In partnership with ACT-Leadership DHI can manage full corporate change programmes from the first stage of working with the Top Management team in a complete review and potential revision of Strategic Corporate planning through every stage of implementation through to direct employees, the entire supply chain, the distribution process and customer collaboration.

Based on the principles outlined in David Hutchins highly recommended book Hoshin Kanri which underpins the corporate change programme at Gatwick Airport amongst others, and the ground breaking Leadership Programmes developed by ACT-Leadership we can take your organisation to world class in whatever field.

David Hutchins implementing TQM to 40 companies simultaneously in Egypt mid 1980s


Over the past three decades David Hutchins has implemented full scale company wide and top down TQM programmes to literally hundreds of companies in over 40 countries across the world.

Single handedly following a series of top team workshops David has trained trainers and facilitators in organisations to run their own programmes and not to be consultant dependant at a fraction of the fees charged by large consulting companies and in most cases far more effectively.
