Sally was on top of managing her business and staff until recently. COVID-19 has, however, had a major impact on things! When all of her team worked in the same physical location, it was easy for Sally to keep track of who was doing what, and communication within her team was fluid and continuous.

There are regular breakdowns in communication, and it is difficult for Sally to know exactly what everyone is doing, and how they are progressing with their tasks.

Michelle – Chief Financial Officer
Michelle is the CFO at a medium-size travel agency. Due to a downturn in the travel industry, Michelle is under pressure to reduce operating costs without compromising on service quality.
Michelle is concerned about imposing companywide budget cuts as she believes that some parts of the organisation are less efficient than others, and such extreme actions could negatively impact customer service and staff morale.
4IR Consult can do a review of the key business processes to identify waste and inefficiencies. Applying Lean Thinking, 4IR Consult can then design and implement business process improvements that both improve the process efficiency and quality. 4IR Consult also recommends that they design and implement some performance measures to ensure that the staff are all working at a sustainable level of productivity. Michelle is confident that these collective actions will bring about the required reduction in operational costs while, at the same time, improving business performance.
