The challenge of fresh food production: applying Formula 1 precision to the food industry
Knowing what you are supposed to deliver. Fully focused on unexpected twists and turns along the way. Giving just a little more gas, or tapping on the brakes. Shifting gears in an instant, adjusting your course, and then full speed ahead. In the world of fresh food production, every day is a bit like a Formula 1 race. According to ARV Group Partner Ronald Visser, it's hard to imagine it could be any more hectic or dynamic.
The search for effective relief from growing pains in operations

Organizational development: Putting together the entire puzzle
When we recently conducted our Experience Workshop, there was little disagreement among the participants on the do's and don'ts of organizational development. So if it seems so obvious, why is it that change and improvement processes in organizations do not always lead to the hoped for success? It was an afternoon with lively discussions and familiar dilemmas. Arianne van Tongeren of Ontwikkelingspartners and Bartelt Blankenberg recall the workshop in their most recent blog.

Operations and private equity: from prejudice to nuance and shared interests
What changes are in store for operations when a private equity party takes over the organization? Individuals from both sides talked about this during one of ARV Group's Experience Workshops. In his blog, Roelant van Herwaarden looks back on a successful workshop, during which prejudices made way for nuance and mutual understanding: investor, owner or manager, the interests are virtually always the same.
