Coca Cola Beverages Slovakia

Following an initial period of analysis, specific opportunities for improvements in productivity and cost reduction driven by not only right-sizing activities, but also changes to our management and planning activities were clearly identified by IMPAC team.

The subsequent changes were implemented by our personnel with the total support of IMPAC thus ensuring that ownership for the change process remained fully with our managers and supervisors which were provided with very specific targeted training to assists them in accomplishing their goals. The IMPAC approach to our business review has forced many of our managers to “re-think” the way they manage their teams to achieve their objectives.

The forecast savings identified by IMPAC have been achieved and in fact have exceeded their original estimates.

 McDonald’s Hungary

The Major focus of our joint efforts was to facilitate the behavior change and more business-like behavior of the Restaurant Managers and Operation Consultants, that would result in better bottom line corporate profit.

Through the introduction and application of the IMPAC 10000 Program over 32 restaurants we have achieved an average 20% productivity increase and we have been successful in inducing better compliance to McDonald’s standards and more effective utilization of management control systems. Expressed in financial terms, the project brought a 210% return of the initial investment on an annualized basis.

I can see positive changes in behavior of both the Operations Consultants and Restaurants managers:

  • They are able to plan for utilize the resources better
  • They are more proactive
  • They are able to identify opportunities for further improvement
  • They are more committed to our company goals

Electrolux

IMPAC functions not only as advisors, but also participated actively in the development and implementation of our new system. Managers at all levels have been involved in the process, and have taken responsibility to implement the agreed upon changes.

IMPAC represents a strong and systematical method that improves the companies bottom line. Throughout the project this method has been adapted to our specific situation and needs.

The channels of communication has been analysed and improved at all levels of the organization. The degree of communication between supervisors and coworkers has been improved significantly.

IMPAC’s management training has been closely tied to the new system installations that have taken place. This has contributed to a fairly painless implementation of the necessary changes.

In general we are convinced that the IMPAC project has improved productivity, and also given us valuable input for further development of Electrolux.
