TCMUK Limited led a very successful Value Stream Mapping event at Investacast recently. Their leadership and clarity of thought was invaluable in helping the team gather the relevant data and identify the key areas for improvement in the business. Their personal style is highly engaging and the team enjoyed the project throughout its duration.

Great to work with TCMUK on business growth strategy. Their advice has been direct, practical, the right degree of ‘challenging’ and above all motivating. Adam’s engineering background has meant that his input to our business has been directly relevant and immediately helpful
Owner / Director
32 Helander employees attended the 2 day Problem Solving course over 4 consecutive weeks and were introduced to a variety of approaches and techniques to help with the resolution of problems and improving processes in our workplace. Adam presented the content in a fun and interactive format and encouraged participation and discussions within the groups. I would definitely recommend this course.
The business has been undertaking a transformation and change programme, due to TCMUK limited’s knowledge and back ground in Change Management and Manufacturing they came into support the Management Team facilitating work shops looking at team dynamics and execution of business objectives. They recognised issues and identified practical solutions very quickly. They built quick rapport with the Team and they have sought out TCMUK’s guidance and advice.

In undertaking his role, Adam is genuinely able to get alongside people, encourage their input and act as a sounding board to support real improvements. I’d work with Adam any time.
Richard worked with me during a period of significant change and restructuring and successfully rebuilt and reorganised the sales function. I found him to be extremely professional and hard working, with excellent knowledge in his area of expertise.
Richard worked for me for 6 months on aerospace engine compressor and turbine casings commodity, analysing the current method of manufacture and global supply chain solution, in order to identify opportunities to improve efficiencies and reduce component cost. Richard analysed a number of high volume engines types, interacted with the lead engineers and global buyers, and presented his findings and improvement solutions to the OEM for approval. After the 6 months, Richard identified opportunities delivering +£1m savings per year.
Technical Programme Manager
Richard spent 3-4 months at IAC analysing our internal procedures and processes from order enquiry through to release for manufacturing. His intuitive view of the situation, broad ranging experience and empathy with IAC’s employees was excellent. A detailed plan including proposed processes and new structure was duly delivered on time. I would highly recommend Richard for any Business Consultant contract.
TCMUK Limited have helped in coaching the Board of Directors and my Senior Managers to identify the key KPIs needed to obtain robust policy deployment and to help focus on the key business drivers. Their unique style helped the teams to solve issues themselves with occasional prompting and questioning and challenge to test the robustness of the solution.
Facing the challenge of ensuring we didn’t fail on our commitments to our customers, employees and shareholders we needed a well proven methodology of grabbing the strategic vision and making sure everyone was joined up and clear on what we had to deliver. We needed to create accountability and measurement. TCMUK has helped tremendously in moving the dial in that process, their simplistic no nonsense approach works. TCMUK Limited are a true partner on our growth journey.
Adam helped me fast track my use of LinkedIn, so that I didn’t have to spend days navigating and learning. From setting up a professional profile, to Advanced searching, I am now able to make much better use of this business network tool. Adam took me through a step by step guide, which worked really well
