The APO Advantage

Business Leaders don’t call us for the easy stuff. They call us when things hit the fan. They call us for the seemingly unsolvable problems.

We have the tools and techniques to figure out complex business problems… and the simple ones as well. Sometimes you are too close to the problem to see it, or simply don’t have the bandwidth or skill set to get the problems solved, but we do and we will prove it to you.

We don’t just advise – we get involved, fix it, and make sure it stays fixed.

To get a process optimized you need to understand the constraints, complexities, and independencies that exist in dynamic systems.

When we talk “optimization” we mean optimization.

We use advanced tools such as Simulation Modeling to pick up where Lean and Six Sigma leave off. Lean and Six Sigma are looking at a snapshot in time, linear, with a limited explanation of interdependencies. The world doesn’t really work that way. We have a Suite of optimization tools that typical Lean or Six Sigma practitioners do not even consider, and that’s why we are successful.

We facilitate your improvement initiatives.

We work with you to solve the problems that we identify in our analyses. This allows you to see the actual value be realized from the analysis. We don’t just leave you with a report, we leave you with results.

We work with your people.

This may sound intuitive, but let us explain. We will not descend with fifty consultants to your organization. You will get one or a small handful at most. Why? You don’t need more than that. The answer lies within your process and with your people. We form a Team of your best and brightest and get to work on solving the problem using our knowledge, experience, methodologies, and technology. You are left with an experienced Team of people that know how to approach a complex business problem and solve it. Oh by the way, we can train and certify them along the way using the project as the capstone for certification.
