Walking the talk
Oliver Wight doesn’t deal in theory. Before they joined Oliver Wight, every one of our partners played a major role in improving business performance at their organization through successful transformation projects. They have all held senior positions in well-known companies across diverse industries, countries and cultures.
Fresh thinking and grey-templed wisdom
Oliver Wight has a long-standing reputation for innovation and thought leadership. But we never, ever, rest on our laurels. We continually challenge the industry status quo and invest in our own learning, so you get the latest in fresh thinking around core business processes and their integration with people and technology.
Teach a man to fish...
…and you feed him for a lifetime; so the ancient Chinese proverb goes. Our approach is quite different from other consulting firms. Change isn’t something we do to you, or for you. Instead, we transfer our knowledge to you and your people through coaching, mentoring and education workshops, so you learn how to make improvements yourself and continue to do so, long after we have gone.
"IBP enabled us to align our sales strategy with our operational capability and supply chain design; we changed our business model completely"
