Our goal is always to get value flowing quickly, efficiently and sustainably. Working smarter, you can achieve more with the same resources—or the same work in less time.
As competitive global markets and trends such as digital disruption apply pressure to costs and quality expectations, many enterprises are running just to stay in place. To move forward, you must become agile, innovative and focused on execution.
Maximising the speed and concentration at which you can generate value is key to maintaining sustainable competitive advantage. But there’s a fundamental challenge inherent in the way most organisations are set up.
While value creation tends to flow horizontally across functional silos—before it reaches customers in the form of a product or service—authority and accountability for functional siloes tends to flow vertically. This generates constraints and resource conflicts.
How you manage these constraints is critical. Resources that perform value-adding activities within operational and strategic projects need to be understood within the context and goals of the whole organisation.
Yet dealing with this problem in a structured, repeatable way is demanding given resource limitations and the sheer pace and volume of change.
How does value flow?
Value creation in any enterprise may combine four kinds of flow to produce products and services that create financial results.
Innovation flow – how quickly can you convert new ideas into profitable products and services?
Strategy flow – how does management direct resources to execute organisational objectives?
Material flow – how responsive are your supply chains in moving raw materials and finished products?
Information flow – how well is data managed to create insights that support effective business decisions?
Ensemble designs and delivers systems of work management that align value-creation activities with business objectives.
Our capabilities help you generate greater value from your resources, accelerating the rate at which you deliver value to your customers, employees and shareholders.
