The resource paradigm
Companies have strategies and strategies usually breed projects. Many of our clients find that having the right strategy is not as challenging as finding the right resources to execute it. Internal knowledge is key to a project's success, but the best talent in the organization is typically not sitting idle waiting for their next assignment. That's where we add value.
Our professionals see and appreciate the value in working with internal resources to help you achieve a project. Whether it's revamping a complete process stream or simply implementing a new regulatory procedure, our teams will work with yours to make sure you achieve your goals and that most of the knowledge stays in the business, where it belongs.

A global dental equipment manufacturer and distributor was looking to implement a shared service center as a way to drive value for their shareholders. Long on strategy but short on resources, they were frustrated with their capability to get to the value they knew was there. We were able to bridge their resource gaps and work alongside their team to establish a shared service center covering procurement, accounts receivable, and inventories. After seeing the value our talent could deliver as well as hw they fit with the internal culture, we were able to work with them and place these resources as permanent members of the team.
WHERES THE BEEF?
A meat snack products manufacturer and distributor knew that in order to keep up with rising demand and growth targets they needed to upgrade their procurement systems. They contracted a Big 4 firm to lay out the business case, which they presented to the board of directors. The board insisted that the project be done but costs had to come down by 40% to achieve the minimum return requirements. We were able to work with the customer to implement the new procurement system an exceed the requirements of the board.
