Innovation is a Must in Today’s Amazonian Environment
We must provide a superior customer experience while achieving win-win profitability to thrive in today’s Amazonian environment. Even though the vast majority of our manufacturing and distribution clients do not compete with Amazon, if Amazon can deliver same-day on a Sunday and change orders midstream, we cannot take 3 months to source materials from overseas and think our customers will wait patiently and never change their mind. Those days are long gone! Instead, we must innovate to remain competitive and grow market share and profitability simultaneously.
Our traditional tools are no longer sufficient! Instead of turning to traditional problem solving (finding root cause to return to standard levels of performance) and continuous improvement methodologies (delivering a continual series of small improvements over time) and patting ourselves on the back, we must divert substantial focus to igniting quick and dramatic improvements and raise the bar to new heights with innovation.
It is worth investing in experts to create an environment that sparks innovation and creativity and enables the successful instantiation of new ideas into the business systems so that dramatic results follow. This is where we come in with our unique combination of big picture combined with technical design and ROI viewpoint combined with a passion for contribution of the people, and we partner with you to turn innovation into line business results.
