With the end of the year approaching, effective immediately we are pleased to announce a UK-based 3-way collaboration bringing TOPP TI into the Intelligent Transport & Smart Cities sector.
Joining the TOPP TI ‘Kaizen Alliance’, we welcome Leadership Champions Ltd. together with JLA Consulting International both of London and specialising in solving complex business problems via operational excellence-focused initiative management.
Being ‘Lean-oriented’ and with deep domain knowledge in Intelligent Transport (rail, highways, airports), Standby Power & Smart Cities, we were delighted when Chris Williams-Lilley, Managing Director of Leadership Champions Ltd. approached us together with JLA President & CEO David Terry looking for an IT partner to support their vast array of UK-based clients.
Both having been consultants in the British transport industry for many years, after several brainstorm sessions, product reviews, and analysis of market best practices, the decision was unanamous on all sides that there is a great opportunity to bring performance management automation into an industry which is still heavily dependent on manual, offline information management. In particularly, both consulting firms were keen on brining our KPI waste management tool to their clients. (learn more about our KPI management solution)
Serving on the steering committee for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Infrastructure for which he was co-founder, as well as the award winning Network Rail’s National Commercial Directors Forum (CDF), Chris’s visibility in the UK transport sector will allow us the opportunity to enrich our product offering by tailoring it to a sector which until recently we have had little exposure. His public speaking roles typically includes 10 keynotes a year at major industry conferences, and he has produced special focus conferences on Intelligent City Hubs and High Reliability Organisations, not to mention the Future of Station Design – which included support from Network Rail’s then CEO, Iain Coucher.
More news will be provided in the following months regarding the structure of our collaboration with both Leadership Champions and JLA Consulting.
