Establishing an Operational Excellence capability for a top ten pharmaceutical company to achieve ambitious cost and efficiency targets.
We partnered with Carphone Warehouse to deliver growth and major organisational transformation. We simplified the business to reduce operating costs by 15%. A new operating model led to a further £30m in savings in the following financial year.
Boxwood designed and led an efficiency programme that delivered 20% cost efficiencies in an existing contract thereby securing a further £1.2 billion eight-year contract.
“It’s human nature to dwell on why we shouldn’t do something. But often, it’s better to just get on with it and work through the obstacles”
“Our work with Boxwood not only helped us secure more work with National Grid, we have also introduced the innovations across other contracts – benefitting our clients and making us a more competitive organisation.”
“I believe there were two key driving factors to the success of this programme: the joint Travelex/Boxwood team adopted a robust and consistent approach and plan to organizational announcements. This was coupled with a genuine understanding amongst the broader team of the future vision and strategy – and importantly, a belief that this is the right next step for Travelex.”
“Boxwood were much more than consultants. They were partners who invested time to really understand our business and they shared our ambitions for all our stakeholders - our people, our customers, and our community - and were every bit as committed as we were to achieving them. Their commitment and focus helped us through some very big, and sometimes very difficult, decisions - and enabled us to create the foundation for a lasting legacy.”
“The passion, capability and execution skills of the Boxwood team have made a difference since day one. Without their help we would not have been able to accomplish as much as we have in such a short space of time.”
“Boxwood left a lasting legacy in the business. They have helped us deliver our goals over the last year, but their key achievement was to engage the whole organization in the necessary change and make it happen through our own people who now have a real ownership for the new ways of working.”
“You guys care more about our business than our own employees.”
“It has been a very challenging and successful six months. The Board are delighted with the huge progress made and I look forward to working with you to help us deliver the transformation we have embarked on.”
“The publishing business has gone from strength to strength – we are driving growth into markets that people were only too ready to write off. We have come a very long way in a very short period of time.”
“This has been amazing. I have never seen the leadership work together like this before.”
Boxwood’s work has been recognised by prestigious industry awards thirteen times in the past ten years. Most recently we were Highly Commended for our work at the 2015 MCA Awards for our work with Arco. In 2014 we won Project of the Year, as well as the category award for Performance Improvement in the Private Sector for our work with Balfour Beatty. We were also Highly Commended in Change Management in the Private Sector for our work with Guardian News & Media. We were shortlisted for the Strategy Award for our work with Travelex.
