WHAT MAKES WOODWARD CONSULTING SO DIFFERENT?

 

We are a thriving productivity and implementation consultancy practice based in Scotland. All of our assignments are focused on innovation and sustainability using elements of Lean Six Sigma methodology, Management Process and Organisational Development. Our assignments improve efficiency and productivity and are financially measurable from the beginning of the project. Many of our assignments are cost neutral by the end of the project.

We aim to create the conditions in which improvements in performance can rapidly grow. It is our belief that all employees should take an active role and be responsible for the continuous cycle of improvement irrespective of their position within the company. The objective of any change-programme should elicit initiative and activity from within.

"I Was A Little Apprehensive Prior To Engaging Woodward Consulting Because We Are A Small Service-Based Business Rather Than A Large Oil And Gas Related Manufacturer.  However I Was Reassured On Meeting Andrew, Who Has  A Wide Range Of Experience And Within A Short Period Fully Understood Our Current Business Process And Some Of The Improvements We Could Make"

“Without The Support Of Andrew, We Would Have Been Unable To Deliver This Complex Programme Of Work. We Would Have Delayed Recovering Our Investment In Capital Equipment And Perhaps Not Achieved Our Target Benefits At All”

Zain Okhai

"Working With Andrew To Improve Our Overall Productivity Has Proven To Be A Very Useful Exercise, Opening Us Up To Alternative & Quite Straight Forward Techniques To Reduce Non Productive Time On Our Main Coating Line By A Significant Amount. In Addition To The Highlighted Savings Gained On This Line We Are Continuing With The Methods Learned To Make Other Improvements To Our Productivity In The Factory"

Andrew helped us design, run and review a ‘World Cafe’ event for the Westminster CAF Demonstrator Project. The concept was a new one for us but Andrew explained it well and did a great job in ensuring that the event was effective for our purposes and also did a fantastic job of facilitating the event on the day. Feedback from the day was very positive and we’re looking forward to inviting Andrew back to help us with a similar event in the near future

James Etheridge

Project Manager for the NHS / Westminster Digital CAF Demonstrator Project

Very efficient, worked to the task, worked within budget, was receptive and adapatable to change during the task. Was humorous but professional at all times. Had prepared and planned for the task. Kept the audience engaged and focussed at all times.

Tim Dalby

Senior Manager at NHS Digital

“Andrew and I were colleagues for two years running the key Efficiency Programme within the Department of Health. Andrew was a most experienced, reliable and effective consultant, focused on delivery and could operate at all levels and across all structures. His depth of expertise and experience was a major asset to both me and the Department and wherever he operated brought praise and admiration from those he supported.”
