The Rahimafrooz Group, one of Bangladesh’s top business groups, has retained MTI’s advisory services to work along and outline strategic initiatives to ensure overall organisational operational excellence.

The purpose of this consulting initiative was to interact with RDL’s top management and senior management, going to the level of doers to understand and appreciate the modus operandi in greater detail. This in turn enabled MTI to review and critically analyse the current processes, structure and systems of RDL with respect to the current and future strategic direction for RDL and accordingly design and recommend efficiencies and improvements to transform RDL into a vibrant organisation with performance and operational excellence at all levels. 

A cross-border MTI team of consultants and analysts has worked for this project to make it happen headed by MTIs Bahrain-based CEO Hilmy Cader, who was in Dhaka to launch MTI’’s recommendation to the top management of RDL and the Board of Directors.

RDL Chairman Mohamed Ismail said: “We have greatly benefited from our engagement with MTI Consulting. Their recommendations have helped us in the organisational restructuring required to achieve operational excellence.

“MTI’s experience working with the RDL team was a unique one and has been a great learning experience for MTI as well,” said MTI’s CEO Hilmy Cader.
