About Oakland

Oakland Consulting 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.

We have always been committed to bringing the latest thinking to our clients – creating pragmatic and sustainable solutions. Our work over recent years has provided approaches to improving the competitiveness, effectiveness and flexibility of entire organisations. We recognise that for your organisation and its partners to be truly effective and efficient, each part must work properly together towards the same goals. We can help your organisation develop ways of avoiding wasted effort by bringing everyone into the ‘improvement journey’.

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, represent an investment and deliver bottom-line benefits. We have a track record of achievement and are confident about the predictions we make.

We work directly and collaboratively with you – you have direct access to a dedicated senior team.

Our people are friendly, accessible, straight-talking and always happy to help. We keep lines of communication clear and straight-forward, giving you access to the people you work with, and provide unobtrusive support from start to finish. Each consultant takes direct responsibility for your project.

Our work leaves you able to stand on your own two feet

Our aim is to ensure that positive changes are made and sustained – we leave our clients with the capability to continue improving. Our work is always challenging, insightful and enjoyable. We believe that you should enjoy the experience of working with Oakland – we will challenge you and develop insights that are not always comfortable to hear – but the experience will always be a positive one.

We act quickly, decisively and confidently

We are a team of specialist individuals with a shared passion for making a tangible, positive difference. Because we are experts we get to the core issues very quickly and save excess analysis and elapsed time. Our knowledge base and long history of engagements gives us access to a lot of best practice knowledge and sources of benchmarks.

We embed sustainable thinking into our business and your projects

We have a well-developed and comprehensive approach to environmental issues in general and carbon management issues in particular. We recognise that green concerns are an integral part of our mission.

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.
