Organisational Design & Optimisation
The organisational design and optimisation experts at FTI Consulting review functional strategies and implement best practices across the organisation. This helps refine focus, reduce capability gaps, set objectives, streamline processes, enhance reporting protocols and lessen cost disparities for the short and long term.
As part of the organisational design and optimisation process, FTI Consulting reviews functional strategy, identifies leadership responsible for designing the organisation structure, sets objectives, develops organisation scenarios, selects the best structure, streamlines processes, enhances reporting protocols and optimises costs.
Our experts help clients better manage large and complex enterprise-wide initiatives. We introduce structure and practices that allow senior-level leadership, oversight and control to guide programmes to successful conclusions.
We help clients balance the quantity and quality of revenues while cultivating the right customer base and generating profitable growth. This is done through the following core processes:

FTI Consulting works with clients to analyse the order-to-cash process, focusing on work value analysis, process flows, organisation structure and cost reviews. This allows us to:

- Comprehensive supply chain assessment

The FTI Consulting methodology is applicable to manufacturing and services industries and is customisable to reflect industry needs and client life cycle-specific situations.
