About Us


Since 2005 Saral has been a leader in deploying and implementing process and product improvement methodologies.  Since training some of the first Black Belts at the Six Sigma Research Institute, Saral has been a key player in the origin and evolution of the most successful improvement methodologies available today.  We make it our goal to get the right knowledge to the right people at the right time.  We do this by teaching our clients how to transform data into information and, as a result of critical thinking, how to transform information into knowledge.

Our goal is to provide the tools, methodology, mentorship, and strategy to make this a reality for our clients.  We strive to achieve these goals by incorporating a value system that is based on integrity, honesty, and ethics.  Treating people with respect and dignity, while maintaining an attitude of gratitude and appreciation, is our highest priority.  We fully realize that our success is integrally linked to our clients’ success, so we continually endeavor to provide outstanding quality, speed, and consistency in all of our services, products, and efforts.   Integrity, knowledge generation and delivery, along with client success, are the driving forces behind our business.

Saral pioneered the use of a Keep It Simple Statistically approach which has been adopted by our clients as they take data and convert it into information and subsequent knowledge which leads to true value stream and process optimization. Our strategy of aiding our clients in quickly reaching self-sustainability with their continuous improvement programs has allowed us to leverage our team of exceptional consultants to benefit a diverse group of clients.
