Consulting With Impact, Ltd.

Consulting With Impact, Ltd. provides continuous improvement solutions for small and mid-sized companies that help identify and move them toward their ideal state. The CWI toolset includes Lean, Six Sigma and Behavioral Management tools along with heavy doses of PCS (Plain Common Sense).

The process for tool selection, target definition and execution is uniquely designed for each client to maximize their targeted financial, cultural and customer-related returns. (For a recent 6 month period, clients experienced an 11.5X annualized return on investment for their consulting and training dollars.)
In addition to providing high impact consulting, Consulting With Impact also provides training and executive coaching for their clients. CWI consultant resources recently participated in the development and delivery of coursework for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt curricula at the college level and have adapted the material for delivery on site for companies requiring tailored Six Sigma training. And their consultants are currently pursuing certification through the International Coach Federation to provide best-in-class coaching solutions for clients to retain and maximize the contribution of key employees.

Clients are growing more sophisticated and their requirements more demanding. Many have gone through the basic changes in their process flows and are now ready for more company-wide systems integration projects. Others have reduced variation successfully at the lower levels, and are now facing the next level of projects involving issues that have had several unsuccessful attempts at resolution. Both of these paths can generate significant rewards but also expose the company and its transformation effort to significant risk. To address these needs, CWI recently partnered with Palisade Corporation to add the @RISK simulation and optimization suite to its product and consulting offerings. Whether generating a simulation to estimate the impact of a change on a customer or developing the optimum solution for nagging process issues, simulation reduces the risk and anxiety experienced by the client. The ease of applying the Palisade software suite allows both the consultant and the client to quickly see the best path and, just as important, demonstrate it for others including employees, senior management, customers and investors.

Companies in North America and Europe in a variety of manufacturing and service industries have benefited from the CWI transformation approach. If you would like more information or would like to see how the @RISK tools have been applied to CWI clients, visit the Consulting With Impact, Ltd. website at
