Results, not just better processes

At Oliver Wight, our core principles are centered around the importance of people, not just processes and tools. We call our approach to change management 'The Proven Path', which speaks for itself. Working with us means you have the comfort of knowing that hundreds of companies have successfully gone before you to achieve incredible results that have been sustained and augmented over many years.

Our role is to inspire, educate, facilitate, and mentor, providing insights and recognition for your achievements along the way. We'll give you honest feedback, encouragement, and recommendations to make sure you keep on track to reach your goals.

If you have the ambition, it is possible to make improvements that truly transform the performance of your organization and create more fulfilling roles for the people within it. We believe this can only be delivered by your own people.

Unlike other consulting firms, we believe that change isn't something we do to your organization, or for your organization. Instead, we transfer our knowledge to your own people through coaching, mentoring, and education workshops so you can learn how to continue to make improvements long after we have gone. We are proud to be recognized as a leading management consultancy (Financial Times UK’s Leading Management Consultants Special Report for 2022).

Apr 2023 Webinar

Workday/Supply Management Insider webinar

Join this live webinar as we discuss how getting on top of maverick spend can put procurement function in a stronger position during - or after - any recession.

Maverick spend continues to be an issue for many organizations. It happens for a variety of reasons, from a lack of education and tools to culture challenges. And it can have extreme consequences: according to Hackett research the average company loses more than 5 percent of negotiated value due to maverick spending.

Join the Supply Management Insider webinar, produced in partnership with Workday, as a group of experts, including Oliver Wight Partner Birgit Breitschuh, gather to discuss the importance of striking the right balance between getting as much spend as possible under management – and policed accordingly – with the resources it will take to design and enforce such arrangements.

Join the session to learn more about:
• The importance of improving operational efficiency
• How technology can help bring maverick spend under control
• How working closer with suppliers and procurement can create value
• Why recessions are a fantastic time for creative thinking
