Today, enormous amounts of waste exist in office and service operations. Delays, bottlenecks, errors, redundancy, work-arounds, and ambiguity abounds. Non value added work can be as high as 95 percent.

Generate a sustainable advantage in cost, quality, speed, and customer service to achieve world-class performance.
