what we do
Giving advice is not what consulting should be all about. Each year, companies worldwide pay over $4 billions in consulting fees for colorful reports and mostly impractical recommendations.
At Cotiam, we work with clients to define what a consulting project can do for them and set realistic/achievable targets. We can help you identify gaps and build business cases to help reach internal consensus. We can help you tackle :
- Organisational issues: Re-org, Lean-Agile transformation, Sourcing / outsourcing strategy.
- Growth and new markets: growth acceleration, market identification, sales strategy.
- Operational Excellence challenges: waste reduction, cost optimization, end to end process mapping, bottleneck identification, non-value-added activities (and duplicates) identification
- Project Management Maturity: project management audits, PMO set-up, and bespoke methodology/governance implementation (Lean-Agile, SAFe, PMI, Lean Startup)
- Portfolio Management: project prioritization, projects roadmap, project portfolio management implementation, project dashboards and performance tracking
You have heard about the benefits of Agile and Lean, as well as the risks of not adopting them. They are much more than just trendy “toolkits”, and will help you tackle customer experience challenges, increase operational efficiency and time to market, and chasse waste.
At Cotiam we believe in transforming how companies operate, focusing in particular on creating a culture of relentless improvement, speed, and agility. We instill new routines and behaviors to unleash leadership capacity and implement change.
Our team of Operational Excellence Leaders will help you identify waste and areas of improvements by running Value Stream Mapping workshops, and further work with you to eliminate it, reduce defects, batch sizes, and improve overall speed to market.
