I wanted to let you know how much help Ned has been to me with the new Maximo system, showing me how to navigate when I have had problems and explaining ways to use the new reorder report to save time.· He not only knows Maximo inside out, but seems to know Sequel as well.· He has been an excellent choice and has helped me through a difficult time during this upgrade, not only with training, but also with interacting with Dave to communicate our needs in a timely and concise way.· Thought you’d want to know how effective he has been.

We see what others don’t


What if on your next project you had your entire team – from engineering to operations working together to save time, money, and energy?

As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate trained for one of the most dangerous jobs on earth (running nuclear submarines) helped me see how this could be a reality.
On a submarine, everything must be done right, and on-time is not optional.

From the maintenance crew to the captain – everyone onboard must understand how the nuclear submarine works.

When something bad happens during a shift in the middle of the night, there isn’t time to wake the Captain and Engineer before taking calm, sure, immediate actions.. You can’t “call the head office” to figure things out. In the time it takes to look something up in a manual, the sub could sink.
Immediate action and teamwork are essential. There’s a reason why Nuclear Submarine officers are some of the best problem solvers in the world

Since leaving the Navy. I’ve adapted this advanced problem-solving methodology to help some of the largest companies solve challenges in the food processing industry.

We see what others don't

A periscope is a special tool used on a submarine to allow them to see above the surface, above the waves, to see what otherwise would not be seen. The user must be trained, not merely to raise and lower the “scope” but more importantly, to quickly recognize what they see, and act decisively on that information. In this same way, projects by Periscope Consulting utilize special tools to see what otherwise would not be seen, and we have training and experience to act decisively on that information.

We specialize in executing large, complex projects in the highly regulated food processing industry. Our background positions us to provide related services in Regulatory Compliance Programs, Maintenance Systems and Training. Finally, we are domestic and international leaders in the new field of Food Defense (Intentional Adulteration), leveraging our experience in process design, project management and compliance programs.
