7 Cogs framework powering business

We are committed to supporting our clients to overcome the issues that are impacting performance.  We know making changes takes effort, so the key is to identify where to focus to achieve the biggest improvements.  Unfortunately problem areas tend to be like icebergs, the impact of the issue is visible but there is much more beneath the surface. It is easy to get caught up fixing the visible issue and miss the real causes that sit below the surface.   

The Business Cogs '7 Cogs Framework' consists of the 7 cogs, that sit below the surface and drive performance.  We focus on strengthen the '7 Cogs' to deliver the improvements that are required.  

And there’s a bonus - improvements ripple to other parts of the business.  Why? Because the performance in the '7 Cogs' impacts work throughout the business.
