4-DIMENSIONS OF CLIENT ENGAGEMENT

STRATEGY. BREAKTHROUGH. TRANSFORMATION. INNOVATION.

Our approach to client engagement is right in our name

The 4-Dimension process begins with developing the right STRATEGY for your organization’s current and future needs. We assess current operations and identify levers for acceleration and improvement. To BREAKTHROUGH we work with you to implement corporate deployments that will use existing processes and products to drive results. We then engage with you to assess, plan and execute a TRANSFORMATION of operations, everything from plant layout to global footprints and supply chains. Finally, to drive product and process, INNOVATION is key and we excel at working with our clients from concept development to production. We link innovation through strategy, core competency and marketing position.

STRATEGY

SBTI works with its clientele to understand their strategy in order to deliver competitive advantage and to create shareholder value. We assess current operations and identify gaps or levers for acceleration and improvement. Then we design an approach to drive the right projects to achieve the strategic goals.

This can be achieved by a combination of reducing defects and variation and increasing the velocity or throughput of a process. This is SBTI’s DNA.
