Driving Growth With An Operational Overhaul

Challenge

A large real estate development company’s inefficient system of operation was resulting in significant losses. We were tasked with helping them embark on a new phase of growth, to achieve a level of excellence which could be replicated across the group.

Approach

We conducted an audit of the organisation’s current resources practices, structure and processes to successfully facilitate a business modelling workshop, which identified and evaluated the key function areas. Drawing organisational charts for the company’s different departments, we designed and allocated specific functions across divisions and identified issues for change. This process also allowed us to identify the business’s non-core functions and recommend innovative corporate restructuring interventions that would streamline operations. We also engaged closely with the company’s large blue collar workers segment to ensure the organizational transition was managed as seamlessly as possible, and that employee well-being was a core consideration in our proposed interventions.

Results

As part of a huge collaborative effort with the company’s management, the latter leading a complete financial restructuring of the firm in parallel, we supported with a total strategic and organisational restructuring of the business that led to its share price rising 150% in just one year.
