Mass Customization, Configuration Management, and the
A La Carte Customer® Business Model Made Simple


Regardless of the industry you’re in, if your customers want to order a la carte, then the customer-facing and sales-facing approach must be consistent with the A La Carte Customer® business model.

Taking that leap to make changes feels like an overwhelming, risky, and daunting task, but you know your growth and marketplace demand it. 

After working with Dave, his clients proclaim he is masterful at painlessly doing what they and others thought was undoable around Mass Customization, Configuration Management, Parts Numbering Systems, and Document Control, with his holistic approach to simplifying processes for sustainable gains in productivity, profitability, and customer satisfaction. 

Whether your business has suffered a downturn, reduced headcount, you’ve grown in recent months or years or you want to stay ahead of the competition, it is critical that you take some time to figure out where you stand and where you need to improve to blow away the competition.

It’s Time For Dave To Take A Sabbatical

I’ve had a very busy year. As we all know, 2020 has been a very challenging year. I need a break. More than a long weekend or a week or 2. I’m taking a sabbatical until mid-January 2021.

Perhaps you need a break! Perhaps someone you know or love needs a break and you could lend your support.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Peace, peace, peace.

Thank God It’s Monday will be back before you know it!

Does Your Business Cling To The Past Or Embrace The Future?

Does Your Business Cling To The Past Or Embrace The Future?

When it comes to evolution, does your business cling to the past or embrace the future? In order to drive the company’s evolution, the CEO must address those issues for stakeholder buy-in. He/she needs to listen and acknowledge the fears (and sometimes laziness) that keep key stakeholders reluctant to change, then show them a solution to their trepidation. They must demonstrate how the benefits of change out weight the status quo.
