Sigma Quality Consultancy – Improve.

Leaders in process & organizational optimization

TJ at a workshopOur believe is that any organization, whether small or big, can be transformed to a better functioning workplace that will improve customer relationships, employee happiness and financial performance.

We led project teams across 8 industries, 30 companies and over 100 projects that delivered performance improvements up to 50%.

A partner to improve the performance of your organization

We have deep knowledge of Lean Management (including McKinsey’s 5 lenses approach), Six Sigma, Reengineering and transformations in manufacturing and service companies.

We led project teams that improved constraints in organizations by using an extended toolkit of methodologies and with the collaboration of local subject matter experts. Typically we supported and guided organizations in solving these challenges:

    • Constraints in processes and organization leading to loss of sales opportunities, slow time to market launches, long delivery lead times and slow responses to customer inquiries (to name a few)
    • Low engagement of staff: lack of motivation, initiative and empowerment
    • Making the strategy work: Implement strategies and initiatives successfully  (e.g. get buy-in from all stakeholders, finish what you have started)

Our industry experience encompasses a broad range: Oil & Gas, Basic Materials, Industrials, Consumer Goods, Health Care, Telecommunications, Utilities and Financials.
