The company provides consulting, audit and training services in the upstream supply chain: sourcing, costing, planning and forecasting, support to manufacturing.

It was created after extensive academic and corporate exposure, with one purpose in mind: avoid analysis-paralysis, cut the consulting cr*p, and implement changes – no matter how small – that make networks of suppliers-customers more transparent, efficient and sustainable.

A shop is being set-up to provide you with the best resources to get started on your own.
