We Are Strong

Teams with tactical capacity – the ability to work under changing conditions, and to translate strategies into actions –  beat individuals every time.  GPG is continually investing to capitalize on its own strengths.  At the bottom of the recession (June 09), we decided to build our own training center, and while this was a significant investment during a recession, GPG remained committed to moving it forward as a way to build leadership. We believe “the way you succeed is by helping others be successful.”  This message is a core component of our culture, reinforcing it at every step of the way.

One of our favorite quotes is, “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”  And it is with this in mind that we founded our mission to provide The Ultimate Customer Service.  It’s such a strong program that we see a lot of clients from various teams both nationally and globally work with us to refine their quality management programs.  We express ourselves in FMEA, RCA, TQM, as well as many other disciplines.  We practice lean, six sigma and the very best that Deming had to offer the world.  We experience life through our clients different unique selling points.  And yet we are one community marked by our need to make quality matter.  Today, as has been the case for since the late 1950’s, we are strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them.

The Power Of Focus

1) Staff augmentation for your short to medium-term staffing needs due to a variety of factors (eg, recent downsizing, sudden expansion).  It is the least impactful role that we can play and self-explanatory.  Our clients look to us to “plug a hole” for their company by temporarily filling the role of full-time employees.

2) External change force aka “political cover”. It can be hard for to do what’s right (sacred cows and all that jazz) – particularly when it comes to job layoffs, salary and benefit changes/reduction, major operational and strategic shifts. Hiring our team can be a way to reach the desired conclusions with sufficient political cover in case certain parties are unhappy (eg, a displeased Board or disgruntled employees) or things go wrong

3) Best practices (eg, sales, operations, production).  This enables our clients to recognize common attributes of effective solutions, applying field proven, specific and measured results.  As “masters at reinventing the wheel ”we have the white papers, databases, post-project reviews, etc.

4) Analytical horsepower.  A corollary to staff augmentation, we add value through solving issues and executing strategies where skillsets and knowledge may need  insufficient. Consultants can be of great value given their training and capabilities.

5) Fresh perspective.  Our clients benefit from a fresh set of eyes – you’d be amazed at the amount of value we can add based on the most mundane observations and insights.  This is so much more than “glorified common sense”, for front-line client employees, it can be easy to fall into daily routines without a critical eye towards measurement, analysis, and improvement.

6) Training and skill-set augmentation.  We’d argue that every consulting project – particularly ones with heavy client interaction – incorporates client training as a major ingredient. The best recommendations are worthless if clients can’t implement and maintain suggested changes. Thus, a large part of what we do is educate client employees on necessary knowledge, skills, abilities, and mindsets.
