Just finished another key meeting? Worked hard, challenged the Status Quo, pulled the team to a consensus?

Did you spend your time on the right issues?

If you are a senior or executive team, the benefits of rapid reporting, accessible data and of course your own team’s deep knowledge of the operation can blind you to your real role.

Should your team be focusing on the last and next day, reflecting on the last or next month, or the next year or two? And then if you decide you are looking ahead, who does focus on the other timeframes?

Balancemark™ is a new process designed to show you where you and you team’s heads are now and where you want to be. Get that right, empower your Operations teams to manage the here and now and start carving out the future your business deserves.

Site strategy

What’s the difference between a site with a strategy and a site without?

It sounds like a one-liner joke, a simplistic question, but it is at the heart of a site’s success. Machan Consulting has helped numerous businesses develop a strategy for their future: a plan to overcome far eastern competition, a roadmap to reverse poor efficiencies and customer service, a means to forge a unified workforce.

Can every site strategy deliver on all of its aims?

No, of course not. Can a site achieve them without a strategy?

Sometimes, if you’re lucky. So the answer to the one-liner? One believes in luck and the other doesn’t. Which do you want your team to follow? Have a look at our site for how to engage us and reduce your dependence on those dice.
