Here are the actual results for a Power Idea Session:

The client is an $10,000,000 division of a global petroleum company.  A single Power Idea Session was held to identify and prioritize opportunities for cost reduction and overall corporate improvement.  That single day session produced the following cost reduction results.

Phenomenal success by the numbers:

12 attendees for 7.5 hours

306 ideas developed during training

25.5 ideas per attendee on average

11 priority ideas identified

$500,000 total estimated value of 11 key ideas identified during training

$66,666 per hour estimated value of the training before complete implementation

Training pays when it's done our way.

We use these one and two-day cost reduction training models as assessment tools before committing to any Profit Improvement Process engagements.  The feedback is vital to management and us to allow us both to make the appropriate decisions on how to proceed.

This Power Idea Session training is based on 40 years of real industrial experience blended with a Masters degree in Creativity and Innovation: an experience mix of engineer, manager, executive, scientist, sales, accounting and advanced creativity training expertise that is unique and powerful.  After years of success I'm so sure it will deliver the results that I'll guarantee it.  Please contact us if you would like to energize your business.

Traditional cost reduction training

We also conduct "traditional" cost reduction familiarization training that can be designed to be more of a lecture to impart knowledge and inform rather than to be a working session.  In some cases, more of that educational component is incorporated into the two-day Power Idea Session as is appropriate for the audience and the company. 

In other cases, with hourly employees for example, the sessions may be an hour or up to a half-day with more of an educational component to allow them to understand and engage in the process.

Example: The international seminar Strategic & Sustainable Cost Control held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was a great success.  We will covered the key elements of what it takes to create and install an ongoing cost reduction and profit improvement process.

Example: Our international seminar Master Class on Business Costs Reduction in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  This presentation covers the key elements of what it takes to create and install an ongoing cost reduction and profit improvement process -- through the process of generating, evaluating and developing cost reduction and profit improvement ideas.

The World-Class Profit Improvement and Cost Reduction Workshop held in Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi India was a great success for everyone involved.

Here are the actual results for the World-Class Profit Improvement and Cost Reduction Workshop:

In addition to learning what it takes to build a world-class cost reduction and profit improvement process the attendees worked through the process of identifying, evaluating and processing profit improvement ideas.

Attendee success by the numbers:

53 total ideas average per attendee

6.3 priority ideas average per attendee

$1,013,000 Average project value

$20,000 to $4,490,000 range of project values

Training pays when it's done our way.

"Just telling employees to cut costs or increase profits without giving them the tools to do the job
 is likely to frustrate everyone and yield less than satisfactory results."
