We also have access to a large range of independent information sources and expertise to draw on as required to ensure the specific client needs are researched comprehensively before all assignments commence. As we expand the partnership program our aim is to increase the business consultancy knowledge base to include additional industry sectors.


With each assignment our goal is to achieve a holistic assessment of the client needs before taking action. Our experience for over 100 years gives our team the skills to ensure we provide a practical, reliable Action Plan covering:

  • Project Team selection
  • Strategic/Business Plan review covering the people, products (and services) and operating processes
  • Creation of an effective Communication Program for all stakeholders
  • Provision of Leadership Training for key staff of the client
  • Working with the client to determine Change Management Actions
  • Developing adequate Financial and Business Reporting to measure agreed outcomes from the Action Plan


The ability to achieve the outcomes for our customers is not a theoretical exercise. We believe in establishing measurable Key Performance Indicators to provide guidelines for continuous improvement. Whether you are an elite athlete or business professional, improvement in performance can only come from appraisal and reappraisal of the recommended actions. Some of the more identifiable Key Performance Indicators we use at the Lindfield Partners are:

  • Financial performance against the Budget – “make the numbers”
  • Customer Service performance against the Promise – “keeping customers happy”
  • Effectiveness and efficiency of the Supply Chain performance – “get the best result from suppliers”
  • Clear and unambiguous Reporting and Communication performance – “Keeping all stakeholders informed”
  • Compliance performance with all Statutory, Corporate, Workplace and Industrial Regulations – “Observe the law”
