Strategic Planning Leads To Growth

“With a limited number of customers and the increasingly competitive price pressure for companies serving the Department of Defense (DoD), FCI was experiencing limited growth in its existing customer markets. Company leaders wanted to establish a Quality Management System to meet future client quality standards, as most of their DoD customers rely on MIL specs and standards to guide their quality system. The company contacted GENEDGE for assistance in developing a more strategically aligned plan for growth.” – Maureen Wilcox,  President (Retired), FEMME Company, Inc.

Training Program Builds Teamwork And Boosts Efficiency

“With GENEDGE’s delivery of TWI through Tom’s coaching and mentoring, we have taken the TWI JI training provided earlier and have rewritten all of our SOPs, using the TWI principles to retrain all employees. In addition, we’ve added a second shift utilizing this same training method with great success. Using TWI’s hands-on participatory approach, AkzoNobel has increased efficiency for multiple processes. Plus the trust and teamwork between our leaders and employees have strengthened.
