Following years of growth and impressive diversification, the local and global pressures of Covid-19 saw this entrepreneurial, quick service restauranteur and wholesaler act quickly in pressing the reset button on their plans for 2021 and beyond.
Working with the company's founders, Emmet developed a specifically adapted planning model - which we appropriately named 'Plan B'. We accompanied the model with two, highly structured planning sessions - one focussed on mapping impacts across the P&L and broader business - with another focussed on the identification of risks and opportunities identification, together with project re-prioritisation. We wrapped the outputs in a detailed, re-planning document complete with supporting narrative.
Our 'Plan B' model enabled the client's executive team to lay down a clear view of how their business had changed - and how they then needed to change themselves - following months of enormous, global upheaval. Our tailored approach limited the requirement for time-investment from an already stretched leadership group, whilst delivering a clear and concise replanning document that described the path forward and facilitated the communication of that plan across the organisation.
