Client Story: adidas Group
adidas Group Profile:
With one of the world’s most recognized brands and a wide portfolio of products, adidas Group is a global powerhouse in sporting equipment, footwear, apparel and more.
As technologies and consumer tastes change ever more rapidly, managing a complex product mix and with high quality, low cost and rapid delivery becomes even more difficult. In addition, a major acquisition — Reebok — put significant pressure on the business
Pivotal Services and Solutions:
- Provide coaching and training for corporate operations executive team and owners of global manufacturing partners
- Support selection of high-potential change initiatives for core business and manufacturing operations
- Provide Lean Six Sigma training to internal project teams (Europe and US) and manufacturing facilities (native language support in China, Indonesia, Vietnam)
Lean efforts dramatically drive down lead times for product delivery, while DMAIC projects have made key inroads on recurring quality issues. Moreover, cross-functional teams are addressing root causes of high material and product ramp-up costs that slow time-to-market.
