About the team  

In our Transformation & Operations practice we focus on addressing the issues and questions that keep COOs awake at night. We start right at the top, helping our clients articulate and implement their strategic direction and touch every layer of an organisation from improving the customer experience to business and financial performance right down to the shop floor, optimising day to day operations and supply chain efficiency.


Our team works with high calibre executives and senior leaders, both in Australia and internationally, who are faced with the requirement to transform their operations to increase productivity, lower costs and restructure their business models to get the most out of their workforce and assets to remain competitive.


We specialise in turning strategies into measurable and sustainable results. Our clients face complex challenges that range from transformation in response to market demands through to disruption from technology advances such as robotics and cognitive automation that drive them to rethink customer experience and the efficiencies that can be gained from operations. Our team is growing rapidly in response to market demands for critical thinkers who can solve complex business problems.
