Oliver Wight release a new executive guide on conducting a Business Health Check that explains how organisations can get fit for the future.
June 18, 2014 (Newswire) - Business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight have released a new executive guide, detailing the features and benefits of a business health check and advising on how organisations can get 'fit for the future'.
"When the global financial crisis struck, such was its speed, many businesses went in to survival mode, simply firefighting to get by. Now as demand returns, businesses need to take rapid action to improve their processes and effectively meet customer needs or else face potentially catastrophic consequences," says Oliver Wight CEO, Les Brookes.
The Oliver Wight Health Check combines the industry-renowned Class A checklist, a business maturity assessment, comprehensive diagnostic and Oliver Wight's performance benchmarking tool to produce a comprehensive action-oriented report.
"The report not only details the business' current position and highlighted gaps, but the potential opportunities and gap closing activities," explains Brookes. "Reviewed by our experienced team of industry practitioners, it provides practical, useful advice to help an organisation improve its core processes, not just supply chain, but demand and product management too."
Developed following high level of demand for this type of service, Brookes believes organisations are increasingly realising the importance of preparing for the future. "The time and cost of conducting a Business Health Check is not substantial but the price of not knowing where you stand, and then failing to service customer demand effectively, is potentially fatal," he concludes.
Brookes will present on the subject at the Supply Chain and Logistics Summit in Barcelona on 17th June 2014.
