Productivity Inc. is a leading consulting and training firm that helps organizations build new capabilities, save money, and grow. We focus on three progressive strategies: Operational Excellence, Strategic Innovation, and Leadership & Culture. Working together, these strategies provide the means to continually refresh a company’s value proposition while making the organizational changes needed for daily improvement and sustainable growth.


Productivity Inc. has worked with the Global 1000 for more than 38 years. We pioneered the implementation of lean and TPM methodologies in manufacturing in the late 1970s (click the Productivity Firsts link at left for more details).

Since then, we have extended these methodologies across a wide range of industries, including healthcare, finance, and other services. Productivity’s time-tested Lean Management System provides a uniquely comprehensive approach to implementing lean across an entire enterprise, incorporating assessment, leadership, and business renewal. Our Strategic Innovation System was developed from years of research into proven, leading-edge practices for innovation management and top-line growth in both service and manufacturing industries.

We have worked successfully with enterprises in a wide range of industries, including process and discrete manufacturing (automotive, consumer products, food processing, packaging, mining, oil and gas, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, printing, and others), government agencies, healthcare, media, and financial services.
