Experienced, Disciplined and Honest Leadership.
Successful project management requires an experienced team executing on a clearly defined strategy, supported with all necessary resources. Regular, transparent communication and real-time data monitoring is required to stay on track and moving forward. Seraph brings experienced leadership that keeps a diverse set of stakeholders engaged and on plan.
The Seraph management consulting team works collaboratively across disparate teams to diplomatically resolve conflicts and deliver superior products on schedule, within acceptable cost. We have worked with international teams and hundreds of engineers to provide cross function support. We thrive in strategy building, sourcing decisions, product roadmaps, customer negotiations and platform investments to execute your vision. Projects we have supported span due diligence for merger and acquisition, launching new customer development initiatives, helping companies convert from regional to global engineering and from high cost to best cost engineering. We are well versed developing product strategy and technical road maps to drive growth.
New Product Development
Seraph’s NPD approach is based on rapid learning and modeling of both product and process, delivering a program that moves quickly through a series of steps that activate thinking and help gain understanding. Traditional workshops take weeks and sometimes months to accomplish this; Seraph, using tools like 3P, have condensed this process into as little as 4-5 days. Our projects have resulted in as much as 20% reduction in manufacturing costs and 40% reduction of capital costs. We operate cross functional teams that evaluate and converge upon optimum solutions at the assembly, sub-assembly, component and manufacturing process levels. Our deep manufacturing leadership experience bridges costly gaps in communication, helping your organization achieve smooth handoffs as the product moves toward industrialization.
For many companies, construction is a means to an end, not the core business. The tools and systems used to operate a manufacturing plant, logistics warehouse or energy facility do not effectively transfer to the management of disparate contractors, suppliers and government permitters. Seraph acts as the owner's representative, or even project manager for large construction projects. We use steering committees and an on-site office to keep all facets of the work moving forward. Tracking progress, turnovers and the critical path from a “war room” is the fastest way to resolve conflicts and minimize surprises. Simple systems and tangible milestones are the cornerstone of how we manage complex operations.
