  • Features of the Current State Customers information comes in to many possible locations. Lots of delays Lots of reworking information – key information not available when required. Don’t talk to each other across departments Authorisation based on value, not on risk – causing significant delays We have 77,500 applications for £5k or less (26%) • 64% are for SME customers Lean in Services 20 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009
  • Features of the Current State Customer doesn’t follow rules and neither do we! Risk averse at the moment – automatic underwriting not being applied. Using the wrong measures and targets – driving departmental behaviour. Cross-country targets and standards / criteria are different. Currently employing 1 FTE person just to input applications Lean in Services 21 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009

  • The Plan… We had already completed mapping work within the UK division and had identified major savings within their Order Fulfilment process Having improved the speed & quality of their existing offering to existing customers, they then needed to turn their attention to growing new business The plan was to map their current Sales Acquisition Process and look at designing an improved process at no additional cost to the business The longer term objective was to combine their two business streams into a single flexible process Lean in Services 27 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009

  • The Maps… Lean in Services 30 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009
  • What We Found… The business operated almost 100 % via brokers to whom they were paying commission of 15% direct to the brokers - £15.5m The brokers were not giving good value for money and were not accurately interpreting the VOC The conversion rate for enquiries was very low On the very odd occasion where they dealt with the customer direct, the level of conversion was very high – over 80% No cohesive marketing strategy to support the Sales Acquisition Process – hence low enquiry level The company were effectively order takers as opposed to order getters Lean in Services 31 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009

  • What We Did… We devised a new future state Sales Acquisition Process with the team which removed their sole reliance on brokers and enabled them to get a clear understanding of the Voice of the Customer We devised a new sales structure to help them achieve this We identified the skills required at each phase of the process We identified the need for measures & targets at each phase of the process The new process will enable major sales performance improvement at no additional cost to the business Lean in Services 33 © Professor Peter Hines, 2009
