powered performance

"If we hire a team to improve our people and processes, they need to see our problems from the factory floor, not just the boardroom."

WE ROLL UP OUR SLEEVES, PUT ON OUR STEEL TOE BOOTS, AND GET OUT ON THE FLOOR WITH YOUR TEAM.

At POWERS, we help you build a vital bridge between your stated culture and the definable, trainable, and sustainable language, behaviors, and interactions that deliver the performance you need from everyone. We help connect the dots, from shift changes to line maintenance to inventory control - from front-line personnel to the managers and everyone upstream. Our aim is immediate and sustainable performance improvement that adds directly to your firm's value.

We can also help you develop and implement your cultural roadmap itself. And with our new CultureWorX application, we put your own tangible, measurable, and sustainable culture metrics right in the palm of your hand.

Why Can’t We Just Do This Ourselves?

Truth is, you could.

But do you have the time, resources, and critical assessment abilities to make the improvements you need today? We find that each responsible member of your value chain is typically caught up in the whirlwind of solving each day's challenges and unable to focus on immediate and sustainable performance improvement. That's why we shadow your team during our intensive assessments and walk a mile in their shoes. 

We Work Side by Side with Your Team.

The POWERS team isn’t afraid to roll up our sleeves and get right on the shop floor to work side by side with your leaders and managers. We help create a framework for your people, systems and processes to work together in harmony to improve productivity at an ROI that more than pays for our services.

Outside In, Or Top Down Approaches Seldom Work.

A billion-dollar industry has developed over the last few decades to try and wring out every cent from the value chain of each business. We have first-hand experience with large-scale enterprises establishing entire, new departments devoted to quality and efficiency. What we have found is that these new departments establish their own fiefdom lacking any real accountability and creating new barriers to effective communication and productivity. They’re simply the “new boss, same as the old boss.” At POWERS we break down those departmental walls and build back the language, behaviors, and interactions needed to improve performance right away and sustain it over the long haul.

OUR 5-Step Powered Performance Process.

Often, when we’re in discussions with organizations, their first question is: "Why do we need an outside resource to help us optimize our business?" Here’s the short answer: Using our proven Powered Performance process, we can bring about operational change that takes less time, is less intrusive, and is less distracting than if your internal team does it themselves. But best of all, our process delivers guaranteed savings to your bottom line.

ANALYZE

CONDUCT A TWO-TO-THREE WEEK ANALYSIS OF YOUR COMPANY’S OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITIES.

Working closely with your team, we’ll determine the strengths and weaknesses of the existing Management Operating System, your staff’s supervisory skills and behaviors, as well as any process or operational problems that exist. We won’t take on an assignment if we can’t substantially improve your bottom line.

IDENTIFY

IDENTIFY THE FINANCIAL BENEFITS YOUR COMPANY GAINS BY WORKING WITH POWERS.

We’ll explain the magnitude of savings, detailed out by line item on the P&L, along with the operational improvements needed to achieve those results. We’ll also specify a guaranteed ROI and cash flow, as well as a process for measuring the savings weekly.

PLAN

COLLABORATIVELY DEVELOP A DETAILED, CUSTOMIZED IMPLEMENTATION PLAN.

Rather than hand you an off-the-shelf solution, we create a custom plan that specifically addresses your company’s unique challenges and how we’ll improve performance, including a schedule of work, deliverables, resource requirements, and timing for the plan.

EXECUTE

ACTIVELY WORK SIDE BY SIDE WITH YOUR TEAM TO EXECUTE THE PLAN.

We roll up our sleeves and get to work with your front-line leadership and their teams to build a solid level of trust and ensure the plan is understood and embraced by everyone.

EVALUATE ROI

ANALYZE THE TRUE ROI AND SAVINGS IMPROVEMENT RESULTING FROM OUR ENGAGEMENT.

Ultimately, the success of our collaboration with your company is measured using your company’s own numbers and success metrics, not some fuzzy measure we force on you. Remember, we don’t get paid for time and activity. Only for getting you measurable results. You’ll see firsthand how our guaranteed savings and cash flow commitments were met (and as is often the case, far exceeded).

WHY DO WE FOCUS ON YOUR COMPANY CULTURE?

Our years of experience have shown that your company culture (the language, behaviors, and interactions of all your people) significantly impacts your bottom line. Your team's roles and responsibilities and their ability to carry them out determine your capacity. Without a clearly defined, well-communicated culture, the productivity and efficiency of your company are severely hampered.

In many cases, we find that business culture is merely words on websites and painted on office walls. But your team may have no idea what daily language, behaviors, and interactions will exemplify that culture, nor how embodying that culture will help them meet the capacity metrics on which management bases their success.

At POWERS, we can coach and train your people with the skills and behaviors that not only exemplify your culture but tie it to improving your competitive advantage and overall margin. We call it "Operationalizing Culture," and it's how we're able to deliver our clients a significant ROI and performance improvement in months, not years.

WE DELIVER CRITICAL PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT FOR MANY INDUSTRY LEADERS IN MONTHS, NOT YEARS.
