BUSINESS STRATEGY AND PROCESS IMPROVEMENT

We provide a critical outside perspective combined with a proven template and tools to support your strategy deployment efforts.  In addition, we provide a path to developing strong operational metrics and benchmark the data to support monitoring for business improvement.

Lean & Six Sigma Technical Problem Solving

Why Hire an External Technical Resource?

CRITICAL PROBLEM-SOLVING PROJECTS

When your company’s performance results are on the line and you need quick resolution to your toughest issues, you want an external resource to perform an unbiased assessment of an underperforming process and partner with your team to ensure that real improvement is achieved.

LACK OF INTERNAL RESOURCES

Oftentimes a company doesn’t have a suitable internal resource to take on a tough problem.  This can be due to labor constraints or training gaps.  We can help not only by taking on your problem-solving project during this period but also by mentoring a high potential employee to handle complex issues going forward.

TIME CONSTRAINTS

Don’t make the mistake of assuming your current resources can take on additional workload! When a permanent headcount add is unnecessary or hard to find on short notice, we can offer a short-term solution to give your team the time to focus on their current responsibilities.
