Higher Marks in Education

In public education, there are ongoing budget cuts and declining enrollments. In private education, there are rising costs that are taking tuitions to historic heights. Altogether, public and private institutions are facing increasing pressure to deliver on the evolving expectations from parents, students, and the outside world. Teachers and administrators must work closer with educational institutions, invariably faced with the issue of how to do more with less. But in our experience, this is where innovations are born.

ASI’s services help educators transform their high-pressure operations into lean and competitive organizations. We can help them evolve.

When we work with educators, they appreciate our wide view of critical value processes.  They learn about strategy and execution. They also benefit from proven management tools and methods – many of which we developed like LEO and Design for Six Sigma. We pave the way for success in industry – we do the same in services. We deliver solid business results that reduce cost, eliminate waste and increase productivity. We help educational institutions implement structural and sustainable changes in their processes and procedures that reduce costs, improve program efficiencies and optimize revenue.
