Every single organisation, function, or department to be efficient and effective needs to be properly managed. Business objectives properly set-up allows us to manage, control and achieve the company’s goals.
ADAPTIVE S.A.G. applies comprehensive models of management by objectives (MBO). We help to redefine strategies, tactical and operating plans adjusted to the market conditions and the best practices. It is crucial that the company’s strategy, vision, mission and values are linked with the goals or targets at every level (strategic, operations, etc.) within the organisation. We support strategic workshops and implementation of the recommended solutions along with the communication and change management process.
Structure makes a difference, right design of the business structure plays crucial role in effective management, deployment of activities, prioritisation of goals and effective internal communication.
We review and recommend the organisational structure, that is the most efficient and best fit to the specific company’s requirements. Within the scope of the project / or simply in the assessment we cover all departments and units, their tasks and targets, with a strong focus on the indicators defined in the BSC, linked with the company’s strategy and its organisational structure (Top-down approach). Our recommendation is adjusted to the expected timeframe of the project implementation i.e. multiannual blueprint, long-term strategic plans, and current operating plans.
The recommended corporate architecture is strongly supported by the HRM system, i.e.: job evaluation models, job descriptions, competency matrix, and remuneration and motivation system. We support the organisation in implementing proposed solutions, including the information materials and internal communication.
Keep your processes up-to-date, adapted to current market situation, benchmarked to the ones recognised globally or by your business as the best in class.
We perform an assessment of all processes within the company. We check whether they are up-to-date, what is their maturity level comparing to the other similar processes in the business. We validate how the company complies with the standards (processes and policies), whether the documentation is updated and complete, meaning contains all crucial elements, like points of internal controls, performance and lead-time indicators.
Every employee contributes to the development of the company they work for. However, only under condition they know what to do and when, and what are they accountable for.
We design operating models for the companies with the most effective accountability structure, where the competences within the company are perfectly allocated and used. Following the corporate strategy we help to create proper job descriptions (applicable for every function in the organisation), together with business plans and operations targets, e.g. RACI matrix:
“What you measure is what you get.” Robert S. Kaplan, David P. Norton, “The BSC - Measures That Drive Performance”, Harvard Business Review 1992
We build the complete operations management and control systems, compliant with the balanced scorecard (BSC). We assist organisations in the creation and implementation of the right set of performance measurements to capture all crucial aspects of running operations like: quality, timeliness, lead-time, correctness, etc. Together with companies we design the process management system (including: definition, frequency of review, comparison to targets and standards, deviations analysis and corrective action descriptions) in four fundamental aspects, i.e.: process excellence, finance, people management and customer relationship management.
The financial system, cash flow in particular, circulates like a blood in any living organism – organisation. Smart, regular as clockwork, financial system is the guarantee of the company’s growth.
We perform an assessment of efficiency and correctness of the financial and F&A systems in the company. Based on our experience we propose a redesign of the process that results in the improvement of financial captions, above all, cash flow. In our portfolio, among others, there are: harmonisation of goods and raw materials sourcing and contract terms, reporting system optimisation, F&A process automation, consolidation or outsourcing of certain process activities.
With the proper internal control framework the Board of Management can rest assured.
We review the existing internal control framework in terms of effectiveness, completeness and correctness of the system. As a result of this assessment we propose changes to the current shape of points of control and recommend complementary actions for identified deficiencies or gaps. This is supported by the report concluding the compliance or non-compliance status of the system control.
Only usage of modern, effective and time-saving methods of internal control framework brings the added value to the business.
ADAPTIVE S.A.G. can design and implement the effective systems of internal control. Continuous auditing, self auditing - these are the smart tools that help to increase the effectiveness and correctness of the system, optimising the cost of control execution, at the same time. On top of financial functions, we also perform the non-financial audits, for example in the IT area. We harmonise the documentation and archiving procedure, automate processes and steps of internal control.
Corporate functions like F&A, HR, IT, Facility management and administration or Procurement – so called Business Enabling Functions (BEFs) - guarantee smooth and seamless operation of a core business. In parallel with this role, the BEFs protect the organisation from going wrong, by guiding the business, indicating and following the internal procedures.
Based on our best practices we assist the reorganisation of BEFs to enable the right support of the operations. Investments like harmonised procedures, automation solutions and information exchange platforms will always pay dividends, i.e. raised cost effectiveness of supporting functions. The products portfolio is broad, for example we have at our disposal the “Self-service” solution available for all employees that gives ability to reconcile the business trip and travel expenses on their own or request the HR department for a certificate of employment, etc. We also support the procurement departments in building productive and effective processes and purchasing strategies, or selecting solid and competitive vendors. We transform the administration departments into the supporting units, which act as the business partners for their operations.
