Providing Insights to Manufacturing Leaders
Small and mid-size manufacturers will have times that they need specific expertise or additional bandwidth to tackle certain challenges. My consulting practice focuses on three areas:
It's easy to say "The price is set by the market", but putting that axiom into practice can be quite difficult. I help organizations look past traditional profitability metrics, like gross-margin, to understand product costs and profitability by product and customer so that a profit-driving pricing policy can be implemented.
Sometimes the gears of operations seem to get tangled up, resulting in poor customer service, increased costs, and high frustration levels with the team.
I help operations leadership teams to find the underlying cause of the issues and implement corrective actions. The solution is often more straightforward than it appears.
Companies need a strategy - the 3-5 year picture of where they are going. The creation of a strategy is one of the rare times for leaders to lift themselves out of being deep in the weeds of the business to look at the big picture.
I help organizations create a strategic plan that is straightforward, grounded, practical, and implementable.
