Our Areas of Expertise
Cost-reduction efforts can occur at any stage of the organizational life cycle, whether after a merger or due to periodic restructuring, the need for a re-evaluation of the cost –effectiveness of processes and organizational units is often on the table of decision makers.
Through a structured analysis process, NG Group's Cost Reduction projects rapidly identify and target cost reduction potentials. After targeting, savings achievement is done by organizational priorities and is carried-out while attending to the ever-sensitive issues of employee motivation, organizational culture impacts and change management.
Organizational Growth Plan
Growth is good. Most managers would leave it at that. However, as experience often shows, a firm that wishes to maximize upon a growth opportunity, must plan the organizational implications of this event carefully.
Issues such as the extent of investment in infrastructure vs. extension of capabilities through outsourcing need to be considered when facing substantial growth.
Consolidation of Business Processes & Units
Whether it's assimilating an entire organization or just absorbing a new business line, the ability to identify duplicate efforts and capitalize on economies of scale can make the difference between a brilliant business move to a colossal flop in strategic business administration. Through process and unit consolidation the organization breaks-away from history and tradition and re-evaluates the structure and processes in the eyes of the actual needs an operational efficiency.
In the same way as physics law state that "Gas will expand to the volume it's given to expand within", organizational roles tend to expand to the extent of people assigned to them.
This phenomenon and others contribute to the familiar situation of having ill-defined roles in the organization that accumulate tasks over the years with little relevance to actual and critical organizational goals.
NG Group aligns organizational structure, role definitions and process participation to organizational goals defined in a structured strategic process. Thus, roles can be re-evaluated, rationalized and aligned with the actual needs of the firm, usually leading to a substantial reduction in head-count or increase in organizational effectiveness.
Standards and Standard Operating Procedure Development
Modern organizations are big and complex. Controlling each activity through direct management is becoming increasingly futile. In-order to ensure implementation of management strategy and policies and compliance with legal and other constraints, organizations must define operational standards and explicitly define procedures for most operational processes. The effort to define procedures and standards for an entire organization is often a daunting task. The need might stem from an external standard such as ISO or SOX, or due to an internal need to standardize and organize performance.
By relying on structured templates, a structured procedure development process and by connecting procedures to organizational goals and processes, NG Group can make this project into a growth opportunity for the organization, extending the value gained while reducing the organizational effort.
Resource & Activity Advanced Planning
Matching resources with activities in the organization is always a challenge. In manufacturing environments these tools are available as part of the production planning process. Service and sales companies are finding this need for systematic planning at all organizational levels as a growing challenge.
By combining smart and simple to use tools with personnel training in planning procedures, NG Group can enhance organizational planning and create the internal capability for matching resources to activity needs.
