Since 1947, we have developed a highly disciplined process for discovering the Red X. Our system is based on three principles: 

1. There is always a Red X that drives the difference between the best and worst performers.
2. Finding and controlling the Red X is key to solving the problem.
3. The most efficient path to the Red X is a convergent progressive search.

We continuously refine our existing techniques to improve speed and ease of use; while developing new technology to further extend our capabilities.

Leading global companies rely on Shainin to:

Solve their most challenging technical problems;
mitigate risks in new and existing systems;
develop problem solving resources (training and certification).

A problem, in its simplest form, is a hidden opportunity.

Shainin believes that problems are opportunities to make significant improvements. When hidden root causes are revealed; profound knowledge is gained.
