Peter Dickinson operates through KUB as a high growth business coach. Peter helps companies improve their performance by working with the senior management team to identify the vision, develop the strategy to achieve the vision and then go on to help them identify actions for implementing change. This is an action centred approach with the team agreeing to specific actions for implementation at the end of each meeting.
Documentation is kept to a minimum as the emphasis is on analysis, understanding and action. Documentation for analysis uses one page documents to ensure that they are easy to understand and allow you to see the overall picture.
There are no reports. The support of a business coach means that change is driven at a pace decided by the company and a key part is that knowledge is transferred into the company so that over time key skills are gained when and where they are needed.
Over the last 12 years Peter has run the IT department of a manufacturing business and as a facilitator has helped to implement lean manufacturing and thinking in to production and the offices. On the IT side the server environment has been virtualised and disaster recovery moved on to the cloud. Digital Media projects include moving the web site to WordPress for faster and easier maintenance and foreign language support. A European web site has been set-up and all spares can be purchased on the web. Currently being piloted, trade customers can order products online. The online ordering system is integrated into the main systems so that orders can go seamlessly into production with the web carrying out all the checks and balances. Future developments include smart phone apps for the sales and engineering teams.
