Three ways to improve your business
Three steps towards business improvement
1. Short online courses on processes, people and culture
Access digital training and cost effectively train staff in key areas that will positively impact business growth. Plant the seeds for long term business improvement and set the tone for positive change.
2. Leadership and management two day workshops
Set your team on the path to lasting success through these in-depth workshops. Develop your leadership and management teams into the kind of leaders you need to grow your organisation.
3. High level consultation for operation excellence
Deliver measurable improvement through an end-to-end system that optimises processes, equips teams with the appropriate skills to deliver and develops the necessary culture for sustainable business improvement.
The ProPeC way of doing things
Traditionally, consultants come in, introduce processes, tell people what to do and then disappear. But when the consultants disappear, everything tends to go back to where it was before. The reason for this is the people on the ground don’t understand what they’re doing, why they’re doing it or even how to do it.
Therefore, we believe operational excellence, long term business transformation and sustainable results can only be achieved with an end-to-end approach that brings about change through process, people and culture.
Most people recognise that in order to improve something in their organisation they have to improve their processes or how they do things. This has been the traditional area of focus and the most tangible element of business improvement projects. Improving systems and processes looks at things like how to improve processes to reduce waste or improve productivity.
Skilled and competent people who have the skills and knowledge to implement processes (now and in the future) are essential to the success of your organisation. The knowledge and skills of your people will directly link to the success of any kind of business improvement project.
Although training people on how to use improved systems and processes has always an afterthought, if people in your organisation are going to successfully implement improved processes, there are going to be a whole range of skills they’ll need to succeed.
Therefore, the ProPeC approach is to establish what skills are actually needed and assess current skill levels. We then go about delivering carefully selected training, coaching and mentoring programmes to ensure the skill sets for success are present.
A culture that supports your people in doing the right things is essential. You need people to understand why they’re doing things. You need people who actually want to do it.
New behaviours and ways of doing things won’t stick if they are not embedded into the way that your people think. So, what your people really think is fundamental to the success of business improvement projects. If the culture of your business is not right, your people will stop doing the things you trained them to do.
The ProPeC approach to culture goes way beyond top down definitions of values that need to be ‘rolled out’. Culture cannot be rolled out. Culture is dynamic, created and cultivated from the bottom-up. We show you how to engage your workforce in the creation of a culture they feel they own, rather than one they feel is forced on them.
