Case Study - X-PM Paris

X-PM Paris has recently worked with a large multinational company headquartered in France and operating worldwide. The company had an important factory in Scandinavia that suffered from low efficiency and a bad delivery rate. The division management considered this to be a critical issue, which was affecting the quality of the business.

The division VP contacted X-PM Paris and requested a program to deliver drastic improvements in quality at the factory.

X-PM Paris together with its Sweden partner proposed a joint approach to resolve this issue. While Scandinavia assigned a seasoned Swedish speaking executive to the job, Paris kept control of the restructuring plan. This resulted in a 30% rise in quality indicators after just six months.
