Marina Expansion

A highland based yacht centre required assistance to create a defined site development plan that would achieve its growth aspirations whilst ensuring that business continued as normal.

VV delivered 3 one-day workshops capturing ideas for a phased end state commercial outlet layout.  Workshops constructively challenged each idea for optimised customer experience, efficient flow and space utilisation.

Ice Cream Story

A local ice cream manufacturer, who pride themselves in producing high quality ice cream products for wholesale and retail.  Due to increased growth, the company’s management recently moved to new premises but expansion has proved problematic due to layout and storage issues.  Viable Ventures delivered four workshops for key personnel that provided:

  • A phased plan for optimising production layout.
  • A software capacity planning tool for calculating storage requirements based on number of orders and sales.
  • A template for a Production Board to monitor weekly targets.
  • A Business Case for a future Capital Expenditure Program.
  • It was estimated by the management that this project had a value added of over £20K.


“At the start of this project we were focused on certain actions required to expand our premises.  The project has helped us execute these actions but has also delivered so much more.  We now have a more comprehensive set of goals for the development of our business.”

Strategic Technology Workshop

Viable Ventures delivers another successful Strategy Workshop for high growth technology company, helping them to develop an action plan to enable them to realign and optimise resources on existing business and to identify how they could successfully branch out into adjacent business sectors.  These new sectors include Oil & Gas, Digital Healthcare and Aviation Safety.
