How resilient are you?


Our preference is evidence over pronouncements, no matter how confidently they are made. But how much proof and at what cost? One can spend a lot of money for little effect.  

That’s why we built a Rapid Diagnostic for Operational Resilience. To answer this question, affordably. 

We look for common proof points, guiding and using your team to pull together the evidence, targeted by experience and best practice, that will demonstrate your organisation’s preparedness. Sometimes it results in a flurry of activity to fill in the gaps, a good outcome, and sometimes we see a gap that needs filling, also a good outcome. Independence matters.  

The Rapid approach is highly structured and virtual, intended to be a few weeks at most, containing the cost and impact on your team while highly valuable to your peace of mind. We have built fixed-fee, tailored versions for businesses, large and small, and the public sector: federal, state and local.  

It is unlikely that you will be able to do everything that might be done. We will deliver a prioritised action plan – the most effective actions for the most impact.  

If you run a business, public or private, you are in the business of managing risk. The choice of what to do is yours, but a choice to do nothing is gambling.  

Give us a call, we might just be the tool you need to add to your toolbox.

Gaining value in a commodity contract and deal negotiation

A government client sought to purchase telecomms services on behalf of itself and 50+ partner agencies, across 120 countries. When does a commodity contract become something more? Objective: To help the client clarify its evaluation process, prioritise its requirements, and negotiate a sustainable deal which would succeed for both parties over the long term. Kiah approach: Look […]

Sweating the asset – a public sector approach to allowing commercial use of a facility

The problem: Our public sector client operated a bulk fuels facility located alongside a public port. The facility, of several million litres, was a strategic facility for the client and provided a fuel reserve (in case commercial supply lines were interrupted). The client recognised that to continue operating the facility, would need specialist skills that were […]
