You may be looking for a quick point solution related to quality, delivery or cost. If you are experiencing less than optimal performance levels on one or more of your key programs and need to rapidly improve specific performance metrics we can help.
Triage and turnaround projects vary greatly from challenge to challenge, but all use a common framework for restoring your business to targeted performance. First, our experts leverage decades of experience to immediately contain the issue and “stop the bleeding”. As performance is stabilizing, we deploy proven practical problem-solving methodology to zero in on root causes so that we can develop and rapidly deploy countermeasures to enable turnaround. Finally, permanent and irreversible corrective actions are developed to ensure that the issues do not return and that improvements are sustainable.
We can support any or all of this process based on where you are in your turnaround initiative.
Triage projects are shorter-term engagements which typically last from 3 to 6 weeks. During that time, we will bring our experts in to address the issue, identify the root cause, contain it, and recommend permanent corrective actions. Here are some ways we can assist you:
