Business challenge

Our client needed to transform their business using all available production levers, embedding effective ‘wiring’ and building capability in the internal continuous improvement team to ensure a successful transformation.


A celebrated processed meats' producer was struggling to break even.

Its multinational financier was concerned that the factories had failed to produce at their budgeted costs for the last four years.

They also worried they were unable to increase production to match market demand in specific business units, despite having the capacity to do so.

Business impact

  • Ensure clear accountabilities and targeted implementation of agile ways of working to accelerate decision‑making and allow for the rapid reprioritisation of effort
