We Live our Name

French mathematician, Egyptologist and administrator who made many contributions to mathematical physics, and is remembered for the Fourier series.

Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier
(21 Mar 1768 - 16 May 1830)

Reducing complexity in a structured manner has been the focus of Fourier Analysis, as developed by Joseph Fourier, over centuries.

Translating technology offerings into business capability and reducing complexity in solving problem statements have been the foundation of the business offering from Fourier. Through the structured application of method, complexity is resolved. Solutions are designed and implemented for optimised business results and performance measures. The assignment of a balanced team of professionals ensures innovative thinking in the transformation process of addressing specific challenges.

These principles have been adopted and structured into the Fourier Approach, through which we bridge the gap between business objectives and technology in an innovative way.

The Fourier Way

The success of an organisation relies on their capability to repeatedly execute predictable processes to deliver quality services/products at a desired price to a buying market.

The Fourier Way focuses on the optimisation of an organisation by translating customer requirements and the business strategy into resilient operations to deliver quality products/service through processes and enabling and integrating the people, processes and technology.

In doing so, Fourier ensures that the workforce take accountability for delivering quality goods/services in an efficient manner to ensure resilience supported by suitable technology.

The Fourier Way Principles

The Fourier Way is a structured, continuous improvement methodology grounded in the Capability Maturity Model and guided by the Fourier Way Principles.

Growth, profitability and brand protection

Any organisation needs to strive for effectiveness and efficiency whilst continuously aiming to grow the business, maintain (or even increase) the profitability and protect its brand.

Design thorough, implement fast

The Fourier Way places an emphasis on the importance of a thorough design by designing properly before implementing the well designed solution.

Importance of standardised work

The Fourier Way acknowledges the importance of standardised work through the execution of documented, stable, repeatable, predictable processes.

The chicken principle (grass root decisions)

The Fourier Way strives to enable the workforce (chicken legs) to perform their duties whilst at the same time striving for a lean middle management layer (chicken body).

Simplified Metrics

“Only that which can be measured, can be understood and improved” however; metrics should be kept simple and unambiguous.

Multi level accountability

Accountability sits at all levels within the organisation and a well designed organisational structure will eliminate the need for a “check the checker” structure.

Continuous, rhythmic flow

The importance of a well designed flow of work forms an integral part of the approach towards optimisation of an environment.

Doing what is right

The principle of doing what is right (and not simply what is easy) shapes the thinking behind the Fourier Way.

Resilient solutions

The adaptability of the solution is key in an ever changing environment. Resilient solutions can adapt to change whilst still delivering on the core purpose and requirements.
