25 Years of Proven Success

While today’s age of disruption and rapid digitization has companies rethinking their strategies, few know how to translate them into action and results. Too many rely on one-size-fits-all strategies or overpriced technology solutions, which cannot be absorbed and fail to deliver exponential returns. We help CEOs and C-suite executives solve their toughest challenges. We are recognized by our clients for bringing strategies to life by re-imagining how business is done.

The Beginning

Creation of First Data-Driven Management System

Our firm was founded in the early 90’s. At the time, companies were strapped with enormous cost of poor quality. We took tools such as Six Sigma and Lean and made them into management systems to help companies and large portions of the economy become more efficient and competitive. We used big data before it was cool. Our first clients were Larry Bossidy, former CEO of Allied Signal and Jack Welch, former CEO of GE. We led breakthrough transformations, which are now regarded as some of the most well-known stories in business history.

The Shift

Execution Excellence For Growth and Capability

In 2004, David Niles, Scott Miller, and Dave Fuente bought the business. In a slow growth environment, they saw an opportunity to develop a solution built off the fundamentals of Lean and Six Sigma to attack revenue challenges and build organizational capability. We deployed our solution to non-industrial companies, customizing for various business situations and cultures. In 2009, we invested in Vance Street Capital and launched our private equity practice, which now includes dozens of leading venture, growth, mid-market, and large cap investors.


Digitally-Enabled Transformation

The world has awakened to digital, yet companies struggle with execution. In 2014, we built our digital and analytics practice to help our clients efficiently seize new potential. In 2016, we brought on Deb Henretta as Vice Chair. Deb was formerly P&G’s Group President, acting as CEO of its e-business, which impacted nearly 50% of P&G’s sales. Today, our agile, integrated approach successfully unlocks value from digital to drive next-generation advantage. We deliver advanced operating models, turbo-charged by digital tools, including AI, RPA, IoT, and others, to drive faster, better, decisions.
