Baby steps …

 

As we are fast approaching the end of our second year as an Employee Owned business, I am proud to say that we are starting to see good progress on the journey towards our strategic goals. These may be baby steps on an incredibly long journey, but we are at least moving forward. Some of the highlights would include the capture of new accounts, the regaining of lost accounts, successful new product launches and an expansion of our sales funnel.

 

The challenges we face in the short to medium term relate to preparing for and adjusting to a proliferation of our new products: productionisation challenges, manpower shortages, skills realignment, quality processes and procedures.

 

The turning of a new year affords us the opportunity to reset our teams and refocus our efforts. 2015 is the year where execution will come to the fore.

 

We know our purpose:

 

We are an International materials technology company who specialise in commercialising ideas and innovations through our global network of partners.

 

We have recently reset the activity streams that will deliver our long-term mission:

 

  • Deliver radically improved new product introductions through better Go-To-Market planning and execution

 

  • Develop the impact and efficacy of the Employee Forum to improve employee empowerment

 

  • Plan and deliver a program to dramatically improve operational performance

 

  • Continually ideate and deliver business and production innovations

 

 

We know where we are going and we know how to get there … The keys to our success will be the entire team reaching their milestones whilst helping each other along the way.

 

As a team, we look forward to going from “baby steps” to “great strides” in as short a period as possible.

Scott & Fyfe Limited has announced some significant governance changes effective as at 1.1.15.

 

A strategy review in November 2014 confirmed the innovation-led strategy at the heart of the company, enhanced by the employee engagement consequent on the move to employee ownership in January 2013. In order to promote the new ethos the strategic business unit (pod) leaders become business directors. Thus, Lesley Bayne (Operations), Paul McMullan (Composites), John Palmer (Loop), Roland Pap (Flooring), Michelle Quadrelli (Pipe Fabric Technology) are named Business Directors.

 

Company Chairman Professor Nick Kuenssberg said: “These developments reflect the increased participation of the management team in the formulation of strategy and delivery of results, mirroring the role of employees as owners and marking the transition from private to employee ownership.”
