Cost reduction

When faced with complex financial, commercial and operational challenges, organisational leaders and owners turn to us to help them address issues and deliver material and sustained performance improvement. 

For many organisations, this means a rapid, ambitious reduction of their cost base. At times of heightened scrutiny and pressures, those who optimise this opportunity do so with a mindset to thrive, not just survive. This means making the hard decisions fast, but also thinking strategically about how to reposition as a financially viable organisation into the future.

C-suite support

C-suite executives and their teams operate at the epicentre of an organisation. They bring together financial, strategic and operational considerations to ensure a sound financial basis for sustained performance and growth.

When faced with challenges we bring a different mindset by diagnosing, planning and implementing holistic transformational change, as well as providing focused support to executives and their teams.

Public sector transformation

Public sector organisations are constantly seeking to deliver more with less. Balancing competing stakeholder interests, funding priorities and delivering sustainable improvement is critical. This requires careful consideration of factors, such as the required scale of change and risk appetite.

As departments, agencies and other public sector enterprises strive to improve efficiency and deliver better outcomes, our approach can assist by driving rapid and focused improvement of cultural, financial, and operational productivity.

Unlocking value in the workforce

Keeping your workforce engaged throughout a transformation process is critical. Whilst difficult decisions may need to be made, staff and unions deserve to be treated with respect, empathy and dignity.

In delivering an organisational turnaround, careful stakeholder and union engagement mitigates the possibility of industrial unrest and ensures the business is set up for sustained success.

Our experience

We solve strategic, financial, commercial and operational problems often considered by insiders to be too difficult to tackle, let alone fix. Inevitably, these issues must be addressed if the organisation is to move forward and our experience makes KordaMentha a valuable ally during these challenging times.

Our team has been entrusted with many high-profile and sensitive engagements, including the global turnaround of health chain Fitness First, the financial and operational transformation of legal firm Slater and Gordon, the operational shut down of Masters Home Improvement and the recovery of the Central Adelaide Local Health Network.
