Why Use Trafero Solutions to Guide Your Transformation?

For leaders in medium to large organizations who want to significantly change their organizational performance and stay ahead of industry changes, Trafero Solutions offers processes, information, and skills development that facilitate the ability to lead by addressing the most critical performance issues.

In contrast to other consulting companies that offer generic management consulting solutions, Trafero Solutions offers:

  • A proven, science-based paradigm for business development, process improvement, and organization culture that allows leaders to quickly learn, understand, and communicate the key principles to all levels of their organization;
  • Well-founded and validated research-based measurement tools that focus on specific facets of organizational performance and process efficiencies that allow the measurement, baselining, and comparison of the organization -- internally, externally, and longitudinally.
  • A change management and transformation process that trains, mentors, and facilitates organization leaders through "customized" phases of transformation.

The Trafero Solutions approach focuses on facilitating the leader’s ability to lead their organization through a comprehensive and cohesive process that culminates in increased organization performance across the desired metrics of success.

Trafero Solutions’ approach and methodologies are substantiated through years of research and consulting support:

  • Our Culture-Climate-Behavior paradigm was developed over a 5-year internal research project.
  • All of our implemented measurement tools are based on the concepts in our Culture-Climate-Behavior paradigm.
  • Our measurement tools have been validated with follow-up inputs from over 200 organizations around the globe, each with their own unique culture and climate. Consistent replication of the underlying scientific basis for the research assures applicability to a wide range of organizations.
