"Processes like this one, involving significant headcount reductions and major changes in roles and responsibilities, always expose organizations to stress and, as a consequence, can lead to a noticeable loss of business focus. In addition, restructurings never pass unnoticed for competitors thus creating a tougher working environment. In this case, the design and implementation were executed in record time and the outcomes were unanimously judged as the necessary ones to properly address a changing and demanding market environment. Proper, frequent and fluent communication and very effective coaching from the Project Owner and Project Manager were key to success."

Role: Management Consultant & Mentor (Marisa Guitart)
Approach : The objective of this project was to restructure the organisation in such a way that it could fully exploit its market opportunities. It took place over a year and a half and involved reviewing the existing organisation, defining a new business strategy, and then reshaping both the organisation and the business processes and BT/IT that supported it. Approximately 20% of the roles and responsibilities were changed and the project manager worked on site full time to drive every aspect of the change process. She then provided mentoring support for the new General Manager once the restructure had taken place.
Outcomes : The new organisation functioned much more efficiently and led to significant improvements in sales and overall results.
Key Points: Being based on site full time, and adopting a robust but human approach to the review process and the interpersonal communications involved, were key factors in developing the respect, openness and trust necessary to undertake an in-depth redesign and establish a properly functioning team.
"I have had the opportunity to work with Marisa as senior consultant and coacher and to benefit both from her skills and her strength of mind. Indeed, she brought me a decisive support in building a new organization and streamlining several processes. Marisa never forgets an objective, that’s why we achieved them all."
