In the Consumer Products (or Fast Moving Consumer Goods) sector, as companies look to drive growth and profitability while reducing their environmental impact – which brings great challenges but also great opportunities. Some key industry themes include digital and eCommerce, product variety, complexity and net revenue management (NRM), shift to emerging markets, insight and analytics and customer collaboration and planning.
These changes in the ‘front office’ also continue to drive the need for transformation in the ‘back office’ (e.g. Finance, HR and IT), focussing on continuing to improve efficiency despite the optimum balance of ‘local vs. global’ being increasingly hard to get right.
We’ve worked with many of the world’s leading global consumer goods companies to help them to understand how best to move their business forward – be that in mature or emerging markets, on-line or in store, with customers or consumers, front office or back office – and we work closely with them to get on and do it.
We reviewed a major IT programme and then lead the implementation of the turnaround activities.
When you're involved in big complex projects bringing the wrong suppliers in can be a very costly mistake. We believe you need to focus on the people.
To ensure your HR function has a big impact on your business it often counts to be counter-intuitive.
Our client engaged us to run a rigorous supplier selection and mobilisation process.
"I feel lucky to have spent the last 10 years working with many of the world’s leading CPG companies; it’s a fascinating business that touches literally everyone’s lives. The pace of change and the stakes are high - with the scale of both opportunity and challenge being formidable. We’ll bring our strong sector experience to bear, but we’ll never assume we know your business better than you do. Working as an embedded part of your team, we’ll help you quickly define and deliver the change you need to succeed around the world, online, with your customers and consumers. And we work closely with them to get on and do it."
