A global manufacturing organization facing tough competition turned to Numerof to assess their internal organization and processes. Redefined roles, responsibilities, and competencies provided the necessary infrastructure for success.


  • This global engineering and manufacturing company faced increased competition in its core businesses, as well as pressure from emerging niche firms.


  • Numerof was initially engaged to assess the company’s business development, marketing, support and project management functions.
  • Based on our recommendations, we were asked to facilitate a restructuring of the client’s business development and associated processes.
  • We worked with the client to redefine core roles, responsibilities, and competencies for all related functions, and designed training architecture to support capability development.
  • We also defined and helped implement new processes and metrics to identify key market trends, which were used to initiate product and service design modifications.


  • Subsequent business improvement has been dramatic. Despite significant reduction in direct sales staff, overall sales performance and customer retention improved significantly.
  • Additionally, previously siloed groups within the company have adopted a more communicative and collaborative approach.
