Typically, we work with clients in eight areas:
Business and Cultural Transformation
New growth and expansion phase? Decreasing margins or uncompetitive cost or pricing? Shift in the market conditions? Making a merger or major acquisition work? New ownership or executive leadership? What we find in common in successful transformation efforts is a commitment to an aspirational vision, clear performance targets, leadership and organizational engagement, fundamental changes to how work gets done and an explicit focus on creating new enabling culture as an outcome of working on the business, and how people work and interact. We help clients achieve corporate transformation by supporting the implementation of enterprise systems and processes, including Strategy Development & Execution; Sales & Operational Planning; Supply Chain; Capital Planning & Execution; Planning, Forecasting & Budgeting; Leadership Development & Alignment.
Business and Operational Excellence
Whether they refer to it as “manufacturing” or “operations”, most companies, are looking to drive further improvements in throughput, reliability, cost and safety. Developing a common approach to operational excellence and a culture of site-based operational improvement enables the realization of significant return on capital and risk mitigation. Although the digital evolution promises greater automation of many functions and decisions, there is still a significant need to engage people and build their skills for data-driven decision-making and effective collaboration. Evolve helps companies develop and implement effective operational excellence programs that include elements such as safety, production, reliability, maintenance, engineering, cost and materials management.
Business Performance Management System
The Business Performance Management System (BPMS™) is the set of meetings, reports and interventions organizations use to drive safe, reliable, predictable and sustainable performance through improved collaboration and problem solving. BPMS is the heart of every effective business. Evolve works with clients to develop both enterprise and business unit level BPMS that includes Goals, Roles & Accountabilities; Value Drivers & KPIs; Dashboards & Visual Management; Meeting Cadence and Key Behaviors and Expectations.
Plant turnarounds are an opportunity to give large complex assets renewed life. They are also one of the biggest expenditures and operational risks for an organization when they occur. They don’t come around often, so getting them right – and making them better – is a strategic advantage. It comes down to precision planning and execution. Evolve’s TXX™ approach is comprised of: stakeholder engagement, critical path management & planning: future casting the perfect turnaround, action implementation, TAR management system and after-action review.
Evolve supports companies in developing the culture, capability and supporting systems for ongoing continuous improvement. CI can unlock huge value, mitigate risk and create meaningful work, but companies are often frustrated with the effectiveness and sustainability of their CI efforts. Evolve helps companies to develop effective and sustainable CI programs that have a behavior focus, simple structured problem-solving, strong leadership engagement, cross-functional team focus, integration with standard work and practice, practice, practice.
Capital Projects Excellence (CPX™) focuses on optimizing prioritization, definition, management, and execution of major capital projects. Evolve’s CPX™ approach to capital projects maximizes risk/reward by aligning resources, reducing variation and cost, improving work planning and schedule attainment. Major capital projects are high risk and high reward but there is also a lot of value to be realized to improve the effectiveness of their annual capital spend. Evolve also works with clients to scale their major capital projects process to fit smaller projects to improve project selection and efficiency.
Evolve’s purpose is to help organizations thrive, learn and grow and therefore most of the things that Evolve works on with its clients are ultimately in service of improving Organizational Effectiveness. Client programs that Evolve supports, that are identified as “Organizational Effectiveness”, typically include areas such as: management systems, organizational structure, organizational capability, leadership development.
