An internationally renowned entrepreneur has returned to his native North East to re-launch the Measurable Management programme which has transformed leadership throughout the US, after teaming up with a regional firm.
Robin Byrne has entered a partnership with personal development business High Force Training, to roll out the business improvement programme Measurable Management, which was nominated for the 2011 United Nations NGO Positive Peace Award.
Byrne originally ran operations for Xerox in the North East before he developed the Measurable Management programme and successfully implemented it with regional businesses like Arriva, NSK Bearings, Tarmac and Darlington & Durham Fire and Rescue amongst many others.
An invitation from the University of South Dakota in 2002 took him to the States and, after successfully rolling it across America, the programme is today implemented in the US Air Force which stated it was “the most effective programme for making things happen that they had ever experienced”.
Private firms like American Airlines and Toshiba America are also using the programme to help them improve the way they handle various processes within the business.
Having teamed up with Newton Aycliffe-based business High Force Training, Byrne will now help North East firms to reap the benefits of the programme through a series of seminars in the region.
High Force managing director Simon Williamson said: “This is a great opportunity to show business owners, managing directors, general managers, production managers and anyone responsible for training within an organisation how Measurable Management works and how it can increase productivity and efficiency along with reducing costs and therefore increasing profits.
“It gives the attendees the chance to meet Robin in person, as well as ask questions and hear about his successes with other companies.”
Byrne, who is originally from Darlington, said: “A staggering fact about this approach is that the programmes implemented in the USA have consistently delivered more than 10 times return on investment.
“Although I’ve been in the States for the last 10 years, I remain passionate about supporting North East businesses and I hope to help firms in my native region receive the same benefits of the programme that some of America’s biggest organisations have taken advantage of.”
High Force Training specialises in improving team and individual performances through the provision of emotional intelligence training and team building and works with a number of large organisations in the North East.
