Develop Consulting celebrates five years in business
As it reaches its five-year milestone, Develop Consulting has reflected on its achievements over that time. The last half-decade has seen the consultancy successfully support more than 300 projects, and rapidly grow its headcount as a result.
CEO Steve Boam said, “As we celebrate our five-year anniversary, I am incredibly proud of the Develop Consulting team and their hard work. Our growth and achievements are a testament to their dedication and expertise.
The last five years have seen firms across the UK and Europe respond to unprecedented change – while having to balance their finances – something which has seen the Lean experts at Develop Consulting come in for increasing demand. According to Boam, from its early days to the present, Develop Consulting has successfully supported over 50 clients since its launch.
Boam went on, “I also want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our clients, who have placed their trust in us. We look forward to continuing to deliver exceptional value and support for many years to come.”
These past clients have asked for help facilitating the completion of more than 300 improvement projects across more than 10 diverse industry sectors, including healthcare. The company’s footprint now extends from airports to residential buildings, general practice to super cars, and even unique projects like potato processions. At the same time, Develop Consulting also offers digital training for Lean principles to clients across the country, while supporting organisations in the healthcare, manufacturing and – most recently – aviation spaces, as they look to get the most from their resources.
These changes have helped the company to achieve a number of significant milestones since its inception. In particular, its headcount has undergone sustained growth, with more than 30 full-time staff now supplemented by an additional 60 trusted associates. According to Boam, this team “brings a wealth of diverse expertise and fresh perspectives, reinforcing Develop Consulting as a force to be reckoned with in the consultancy landscape”.
Looking ahead, Develop Consulting is keen not to rest on these laurels. It’s next key milestone is its ongoing pursuit of the ambitious goal to achieve £1 billion in savings for its clients – reflecting the company’s “unwavering dedication to helping clients go further and achieve their objectives”.
