The world of business is very competitive. To survive, companies have been forced to keep changing with the times. Business leaders understand the benefits of staying competitive. That is why it is no longer a surprise for a company to carry out process reorganization twice or three times within a year.

The employees of a company might not be objective enough to advise the top management on areas that need to be checked to manage revenue leakages. This is because the employee might be direct beneficiaries of the revenue leakages. But a consulting will give an objective report with objective recommendations.…
