The organisation needed to make cost savings of 20% across its business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); to create a simpler, more coherent structure and workflows; and to reshape in order to focus on key opportunities.
We brought together a team of specialists to identify where and how these savings could be achieved and to develop a clear roadmap for change. Challenging their convention, we helped the executive team define the new organisational structure and mobilised a team of internal ‘change makers’ across the company’s EMEA locations, who were responsible for identifying opportunities for improvement across the creative, editorial and corporate functions.
After an intensive two-month period of analysis, we developed an organisation design that has helped to save £20 million through restructuring and a further £8 million through other initiatives. By simplifying administrative processes and pushing accountability back to the right people in the business, the organisation has greater agility to make better business decisions for the future. Through working closely together, we have shared knowledge to create lasting impact: this restructure is now being used as a platform for broader, global changes across the organisation.
