Rapid Cost Reduction Right Now, with “Extreme Lean”!

...the question is not IF but HOW!

We realize that you need to get costs down today. We also realize that you need to execute in a way that enables a longer-term Lean vision and a continuous improvement culture to be developed. We can help you achieve both right now! In fact we GUARANTEE IT!

The Empowered Performance LLC, “Extreme Lean” Consulting Services Team led by Michael Stickler is comprised of experts in intelligently applying Lean techniques to immediately reduce the cost of operation RIGHT NOW!

In a stable or growing business climate, the focus is correctly on increasing organizational capabilities, along with establishing a self-regulating, self-sustaining organization that will achieve continuing growth and sustained success. But in times of economic stress, The Empowered Performance LLC, “Extreme Lean” approach can be used to help facilitate a rapid cost cutting strategy, while at the same time building a longer-term plan focused on increasing organizational capabilities. This powerful combination will allow your organization to get immediate short-term benefit from your “Extreme Lean” approach while building a strategic plan and deployment program that will ensure long-term sustainability and success.

Yes, times are tough, this is not the first time, and it won’t be the last time! We are constantly being bombarded by the media with news about quarterly losses and minute-by-minute accounts of the declining markets. And, if you believe what the experts are saying things could get worse before they get better. The good news is that we are starting to hear more and more positives.

Ultimately, What Kind of Organization Will You Be?

What must you do to ensure your organizations survival? The way an organization answers this question will reveal much about the type of organization that will emerge as our economy improves…

Some organizations will “batten down the hatches” and ride out the storm. Others will keep moving forward…training their people and pushing their continuous improvement initiatives to the next level.

As the economic climate improves and it will, those organizations that opted to batten down and ride out the storm will find themselves in much the same position they are today. While those organizations that opted to keep moving forward will be leaders in their industries.

Together we can ensure your organization is positioned to dominate the future.
