Partners in Performance: The company

Partners in Performance (PIP) is a global consulting company that specialises in performance improvement and delivers rapid, sustainable results to industrial, manufacturing, resource and service firms. The company is based in Sydney. PIP consultants do not only make recommendations to clients, but work with them on implementing changes and making sure the implementations work and provide benefit to the clients' businesses. Partners in Performance prides itself on the fact that, on average, it takes less than a month for clients to see payback for their investment in PIP's business consulting services.

PIP consultants call themselves Resultants and have extensive experience in implementation and operations management. They offer their clients training, which makes it easier for businesses to make performance improvement part of their company culture. A PIP team typically consists of a Senior Engagement Manager, several Area Engagement Managers, two Business Analysts (employed either by PIP or the client) per each Area Engagement Manager, and a Principal who oversees the assignment.
