The 5 Why Approach

We know change is brutally hard for your Restructuring clients. Especially when your Finance team is under tremendous pressure to perform for your customer, the bank and or investors. That’s why our consultants have both empathy and compassion for the challenging work environments we all work within.

Why We’re Hired By Other Experts

It’s simple. It’s why Banks, Bankruptcy Attorneys, CPA’s, and Investment Banks refer their clients to us. It’s why professional advisors recommend our 5 Why Leaders team of OPEX and Leadership Consultants. It’s our involvement with day-to-day operations that helps Restructuring Companies eliminate their client’s wasteful activities and inefficiencies faster than their competitors.

Where value is created yet time is often wasted, we help you uncover why and how your client’s work is accomplished. We then set in place an OPEX team to help improve it where it happens. That’s why we’re able to help get your client’s operations back on track faster than the traditional Financial Restructuring Team. Those Restructuring Agencies that don’t have the seasoned team of boots-on-the-ground, OPEX experts we provide.

Our twenty five to thirty member OPEX consulting team consists of former Chief Operating Officers, Lean Manufacturing Consultants, and Lean Leaders. All of our men and women are passionate about helping Restructuring Agencies and Professional Advisors succeed at helping turn around your clients’ companies.  Where customer value is created and the game of efficiency is either won or lost, we step in to improve operations at both the value adding and value creation level.

The Aim of Our Re-Structuring Process

Our AIM towards ongoing Operational Excellence and Organizational Development is based largely upon the foundational work of Dr. W. Edwards Deming.

After WWII ended, Dr. Deming’s Fourteen Management Principles and his System of Profound Knowledge (SOPK) © helped transform Japanese Managers. The result of his aim created the Economic Miracle we now recognize as modern day Japan––the world’s third largest economy in terms of GDP.

Today, those Fourteen Management Principles form the backbone of leadership for our 5 Why Leaders consulting team.

It’s also no coincidence why Toyota created their own, unique Fourteen Principles of Management. It was Deming who inspired them. Then, men like Taiichi Ohno and Dr. Shigeo Shingo created the Toyota Production System (TPS). Another arrow in the “quiver of experience” for many members of our OPEX consulting team.

Once you’ve experienced our Leader’s Daily Management System (LDMS)––our version of SOPK ©, you’ll understand why our team is so effective at reducing waste and improving people, process, and profits. You’ll also learn why we use LDMS to develop and leverage the precise type of problem solving skills your client’s employees need to help transform your client’s business. We believe it’s faster––and therefore far less expensive, to transform a company by earning the right to an employee’s tacit and explicit knowledge of work, than it is to have it work against you.

After we help you and your client implement LDMS, your client will have much more engaged employees. Those employees will then begin improving your KPI’s by contributing their own Continuous Daily Improvements (CDI). And it’s you and your team who will have played a large part in reconnecting your client’s employees with their once lost Intrinsic Motivation.

That’s why you’ll experience smoother running operations and far more employee productivity using our Leader’s Daily Management System and our tools of CDI. These are the primary tools we employ to improve people, process, and profit.
