Your one-stop shop
for the improvement
of your organisation.
NSF Euro Consultants is an expert in improving efficiency within organisations.
Our goal: to support you in difficult or important times, to propose methods of improvement and to guide you in your development. Naturally we rely on our experience to do this, but most of all, we want to listen to you. We want to integrate the human values of your organisation and adapt ourselves to your way of being, to your story and to your possibilities. In this process we may apply several techniques.
1. Active listening
Before we start searching for the solution to a problem (and finding it), the problem must first be clearly defined. This is the state of play or audit phase: we listen, we ask the right questions, we measure the pulse of your business and we unravel inherent motives and causes.
We identify conflicting areas and try to pinpoint the number, range, frequency and interaction of internal dysfunctions. On this basis we are able to develop action plans and to set priorities.
2. PAPA (Priority Action Plan for Amelioration)
This technique makes us able to uncover and to act on directives that have an immediate effect on the economic situation of a company.
3. WWWWHW (WW)
Systematic questioning (Who? What? When? Where? How? Why? Whom with? What with?) is a simple but effective method to analyze organisational problems.
4. OMABI (Objective, Method, Action, Budget, Indicators)
The OMABI technique is used to ensure that individuals or groups reach their goals. At the same time, it is a philosophy implying joy of life, autonomy, creativity, responsibility and profitability of course.
This method comprises 5 essential steps:
- Define the objective/goal (O)
- Develop a Method to ensure the objective is reached (M)
- Determine the Actions to take (A)
- Draw up a Budget (B)
- Identify intermediate Indicators (I)
Omabi makes ecological economics possible. It is based on the rational use of human and material energy. We define it as “natural management”.
We have dedicated two books on it: “OMABI, user’s guide”, natural management, and “OMABI blues”, an interpretation of the myth of Odysseus permitting original organisational analyses.
The parable of the canoe
“6 rowers in a canoe are asked to row for the whole day. In the evening all rowers will be tired and the canoe will probably have been going round in circles.
Suppose we give 2 of these 6 rowers an other task: one will give directions (Objective) and hold the rudder, the other one will beat the rhythm ( Method).
Only 4 people will be rowing, but in the evening the travelled distance will be longer although less energy will have been spent.”
