Each Program is Unique

Every client has their own mix of brands, locations, and requirements, so we offer tailored solutions. Our management consultants develop performance improvement recommendations that are mindful of your service offerings and culture. Changes are carefully developed and implemented alongside your local leaders, in order to create the ownership necessary for sustained improvement.

How We Work with You

During our unique 2-week opportunity analysis phase, our consulting team uncovers and quantifies processes, management systems, and organizational behavior issues that might be eroding your service levels, ability to generate revenue and profitability. From there a more tailored and extensive project engagement serves to validate opportunities, jointly develop solutions, and implement best practices.

Sustainable and Measurable Improvements

Rather than just deliver our findings and recommendations to you in a report, our consultants actively assist with implementation while coaching, training, and supporting leaders. This ensures the benefits and underlying changes will continue long after we are gone. The performance improvement is carefully tracked, to ensure results are realized in financial performance and satisfaction metrics. Results from our engagements meet or exceed initial expectations over 90% of the time.

INDEPENDENT, LUXURY RESORT & CASINO – Supply Chain

Carpedia Hospitality was asked to explore various ways to enhance value through operational performance at our client’s trophy hotel asset on the Las Vegas Strip.
