About Oakland

Oakland helps clients realise their ambitions. We have a knack at getting to the heart of an issue quickly and working with clients to make a real difference. We add genuine value to clients who:

  • Are experiencing challenges with quality, cost and delivery issues
  • Want to introduce a world-leading business and quality strategy
  • Need to develop the capabilities of their teams

Oakland can help your organisation achieve the highest levels of performance. Drawing on thirty years of pioneering applied research coupled with practical hands-on experience working with some of Europe’s most successful organisations, we know how to turn knowledge into results.

The Oakland Institute is the research and education division of Oakland. We work in strategic partnership with leading business schools across the world to provide a rigorous, yet pragmatic and highly adaptable approach that embeds real change within organisations through the application of both leading edge and established knowledge and skills.

Our work is motivated by the optimum outcome for your organisation.

We are independent and offer tailored solutions rather than pure off-the-peg methods. We share a belief and general approach but look at each and every client’s situation as a singular, unique challenge, measuring our success against the positive benefit we provide to you.

We add value and represent a solid investment

Our clients demonstrate clear, tangible benefits from working with us. Our methods, systems and practices deliver bottom-line benefits year on year, long after our involvement is completed.

 Slavery & Human Trafficking statement

We are a small business based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Whilst our size excludes us from a legal duty to publish a Slavery and Human Trafficking statement, we recognise the damage slavery and human trafficking creates across the world. Hence our desire to publish this statement. We work with many large multi-national organisations that have global supply chains so whilst our impact may be small we want to support our clients in their work to eliminate this terrible activity.
