    Quik Turn Program
    JCG’s Quik Turn Program is a holistic, cross-functional approach, that focuses on quickly identifying high impact opportunities for EBITDA and cash flow improvements across the entire organization.
    It is a multi-phased program that begins with the identification and quantification of performance improvement opportunities related to revenue, cost of goods sold, selling general and administrative expenses, working capital and cash management. An action plan is designed with assigned roles and responsibilities along with an implementation schedule. Immediate action is taken for ‘quick hits’ followed by further action on major initiatives and organization-wide changes. All actions are done in conjunction with management before transferring ownership and knowledge to client personnel. Quik Turn is a holistic, cross-functional approach, that focuses on quickly identifying high impact opportunities for EBITDA and cash flow improvements across the entire organization.
    Manufacturing and Logistics
    The largest proportion of costs for many companies are ‘direct’ costs, including either products, production or labor. Established sourcing relationships, ingrained operational planning and well-worn manufacturing techniques have often evolved organically as a business grows, leading product design and engineering decisions to become deeply layered and complex.
    In other cases, supply chains have become intricate and unnecessarily diverse, with logistics operations and networks trapping inventory and absorbing working capital. Maximizing gross margin requires the identification of these hidden opportunities, as well as the development and rapid execution of initiatives that lower cost, while maintaining or improving quality and customer service, and releasing cash into operations.
    Our professionals, who possess years of direct line management and operating experience, create a sense of urgency, challenging and redirecting companies toward high-impact initiatives that deliver accelerated reductions in direct costs and associated improvements in margins.
