We take on projects only when we believe our clients will achieve significant results. We tie a substantial portion of our fees to our clients’ achieving the targeted results. A few examples include:
Boeing documented hundreds of millions of dollars of savings through the application of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) to its Product Development Portfolio. We worked with Boeing to develop a Critical Chain solution that was simple and powerful enough to be deployed across the organization and produce dramatic improvements in a short period of time.
Delta Air Lines’ Catering Operations reported a 75% reduction in number of delays by applying TOC. Collaboration between Delta and its suppliers that run the catering operations, was critical to the project’s success. This collaboration, unprecedented in the industry, was achieved by creating win-win contracts, establishing new rules of working together, and setting up agreements on transparency.
Utah State Hospital for Mental Health achieved a reduction in its waiting list of patients from ~100 to 15. The average wait times decreased from 168 days to 40, capacity increased 78% and discharges increased 69%. The project involved synchronizing all services to a clinically driven, patient-centered discharge date. It required changes in policies, doctor and psychiatrists’ behavior, and unprecedented collaboration with the courts.
