There are always opportunities to improve. Even when an organisation is running in a stable state, there will always be potential to optimise performance and improve efficiency. Our business improvement approach relies on scientific method and data analytics to design non-capital intensive initiatives, to bring about ongoing improvements and efficiencies.
Incremental change realised, over time, can be just as effective at driving competitive advantage as large scale transformation. Wherever possible we design our business improvements initiatives in a way that instils a self-sustaining culture of continuous improvement. Change is the new normal and with our help, organisations can fully embrace continuous improvement.
We practice what we preach
We encourage all of our Consultants to strive to improve how we operationally run Oaklin. All of our internal operations are managed using agile principles, encouraging deeper engagement and retrospectives on performance. All of our people are expected to contribute new ideas to improve our operational efficiency and rewarded for making a meaningful impact for how the business runs. We foster an environment where anyone can speak up and nothing is out of bounds for revision and improvement.Business Improvement
