Looking to partner with an “Award-winning Strategic Advisor and Delivery Consultant” with an industrial strength, field-tested transformational roadmap to guide business leaders, like you, to rapidly execute a pathway to market leading performance?

You’ve landed in the right place.

My Purpose

My focus has been to serve my consumer-driven/retail supply chain clients with performance shortfall diagnostics and recommended actions, knowledge building and engaging blueprints for success, and, importantly, short-term executive help to assist them in driving market-leading performance.

As an “Award-winning Strategic Advisor and Delivery Consultant”, I deploy the heavily field-tested “RAPID Transformation Roadmap” ©. I have guided clients to root causes of performance challenges, created practical strategies and established supply chain capabilities which scale, adapt and win.

I have a real passion for working in close collaboration with my clients creating innovative visions for supply chain designs, developing effective strategies to achieve them, and driving flawless execution towards getting results and winning, quickly and efficiently.

The Approach

When it comes to transforming your supply chain network, time is money. Purposeful, rapid and direct action is imperative to close performance gaps.

I learned early in my career there are five align-able elements which, when fully configured, integrated and aligned with vision, ignites a supply chain transformational change leading to accelerated business success:

Processes

Systems

Architecture

Culture

KPIs

The RAPID Transformation Roadmap – An Antidote to Disrupted Performance

Performing an end-to-end assessment of these elements drives generation of strategy options (Stage 1), engagement within stakeholders, development of a roadmap, motivation of resources (Stage 2) and, ultimately, helping your business to lead the way (Stage 3). That’s when the magic truly begins…

Working alongside your team, I’ll help you to rapidly reboot supply chain performance, leveraging my extensive change management expertise honed through multiple waves of disruption and multiple Operational Turnarounds and Strategic Transformations.
