Challenge 1

Increase the speed and operational flow of food preparation procedures to expedite food delivery to customers.

Solution 

Convened a “blue-ribbon” commission of top managers of company and franchise restaurants to discuss how to improve “speed-of-service.” Findings from event led to the development of customer self-service drinks and in-dining room condiment stands.  The initial test of the process saved the company $3M.  Once rolled out, competitors soon followed suit

Challenge 2

Information flow to district operations managers was being impeded by the amount of time they had to spend on the road driving to locations.

Solution

Developed and produced an audio cassette-based corporate news program that introduced top events and discussed important topics in monthly releases.  Update! Provided DSMs the information they needed to keep on top of important corporate events and policies while they were on the road.  Program ran for over eight years.

Challenge

Toyota Motor Sales wanted to provide the Service and Parts departments of Toyota dealerships with a comprehensive hiring and performance evaluation system.

Challenge

Honda wanted a fresh, innovative presentation of their 1989 line up of newly re-designed vehicles.

Solution

Inspired by the Calvin Klein "ripped jeans" campaign launched that season, BMCG trucked the complete Honda passenger vehicle line-up to Johnson Valley and put them through their paces on the dry lake bed. Brightly-colored, brand new cars emerging from huge billows of brown desert dust in slow-mo. Beauty. Majesty. Daring. This was a first for Honda and the automotive industry.  We started the trend that every other manufacturer has followed.

Challenge

A new management team.  A new name.  A new focus. The challenge became how to turn 500+ individual locations in the new direction while building positive morale and improving patient care levels.

Solution

Use video presentations featuring the top company executives clearly communicating company goals and expectations as an integral part of the turn around strategy.  In four years, BMCG produced over 70 video-based programs to help fulfill the communications challenges. The result was a unification of focus, an increase in morale and wide-ranging acceptance of the new corporate direction.

Hmmm...

Have a communication challenge that needs a novel, effective solution?
