Oliver Wight launches business improvement programmes

Oliver Wight has launched a series Fast Track business improvement programmes, designed to help companies  boost performance under difficult trading conditions.

There are seven programmes within the series which include working capital reduction, order-to-cash time compression, product portfolio optimisation, supplier cost improvement, engineering spares re-profiling, customer order fulfilment, and capacity utilisation improvement.

Each programme is designed to provide an immediate diagnostic of the business and a robust process for supply chain optimisation, root-cause analysis and solutions development – plus a tool kit to drive continuous improvement, with a set of performance measures to benchmark improvement against.

CEO of Oliver Wight, Les Brookes, said: “The current global economic climate is obviously putting increased pressure on businesses and making it ever more difficult for them to achieve their short-term goals.  This series of workshop-based programmes is designed to give companies some substantial ‘quick wins’, with rapid improvements in business performance and a return on investment within months.”
