It is a well-known fact that change internally or external in the work of business can lead to internal inefficiencies and loss of profit. EDG Group offer is based on the belief that organisations should be designed around the core processes which create value for customers and that flatter structures lead to better managerial performance, more highly motivated staff and a more agile overall business to compete in the world of business, plus adapt to change quickly.

Costs are key to any business, in that understanding to the micro level and match these costs of people and processes, to what the business wants to do for its customers. We do this in small teams with the client's staff, collecting and analysing data to create costed options for a new structure.

The end result is a slimmer, more agile and future proof organisation, with fewer but motivated people, more efficient processes and lower costs.

It is also very relevant to have systems in place that offer 360 degree visibility from customer feedback to review the operation from procurement to finished good as all are intrinsically linked to best practise and optimum performance.
The aim of process improvement is to allow an organisation to improve by observation and analysis of specific metrics, thus reducing its costs, making it more productive and improving its profitability and quality of service. EDG Group has demonstrated that processes and structures, enabling people to work smarter not harder, and getting functional departments to cooperate more smoothly on such activities as new product introduction and sales and operations planning.
