Background:

  • In an increasingly demanding business environment our client's operations did not keep pace with the needs in terms of efficiency and excellence.
  • As a consequence, a global program was created to reduce operational costs as well as simplify and align operations and commercial processes across functions.
  • It was a key target to achieve a significant margin improvement while continuing to grow sales significantly.

Approach:

  • The program focused on three key areas: customer facing operations; production savings and efficiency gains; and Research & Development productivity.
  • Cascading the global strategy, the regional program was composed by over 26 initiatives divided in 3 key areas: business savings, functional savings and cost effectiveness and efficiency.

Outcome:

  • We helped the client to set up a state-of-the-art program management office for the Latin American region by defining and initiating a project governance and stakeholder management, planning, business cases, progress reporting, risk and issue management as well as escalations.
  • Over a three months period we coordinated reporting process by collecting and consolidating status information and created progress reports for the program sponsor as well as the regional and global steering committees.
