Team level capability review

Capability review for a chemical plant

How we assessed whether the organisation had the right capabilities for the
modified chemical plant

Our client is one of the world’s largest manufacturer of the chemicals used for manufacturing plastic. The plant was expanded two years before and the latest technology in the manufacturing process was implemented. Notwithstanding the fact, the yield and flexibility of the manufacturing operations were steadily declining

The management needed to know if they had the right people capabilities to adapt to the major changes that had happened. Several options, including hiring new employees were considered. However new hires did not stay at their job for long. So the management solicited our professional expertise to do some targeted capability building and to assess the abilities of their engineers to meet the objectives and future challenges of their plant.

We, from Comaea Consulting conducted a capability assessment programme for the entire engineering team of the plant and did an organisational audit based on random sample of employees. Based on the findings of our reviews, the management chalked out an individual tailor-made development programme for the frontline engineers and operators of the plant. On its successful implementation, the yield and flexibility of the manufacturing operations picked up exponentially.

Helping a law firm in making a hiring decision at partner level

How we facilitated management bandwidth of a law firm for 25% growth year-on-year

Our client is one of the largest law firms in Asia. They recently decided to expand the team and scale up from top 20 slot to top 5 on their national law firm rankings. This required hiring a capable partners from outside.

They were in the process of ramping up partner pool and for their Banking and Insurance practice, narrowed down on two finalists with more or less equal book size and pedigree. Both the candidates displayed brilliant track record and therefore, our client company were not sure who would be the best fit to meet their future objectives, challenges, and expected scale of operations. So they invited Comaea Consulting to resolve this conundrum.

First, we defined the implications of strategy on partner level capability assessment and built a suitable capability model for selection of the right candidate. Then, we took both the candidates through a rigorous assessment process and provided them the necessary feedback on their performance. Then, we presented the client with a detailed report on each candidate and our clear recommendation as number 1 and 2 or the most preferred and the second best candidate backed by logical justification of our hiring decision. The client decided to go by our choice and the partner was invited on board. Soon, the new hire deepened the firm’s expertise, broadened its capabilities, brought in worthy clients and proved that our partner hiring effort was successful.
