Michael Nir – president of Sapir Consulting US founded the company in 2004.
Our initial work was project management related – focusing on scheduling and budget control at large infrastructure projects;
At the same time, several lean manufacturing engagements were perused;
Lean manufacturing know how was achieved through numerous engagements in medium sized production facilities – industries included: medical equipment, plastic, irrigation systems, various produce sorting, aluminum casting for defense, food packaging, dairy and others;
Training and workshop delivery was an integral part of solution delivery in lean. It encompassed both the hard skills and the required soft skills for success;
PMO – project / program management office – expertise evolved starting 2008 and well into 2016, during several large IT software and hardware as well as medical imaging clients engagements.
Scrum and Agile project management as a prime offering started with these PMO engagements, as part of the search for better project value delivery models. Scaling agile into the enterprise was a natural follow on as well as Lean UX and Design thinking.
Training became a prime offering at about the same time.
Lean startup approach as a synthesis of agile, scaling, lean ux has been our focus in the last three years. The integration of the practical experience contributes to the value driven delivery of our engagements.
We collaborate with world class experts to offer best in class value driven results
