Provide services that help businesses achieve great performance and free them to concentrate on their customers.
What We Can Bring…
We bring intelligence, determination, organisation, creativity, open-mindedness, love for business and huge amounts of energy.
We bring a questioning mind and a fresh perspective to strategic challenges, whilst at the same time recognising and respecting the knowledge and history of your organisation. Our type of strategic analysis and consultancy is built on the philosophy of helping you properly assess the right future path for your organisation; it doesn’t involve telling you that we know best and can run your business more effectively than you.
“We love seeing businesses go on to reach their potential, reward employees and owners and wow their customers”
What we do is help you to see how to concentrate on what you are best at and how to deal with the things that you aren’t so good at or are distracting you (sometimes by stopping them). We have a passion for business and we love seeing businesses go on to reach their potential, reward employees and owners and wow their customers.
We bring problem-solving skills and a continuous improvement culture that has been applied on the factory floor and in the office. We bring the knowledge that things can always be made better and that improvement isn’t just about shiny new IT systems that take so long to deliver everyone has forgotten what the objectives were by the time it arrives (overdue and over budget). Improvement must be real, timely and sustained.
“Improvement isn’t just about shiny new IT systems that take so long to deliver everyone has forgotten what the objectives were by the time it arrives”
We will show you how we would approach things. We will also listen to you and learn how your culture works because we know that improvement is about the solution that’s right for you, your team and your stakeholders. If everything was done by the book then there would only be one book, we’d all do it that way and differentiation would be impossible. Safety critical situations aside, life is rarely so simple. We want to help with the problems that matter to you by finding the solutions that work for you.
We bring organisation, communication, creativity and a focus on delivery to project management. We know how to develop a plan and identify the ways in which the ideal path could go wrong. We build in the steps to assess progress and the need for contingency measures. We’ll be clear with you about the resources and time it will take to deliver the project and the trade-off between the two.
“Project management must go beyond creating attractive and intimidating project charts”
Project management must go beyond creating attractive and intimidating project charts which tell you little more than that there was a point in time when it was all possible. We create plans that the whole team understands (they are attractive but not intimidating). We involve the key stakeholders in assessing how to deliver with quality. We keep people up to date on project status and provide clear direction on what help is required.
When it comes to training, we bring inquisitiveness, a thirst for knowledge, an emphasis on clear communication and an energy level that can bring interest to even the most seemingly mundane subjects.
“Training is an investment that we want to be worthwhile”
We recognise that time spent training is precious because your team is having to take time away from their jobs and the work doesn’t simply disappear while they are out. We want this investment to be worthwhile and for them to go back after the training more aware, experienced and productive than before. We also know that style of communication is key and we work hard to make sure that we understand how your organisation feels and sounds so that as little is lost in communication as possible.
We bring focused interest, an eye for the story and love of detail to research. Intellectual curiosity is at the centre of all that we do and helping you to understand the business environment better is a task that we take very seriously.
“We want to be able to answer the burning questions on your mind”
We want to be able to answer the burning questions on your mind and we want to show you things that we have discovered which we think are interesting and relevant to your business.
Which Clients Get The Best From Us…
Our name says it all: Ad Punctum means to the point. We work best in relationships where our rapport with the client means that we can respectfully speak our minds. We really want our clients to succeed and consider it to be a good sign when our services are no longer needed. The circumstances in which this works best do vary between companies but there are a couple of common elements:
- The senior management team is engaged and welcomes an external perspective
- The task has sufficient internal resource and is championed at a senior level
Our team are ready to work tirelessly for you. Our varied experience includes manufacturing, strategy, finance and product development. Whatever the issue, we believe that we can help and provide a useful perspective.
