Most NZ businesses have suffered losses due to the lockdowns, and many have been temporarily closed. Now you want to return to trading: manufacturing and shipping your goods, ordering materials and getting your teams working, and you cannot afford further loss of productivity. In fact, you want to seriously improve performance and reduce costs to make up for the recent losses. Do you have a structured approach for your business for an accelerated return to profitability?


Special Covid-19 Regional Business Partner Network (RBPN) funding is available for qualifying organisations.

How does it work?

We use our knowledge and proven methodology to walk you through a structured 3-step “Ready? Set? Go!” approach:


Remote Assessment and Qualification – No Cost, No Obligation

Through a video call we ask you 10 simple questions to determine whether you are unlocking your profitability potential. From enlisting your people in creating urgency, to identifying your ‘power’ customers and products, to knowing your bottlenecks and top costs; the 10 ‘Back to Profitability’ questions challenge your thinking and provide a call to action.


Prioritisation – No Cost, No Obligation

We agree on the priorities and show you a simple implementation plan. This plan will improve your profitability in the shortest amount of time. It involves the implementation of proven processes that world class organisations use to drive their leading performance. Not all practices will apply to your organisation and the plan will help you focus on what is most crucial for your business right now: productivity, efficiency and profitability.


Implementation – Value Guaranteed

The improvement work will be done by you and your team with our remote support. We will take time to explain and walk you through the implementation of each improvement practice. We will coach you and your team how to be successful.


Your Contribution

We ask you to be action-oriented and open-minded; be ready to roll up your sleeves to get going. Our team is available throughout the programme for phone calls or emails and respond rapidly. We have the ‘less more frequent’ approach and assist your with a combination of methods: Video walk-throughs, How-To Guides and Remote video calls.


This programme is fully funded by the Regional Business Partner Network (COVID-19 offering) under Business Continuity Planning for a qualifying organisation. Our RBPN provider number is 3048.
