Why Smart Factory Consultants?

The nature of work is changing and at Smart Factory Consultants we believe in the adage ‘adapt or die’. After years of developing a successful solo practice our founder, Doug Richards honed a systematic approach to rapidly diagnose problems and apply solutions to any technical problem. Unlike traditional consulting firms that rely on a ‘butts-in-seats’ approach to problem-solving – essentially looking for 75-80% of the expertise required in a single resource, hoping the rest can be learned on-site – we assemble a value chain of experts, each providing input only when needed. This is a ‘gig economy‘ approach to consulting but we do far more than just assign bodies to tasks; we manage success every step of the way.

In this way, we are very different from a normal agency in that you may be supporting between two and six projects during a single day (unless you are the on-site project leader). The idea is actually simple. Imagine a Regus office. Multiple companies delivering various products and services all under a single roof. There are common needs that are shared; phone screening, receptionist, printers, conference rooms, wi-fi and various other professional needs that may be cost-prohibitive to a single owner but tolerable as a cost shared across the many companies in that Regus office. The Smart Factory KC model is, at its core, very similar to that shared service arrangement but for consulting. Our clients understand this type of business and the value we offer. Some of the benefits of working with Smart Factory KC include; earning some the highest rates in the market, project-based completion incentives, the ability to work anywhere there is high-speed internet and, a dynamic team of really smart people.
