Case: A building company
The director of a medium-sized real estate company with lots of experts starts a partnership with a small real estate company, forming a new legal entity.
Their goal is to buy old properties in big Dutch cities, converting them into studio flats which will be offered to people who are looking for small accommodations. They have rented a fully refurbished office, and hired staff to perform their duties. The automation can be supported by Microsoft Dynamics. However, they have forgotten about a crucial part. There is no business plan, no process descriptions, who is going to do what and when. After all it was so straightforward in the big company, that they just assumed: "Why shouldn't a start-up work in this way?"
Making an objective business plan within 4 weeks is an exceptional order. OFC was made the project owner and gave a great input to other experts in the current companies to complete the business plan. At the same time, contracts for clients needed to be made and we were in the exceptional circumstance to set up a company - which in fact existed already - but with a completely new structure, as if it was a start-up.
After the final approval of the business plan, the company was gradually successfully started, and we withdrew from the project. We provide ad hoc corrective measures so that our clients can focus on their core business.
