Why Chasm

Too many consultants still try and take old models and apply them to organisations. While this may provide a short-term flurry of improvement activity, there is often very little long-term benefit.

The only way to drive sustainable change is to change behaviour

Chasm was born out of a frustration at seeing organisations waste money either on non-sustainable operational improvement projects or ‘sheep dip’ training and development programmes, neither of which fix the underlying problems.

At Chasm, we employ a behaviour-led approach, rather than an operational-led approach. By giving people the skills to drive operational improvement, we enable factories to make sustainable change, improve productivity and increase profitability.

Our average ROI for projects is 3:1

Knowing the difference we can make to the individuals and teams we work with is the driving force behind everything we do. We love to see the positive change in people – it’s the thing that gets us out of bed in the morning.

Our values

  • People – are at the centre of what we do and why we do it
  • Integrity – is in everything we do and how we do things
  • Purpose & focus – we keep objectives and outcomes clear
  • Customer delivery – we aim to exceed customer expectations
  • Innovation – we keep doing what is new and what is required, not just what we know
  • Challenge – we challenge everything, including ourselves
