Enabling more agile, valued agribusiness

The challenges

Modern agriculture has changed profoundly in the past two decades. Today, there are fewer larger firms from production through to market with more integration across value chains. However, scale alone provides no assurance of enduring success. Markets, competitors and industries are dynamic and constantly in flux. It means that competitive agribusiness firms must be quick to innovate and adapt strategies, operations and products to match a rapidly evolving and often disruptive business environment. Implementing incremental or internal changes is challenging enough. But new initiatives and changes that have flow-on implications for external parties, such as suppliers, make implementation far riskier. And the approaches used to lead internal changes often fail with external initiatives. With external change, the best-laid change plans are more vulnerable to delays, distortion or de-railing altogether, with slowing of innovation and damage to brands, reputation and shareholder value.

How we create value

Inovact Consulting specialises in design and implementation of complex change across primary industry businesses and industry service organisations. We have well-proven strategies and a practical understanding of what works (or doesn’t) to succeed with industry change and innovation. Our knowledge and experience of managing complex change means that we work effectively with you at the interface between agribusiness, industry and Government to design and implement lasting, positive change.

Unique approach

At the core of our success is the use of our SAVI methodology, which is a demand-based approach to achieve industry change and institutional innovation. Inovact employs SAVI from the outset of every project, enabling a tailored and tested process to achieve real and valued change. The method has proven successful in producing results for industry organisations and businesses in the meat processing, horticulture and pork industries, and most recently was successfully applied in the formation of a national peak body for the Australian seafood industry.

The success of SAVI is due to its emphasis on creating business value, while dramatically reducing risk and accelerating implementation.
