Two Focus Areas
I founded Rob Tracy Consulting to help mid-market manufacturers improve profitability and business health. My services fall into two broad categories: Consulting and Operating Systems.
Sometimes manufacturer's leaders need a helping hand. Small companies, by their nature, cannot afford all of the specialized resources they need. At other times manufacturers need some extra bandwidth to tackle a difficult problem. When this happens, I can step in and work hand-in-hand with the leadership team.
I specialize in three areas:
- Profitability management (costing, pricing, product mix),
- Operations performance
- Strategic planning
An operating system is the set of tools, habits, and practices that run the business. Experience at top companies has shown that a proven system produces consistent, outstanding results.
Operating systems create alignment and focus for everyone in the company, and when everyone is stroking in the same direction, great things happen.
Your business is unique and it deserves an operating system that is tailored to your specific needs. I have deep experience setting up and using operating systems, and I can help you create the perfect solution for your needs.
Leadership is Tough but Rewarding!
Leadership teams have a difficult job because they are faced with pressures from diverse and competing stakeholders, such as customers, shareholders, employees, and the community. Navigating this complexity takes true leaders. It calls for people who are willing to stand at the front and be accountable for the company's overall health.
I founded my practice to walk side by side with these leaders to help them build the company they want.
