We have been delivering significant and measurable performance improvements for leading global manufacturers for more than 25 years and believe there is no one size fits all approach to driving competitiveness across the industry. Toyota, British Airways and Electrolux are among the brands who have tapped into our expertise to ensure they remain on top in their own fiercely competitive markets.
Industry Forum provides advice and mentoring support, extensive training & development and, where required, consultants to support from the factory floor up to board level. Our team of more than 150 experts has delivered over 400 tailor made improvement strategies in 30 countries across the world, and we are approved and certified by the relevant international trade bodies.
