AEIO: Aligned, Engaged and Innovative Organisations

Successful business transformation does not come from developing a great strategy. It is not simply a case of developing an excellent culture. It is not the result of having a compelling value proposition. It is not having the right performance metrics. It is not the quality of your people, your processes or your systems.

It is not the accuracy of your data, regardless of whether it’s big or small. Each one of these is crucially important, but each one alone is only part of the puzzle. Focusing on one of these without developing the others may in fact make things worse. Successful business transformation comes from an alignment of ALL of these items, working together in a synergistic fashion to create unstoppable momentum in the organisation where long and short term success not only feels possible; it feels inevitable. 

But it’s not easy… Fifteen years of constant research and development into the alignment of strategy, team dynamics, process excellence, metrics, systems, culture and leadership have brought me to the point whereby we now have a mature, repeatable method for helping organisations to transverse the journey from what Jim Collins called ‘Good to Great’.

We call it AEIO – Aligned, Engaged and Innovative Organisations, and it is our signature offering. 

So – is your business strategically and functionally aligned, passionately engaged and devastatingly innovative? If not, but that sounds like a place you’d like to work, then call us for a no-obligation chat about how we can help you get (and stay) there. From delivering executive overviews, through to on-site training and finally, when you are ready, to full, rapid implementations that make you the mover and shaker in your industry – we can adjust the content to fit your needs, time-frame and budget.  

When you’re ready to be the best, we’re ready.

Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Sean on a number of different projects through SEVEN. His knowledge and understanding of supply chain best practice is second to none, and uses this knowledge to help businesses extract maximum value out of their SAP enabled supply chains. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Peter Dent
Business Improvement Specialist
Transformation & Turnaround

“Sean presents a fascinating and compelling picture of the end-to-end supply chain of the future, from raw material extraction all the way through to the creation of new channels to market. He draws on real-life applications to demonstrate that innovation and disruptive technologies are already being leveraged in different sectors and geographies, and highlights the potential impact this may have on the world of work. The end result is a new and scary awareness that the future is already here, but not yet evenly distributed.”

Professor Alan Waller OBE

Sean has great commitment and integrity. I have had the pleasure of working with him in the Leadership team of the Supply Chain Council. Sean was a person that could be relied on - always. Furthermore, his ability to participate and add value to the content of the work was exceptional. He continues to give generously of his time and knowledge. I am honoured to have worked with Sean and trust that I will be able to continue to do so.”

“Sean is a highly accomplished management consultant with an in-depth knowledge of supply chain and a passion for business. I have had the pleasure of working with Sean for 4 years, where he has provided a range of services to myself and my team at BAE Land Systems; from leadership and SCOR training, to SAP advice and strategic support. Sean is a true professional, will always go the extra mile, and is a pleasure to do business with. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any business wishing to use his services.”

Gavin Hartland
Head of Supply Chain Development
BAE Systems

“I recruited Sean and his team to help improve the control of the SAP enabled Supply Chain within a c£500m turnover Defence business. Sean rapidly understood the root causes of the issues we were facing, and what processes, roles, responsibilities, and systems activities were needed to resolve them. When others would have simply gone for the quick win and addressed the symptoms, Sean was passionate about resolving the root cause by transforming the behaviours and capabilities of our teams, focusing our efforts on delivering greater value to our customers. Although working in one or two pilot areas, the enthusiasm and commitment that he and his team created carried over to other parts of the business, and we developed a 'self-help' culture, with best practices being shared from team to team. The starting point for our stakeholder community was more anti-change than any I have encountered in 28 years of business consultancy but I can honestly say that I have never seen any change programme develop the degree of 'pull' from a user community that was ultimately generated on this project. A phenomenal behavioural and attitude turnaround! Throughout the engagement Sean acted with integrity, passion and strived for excellence in what was at times a difficult and very challenging working environment”
