We take great care to ensure that we have an appropriate blend of operational and advisory experience. We have extensive commercial supply chain experience across a broad range of industries and at all levels of the process, both strategic and operational. Having implemented supply chain management (SCM) initiatives within industry as customers, and therefore having been held accountable by management for the outcomes, gives GRA first-hand insight into our partners’ requirements and challenges. We think that this makes us uniquely qualified to help our partners achieve their goals.
Our service offerings are complemented by a range of powerful and proven supply chain optimisation toolsets and performance reporting toolsets. This enables us to find greater sustainable opportunities faster using fact-based analyses that enable our clients to act with confidence.
The single most important factor in achieving the sustained success of a solution is the effective management of the culture – in other words, the people. If the people issue is not effectively addressed, there is no chance of on-going success and any investment in technology will be wasted. GRA has developed unique approaches to assist our partners with effective change management. We use techniques including extensive coaching and mentoring, coupled with the appropriate performance measurement, to ensure that people understand, embrace and enjoy learning the new disciplines. We work side-by-side with our partners throughout the implementation process. Consequently, the required behaviour is adopted and made a part of the business culture – thus ensuring the on-going success of the business improvements and their associated outcomes.
We provide a powerful and unique combination of skills and tools, and we are the only consulting firm in Australia with this end-to-end analysis, design & delivery capability.
GRA’s knowledge of the best practices in the end-to-end planning process is very impressive. With our Class A accreditation, Simplot already has an above average S&OP process embedded within the company, but GRA were able to suggest tangible improvements that will hopefully take Simplot to the next level in planning strategy and execution.
