Complexity kills growth. Fight back with Complexity Management, a proven approach that boosts revenue 5%-40% and reduces costs 10%-35%. Even better, it improves customer satisfaction, inventory turns and margins.
Complexity is a natural consequence of success, and some complexity is desirable. A useful way to analyze the complexity in your company–and to separate complexity that’s beneficial from complexity that hurts the business–is to begin from a base of zero. We’ll work with you to determine your zero-complexity costs, and then assess the costs of adding complexity (in the form of, for example, product variety) back in. Our battle-tested approach to complexity management has enabled companies in many different industry sectors to capture maximum value using a repeatable model that keeps complexity out while improving profitability and customer centricity.
