WHAT WE DO

We work with automotive and transport companies big and small, providing strategic and operational expertise.

  • Start-ups have a clear concept and bold vision but need help to build institutional knowledge. They value our insight into how to propely control vehicle programs and manage the often fiendish complexity.
  • More established organisations are interested in our perspective of industry trends, want to check they aren't missing out on the next big thing and know that we understand how to present to the time-starved C-Suite.

Our two primary offerings:

  1. Strategy, Planning & Research -- project examples include: product concept engineering and segmentation; competitor intelligence; business model creation and hypothesis testing and; primary research into trends such as electrificiation and advanced driver assistance.
  2. Operational Support -- project examples include: program planning and control; procurement; detailed business plan  forecasting; manufacturing engineering and; design engineering and quality management.

Automotive Strategy & Research

Our research aims to be informative, objective and interesting. It leverages real-world experience in a range of roles from operations, through to finance and strategy. It's an industry we know and love.

Automotive Trends & Business Intelligence

Ongoing tracking of automotive industry trends and the strategies of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers and disruptive start-ups... plus anything else we find interesting and relevant.

Strategy

To us, strategy is about deciding where you want to be in the future and how to get there. You know your business but we can help you to choose the destination and journey that is right for you.

Business Improvement

We love problem solving and process improvement. We have a track record in many different environments where we have helped find practical and sustainable solutions to business challenges.

Project Management

Sometimes project management takes up too many of your best people. You want their thoughts and energy engaged on winning new customers or transforming the business. We can help keep your crucial projects on track.

Training

We believe that high performing teams are essential for long term success and we love developing the skills, engagement and motivation to foster that culture in your business. In too many businesses the phrase “people are our best asset” is an over-used cliché. Don’t be one of them.
