Deliverables: At the end of the performance audit, we will present our findings with recommendations and a draft of an improvement roadmap detailing actions that can be implemented in the short, medium and long term to further boost your results. These recommendations will confirm and/or challenge the top management's impressions and facilitate the appropriate decisions.

For certain specific cases, and since the health crisis, Marris Consulting can offer remote diagnostics.

How does the performance diagnostic work?

  • After the initial contact, a date is set, and some preliminary data is gathered. The performance diagnostic combines interviews, shop floor/office visits, observations and reality checks of specific data.

  • The feedback is provided directly to the top management and/or management committee at the end of the second day.

  • Extra feedback to other members of the organisation can be proposed for a later date.




Why does it work?

  • The overall performance is determined by just a few root causes – constraints – that should be identified and then either eliminated or better managed.

  • With over 17 years of experience, Marris Consulting has acquired a solid reputation of these sorts of rapid performance analysis. Companies are consistently surprised at the depth of understanding acquired in such a short time and the potential for rapid improvement that is revealed.
