Every business is challenged with increasing competition and costs. Managers know that the key to long-term success is to align resources to satisfy customers while controlling costs. Many managers, and even consultants, jump at the chance to solve each problem, applying the latest organizational tool or leadership fad to control skyrocketing costs, boost employee performance, satisfy existing customers, and achieve operational excellence. Unfortunately, these quick-fix ideas and methods create a number of short-term gains, but ultimately fall flat months after the leaders or consultants have moved on to the next continuous improvement program.
That’s why the US Synthetic Consulting Group, a Shingo Prize winner in operational excellence, coaches business leaders, and their teams, in building a sustainable problem-solving culture. Mentoring managers in creating a stable environment where everyone can see and solve problems. Focusing on leadership development to improve business performance, control costs, increase innovation rates, and satisfy existing customers. Through onsite mentoring and coaching events, US Synthetic Consulting Group teaches business leaders and their teams to see how day-to-day behaviors, rather than tools, affect long-term sustainable success. Utilizing principles from the Toyota Production System (TPS), the US Synthetic Consulting Group works closely with business leaders and team members to recognize and apply the appropriate continuous improvement methodologies and Lean tools for any business problem—creating a culture that buys into change and frees people to take ownership for their own problem solving.
