If It Ain’t Broke, Fix It Anyway
Tools to Build Indestructible Projects with Enduring Results
The mentality of, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is an outdated philosophy that has proven to have catastrophic effects on project investments. Our projects are volatile endeavors filled with numerous uncertainties, dependencies, contingencies, and risks — not to mention the personalities and competing interests; they require a lot of attention and enhancement! Projects that just limp along without the required adjustments and improvements are sucking the lifeblood out of too many companies. In this ludicrously competitive new world economy, our project management mantra needs to shift from “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” to: “If It Ain’t Broke, Fix It Anyway!”

In today’s competitive environment, every dollar spent needs to be tightly tied to the bottom line: a company’s overall profitability. It’s become very clear that project change initiatives are strategic investments, and a project that makes money for the company or ensures value continuity is a good investment, and one that doesn’t is a bad one. Achieving business value is first and foremost to everything we do. We achieve and celebrate ‘Quick Hits’ and build incremental business value that endures for the long haul, thus improving companies’ competitive positioning in the marketplace.
We work closely with business leaders and project teams to ensure the quantitative business goals and strategic elements are clearly understood and internalized in order to set our change initiatives up for success from the very beginning.

We apply LEAN principles to all our process improvement initiatives. LEAN or LEAN Thinking is the mindset of the way an organization does business. It consists of principles with the goal of satisfying customers with the highest possible quality at the lowest cost in the quickest time. LEAN is the systematic elimination of waste from all aspects of an organization’s operations, where waste is viewed as any use or loss of resources that does not lead directly to creating the product or service a customer wants, when they want it.
Give us a call at 201-803-4653 or fill out our online form to find out how we can help you with your improvement initiatives and how we can deliver in-house LEAN training to your management and staff.
