Business Process Innovation & OptimisationHow to create differentiation in a commoditised education provider landscape
Many companies find themselves struggling to increase margins. They assume that their operations are optimised. These firms often don’t realise that their processes are actually designed to minimise management involvement rather maximise efficiency, quality and overall profit.
Companies that are forced to compete on cost for processes involving significant human capital are left with the option of 1) sacrificing profit margins or 2) competing for the best skilled operators in the labour market.
The catch 22 is that either strategy reduces the long term value of the business. Margin reductions can prompt a price war. Key people are highly sought after and they are difficult to retain cost effectively. Achieving cost reduction and quality improvements requires taking an oblique design approach.
