About Us

Simpler Consulting, part of IBM is a professional services firm that partners with clients to drive meaningful transformations across all aspects of their business by aligning strategies, optimizing resources, streamlining operations, and instilling a culture of continuous improvement. Now teamed with IBM and Watson, Simpler brings an unmatched level of digital expertise that equips clients with an additional source of competitive advantage. For nearly 30 years, the Simpler team has worked shoulder-to-shoulder with clients to collaborate, coach and enable them to achieve rapid improvement across financial and nonfinancial performance indicators. Simpler’s true value lies in its ability to work with clients to implement systemic changes that facilitate long-term performance and sustainable growth.

Since 1996, Simpler has partnered with clients across a wide range of industries to help them cultivate a culture of continuous improvement and stimulate business-impacting results. With our proprietary Simpler Business System® — a simple yet powerful approach to Lean methodology — we deliver the skills and confidence necessary to help you continue your transformation long after our engagement is complete.

With a global client base, you'll find our coaches in key locations all over the world. No matter where your organization is located, we have someone nearby who is already familiar with the local customs, language and business culture.

Our people

Simpler coaches are experienced consultants who have all once stood where you stand today. We have people that support the entire organization, C-Suite to shopfloor who know what works and what doesn't from actually doing it, not reading about it in a textbook.

Rather than merely studying your situation and delivering recommendations, Simpler coaches work alongside your senior leaders, teaching them how to affect change and sustain improvement. Learn more about our people in Thought Leaders.

Industries We Serve


From major teaching hospitals to small medical groups, we help our clients improve quality and processes of care, achieve greater efficiencies and productivity, and boost staff morale.


Government agencies today are looking for the same kinds of efficiencies and cost-savings that commercial businesses have sought for decades. And Simpler is helping them get there.


Lean transformation is probably the best known for its benefits to the manufacturing industry, and Simpler has had outstanding success with manufacturing clients. But we've also brought the Lean process to consumer packaged goods companies, financial services organizations, private equity firms, and retail clients.
