Business Solutions for Your Profitable Future



Our Profit Improvement Process model is uniquely effective because it increases profitable revenue and supports innovation simultaneous with cost reduction

A few examples:

  1. Over $5,000,000 in profits for a small business unit of a large company
  2. In excess of $7,500,000 profits for the first year in a continuous improvement program for a large company
  3. Doubled profits for a $20,000,000 business in less than a year
  4. Generated cost reduction and profit improvement projects worth an estimated $15,000,000 per year with a mid-sized company
  5. Revitalized a 10-year old cost reduction program and more than doubled the results in less than one year - most of which came from new revenue initiatives


Our Cost Reduction and Profit Improvement Consulting:

  1. Reduce costs quickly and effectively with high-impact working sessions
  2. Generate new profits from new revenues
  3. Reenergize and existing cost reduction program
  4. Transition a Six Sigma, Lean, or Lean Six Sigma program to the next generation of sustainable continuous profit improvement


We Accelerate Profit Growth

  1. Imagine for a moment what your company would do if:
  2. Your people came to you with solutions instead of problems.
  3. Collaboration was the order of the day rather than dissension.
  4. Profits were strong and increasing year after year.


Use a phased approach to test and refine profit improvement for your organization

  1. We use a phased stage gate approach so you stay in control
  2. Your management team manages the testing and refinement process
  3. We provide the time-tested guidance
  4. Test the training module and prove that it works for you - generate projects
  5. Evaluate the process, the projects and recommendations from the participants
  6. Refine the model to fit your organizational culture, mission, vision and strategic goals
  7. Prepare a roll-out plan - one business unit; one department at a time or broad scope


This approach assures that the process pays for itself and you are fully satisfied with the scope and direction that your initiative takes
