Twenty years of IT design, bridging the gap between management, users and developments – working with various methods to capture needs, requirements and issues – led to the development of TEaMS in 2004, a workshop and process modeling approach to quickly and effectively get from As-Is to To-Be!
TEaMS can be used for any sort of change required. It works by involving all the stakeholders and participants in a set of workshops designed to find and fulfill what is needed.
TEaMS is Teams Evolving and Making Solutions. We look at change as an evolutionary process – you have to start where you are today. But you will get where you are going if you use this or a similar process to create the changes needed.
The method we use allows us to envision the output required, define the future process, understand the inputs needed, select the right tools for the job and then – work with the team to get it done!
We have a very large assortment of tools to use in this work. Unlike the man for whom all problems look like a nail because the only tool he has is a hammer, we can address many different challenges with our toolkit.

We don’t focus on “down-sizing”, we believe that our clients need to continue to service their existing client base and be positioned for future growth. We understand that you need to reduce your cost base, not your business! Our business growth coaching models help you to increase the top-line as well as the bottom-line, and improve profitability by reviewing in-depth your own tailored business processes and focussing on small achievable improvements in processes that are executed over and over again. Tiny changes executed thousands of times realise real savings. Most commonly-executed processes haven’t had a thorough review in the past six months, and a nuts-and-bolts walkthrough leading to detailed business modelling can identify the small changes that can mean large changes in your cost base.
In this environment, there is currently an extraordinary focus on cost-cutting as the way to profitability and many companies take the easy approach of reducing staff first; though cost reduction must form an element of any profitability improvement plan, we work with our clients to minimise the impact of change on existing employees and clients. We look for a balance between growth and cost reduction which maximises the opportunities for increased productivity positioning the company to achieve more business and revenue, and reducing or eliminating activities costing the business lost revenue opportunity. Simply said, we try to cut costs, not people.
We believe strongly that every employee wants to add to the success of her organisation and finding the best way to do that can often be found at the “coal-face”. Our TEaMS methodology lets your employees find their voice in helping your organisation to weather this economic climate and come out stronger, more resilient and with much better processes in place to service your current and future clients.
CUTTING COSTS – NOT PEOPLE
So that you have the capacity to scale up and take on more business!
We are niche boutique consultancy focussing on profitability improvement. We have been in the consulting business since 2004 and how we serve our customers has changed over the years – which is why we are completely redesigning our web interface. Moving away from static content and towards an interactive exchange with clients and thought influencers.
Most of our current clients are SME companies in the healthcare , software, technology or logistics arena; they are looking to change their business, either through entering a new geography or adding a new product or possibly streamlining their operations.
