about our experience, our people, our tools and approaches. We want you to feel comfortable that we are the right people to help you – and we want to feel sure that we have the capability to deliver the results you expect.
Let’s see what we can do to help.
Sometimes you know what you want to achieve, but you aren’t sure how best to achieve it. Or you believe you know what needs to be done, but you need some help to get further support from elsewhere in your organization.
In this situation, it is common for clients to engage us to perform an independent assessment of their maturity in the related area. These assessments help to clarify the path forward and develop a business case for improvement and internal support.
Some typical key outputs of these assessments include:
- A formal evaluation of your systems, processes, competence, culture and use of technology. These are compared with good practice benchmarks and other organisations for which we have conducted similar assessments.
- A documented improvement roadmap which we will develop in close collaboration with you. This typically includes improvement actions that you can progress yourself, and others that you may need external assistance with.
Let’s get you to where you want to be.
Whether as a result of an independent assessment, or following our initial conversation, the typical next step in our engagement process is for us to work together to clearly define the endpoint that you are striving to reach, and develop a costed plan for getting there.
The typical output of these discussions is a formal costed proposal from us which details what we will do to help you define and document your improved processes, procedures and/or documentation, and the associated timing and costs. The extent of our involvement in these activities is entirely dependent on your needs, capabilities and constraints.
We are flexible in the way we approach our work – our primary concern is that you get the results that you are looking for, in the timeframe that you want, at a price that delivers value for money.
Let’s secure your future success.
One of our key beliefs is that if improvement is to be sustained, the changes need to be fully embedded in your organization and owned by you and your staff. To achieve this, we must create awareness of the need for change, and empower people with the capability to change.
This frequently involves some form of formal training or on-the-job coaching, which we would be more than happy to provide. We are hungry to see our work through to full completion, with processes and procedures fully embedded, plans being actioned and continually improved.
Goodbye, but not farewell.
At some point your original improvement aims will have been achieved, and at this point it will be time for us to say goodbye – but not farewell. It is our aim to build a relationship with you that is enduring, and based on a solid foundation of mutual trust and respect. We hope to keep in touch, learn of your ongoing successes, and if the opportunity arises, help you out with your next challenge.
