The Oakland Institute for Business Research and Education

Innovation and staying at the forefront of knowledge has never been more crucial to the continuing success of any business.  The Oakland Institute is the business research and education division of the Oakland Group,  developing leading-edge thinking and insights to help embed real organisational change in today’s world.  Working in close alliance with our strategic partner, Leeds University Business School, and other business schools across Europe and in the Far East, we carry out rigorous, yet highly pragmatic research dedicated to the development of management thinking and organisational learning.  The practical application of this research has led to highly adaptable approaches and evidence-based best practices on what to do and how to do it, enabling the Oakland community to get the best outcomes for themselves and their organisations. 

The Oakland Institute continues to drive a high-impact research agenda that is tackling real world issues and developing approaches that can be deployed by organisations around the world.

The Oakland Group

The Oakland Group uses Quality, Operational Excellence, and Data and Analytics approaches to solve the hardest and most stubborn problems in our clients’ businesses. We are disrupting the marketplace by combining established Lean / Six Sigma with advanced analytics whilst using an agile approach to introduce APQP into new product and service environments.

We typically help organisations:

  • Solve real-world, messy problems, with data. We are outcome-led analysts using an agile approach to solve problems that result in sustainable changes
  • Design products and services that deliver consistently what customers want. Using the methods and techniques of advanced quality planning to design ‘right first-time’ products and services
  • Build operational systems that thrive in a world of continual change. Integrating the measurement and management of behaviours into the design of business systems and processes.

We do this by addressing the whole operational ecosystem aligning the processes, the data, the systems and the people to create sustainable change. We work across the private and public sectors, for clients facing complex operational and supply chain challenges.

We are independent and offer tailored solutions rather than pure off-the-peg methods. We share a belief and general approach but look at each and every client’s situation as a singular, unique challenge, measuring our success against the positive benefit we provide to you.
