Energy Management Consultation
Communication is key...
At entro.py, we believe in communication. The first step to a fruitful collaboration is to understand your values, it is not about us pushing what we believe in, it is all about understanding where you are coming from and where you would like to go. We listen to you and the list of challenges you are currently facing.
Our goal is to transform these challenges into opportunities; from a holistic approach, we will present solutions that will help you address your issues. We know like you do there is no silver bullet that will answer all questions at once.
Consulting entro.py will help your organisation to improve its energy performance, primarily through the analysis of existing systems in place and the development of plans for improvement. You may draw upon the services of entro.py for a number of reasons, including gaining external (and presumably objective) advice and access to our consultants specialised expertise.
As a result of our exposure to and relationships with numerous organisations, entro.py is also said to be aware of industry best practices, although the transferability of such practices from one organisation to another may be limited by the specific nature of situation under consideration.
Entro.py may also provide development of:
- coaching skills
- technology implementation
- strategy development
- operational improvement services
Entro.py often brings its own proprietary methodologies or frameworks to guide the identification of problems, and can serve as the basis for recommendations for more effective or efficient ways of performing energy efficiency related tasks. Entro.py has always offered advice in addition to their traditional services.
The functions of entro.py services are commonly broken down into five task categories. Our consultants can function as bridges for information and knowledge, and that external consults can provide these bridging services more economically than client firms themselves. The benefit of entro.py's externality is that we have varied experience outside your company.
Entro.py has specialised skills on tasks that would involve high internal coordination costs for clients, such as organisation-wide changes or the implementation of energy efficiency. In addition, because of economies of scale, our focus and experience in gathering information worldwide and across industries renders our information search less costly than for you. In general various approaches to consulting can be thought of as lying somewhere along a continuum, with an expert or prescriptive approach at one end, and a facilitative approach at the other. In the expert approach, entro.py takes the role of expert, and provides expert advice or assistance to your organisation. With a facilitative approach, entro.py focuses less on specific or technical expert knowledge, and more on the process of consultation itself. Because of this focus on process, a facilitative approach is also often referred to as process consulting.
Entro.py is organised in a structured matrix, where one 'axis' describes a business function or type of consulting: for example, strategy, operations, technology, process improvement, etc. The second axis is an industry focus: for example, health, retail, education, government, etc. Together, these form a matrix, with entro.py occupying one or more 'cells' in the matrix. For example, one of our consultants may specialise in BMS operations for the retail industry, and another may focus on energy efficiency in the health sector. Specialisation consulting refers generally to the provision of business services, but there are numerous specialties, such as building management system consulting, energy efficiency consulting, virtual management consulting and others, many of which overlap, and most of which are offered by the larger diversified consultancies.
Currently, there are three main types of consulting firms, large, diversified organizations, medium-sized management consultancies and boutique firms that have focused areas of consulting expertise in specific industries, functional areas, technologies, or regions of the world, entro.py belongs to the third type. Entro.py is a small organisation focusing upon a few of such specialties. We have a ture-based' approach.
This emphasises language and alignment of people within an organisation to a common vision of the future of the organisation. The essential concept here is that the way people perform is seen to correlate to the way that the world occurs for them, and that future-based language could alter the way the future actually occurs for them. As a business service, entro.py remains highly cyclical and linked to overall economic conditions.
Our revenue model shifts to a more results-based pricing, either with fixed bids for defined deliverables or some form of results-based pricing in which entro.py would be paid a fraction of the value delivered.ternal consulting firms. This would ensure better delivery, quality, and overall operating relationships.
At entro.py we thrive on, avoiding overused buzzwords, not propagating management fads, and developing plans that are executable by you. We make sure that the advice we give today contains the fillings for potential gaps or inconsistencies that may prevent positive outcomes in the future. Entro.py will not deliver empty promises, nor "state the" or lack the experience upon which to base its advice.
Entro.py brings innovations not generic and "prepackaged" strategies and plans that are irrelevant to your particular issue. We prioritise our responsibilities, placing your firm’s interests at the same level as ours.
We promise to deliver on the sustainability of results. At the end of an engagement between you and entro.py, we will audit the project results for a period of time to ensure that our efforts are sustainable.
