Optimising Operational Success

We like to accentuate the positive enriching and empowering experiences and rewards that both organisations and individuals can experience from such international adventures, and so we place a strong emphasis on three central service pillars.

The first is the importance of preparing people – to reduce deployment and culture shock, through a SMARTER, intelligent approach which looks to fully prepare and orientate clients for deployment prior to embarkation, as well as provide in country support, somas to help assure that organisations and clients understand and can effectively operate in local contexts, environments and cultures.

The second is to ensure that the best possible organisational and professional foundations are laid by ensuring that operational and on the ground requirements are full understood, potential operational risk reduced and options presented. A key pillar here is the importance of learning from and understanding the common challenges, issues and patterns involved in assuring successful international operations and others’ ‘failures’.

The third is to help organisations assure that they understand the on-the ground realities of how to best achieve the competitive advantage of and reap the potential rewards from an international presence and operations. To achieve this help organisations professionally plan a SMARTER and intelligent in country operational deployment, stabilisation and maturation, drawing upon our and our networks’ regional, national and local expertise, experience, intelligence and knowledge.

Taking  a business, commercially, pragmatic and practical focus, we assure that clients have a realistic assessment of the resources required to successfully establish operations, as well as to help source such assets and resources; as well as helping them to successfully understand and address operational issue such as compliance, regulatory and choice of local partners.

Finally, we help organisations establish the operational frameworks, channels and mechanisms around which effective operational and management information, intelligence, feedback and reporting can be embedded and advantage taken of two-way feedback, innovation and research.

Diversity Driving Excellence

A key pillar of our in country operational support is helping organisations to harness local people, talent and expertise by assuring that they appreciate and understand national and local labour market regulations, climates, priorities and agendas which may impact upon their operations; be able to effectively access people and talent and recruit from local labour markets; and establish appropriate people frameworks, systems and practices.
