Change Management

 

Change creates uncertainty and instability. Employees become anxious, “What will happen to me?” “How can I influence the decisions?” “Do I have any control?”. For a transition to be successful it is necessary to identify risk and resistance and to win the support of the entire company for the project.

Less fat, more muscles in your support Functions:

Lean Administration

 

Resources are scarce and therefore you should not waste them! Administrative processes and support functions are there to “support”, not to “suffocate”. It does not make sense to make cuts to these functions just for the sake of making cuts. What is at stake is to develop "work efficiency" ! That is why we developed the “7+1 levers of efficiency” method, which has been applied successfully for more than 15 years.

 

G-G+ will assist you on the following topics (* G-G+ specific):

 

  • Identify opportunities and make recommendations based on the *“7+1 levers of efficiency” method.

  • Identify the "right sizing" of each support functions

  • “Make or Buy” strategies. Outsourcing deployment plans definition and implementation

     

Engage and boost your suppliers...and your buyers!

Purchasing

 

In industry, purchasing costs almost always account for over 70% of total costs. Improving by just 1 point can equal several million Euros! These improvements often do not require any additional investment, and therefore equal immediate increase in cash flow. Additionally, the better relationships you establish with your suppliers, the more innovative and efficient you can be for your clients.

 

G-G+ will assist you on the following topics (* G-G+ specific):

  • *Flash audit

  • *Coaching of Purchasing Managers

  • *Define purchasing strategies: both global and specific to each segment of purchasing

  • Define how to integrate suppliers as partners into all your business processes (*Co-success concept)

  • Organization of the procurement function: processes, indicators and tools definition and implementation (including *purchasing roadmaps)

  • Negotiation training (in partnership with Christine Morlet)

  • Achieving quick wins via coaching and support on real negotiation business cases

     

Employees First, Customers Second

Employee@Heart

 

Like many longtime consultants, I had started out by thinking of Value Creation for the shareholders, then customer delight. However, through my operational jobs I realized that all that was important but appeared to be only a consequence of happy employees. Indeed how can you engage employees into customer satisfaction if themselves have no vision, no clear understanding of what is expected from them and how they contribute to Company success, if you do not trust them and if they are not accountable, if their work conditions are poor and their career perspectives unclear? Happy employees are the entry point of the vertuous circle for customer and shareholder happiness. It is where G-G+ helps its customers to make it happen.

 

G-G+ will assist you on the following topics (* G-G+ specific):

  • Flash diagnosis, 360 degree leadership, employee satisfaction surveys

  • Definition and communication, including via digital means, of a shared and motivating vision

  • On the job training for management and leadership, in partnership with Manageris

  • Developing programs to enhance staff involvement, including suggestions plans

  • *Deploying Company social networks, together with Sociabble software (in partnership with Brainsonic/Sociabble) to boost Internal and External Communication impact

  • *Conference on how to succeed via employee@heart implementation

     

Gain more: what and how?

 

I always believed that a company should be managed with a spirit of growth: to create more value, to conquer new territories, gain new products, etc. Defining those areas for growth is key, as well as organizing their concrete implementation!

New Geographical Territories

 

A major source of growth can be achieved in international markets.

Digital Change

 

Some managers in the Industry still believe that digital is a luxury reserved for B2C. Now, however, digital has become a key lever to boost change and generate growth also in B2B businesses. A key lever...provided it is not introduced just "to do like everyone". It has to be implemented in a very professionnal manner, with the true willingness to let it boost the Company transformation. This is why G-G+ has partnered with Brainsonic, one of France’s leaders in digital, social media and social selling, including via their softwares, such as Sociabble.
