Values and Philosophy
DOFAS is a lean team with global reach, a no nonsense approach, low cost-base and fast delivery.
As independent consultants we understand and respect the interests and needs of all stakeholders, while looking for real program value and suggesting improvements where necessary. We know that many company’s engaged in DOF initiatives risk focusing too much on one of the three dimensions (people, processes, technology) at the expense of the others, which creates imbalances and, ultimately, increases the risk of lower-than-expected returns.
We believe that DOF results come with a holistic approach, balancing the companies needs with the people’s needs, involving disciplines on top of drilling, completions, production, refining, chemicals and information technology; like organization, leadership, culture, people management and continuous improvement (Lean Management) and we urge clients to take this wider focus to ensure best possible outcomes. This is nowadays also known as Business Transformation.
It’s precisely this correct mixture of technical and organizational skills that make DOFs successful, as best practice cases show, and DOFAS consultants have been and are deeply involved in those cases, adding and shaping new practices.
