Lean Consulting and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tend to be so closely related as they both look at process and increasing productivity. Companies that utilize a Lean specialist for ERP implementation benefit by gaining an entire holistic analysis of how ERP changes will affect the company.

Applied Performance takes the traditional ERP implementation process and flips it around. Rather than focusing on how to integrate your company into using a specific tool, we focus on a how ERP will integrate into your company.
