How We Do It

We partner with our clients and work side-by-side with all levels of management and supervision.

All the EffCo projects are tailor made in close collaboration with our clients.

4Before making a proposal we will conduct a “Quick Scan” of our clients’ operation in order to define the different areas for improvement, the levels of resistance to change as well as the best approach for the transformation.

This “Quick Scan” is a dynamic process where we review our observations and data analysis with our clients to result in a detailed road map for the performance improvement program.

The “Quick Scan”:

  • Enables EffCo to formulate a tailor made proposal for your organization.
