Let’s meet up
Face to face is always the best way.
WAYDEN focuses all its energy on a key element of success: operational excellence. This is guaranteed throughout every phase of the project by the WAYDEN associate director and the interim manager.
In fact, we’ve designated an Operational Excellence Department to ensure the continuous internal improvement and quality of execution of our projects.
All our work methodologies are certified by Bureau Veritas, based on a set of key criteria which is redefined each year.
This obsession with excellence has a very positive impact on our performance in terms of productivity, efficiency and service quality.
To reinforce this commitment, we ensure that all WAYDEN associate directors come from the corporate world, where they have worked in leading operational functions.
They share our clients’ convictions and, most importantly, they know how to implement them.
We mobilise our team in record time to successfully support your transformation in each sector of activity. This operational excellence allows us to anticipate potential risks of your project and strengthen your company’s performance.
Understanding your challenges is essential to calibrate the project and find the most suitable interim manager. WAYDEN develops a precise set of specifications based on your history, your positioning, your sectors, your corporate culture and your project.
We evaluate the skills and motivations of the interim manager under the prism of the specifications drafted together. This selection step is crucial for the future success of your project. And it’s used to establish the two-person team, composed of the interim manager, who leads the project, and the WAYDEN associate director, who stays thoroughly involved.
The exchange you have with the WAYDEN interim manager and his or her associate director sets the broad outlines of the project and determines the main objectives. This step also allows us to validate the suitability of the people involved, which is essential to the success of your project.
The first 15 days of the project are decisive. The interim manager must understand and assimilate the company and its organisational structure in order to establish a detailed action plan. At the same time, they must get the teams operational to begin delivering results quickly.
The project is tracked and assessed via ongoing result scores, most often monthly. Progress management is at the heart of the success of the project. The WAYDEN associate director assists the interim manager on a daily basis.
At the end of the project, a finalisation meeting is held with all stakeholders. We provide a roadmap that contains all the elements necessary for a smooth transition. The WAYDEN associate director ensures the continuity of exchanges if needed.
Over the years, WAYDEN has developed solid experience across all types of industries and disciplines.
