What they say about us

Jeroen De Flander and Koen Schreurs, partners of the performance factory, have directly or indirectly been involved as former managing directors of GITP in projects with following clients of GITP. These quotes are related to those projects.

“As one of the largest IT divisions in the country, we knew we were facing a huge challenge. Creating increased value for our customers, while reducing IT cost by 30% and simultaneously preparing a pan-European services model was our 3 year target. We wanted to take the leadership with the management team, but also needed professional and discrete help to set-up and execute our ambitious 3-year Creating Value in Challenging Times programme.

More than 120 initiatives where prioritized, selected and grouped into 30 manageable programmes. The consultants successfully supported and actively coached our management team, our managers and project managers all along the journey, by providing practical advice, tested solutions and methodologies that definitely contributed to the realisation of our goals. The hands-on and co-management approach really made a difference!  Highly recommended.”

Ludo Van den Kerckhove, former CIO Electrabel,
GDFSuez group

“The survey has been a success for us. From the original tender process through the 3 surveys we’ve completed, it's been great to work with our chosen partner. They not only understand their areas of professional expertise, but they’ve worked very hard to understand our needs and they have the ability to help us with concrete support and advice for using the results. We’ve been expanding our target group since the first survey − our last survey involved over 8000 associates in more than 15 countries.”

Honda Motor Europe, UK

“Jeroen spoke to 300 senior executives at our annual strategy event. It’s was a great success! He’s an expert in the field and can bring a message across. If you need a Strategy Execution expert, look no further.”

“Their simple yet pragmatic workshop based approach really made us think about how to formulate our mission, vision and values of our company and departments. As a result, we now use these new inspiring strategic concepts in all our communication channels as well as in our management development programs.”

Jos Windelinckx, Director Human Resources & General Affairs

“Our bi-annual Honda associate survey indicated a need for an improved and transparent performance management process. The consultants guided us in defining and implementing a new process focusing on SMART objective setting and a more transparent individual evaluation process. After finalizing the objective setting step, we are now confident that we have a performance management process in place that will help us to strengthen our employee motivation during these challenging times.”

Dirk Roels, General Manager Operations,
Honda Access Europe

“As part of our European Management development Program, our managers went through a hands-on experience of applying the Balanced Scorecard best practices in their respective units. The practical tools and methodologies combined with the passion and enthusiasm of the facilitators really helped us raising our management and leadership capabilities.”

Brigitte Bestgen, EU HR Training & Development,
Bridgestone Europe

“We organised a seminar for our Ekonomika Alumni. The three speakers that were provided were great. We plan on working together again soon”

Roel Kox, Ekonomika Alumni,
University Leuven

“After a full review and redesign of our performance management cycle, we developed an ambitious plan to become best-in-class in Strategy Execution. Our plan is based on 3 crucial guiding principles: respect for the manager’s perspective, alignment of the organisational and individual performance cycles and - last but not least - go slow, but steady.

Now, 18 months down the road, the results are remarkable! An improved alignment between our strategic, budgetary and individual cycles, a systematic monitoring of our strategic progress through the implementation of structured scorecards in our departments and a dramatic improvement in the quality of our managers’ individual objectives … and the team is great to work with!”

Guy Beniada, CFO,
ING South-West Europe

“When I learned about the 8 during a workshop, I was surprised: a complex topic translated into a simple drawing. But it tends to stay with you. It becomes part of your vocabulary.”

Wim Wuyts, Head of Tax,

“A smooth integration within ATOS Worldline of the former BCC and Banksys activities was one of our main challenges in realizing our strategic objectives. Their complete yet very practical approach towards implementing change, taking into account the hard and soft side of change, really helped us to successfully integrate our sales departments into a single sales organization with a common vision and strategy. In short: hands-on consultants that really pushed us to take the right actions!”

Dirk De Cock, CEO,
ATOS Worldline Belgium

“After integrating several departments into an integrated monitoring body called the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC), we launched a large-scale improvement project under the name Food@Work. The processes of the FASFC were improved through a set of over 40 initiatives. From defining the initiatives to implementing them, we worked hand-in-hand with the consultants, under the guidance of the Federal Public Service Personnel and Organisation. Together, we brought this challenge to a successful conclusion. The results are something to see.”

Piet Vanthemsche, former Executive Director FASFC,
current Chairman of the Boerenbond
