Jordan Grand Prix today formally announced the appointment of Celerant Consulting, a leading management consultancy with significant industrial and automotive experience, to maximise the team's on and off-track performance in its long-term pursuit of Formula One success.

Celerant's brief is to examine, and work to improve, every aspect of Benson and Hedges Jordan Honda's operations. Already, in the early stages of the relationship, Celerant is helping Jordan minimise fault recurrence, speed up modifications between races and significantly reduce fault response times.

Commenting on the announcement, Jordan's Chief Operating Officer, John Putt, said, 'We are confident the changes and new ways of working, implemented with Celerant Consulting's assistance, will filter through to better team and race-day performance in the new season and in seasons to come. Thanks to their experience in the manufacturing and automotive industries, Celerant is the ideal partner to improve our all-round performance as a racing team.'

'Celerant Consulting is helping us evaluate how our working procedures operate. Their work with Jordan will play an important role in improving our performance on and off the track,' added Eddie Jordan.

Celerant Consulting specialises in optimising technical and organisational processes - quickly identifying improvement points and implementing changes for business success, working with companies such as: Alstom, BA Engineering, Ericsson, Philips, Scania, and Volvo.

Celerant CEO Ian Clarkson added: 'We are helping the Jordan Grand Prix team build on its fantastic foundations and vision to become a dominant Formula One team. Performance improvements resulting from our work will translate into vital championship points for Jordan. Of this we are sure!'
