Operational Efficiency

Operational efficiency provides the basis for profitable business. It can be broadly defined as organization’s capability to operate and deliver in the most efficient manner possible – the greater the operational efficiency, the more profitable a firm or investment is.

 

Our approach begins with pain-point recognition and root-cause analysis – company’s business units and capabilities from sales to operations should be aligned, described, measured and well-organized. 

 

Typical project usually utilizes one or more of the following methods:

 

  • IT Capability and Maturity Framework (IT-CMF™)

  • Melkki Application Rationalization Framework

  • Melkki Cost Optimization Framework

  • Melkki Agile Sourcing

  • Melkki Cloud Advisory Offering

From ideation to delivery

We have developed an iterative, industry agnostic method for structured development initiatives, that results commercially profitable business concepts.

 

The Ideation to Delivery concept builds on logical steps starting with value propositions, followed by proof of concept- and prototyping-phases. In the delivery phases operating model is defined, including partner and sourcing strategy followed by business case definition and live prototyping.

 

The concept has been already successfully applied in the construction, manufacturing and marine industries. 

Agile Sourcing

Agile sourcing is run through a combination of lean and agile principles. The main idea is to do the right things at the right times while cutting down the unnecessary tasks and work. The right things are those which create actual value for the customers.

By understanding the real needs of the business, we focus on ensuring the services and partners are the best fit for our customers. 

The process generates more relevant proposals, better understanding and easier negotiations while cutting outsourcing process times and costs. This is achieved also through frequent workshops to build commitment and trust among the parties involved.

The short iterations enable actions at any point of time and secure that changes in the business environment are taken into account in a timely manner. 

With Agile sourcing you can save +30%* of the time to reach an agreement, with significant improvement on costs and SLAs.

The benefits of Agile Sourcing are maximized when complemented by our Agile Contract.
