Assessment

We visit and undertake an Optimal Business Health Day Event at your site. During this one day event, our experts will reveal the proven Fitco Consulting approach to transform your business.

Fitco-Consulting will guide and facilitate your team in achieving the Optimal Business Health Vision as necessary and will carry out progress review meetings with your management team to ensure the project is on track and delivering all the potential benefits.

The Business Health Day event

This will be an interactive session to discuss the loss making issues and the potential reasons for the constraints in your business.

Our team will demonstrate the practical, scientifically based methods we employ to ensure your ‘root cause’ issues are exposed and how to eliminate your undesirable effects (UDE’s).

We will describe the entire Fitco Consulting Optimal Business Health process step by step and the roles and responsibilities of all parties. 

We will also offer you the opportunity to have an Optimal Business Health analysis and an appointment to have it explained in detail, all free of charge.

We will organise the day and explain the principles of the Theory of Constraints (TOC), Six Sigma and Lean and how, through their application, an Optimal Business Health Vision can be developed.

Our Solution

We are highly expert in the methodologies of TOC, Lean and Six Sigma to ensure we come up with an optimal solution to the identified core conflict which the assessment process has identified.

The Three Methodologies we use

  1. TOC has been employed by many thousands of organisations to great effect by substantially increasing output through identifying and focusing efforts on system constraints. It has a clearly defined five step process to ensure huge benefits to all that employ it.
  2. Lean considers any resource or activity that does not produce value to be wasteful, maximising cash flow and reducing expenditure.
  3. Six Sigma is a business management strategy applied in many sectors of industry globally that seeks to remove errors and variability in both manufacturing and business processes.

 

Implementation

The length of the implementation will depend on the agreed outcome of the assessment phase. The tools and methodologies we will employ as appropriate are the following:

Fitco Consulting aims to empower and train as many people as necessary in our clients organisation to carry out the required changes. However, you can be assured of our total commitment to you to help ensure the changes are implemented effectively. 

Our  'No gain - No pain'  commitment guarantees this.

 

Cost Benefits

It is very important to us that you, our valuable clients, understand that we are determined to bring substantial increases to your companies overall profitability.

The Benefits we are likely to bring

Based on our experience, we expect to bring 80 to 90 % reductions in inventory, similar reductions in most products lead times, huge reductions in scrap stock levels, increased market share and most importantly huge profits.

The 'No Gain – No Pain' approach

So confident are we that our philosophy and approach is 'No Gain - No Pain'. This means we only want to be paid based on a percentage of the actual benefits we can bring to our clients. 

The Estimate of the Benefits

After the health check assessment we will explain fully and then come to agreement with our clients on improvements regarding lead time, delivery performance, quality control, etc. that our knowledge and expertise can do for bottom line profitability.

The Auditing Partnership

To help ensure that fair and reasonable measurements are made, we have partnered with a leading Beijing consultancy firm who specialise in accounting projects.

They will carry out a business audit at the project start and provide us with a report. We will then draw up a legally binding contract with you, the client, using some of the numbers from the auditors report.

You, our client, should finance the audit at the project start and Fitco should finance the audit at the project end.

A restatement of our ‘No Gain – No Pain’ offer

In conclusion, you can be assured that all we will cost your organisation unless we bring substantial benefits is the reasonable cost of an independent audit and our consultants travel and accommodation expenses during the project. 

We in effect will be working for free until the project finish and we can make this offer for we are very confident that the benefits we will bring you are going to be substantial as will our negotiated % share of the improvements.
