Case Study 1 – Building and Construction (Business Assessment)

The Brief

Efficiency Works was engaged to assess the existing business against world class standards. Our assessment is based on the Australian Business Excellence Framework (ABEF) which uses world standards as its foundation rather than many “lighter” assessments that are available. A leader in their field locally the company wanted to know what needed to be done in order to claim world class status.

The Execution

The assessment took place in a day session that combined:

  • individual opinions on the businesses performance
  • observations of what actually happened in the workplace
  • a board room session getting a consensus of opinion as to the status of the business against world class criteria

Following the assessment workshop an action planning workshop was held to determine who had to do what by when in order to get closer to the world class standards desired.

The Results

Efficiency Works delivered a clear and actionable plan to get them closer to world class with great progress made towards this goal.
