Results-driven business innovation by changing the way people think and act

For 40 years, the Techno Management Research Institute (TMRI) has been helping manufacturing sites innovate their management practices by providing results-driven “practical consulting” services tailored to the manufacturing industry. Through our work, we guide businesses towards innovation by showing them how to change the way their people think and act using VPM ® (Value Producing Management) -- an original approach to management that focusses on activating human resources in order to spawn productivity increases and new value creation from the frontline of work. Business continue to learn how to apply VPM ® to solving problems not just on their production floors but also in each of their business processes from development and design to procurement, logistics and sales.
