All companies are naturally interested in continuously increasing efficiency. However, many companies face the sudden need to cut substantial costs rapidly due to an internal or external event. The ambition could be as high as 15-30%, while maintaining or improving service levels. This is not an easy task, e.g.,:
- How should a useful baseline for operations improvement be constructed?
- How are high impact savings initiatives identified?
- What is the true implementation difficulty of each initiative?
- How are FTEs related savings captured vs. non-FTE related savings?
- What can we do to make the savings sustainable, to make them "stick"?
