Cost and Cash

We specialise in helping our clients build an organisation that proactively monitors, reviews and reduces costs in a systematic way. With extensive cost reduction consulting experience of more than 100 engagements in cost reduction and over $5bn of delivered cost savings, we have developed methodologies and intellectual property that can be applied to your business to drive rapid, sustained cost reduction.

Our site needed a major turnaround in a short timeframe. Partners in Performance really came through for us. They had an excellent process, which enabled us to identify opportunities to reduce total site cost by 21% in a couple of weeks. Every aspect of the organisation, from key operating functions to all administrative functions, was addressed, and all cost categories were reviewed. The best part of the approach was the process [it] utilised. While they came up with lots of ideas and showed us different ways of operating the business, and creative ways of thinking about the business, they heavily involved the entire management team. The result was that the management team was fully engaged, made all the key decisions, and completely owned the process, the commitments and the results. The team has deep respect for the professional manner, effectiveness and humility with which Partners in Performance provided this support. The impact was significantly higher than any of us had expected. ALVARO, GENERAL MANAGER, COPPER MINING INDUSTRY
