Our Mantra: Speed Wins Every Time

Speed is a core advantage in business. We base everything we do on this fundamental belief. The degree to which your company prioritizes speed is reflected by your culture and management systems. We have prioritized time- based management (a.k.a. TBM) since our founding 30+ years ago. 

Now, more than ever, it is a good time to consider what speed means for your business and how your company could benefit by being faster, more responsive, and agile.

Lean DNA: It’s in Our Blood

TBM was a pioneer in bringing lean principles to US manufacturing over 30 years ago. Many of our early client successes are documented in Jim Womack’s book, Lean Thinking. Our lean heritage runs deep and we use lean tools and in our engagements every day. 

You achieve immediate increases in operational speed, agility, and problem-solving skills that empower your business to respond to opportunities faster than your peers, paving the way to continuous improvement and profitable growth.
