What makes us so respected and effective?

INNOVATION Our experience with Business Transformation goes back over 75 years. In groundbreaking work, we pioneered many of the tools critical to the Lean, Agile Enterprise, Lean Six Sigma and Business Transformation methodologies. In the 1970's, Rath & Strong's Dorian Shainin played an integral part in developing Agile and Six Sigma at Motorola. Later, in the 1980's, Rath & Strong helped bring Lean from Japan, pioneering the integration of what is now commonly referred to as Lean Six Sigma. Rath & Strong has become a pioneer of Business Transformation implementation and developing End-to-End Enterprise-wide solutions.

GLOBAL CAPABILITY Our global capabilities span Business Transformation, Change Management, Leadership Consulting, Cost Reduction programs, Organizational Effectiveness, and Training. With local capabilities around the world, we have broad experience in supporting global rollouts of these initiatives.

SKILLS TRANSFER Rath & Strong offers a full suite of consulting, coaching, mentoring and training in Business Transformation and Agile Enterprise, as well as other customized programs to achieve business excellence. We can help your organization get started, help you go enterprise-wide, re-energize an existing program, or help get a stalled effort restarted. We exclusively work with clients on a skills transfer basis; our client's success is our success.

INTEGRATION OF TECHNICAL & BEHAVIORAL ASPECTS OF CHANGE Our approach is distinctive. We focus on Leadership, Change Management, People and Influence Skills — the skills needed to make any Business Transformation, or ongoing improvement, really work and truly last. In all aspects of our work we adopt a transparent, highly collaborative style aimed at sharing knowledge and techniques.

CUSTOMER, PROCESS, LEADERSHIP & CULTURE We've learned that focusing on four key leverage points – customer, process, leadership, and culture and how they relate to one another – is key to any successful business process improvement initiative.
