In order to increase team productivity, EPSA Operations & Procurement relies on dual expertise in team organization and people support: it is about overcoming or – better – avoiding resistance to change.
For this purpose, EPSA Operations & Procurement is developing a proven methodology of several sequences. It all starts with a pre-study in the form of an audit, which validates the existence of potential sources of productivity and can, in very rare cases, lead to a negative response from Epsa’s experts.
“This possibility is however exceptional, observes Régis Marique. Most often, we identify important sources of earnings due to multiple factors such as a lack of communication or training, an unfair distribution of resources … ”
These are all dysfunctions that EPSA Operations & Procurement will point out through a diagnosis, followed by a proposed methodology. Then comes the deployment phase of the project. It begins with organizational design work (carried out in two to four months, hand in hand with the client) and continues with the implementation of the plan (in 6 to 8 weeks), which cannot be carried out without change support work in order to make the new organization sustainable.
“Thus, the company is empowered and will pursue its productivity gains well beyond our intervention,” explains Régis Marique.
