We could write thousands of case studies and still not have ONE that exactly matches your unique situation. In fact, nothing will match your unique situation until we write your success story.

 

Want to know exactly how we can help you?  We need access to your place and two hours of your time.

In the mean time, here are a few success stories we’re particularly proud of.

 

 

WHEN THE MACHINE IS DOWN, THERE’S NO MONEY ROLLIN’ IN…

“When a machine goes down for our customers, they are down. We were dealing with longer and longer rebuild times, and this was very expensive for us and our customers. One week working with AMEND and we were able to produce a fantastic outcome. The end result was miraculous for us. We did not expect these kinds of results.”

WHEN MANY BECOME ONE…

The 4C team gets together to work on their business and to strengthen their team once each year. The 4C team had participated in more than a dozen team trainings before working with us. They had achieved what many others achieved – OK results. We weren’t interested in OK. We were only interested in outstanding. And that’s exactly what we worked to create and deliver for Julie and her team. [Read more…]

 

SHRINK AND EXPAND…at the same time!

St. Bernard Soap faced a real dilemma – “we must expand our business but costs need to get in line first so we can compete.”  There are always distractions and barriers to growth.  Success comes from how you handle them.  We worked with St. Bernard Soap’s senior leaders to make the needed corrections today (connected metrics to operational targets and improved throughput 11 percentage points) while also guiding them completely through their transition plan.  The Result: they are now in the process of driving double-digit growth for the next five years.

 

“HOW THE HECK DO WE KEEP UP WITH 20%+ GROWTH?”

This was the key question eating away at Enerfab’s leaders.  Growth is great…as long as you’re driving it.  It becomes a nightmare when it starts driving you.  We worked with Enerfab to increase their productivity by 10 percentage points, making it possible for them to hit their growth targets.  We also worked with senior leaders to add metrics, helping them better track their results and speed decision making.

 

A SERVICE BUSINESS GONE SOFT

Business was OK, not great.  Profits had declined and people were spread across the country.  The challenge – how to drive improvements even though the team was scattered.  We worked with leadership to drive double-digit profit margins and implement a flexible business model that adapted to their changing needs.  “AMEND provided the discipline and structure to make our business a leaner, more successful operation.  Our managers are working with better tools than ever before.”
