Business Optimisation

For many businesses, the process of aligning operational initiatives with strategic goals represents a major challenge. For example, the management of capital expenditure represents the majority of discretionary cash outflow, yet the decision-making and management processes surrounding capital expenditure are often relatively weak.

Application of optimisation disciplines can generate enormous improvements in free cash flow. The key steps are quantifying the contribution from each initiative to the firm’s goals, optimising (not prioritising) across the initiatives to generate the optimal portfolio, and managing delivery to ensure risks are controlled and maximum value is delivered.

Strong optimisation disciplines are essential to good governance in all businesses. d2e has applied these across a range of business problems which includes capital planning, brand management, and product innovation.

"I have worked with other consultants, but seldom have I seen a combination of such clear insight and pragmatism as I find with d2e."
