Think of us as the "Shark Tank" of consulting;

Most have Master-level degress in business, engineering, etc. and accompanying certifications.
Interview 100 self-acclaimed Black Belts or process improvement experts, ask even a few detailed questions,
and what you'll find are no more than hollow buzz words on a resume. Our team actually lives by the methodology

Our Master Black Belts walk the path of profitability.
We don't come in and meaninglessly process flow / value stream map the entire organization
or arbitrarily 5S areas and make people tape where the stapler goes on their desk.
A pretty shadow board showing where tools go is nice.
What's better is more frequently used tools closer to the point of use in a way that minimizes
motion, makes work easier, and therefore gains at least a soft cost save.
We transform the current state into a more profitable contained state.
Then we transform the contained state into a more profitable future state.
If any step would result in a less profitable condition or payback period greater than the company's cut off (generally 12 months),
then we don't make the change. Practicing in this manner has allowed us to save literally millions of dollar per year
in the industries below.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt in a high-tech manufacturing company where formal continuous improvement was a new concept. I was impressed with his ability to translate the concepts and skills needed to start down the path of the discipline in a way that was not only accessible to the employees, but excited them and moved many of them into being active, positive participants. I saw an immediate improvement in overall engagement, which helped in areas well beyond the tactical and functional areas included in the improvement project, itself.
Our Master Black Belt introduced improved quality and manufacturing processes. Our company was moving to become ISO certified. He and I, plus one other, came from the automotive side and certified in ISO. Further, we had QS experience which was a more concentrated standard to allow all automotive companies to work to the same quality and manufacturing standard. He was also familiar with TS quality standards.
(For our 5S class), we had a great instructor, very knowledgeable! I had a great time learning and growing my mind to new ideas!
