Strategic planning

Business planning



Over 70% of executives say that it is more challenging to be a leader today than it was five years ago.

The need for broader knowledge sets, demand for skilled talent, information overload, change upon change, is making it difficult for many executives to focus on ensuring the business remains competitive.

New business models are occurring at a faster pace than ever before and technology is changing by the minute. This is why it is crucial that executives stay abreast of industry trends and be open to critical assessment of where the business needs to evolve.

Blue Lake Professionals exist to "help businesses achieve".

Performance Improvement

Process engineering

Performance improvement is focused on increasing outputs and improving efficiency for any given procedure or process. When you apply this methodology to the business as a whole you are formulating parameters for organisational development.

Procedural inefficiency can cost up to 80%, yes 80%, of your support costs. A recent engagement demonstrated that for the invoicing procedure, over a 30 year period, that so many layers had been added, that procedures contradicted each other and only key personnel knew when and how to invoice. We help clear the clutter.

Having well structured and well maintained functions within any organisation are core to ensuring the business is not spending extraordinary amounts of money to create new customers, implement new safety systems, install new technology and manage continuous improvement.

If the business is not going forward, it is going backwards.

Stakeholder commitment

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place".
-- George Bernard Shaw

Lack of communication is rated as the number one reason why people quit. It is definitely high on the list of why business influencers: staff, customers, board members, stakeholders, investors, community, public and government agencies; will disengage with you.

Communication is such a core part of relationships, yet we struggle to get it right.

Blue Lake Professionals can show you how to implement strategies and communication actions for clear, concise and consistent messaging to your influencers.

The workplace is set to dramatically change

There will be dramatic changes across the country's workplaces in 2018, with employees set to get better pay and entitlements.

Christie Hall and William Fussey of EY said in a joint article that employment law amendments planned by the new Labour-led Government would create "fundamental changes" to the country's workplaces. In particular, the rise of the minimum wage by 75c to $16.50 an hour from April 1 would be at the forefront of many employers' minds, the authors said.
