Sacher Associates have been helping organisations for over 30 years to develop strategies for change management, improve organisational culture, empower staff and develop their workforce and engage with employees.
The essential assumption underlying a team, (department/division/organisation), change management or performance improvement project is that given the right work environment or in other words, a high-performance culture than 97% of the population of large organisations will perform.
Monty is passionate about business improvement using teams. Through his workshops he ensures there is a consistent and unified sense of direction. He also ensures the team goals are aligned both horizontally and vertically. Monty is unique in his ability to work at all levels of the organisation, but some of his best results are at the grass root levels where the actual work gets done and where the biggest productivity gains can often be found. Monty is a change agent and his systemic approach ensures changes are embedded in the organisation and have long lasting positive effects.
Managing Director, Ricoh
Monty is an organisational and management expert. I do not use this word lightly. What he doesn't know about Change Management and the role of Culture in developing successful business outcomes is not worth knowing. He has written a book on the subject and has delivered increased productivity and profits in some of Australia's toughest work environments. Regularly reviewed in BRW, Monty has passion for what he does and it is positively infectious.
CEO,The Marketing Network
Generally our department has a much more unified sense of direction and purpose which is a vast improvement on the way things used to be. It is now very easy to measure, plot and graph our performance by individual, team and section as a whole. We all work smarter. We discuss things more. More operators want to be developed and show commitment and enthusiasm - a new level of consciousness has developed. The process has benefits way apart from just bottom line. And what's what has kept me admiring this man, his style and ways of thinking.
Plant Manager, Michel
Following a Sacher Associates project, customer satisfaction with service, as measured by an independent external organisation, improved from below average to equal number one, out of 18 regions. This level of performance was sustained for 15 months.
General Manager, Mountain District
The business has been set a different profit target and the continuing economic downturn, resulting in reduced revenue, reinforced this situation. The business was able to meet its profit target and return and 11% improvement on this target which, in financial terms, amounts to several millions of dollars.

Monty Sacher is a quiet achiever in the engine rooms of top companies, improving planning, productivity and performance. Sacher works from basics. His approach is steeped in common sense and practical solutions. His is a 'no frills', 'warts and all' approach to unlocking potential of people which enables the unique strengths of a business to be enhanced and its weaknesses overcome. He believes performance and quality solutions come from the detailed knowledge known only to workers and managers at every level.
However, Sacher's method is a disciplined, systematic approach drawn not only from years of practical experience across a wide range of business types, but also from an intelligent and detailed knowledge of business theory. The two combine in a powerful mix and a simply constructed, workable performance improvement system.
