CONSULTANCY

Kaleidoscope International is a niche Supply Chain Consultancy focused on significantly improving our customers profitability and accelerating transformations.

Our independence allows us to remain objective and gives us the freedom to innovate and work intuitively when the need arises; independence means we have no need to deliver off-the-shelf solutions or sell formulaic diagnostic products.  

Our Engagement

We partner collaboratively with your company to transform your supply chain capabilities into a formidable cutting-edge tool that you can use to profitably deliver your company strategies both now and in the future.

While we employ a 4-step process to deliver excellent results, our approach is based on flexibility. We tailor our methods according to your company’s needs and requirements, using proven tools and techniques, including fact-based diagnostics, with organisational, process, KPIs and infrastructure viewpoints.

We focus on the implementation of robust supply chain strategies, closely linked to your overall business strategy, that generates revenue growth, cuts unnecessary costs and waste, whilst enabling you to respond to volatile and rapidly changing scenarios in our global environment.

The strategies we develop together are integrated into your work processes without disruption. To achieve this the implementation stage is clearly mapped out and understood by everyone involved.

We are with you every step of the transformational supply chain journey. If you need assistance with implementation, we will remain ‘hands-on’ right to the end of the project and beyond. We don’t just walk away when our recommendations have been delivered and remain available after the project is successfully delivered.

We become a part of your organization’s culture during our collaboration and are therefore well placed to evaluate the training needs of personnel within the company. We design and deliver individualized in-company training to enhance the skills of your personnel, and we offer mentoring and coaching where necessary, so that you can leverage our expertise while we are present, leaving your company stronger and your personnel better off both personally and professionally when we have left.
