We know how make improvements sustainable. We’re experts at making changes stick.

We Bring Best Practices to the Middle Market

Middle market companies can frequently get big earnings gains by implementing proven management practices. We have this toolkit.

We employ experienced people with industry backgrounds, not career consultants. Our people typically have 10-35 years operating experience with companies that have a reputation for using best management practices.

We have expertise in three primary functional areas: commercial operations, manufacturing operations, and supply chain operations. We are not merely generalists, although many of our experienced operating staff have excellent general management perspective and experience. Nor do we focus on one narrow functional silo. We find the biggest opportunities in middle market companies usually do not fit neatly into functional silos.

We have proven methods and tools that add value to clients’ businesses. We’re not simply renting bodies.

  • We apply; we don’t theorize. We’re practitioners. We take proven ideas and implement them. We are up to date on current research and best management practices, but we’re not working to develop the next management fad.
