  • Simplify Complexity Services Overview

    Keys to Growth – “Keep it Simple and Sustainable (KISS)”

    Top performing companies grow +21-32% faster and cut operational costs by (12-19%) than their baseline competitors by reducing variation and simplify complexity.Cutting costs has long been the source of initiatives to reduce complexity. These initiatives typically focus on product and service portfolios, partners, suppliers and business processes. But reducing costs is just the tip of the “value iceberg” – our experience with clients has shown that by reducing complexity they can grow +21-32% faster than their competitors.

    How do you simplify complexity? Minimize variations.

    Too many variations – in services, products, the organization and in business cycle processes. By reducing these variations, companies can reduce costs. Though the savings can be significant, the largest benefits nearly always come from realigning your products to meet your customer’s needs, which translate into faster inventory turn, greater customer satisfaction, and improved margins.

    Organizational Effectiveness

    “After two decades of organic growth, many of our managers in the organization were starting to see a chronic problem. Our operations had become too complex to manage. Our executive leadership agreed and my department was assigned to lead the effort. We reached out to WGA to help us identify and prioritize meaningful simplification opportunities. They worked with us to facilitate designing, planning and implementing all aspects of the program. The results were incredible, we consolidated and reduced over 950+ global positions and eliminated over 7000+ waste and bottleneck problems. We also consolidated and relocated three of our manufacturing centers into one lower cost location. The bottom line results of WGA’s services were outstanding!”

    Corporate Strategy and Planning

    “3 Years after purchasing two smaller competitors in our industry, our executive leadership team were struggling to see the cost savings of our consolidation efforts. Two other strategy consulting firms were brought in to assist us in determining and fixing the problems. After we spent $18M USD in 6 months with limited success, we decided to end the contracts early with the two other firms. Our COO recommended that we call WGA. In just 3 months, WGA had developed a strategy to simplify our operational processes, merge overlapping business systems and consolidate our service offerings in various international operations. Since our first project, WGA remains our key trusted strategy and consulting partner for all of our business needs.”
