Cut costs or control them, redesign an optimal cost structure, implement a different “cost culture” … Managers often deal with contradictory objectives: how do you optimise without destroying what actually works? How do you combine cost control and the ability to drive change? How do you communicate about it and avoid a loss of motivation when the team are asked to do more with less?
We step in on ambitious international programs to identify what can be improved and what costs can be cut:
A leading heavy industry embarks on a comprehensive program to improve performance and reduce selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A). The goal is to optimize processes by using a benchmarking logic and by aligning support functions.
The WillBe Group team brings its experience in leading transformation programs and provides a rigourous methodological framework for the rollout of the program in Europe.
It identifies the sources of productivity or potential savings in each type of process, defines a homogeneous organization structure and provides a set of improvements that can be quickly implemented.
