The operational finance team for an international manufacturing company was in the middle of a major initiative to re-design their supply chain function when two key members of the team departed. Eager to keep the momentum going, they turned to Brillect to augment their team with experienced talent who could hit the ground running. Also on the wish list? A consultant with expertise in developing a compelling business case, ideally someone to lead the charge in collecting and presenting data to generate buy-in from company leaders.
Brillect placed a consultant with the company who jumped in and became an integral member of the team starting on day one. During the consultant’s five-month tenure, she became an extension of the team, supporting the supply chain initiative and ongoing operations while they recruited and hired two replacements. She even trained one of the new hires, freeing up time for her manager to focus on other priorities. Thanks to her well-rounded skill set, the consultant was able to dig into several side projects, including transitioning their financial reporting to a new organizational structure following a company-wide reorganization. As a result of the team’s efforts, the business case was approved, and the company moved forward with the transformation of its supply chain in the original timeframe expected. The client was thrilled with the results and the value the consultant brought to the table.
