“Why should you transform your operations? Success starts with determining the goal and added value for your business. With that in mind, it is important to get all involved management stakeholders (on corporate and site level) on board. HQ staff, plant managers, maintenance and operations managers but also IT managers and other relevant people in the organization need to be convinced of the necessity of the change program, see and agree that it will improve bottom-line results and then be able to sell it internally to their teams. Additionally, they need to be able to explain what is in it for them, for their role and their responsibilities. How will it make their jobs better? How will they add more value to the organization’s goals on a departmental and company level?”
MaxGrip’s view: The FMCG manufacturer devoted a lot of time to get everyone updated on and involved in the asset management excellence program. They also engaged with MaxGrip to help in deploying the program and demonstrate qualified and quantified improvements. The change program was not set up to simply reduce cost of maintenance; It was focused on how (better) asset management will bring lasting improvements to every layer of the organization.
