Our Areas of Expertise
Management & Leadership
Transforming the leadership capabilities within your organisation is about more than equipping managers with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ toolkit. We can help your management team and future leaders develop an approach to leadership which is right for them and relevant to the workplace. By taking a long-term, strategic view of management within your organisation, you can look towards achieving continuity in management rather than disruption when change occurs.
Human Resource Management and Organisational Development
By creating sound internal structures and procedures, we can help your organisation face any external challenges that may arise from the ever-changing business environment. We will work with you to develop approaches to team building, effective and ethical negotiation, mediation and the keys to motivation, in order to create a positive and more productive working environment.
Logistics & Supply Chain
In recent years, logistics and supply chain management have risen on the corporate agenda and are now recognised as crucial in allowing companies to compete on the global stage. With our state-of-the art resources, we can help your organisation to streamline and enhance your supply chain to deliver improved efficiency, productivity and cost benefits. Our consultancy and research services have been enhanced following the establishment of a Logistics Institute at the school.
Meeting the challenge of identifying, understanding, anticipating and responding to customer needs can be a major driver of success, and with the push to globalisation, and digitalisation. In addition to enhancing the quality and effectiveness of your marketing material, we can help you to get the best value from your activities through the development of cohesive marketing strategies in digital and analytics.
‘Systems thinking’ is an approach which considers the whole as more than a sum of its parts, and encourages the consideration of the organisation in its entirety rather than tackling difficult areas in isolation. This approach allows you to get the root of problems and discover where seemingly small issues stem from organisation-wide weaknesses. Used proactively a systems approach will enhance and improve every area of your operation, from strategy development to knowledge management.
Finance & Economics
In increasingly competitive environments, good financial management and control will help you to survive. We work with managers to give them the capacity to assess financial standing of your company, putting crucial data at their fingertips when forward planning. To optimise financial operations, we can introduce theories of risk and the psychology of decision making. Our economic experts can provide an understanding of economic policy and regulation, international capital markets and corporate governance, making a difference to your bottom line.
