Project description

OilCo wanted to shift from a geocentric model to a global model to improve performance, but doing so presented significant cultural and logistical challenges. Bain helped OilCo map roles, update critical systems, standardize key processes and communicate clearly to business units. The result: The new, centralized organization was implemented ahead of schedule and with minimal disruption to the business.

Project features

  • Develop central organization template and case for change
  • Create and iterate business unit organization design, based on central guidance
  • Map existing roles to new organization, adhering to all HR and legal standards
  • Plan towards implementation of new organization
  • Project management of change management program
  • Develop action plan to embed new organization

The new organization was implemented in all units ahead of deadline with minimal disruption to existing business.

The clarified implications of the new org and increased role and process standardization helped:

  • Define process maps and decision rights for selected key processes
  • Document responsibilities for key roles

There are plans in place to continue transition over the next one to two years.

Transformation sparks financial leader's turnaround

Encumbered by high costs and an overextended business model, a well-established financial services company faced declining customer loyalty amid fierce competition. Consult Plus worked with company leadership on a multi-year transformation that cut more than $500 million in costs, re-defined strategy and helped the firm win the loyalty of its core customers—allowing it to regain its financial footing while its stock price skyrocketed. In an effort to expand into new markets, FinancialCo had lost sight of the customer segments that its business model could best serve. As a result, the company failed to innovate where it mattered most; losing business to market leaders with better service, or newcomers with better technology, or both. When the economy hit a downturn, this lack of focus translated into a decline of market cap of more than 75%. FinancialCo’s point of departure was a relatively strong one, thanks to its robust brand and solid capital structure, but aggressive competitors heightened urgency. Management needed to work on multiple fronts to right-size internal infrastructure while reaching out to the customers it needed to regain market share.

Revitalizing a utility's market position with customer loyalty

One of Europe’s largest utilities was steadily losing customers as consumers gained the right to select their energy supplier. To boost customer loyalty, Consult Plus helped UtilityCo transform itself into a customer-focused culture with an innovative loyalty strategy designed to better meet consumers’ needs while creating significant financial benefits for the future. UtilityCo faced erosion of its long-established leadership due to regulatory changes that redefined marketplace competition. With more suppliers pursuing them, customers raised their expectations and took advantage of attractive offers, including improved pricing and more flexible energy products. To curb the high customer churn rate in its retail business, Consult Plus worked with the utility’s CEO to improve customer loyalty through a comprehensive program, including cultural change.

Applying commercial excellence in chemicals

A global chemicals company with new private equity ownership enlisted Consult Plus to help the new partnership establish a foundation of growth, improved financial performance and upgraded capabilities across its businesses. Initial research identified significant opportunities in sales and marketing and, with Consult Plus support, the company set out to enhance how products were priced and sold to better reflect dynamic market conditions and the products' differentiated value. With quality products and a substantial and loyal customer base across its businesses, ChemicalCo was well-positioned to be a market leader. However, the company did not always maximize value from its differentiated products and strong relationships and it also struggled to properly reflect the rapidly changing price of raw materials in its own pricing. Consult Plus brought a sharp focus on the commercial aspects of doing business to help ChemicalCo get closer to its customers and more disciplined about dynamically matching prices with customer needs, product value and underlying costs.
