One of the common questions that gets asked as people talk is “What do you do?” I think most of us know what we do, and can explain it to people.

So when people ask me what I do I can tell them, “I am a business consultant that increases productivity and lowers labor costs.”

The next step, and the most powerful, is listening to the answers. Without listening innovation will never live. This is also the phase of innovation that involves creating the plan of action.
Next is ACTION, this is where experimentation puts new innovation into play and where the results are found, tested, and improved. This is the exciting part, whether it’s a success or failure. Like Thomas Edison, you must be prepared to fail. Learning comes from failure and should be expected. Failure should be also be painful, pain is what we learn from. I have spent more than 20 year experimenting, feeling the pain and finding what works. Good planing and experience can avoid experimentation and pain.
Once the learning is complete this where companies pull ahead of their competition and win the day. Increasing productivity and lowering labor cost are big parts of helping companies find the win.
With my 20 years of experience(from experimentation and pain) I can help significantly reduce
