Credentials (short description of some typical assignments)

Defending the leading market position
Opportunity identification to offset threats of growing low-cost competition.
Identifying that competitive edge needs to be achieved in areas of waste reduction, a fluent production flow and high customer satisfaction rather than by tackling labour prices. Establishing new working methods by involving all levels of management and staff, leading to production and delivery taking place according to a fixed plan, resulting in 10% increase in production efficiency and 15% reduction in waste plus significantly increasing client satisfaction due to improved delivery accuracy and predictivity. Better control and management of production process facilitating digitalisation of supervision and maintenance of factory floor management.

Retail chain service concept implementation
Integration of new supermarket chain with previous customer base remaining unchanged. 
Conducting a study of strengths of previous chain’s concept and brand as well as its customer perception leads to finding that no significant change required to maintain client loyalty. Addressing the challenge to increase client purchase necessitates a detailed study of food and non-food product categories, including sales statistics at other comparable supermarkets and internal logistics. Improvement of shop concept slightly increases client base. Focusing on product placement in food categories and by reallocating to sales service the time freed up from diminishing inhouse logistics, the pilot supermarket achieved its first positive result in five years.
