Operational Performance Improvement with Quick Release_

A classic of the consultancy genre. Big names will charge big money for recommendations clients lack the time or expertise to implement. QR_’s blended consultancy, solution implementation and software development offering ensure insights can be actioned for lasting value.

Supported by in-house software developers, we reveal, implement and embed lasting value.

Designers, engineers and manufacturers face significant challenges in responding to regulatory, technological and consumer megatrends. World-beating IP is frequently held by smaller organisations who struggle to scale production, or larger, lean-running manufacturers lacking the flexibility to rapidly ramp or pivot production. Change is required, and the perception of an organisation’s ability to make this change also matters to potential investors and existing shareholders.

QR_’s Quite Refreshing process differs from the big-name consultancies by emphasising implementation as well as discovery and analysis. External operational performance improvement analysis can generate ideas, provide benchmarking and explore best practice internal reviews may lack exposure to.
