Curious to know if it makes sense to manufacture in the US? It does more often than most people think. We’ve developed a system to calculate the true cost of manufacturing and developing products overseas and can calculate at what point it makes sense to actually produce locally instead. We understand the pros and cons of both and can help you make the best decision for your company.
Finding the right factory can be hard, especially if you don’t speak Chinese. I’ve helped dozens of businesses identify factory partners in consumer goods industries ranging from electronics to plastics to metals and everything in between.
You’d be surprised what doesn’t get translated. Factory translators often struggle to convey technical details and frequently leave out vital information. Sometimes trips to visit factories in China are more effective when the factories don’t know that I speak Chinese. The employees speak more freely and there’s often really valuable insights. One company solved 6 months of frustration during a single meeting by letting me be a “fly on the wall”.
Product development in China is one of the biggest areas I’ve seen companies lose time and money. Understanding how to work with the people and culture in China can lead to massive savings. I’ve helped companies cut their time to market in half simply by understanding how to better work with the culture.
When working with factories in China, quality issues can arise from miscommunications, cultural differences, unpredictable roadblocks, or many other situations. I help companies identify and fix those sources of unmet expectations, so they can resolve the issues at hand and prevent them in the future.
One of the biggest concerns of working with China is the risk of counterfeit goods. If you are concerned about your own suppliers or about other companies using your brand, trade secrets, or intellectual property, I can help investigate to determine the situation and what can be done about it.
Empowering employees to solve problems builds a strong culture and grows your bottom line. Whether it’s problem solving training like Lean/Six Sigma or developing custom training for onboarding new employees, I make learning engaging and practical so it can be applied immediately. Imagine customized “How It’s Made” clips to help employees better understand your company’s processes. Or a Six Sigma class where the principles are used to lose weight, increase concentration, or survive a zombie apocalypse.
Market Analysis (Export)
Selling products in China can be a huge opportunity for companies, but customer needs in China are drastically different than customer needs in the US. I help businesses perform market validation to identify product segments, messaging, flavors, and more to start selling to the Chinese market.
A good executive retreat is both fun and productive in planning the growth of your business. I love taking executives around China to gain a greater appreciation and respect for the Chinese people, food, culture, and more. The experiences my clients gain on these trips are both unforgettable and insightful. These retreats often help executives decrease frustration, identify new opportunities, increase efficiency, and much more.
