Our Approach

We support organisations achieve Enterprise Excellence by developing business improvement and transformation programmes that engage and empower all employees.  Our specialist consultants can also support you with specific challenges such as Digital Transformation, Strategy Development, TPM, Operational Excellence, the development of Leadership, and continuous improvement coaching and capabilities.

Our approach is to work alongside our clients to build the behaviours, capability and business systems that deliver long term sustainable improvement.  We truly believe in our brand promise ‘Together, the power to improve’.

To develop your business transformation programme we would first assess your organisational maturity and then create a roadmap to enable you to achieve your desired future state. We will then support you to develop the Skills, Systems and behaviours to deliver a successful programme. Our consultants and partners are all trained in our latest award winning thinking. All our materials, training and coaching is delivered by approved practitioners accredited through Cardiff University and The Shingo Institute.

Where are you on your Transformation Journey?

We are all striving for Sustainable Continuous Improvement. At S A Partners we see Organisational Transformation as a journey where we set goals, assess progress, refine plans and continually develop the way forward. We have developed the S A Partners Improvement Journey Model (affectionately know as the squiggly line), which signposts this in detail.

The Squiggly line is a key diagnostic tool created to assess your organisational maturity. Each section of the model is assessed in order to conduct a thorough diagnostic of your current state and create a roadmap that enables you to realise your future goals. We translate your vision and targets into a resourced, time-bound roadmap and a governance structure that ensures Sustainable Continuous Improvement is delivered.

Delivering Enterprise Excellence

Our consulting approach is centred around the Enterprise Excellence model and its 7 elements and we have developed a consulting team that can deliver Enterprise Excellence to clients, worldwide. We combine our abilities to assess your organisational need and solve your problems through training and coaching of your people to create sustainable improvement. We continually challenge and improve our thinking through reviewing our successes, and understanding our customers current and future needs. We have won 5 Shingo Research prizes for our publications based around this world-renowned philosophy.

Programme Management & Governance

To deliver a successful improvement programme you need four essential elements:

  1. Purpose – ensure everyone involved understands why the programme is being delivered
  2. Sponsorship – clarify of who is providing the support and guidance for the programme
  3. Resources – a clear understanding of who is going to deliver the improvement
  4. Plans – a roadmap of how you are going to structure the improvement programme

These will help you deliver your programme both on time and in budget.

To deliver an effective improvement programme it is important to have the right mix of skills throughout the organisation, if not there will be an imbalance leading to the programme drifting or failing.
