Stax - A global strategy consulting firm

Operational Improvement

From managing performance to orchestrating outcomes.

Leadership teams cannot manage what they cannot measure. Stax helps clients frame out and measure almost anything — whether the data is embedded in deep systems, needs to come from the outside, or be developed through new, independent research and analysis. Our analytics help uncover insights into operating performance, resource allocation, working capital use, profit improvement, value creation, and to discover what’s working, what’s not, and, most importantly, why - allowing management teams to be more forward leaning.
