Management Reform of a European wide IP Training Institute
The institute was eager to improve its efficiency rate and to promote training courses throughout the E.U. in a cost effective manner. It was also keen to avoid duplication, streamline operations and to assure its courses have adequate impact.
We undertook a re-organisation of the institute and set up a ‘lean’ management approach to its various operational processes.
We estimate that our work helped the institute save costs of roughly 15% of its operational budget.

With the help of Oxfirst we could shed new light on our operations and save costs. Oxfirst was of great help to increase efficiency, put swift measures into place and assure staff buy in”Principal Director of a Pan European Training Institute for Intellectual Property
