Technology enterprises and start-ups must think Lean and Agile to succeed, says Trajan Consulting

On the sidelines of GITEX Technology Week, the Middle East's leading advisory urges regional companies to cut operational waste in order to thrive 


DUBAI, UAE: As GITEX Technology Week showcases innovative companies and promising start-ups to active investors, one of the Middle East's longest established corporate advisories – Trajan Consulting – is urging technology enterprises to think 'Lean' and 'Agile' to be successful in the new era.

Lean and Agile principles promote focusing on work and the processes through which work flows, rather than the people responsible for the work.

"A Lean organisation is one that understands the importance of customer value and focuses its critical processes on increasing it," explained Catherine Granger, CEO, and Co-Founder of global business advisory Trajan Consulting.

"Success in today’s global marketplace hinges on the ability to deliver value, both to your customers and employees. Companies must find ways to move faster and deliver higher quality products and services while providing the structure and stability to develop a healthy organizational culture."

Trajan Consulting aims to support this exciting new generation of entrepreneurs – as well as established companies – as they attempt to make their mark in the world. The firm coaches and supports them through the many challenges that need navigating in order to become a truly world-class organisation.

The advisory has been operating across the Middle East since 2008, notably working with the likes of ADNOC in Abu Dhabi and ENOC in Dubai. It has just launched a pioneering new bespoke Fintech, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Lean / Agile division for the GCC. 

“We offer an integrated approach to projects, bringing together the required disciplines, project managers, and specialists,” explained Granger. “The new division aims to assist the heads of companies to eliminate all non-value-added activities and waste. We've already had a substantial amount of interest during GITEX in Dubai this week." 



Founded in 2008, Trajan Consulting is a leading global management/business consultancy with offices in the UK, Dubai, and Hong Kong. The Group has experience in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific. The main Middle Eastern hub is in Dubai and the aim is to expand this office to become the principal office in the Group, supporting its activities throughout the Middle East and Africa.
Trajan Consulting offers an integrated approach to projects, bringing together the required disciplines, project managers and specialists. It has recently launched a bespoke ISO/Lean Six Sigma, Agile and Risk Management division within its UAE geographical area.

Global high-level clients – corporate and government – work with Trajan Consulting for its in-depth experience, notably of working in the Oil & Gas field. The company has built a solid reputation and has robust testimonials and case studies; they are tried and tested. Trajan Consulting prides itself on a no-nonsense, extremely professional mentality when it comes to big projects and the team are all multilingual which helps in working across different cultures. 


Catherine Granger is a British entrepreneur and renowned international Thought Leader. After selling a highly successful management consultancy, in 2008 she realised there was a gap in the market for expert Lean Six Sigma and Agile training. 
 Catherine trained in Lean with Toyota in Japan, gaining her Six Sigma certification with Microsoft. She then worked with a plethora of organisations globally in multi-industry sectors, becoming a highly sought-after expert in her niche field.
One of her proudest achievements was being part of an award-winning programme for Nestle in Syria. Trajan Consulting’s Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) site won various awards and Catherine was amongst the first women to work in Saudi Arabian plants for Nestle.
Catherine also received excellent commendations from the CEO of Damco (part of Maersk) for high-cost savings in his plants in Hong Kong. She has also worked in Bangladesh for Aggreko, and for BP in Dubai and London.
