Innovate

Announcing the first scientifically-based service to help manufacturers significantly grow their businesses: Eureka! Winning Ways is a simple yet disciplined approach that quickly identifies and validates new ideas to increase top-line revenues, using proven idea-creation and deployment methodology.

Developed by the #1 growth expert in the country and delivered by a TMAC manufacturing expert—or growth coach, Eureka! Winning Ways is the only program of its kind that has been customized and refined specifically for Texas smaller manufacturers, and is making a dramatic difference in how companies are growing.

Plenty of workshops offer ideas. But E!WW scientifically tests ideas and provides action planning and coaching to research and develop those ideas so companies can decide quickly if and how to implement them.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

  1. In one day, your team will generate more than 50 ideas for growth (for new marketing messages, new markets, and new products)
  2. You’ll receive scientific research on your top four ideas that identifies the two most likely to succeed
  3. You will be coached through a 30-day discovery process to validate those ideas for development and delivery.
  4. You’ll have the data to decide whether or not to move your idea into development, and start the cycle again with another set of ideas.

WHATS YOU’LL GET

You’ll walk away with a process that can be used over and over. You’ll learn how to:

  • Invigorate your team toward action and ownership
  • Sort and filter ideas to identify those worth pursuing
  • Develop a 30-day action plan that will make it easy to move ideas into production, or to kill them before they suck up more time and resources»Ignite the cycle of growth

Our guarantee: you’ll generate at least 50 measurably smarter choices for growth AND identify two top ideas that are scientifically likely to succeed. You succeed, or at no additional cost, we work with you until you do.

Finance

R&D TAX CREDIT

The 2008 TARP bill Congress passed in October 2008 contained a line item tax credit for manufacturers who have implemented process improvements or R&D. The credit is retroactive for open tax years plus 2009. Manufacturers that spent employee time and out-of-pocket expenses implementing Lean, ISO, new dies, new raw materials or new equipment are eligible for the credit. R&D also qualifies for the credit. TMAC provides a free, no obligation assessment to any interested company.

INCOME/OUTCOME

The Income/Outcome 6-hour workshop uses a fast-paced business simulation to teach management and employees how to make wise financial decisions to increase cash, sales revenue and profits.

Participants form teams to learn how to create, read, interpret and use their team’s Balance Sheet, Income Statement and financial ratios. Within the first 15-minutes of the workshop everyone is creating their own Balance Sheet!

  • Participants compete with other teams to win sales orders by creating bids based on sales price, payment terms, capacity or product features.
  • Participants are given options to invest in Lean, Quality, product customization, alternative raw material or increased capacity
  • Participants learn the positive and negative consequences of their decisions as well as the other teams.
  • Everyone has the satisfaction of watching their financial statements emerge on the simple game board.
  • Participants engage in the day-to-day activities necessary to sustain a business such as purchasing, collections, payables, debt management and financial reports while working within a team building environment.
  • Income/Outcome is not an accounting class. Instead it teaches everyone how to positively impact accounting reports.
  • The team with the most Retained Earnings at the end of the workshop wins the game.
