About Us

TIME is something that we all have, need, and waste. The question is: why do we waste what we need?

My job as a consultant is to get to the bottom of it, and figure out a way to transform that wasted time into productive time.

In order to do that, we first need to get to the root of the problem. When evaluating your business strategy, I apply lean thinking to record each step in your flowchart and construct a separate value-stream map. Your processes and tools can be analyzed for time reductions and non-value added steps.

I then develop, implement, and train any process improvement tools you may need, which includes items such as automation software, training materials, or a functional website.

When you save time, you save money. When you save money, you improve your bottom line. That is my end game.

To learn more about how I (representing GRW Consulting) can save you time and money more specifically, visit our website at www.gogrw.com, or simply give me a call at 505-967-3097. We conduct work nationwide, and the first consultation is always free.

Our Ideal Customer

Businesses that have 10-200 employees and under $2M in revenue per location. Our ideal customer wants to increase their profits, whether they have issues or not, because they understand that there is always room for advancements. When you meet our potential customers, they might be looking for ways to save money on labor and COGS, improve productivity, and/or restore consistency. They might even seem overwhelmed or disorganized. There might be mentions of needing manuals in HR, or a website that is more functional and up-to-date. Perhaps they're fantasizing about their computers automatically performing tasks for them. We can make these things happen, and we work with our clients to make sure they can afford it.
