Avery Dennison   "If you have ideas about things that you want to do in terms of new products, new customers, new services, new geographies, you do not have to spend forever doing a long study. Even when you finish one of those studies, you often don't really know how much you can rely on it. If you go out and test the idea in a small-scale hundred-day way, you have some real solid data. We have been able to implement certain strategies much more quickly this way."

Stanford U. Medical Center "Schaffer Consulting worked with us to build a unique model to drive process innovation and results at Stanford Hospital and Clinics. Working with their consultants we were able to layer the Schaffer Consulting "Rapid Results methodology" on our existing skills in Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing. The result was an exciting model that is based on solid industrial engineering principles but at the same time tuned for execution and results. Using the pressure of time as a forcing function, we developed a "90-Day Rapid Results" paradigm that has been deployed in about a dozen demonstration projects with promising results. The Schaffer Consulting consultants were most helpful in the design of this model as well as mentoring our project coaches on the "softer", but incredibly important, aspects of driving results in a complex environment: setting goals, facilitating teams, managing conflict, and driving sustainable change.
