What Our Clients say

Money well spent; really I am not just saying that. You really do inspire confidence and deliver effective messages.

Health and Safety Manager, European Power Company

A complex task delivered on time and on budget; thank you for helping to clarify our way forward as a business. At a personal level I have also learnt a great deal from you.

Head Business Development, Rail Infrastructure Strategy Development

I learnt a great deal from TRIMENTIS about how to turn my sense of what the future could be into a strategy that captured the attention and enthusiasm of my colleagues.

Director, Health, Safety and Environment, International Infrastructure Construction

Until we were taken through this process, we hadn’t fully appreciated the potential for our business. This experience has instilled a new excitement in the team although I must say it is tinged with some trepidation.

General Manager, Business-to-Business Market

Our business plan was to an impressive City investors standard that enabled our internal stakeholders … my bosses … make their critical investment decisions confidently, job done thank you!

Director Rail, Business Unit within an International Group

I appreciated the non-confrontational yet rigorous manner in which this study was undertaken. Thank you for delivering the result quickly and professionally.

CEO, International Business headquartered in the UK

We carried the changes through positively, managing the conflict between our internal customer satisfaction and initial delivery, establishing a new era of trust versus the control that went before.

Director Human Resources Operations, Global Wireless Carrier

I cannot overstate how profound this journey has been for me. I can only thank my personal coach for the care and insight they have brought to this. Truly life changing, thank you.

Senior Manager, Major International Organisation

We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship and you have made a significant impact on our performance as a team. The bottom line is worth over £10 million to us. I am very grateful for the experience.

DIrector Customer Services, National Telecomms Operator

This important result in our CAT3 supplier assessment will not only lead directly to a positive contribution to the bottom line, but will also have a tangible lasting impact on our effectiveness as an organisation.

Senior Manager , Major International Engineering and Construction Group

We were impressed that you managed to get nearly 100% attendance at the review meetings although certain findings have not sat well with some of our senior managers. This feels like a really good opportunity to kick-start our efforts.

Group Head Change Management, Diverse Business serving a number of Public Sector Organisations

In hours we accomplished what normally takes weeks of meetings. We developed a clearer vision about what our project was to achieve and this was more widely shared than normal.

Commercial Director Civil Engineering, International Engineering and Construction Group

This initially inflicted a lot of pain on the business as we literally shut down whole sales teams to focus our efforts on the strategic priorities. Time has proven our severe decisions to be the right ones and now we can all look forward to a more stable future together.

Managing Director, Division within the large International Group

We had already set ourselves the stretch goal of achieving a top place in the J D Power survey. We had to do many things including process development work to achieve our goals, much of it to do with cultural changes. I’m very grateful for the experience TRIMENTIS has brought to us.

Customer Services Director , Global Wireless Carrier

I would like to thank you for helping during what has been a very stressful time. Having returned from short term leave as thoughtfully advised by yourselves, I am now back on top of the job and making good progress.

Divisional Head, International Business

We have worked together for about 2.5 years on a variety of assignments ranging from interim management, process management, team development through to work on the overall strategy and operational planning process. I am delighted to recommend them to you.

Customer Services Director, National Wireless Carrier

I was very sceptical when we started out on this work, trying to bring together functions that had been pulling in different directions for so long. I think we were all surprised in the end to see just how powerful it is to get people together on a regular basis to simply talk about the priorities.

Head of Product Management , Global Technology Company

Some of us had been focused on IT as the solution to our knowledge management requirements. However, it became clear that we were missing the people dimension in our thinking and I believe we now have a good chance to bring everyone together on one way forward for a change.

Head Knowledge Management, UK based International Group

The immediate benefit of implementing the platform has been in helping us to rapidly gain visibility and control of a critical business programme enabling us to deliver on time and in budget, and ultimately to create value for our client.

Operations Director, European Telecomms Operator

How improvements are made in terms of knowledge sharing

Performance on every level improves

Our Approach exploits the fact that by first clarifying and then satisfying the needs of key stakeholders, performance on every level improves.

Various studies have presented solid evidence that organisations using these principles radically improve their business effectiveness on a wide range of performance measures, significantly outperforming those that continue to manage through bottom-line controls alone.

Research shows that a key factor limiting organisational success is a systemic failure to provide effective development for people and teams in the fundamental skills of management and leadership.
