Total System Improvement

The 5-step FocusOPEX Change Management Framework is designed to achieve total system improvement now and in the future.  After the Analyze step, we provide a custom detailed plan based on your unique business environment that is implemented over the next 4 steps.  The analysis approach and improvement methods used will vary slightly depending on the business model: manufacturing, projects or distribution.

We understand that this approach will not appeal to everyone. Some of the techniques we employ may be counterintuitive or even go against long-held manufacturing beliefs. Einstein is credited with saying “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”. If you are open to a different kind of thinking to dramatically improve your operational performance, please contact us.
