This journey begins with espi’s discovery process, where consultants gain a detailed understanding of the business. espi brings years of practical and hands-on experience and works shoulder to shoulder with the internal champions on selected improvement projects. As a part of working with espi, these internal champions go through a process of learning – participating – contributing – to leading subsequent initiatives where espi continues to assist as a coach.
