Suretank is a world leading manufacturer of tanks and CCU’s (Cargo carrying units) for the offshore oil and gas industry, a bespoke pressure vessel manufacturer and a provider of engineered modular solutions to key industries such as Banking, Finance, Telecoms & Data Centres.
Rapid growth in the business resulted in the company facing issues with their production process. The challenge for LBSPartners was to develop a more strategic approach to improve efficiency and to maintain the company’s competitive advantage.
As part of a wider transformation programme, LBSPartners worked closely with Suretank’s management to develop a long-term business development strategy. Our team designed a tailored training programme to support Suretank’s strategic plan.
The first-step of the programme was to complete a Hoshin plan using the x-matrix to align the company’s long term strategic objectives with their annual goals. Company-wide and department-specific projects facilitated by LBSPartners were planned and completed to support the achievement of these objectives.
A five-year business plan was developed, along with a programme of transformation. This involved the implementation of training and development workshops, lean thinking, cultural change and process improvement. LBSPartners supported Suretank developing the leadership skills necessary to successfully complete their business transformation.
