Primo Consulting is a B-BBEE Level 2 change management company that was established by its founder in 1998.
The team has vast corporate and management experience – the MD having had 29 years of corporate experience, the last 15 years of which was as head of HR on one of AA PLC’s biggest mines, employing some 60 000 employees. It was during this period as HR manager that he managed to turnaround the mines’ medical schemes of some 30 000 members.
In addition, he managed (on a contract basis) a broiler operation, as well as a solar company. The team’s consulting experience covers wholesale, retail, and manufacturing sectors. In addition, we have facilitated strategic plans of Chambers of Commerce of both Klerksdorp and Potchefstroom, schools and a faculty of a university.
Our team consists of a MD who is a HR and Lean Six Sigma practitioner, a Strategic Facilitator, a CA and an Associate who is a member of the IIBA, and who also conducts IIBA endorsed courses on business analysis and workshop facilitation.
Primo Consulting’s methodology is to ensure that a strategic plan is in place and current, and that the architecture is aligned to the strategic objectives of the company so that the company’s ‘health’ can be assessed on the balanced scorecard basis. Thereafter, use is made of the scientific methodology of Six Sigma and business analysis, to sketch the AS-IS (the present situation) of the core processes.
Working alongside the various levels of management, using the scientific methodology of Lean Six Sigma, namely, DMIAC, business analysis and business process mapping and modelling techniques, as well as proven new applicable technologies, Primo Consulting would then identify and analyse opportunities for improvement, constructing a compelling business case for improvement, and establishing a baseline from which to measure improvements, in conjunction with management.
Working with subject matter experts and management teams, processes are redesigned and improvements are made to those areas where the biggest improvements are required, and which will impact on the strategic objectives of the company.
Our consultants facilitate all of the above within the framework of a change management programme. Its aims are threefold – to internalise redesigned processes, to obtain buy-in from all stakeholders, and to enable management teams to make use of the tools and methodologies in future.
