What we believe

Passionate about brilliant processes for our clients, rewarding careers for our employees and a better place to live for our community.

We didn’t hire somebody today.

It wasn’t because he wasn’t a talented, driven, proven consultant. He had a great resume, graduated from an Ivy League School, made his mark already at one particularly large, management consultant firm and by many standards was considered a sought-after, “Who’s Who Under 30” kind of candidate. He would be a jewel for many companies, but, as I said, we did not hire him today.

Our world at TranSigma is all about process and he understood process. He liked it. He knew how to analyze big data, and glean the insights that would guide client decisions. Ask him to speak about regulatory and technological complexities and he could quickly let fly intricate strategies that were textbook perfect. He was by all accounts a technician’s technician, he knew his stuff.

But he was not hired at TranSigma. He had the technology chops we were looking for, but he did not understand people in the deep, nuanced way that is critical to process and everything to us.

He knew intellectually that process begins with people, but he did not feel it in his gut the way we do here. This lack of understanding how people tick would have inhibited his ability to shepherd transition through an organization. While he may have had the ability to see the end game, there would have been a void in understanding how to get there – a lack of digging into what is going on in peoples’ minds and thus not have the ability to guide and coach them through the transition.

One thing we do exceptionally well here is knowing how to implement, control and execute change. He was smart but people were somewhat of a mystery to him.

The fact is, he will probably excel somewhere else, but not at TranSigma.

Those that are successful here are talented in our core competencies: change management, data analytics, lean process engineering and program management. They understand each of the four pillars, but they also share a keen knowledge of people, knowing what frightens them, what motivates them and ultimately help create an environment of people who embrace change and not flee from it. You see, TranSigma professionals enter into the culture of every client with a broad and fresh perspective, adjust to it, then help employees, managers and executives navigate the change — effectively communicating across all levels within the company.
[This skill is not easy to hire for.]

All of us here at TranSigma understand our purpose is to transform businesses with world-class process improvement, governance, enterprise data and program management services. With partners and affiliates worldwide, we provide the global services clients are desperately in need.

We love process. We are process animals. But most of all, we are inspired by individuals, and the companies and communities in which they live. Everything at TranSigma begins, and ends, with people.

And that’s what makes process different here.
