Lean / Continuous improvement

"Excellent firms don't believe in excellence - only in constant improvement and constant change." (Tom Peters)

Every organisation wants to improve, to stay ahead of the competition, and flourish. Often the biggest barrier to improvement is time - time away to work on the business, rather than in the business. Sometimes you simply need an extra pair of hands, a partner with the time to help you achieve your goals. Other times, you need an expert to help you completely transform your business. The team at Frank can help you with either, or both.

Frank's Lean program helps you grow your organisation's capability, increase efficiency, reduce waste, and improve processes and performance.

The program is tailored to the unique needs of your organisation - whether it is to start you off on your Continuous Improvement journey, to address a particular challenge, or deliver a company-wide lean implementation program.

As an approved provider to the Callaghan Innovation Better by Lean program, Frank can provide the framework and implementation of this proven method in your organisation.

Strategy development & implementation

Strategy development & implementation

"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there" (Lewis Carroll)

Frank's Strategic Planning Program helps you to shape a vision for the future. Based on a sound understanding of your current performance, we will help you develop a strategy and work with you to build a plan how to get there.

We’ve worked with many small and medium business owners, and the recurring theme around not achieving potential is the lack of a structured plan and poor accountability.
With your senior management team, we help you articulate your mission, vision and values, and co-create a plan that aligns all aspects of your business with your vision and financial goals. The team will then plan a road map to achieve the goals by assigning key initiatives and tasks (with delivery dates) to team members.

We use tools such as SWOT, the BCG Matrix, Porter’s positioning framework and customer / market segmentation to address three key questions

✓ Where are we now?
✓ Where do we want to be?
✓ How do we get there?
