Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.
The best vision is insight.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made.
To win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace.
If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.

Our Valued Clients
Our first-line managers gained valuable insight through the training modules and on-the-floor coaching led to a significant improvement of our operational KPIs.
Head: Personal Lines
I have worked with OIM at three different companies – this is a result of employees buying into the products and services, and implementing them and accepting responsibility for the outcomes. The fact that we continuously make use of OIM’s services is testimony to the outcomes achieved.”
Senior General Manager
The performance of the business increased significantly, which would not have happened without OIM. Efficiencies increased in especially the factories and we have enhanced visibility on indicators such as input, output and cost.
For us OIM’s engagement methodology is a valued transformational culture tool. We have seen that it can be successfully applied in a highly dispersed retail environment like ours and have identified a number of critical success factors for sustained roll-out.
The results far outweighed the costs expected from the project. The business benefits are stability, an increase in output, and achieving net reduction in operating costs. OIM was attentive to our needs and conducted itself professionally throughout – I would not hesitate to continue partnering with them.

What stands out is the flexibility of methodology and training, and the practical on-the-floor coaching which no-one else provides.
Senior Operational Manager
OIM has worked hand in hand with key resources and we continue to reap the rewards of their engagement. They have brought significant value to our business and I have seen the benefits of working with a consultancy that considers their clients to be true partners in the journey towards excellence.
