About Us

From its UK base KzA specialises in delivering performance optimisation and transformational improvement assignments to clients large and small based on it’s proven approach to business transformation.  We work in the UK, the EU and further afield as the need arises.

We are especially skilled and knowledgeable in the key area……an absolute critical success factor (CSF) to us……..of Target Operating Models.  To be credible in this space requires us to have a sound knowledge across the wide range of of functional areas and management disciplines to be found in the complex environments that business transformation initiatives normally cover.

Because of this we and our extensive network of associates need to have wide hybrid skills, extensive experience and multi-national / multi-cultural expertise.  In practice this means the majority of us have backgrounds in the large global consulting firms and large national or multi-national organisations.

Our unique service, offering practical help and advice on what is increasingly a core competence for competitive success, has established our place in the consulting industry.  This enables us to make a distinctive and substantial positive impact for our clients.
