Founded in 2008, Periscope Consulting, LLC, developed the Periscope Method of achieving project success. This method combines the best people, with the best tools and practices to “see what others miss;” and bring manufacturing projects to success. In 2012, Ned founded the One Food Team to expand and focus on the food manufacturing industry. One Food Team was incorporated in 2015.
According to Ned, “We integrate into the client team becoming a seamless and transparent member. Working on behalf of the client, our loyalty is to the client alone, not to any other contractor or supplier to the project.”
Helping clients understand how to manage their project resources with excellence, One Food Team, LLC acts as a force-multiplier to a client’s team. They know what levers to pull when a client gets into trouble, and which levers to use to help avoid trouble. Client projects run more smoothly, more predictably, and with fewer crises to solve and result in more on-time, on- budget, and on-scope completions.
One Food Team brings a variety of skills to bear on operations management, from management consulting in manufacturing and compliance, brand and strategy management, social media management, training, human resources, procurement, and maintenance and engineering. Periscope provides the Project Management backbone of the team. One Food Team, LLC only sends experienced senior level professionals to perform work for their clients, which results in superior outcomes. Their experience is of great value, given low-overhead rates equivalent to less experienced support, and with no overtime, weekend pay, or holiday pay.
The company’s catchphrase is, “let our team become your team;” to highlight their integration into one’s team. For major projects where one has selected an engineering or installation firm or general contractor, their team will manage that team on their behalf as the “owner-agent.”
