Wepfer and Associate, LLC, focuses on more than just the new technology or innovation to assure success. Innovating and implementing technology requires change. We focus on how the new capabilities will change peoples work habits, require new processes and structures, and how the organization will function differently. Technology is the easy part, computers do what they are told to do. People don't. And the processes are normally forgotten.
Wepfer and Associates is a sole proprietor consulting firm. This means that Ruth Wepfer, as the only employee, will work with every firm from the beginning of an engagement to the completion to obtain the highest quality results. We have established relationships with many other providers in the region to supplement our services when required.
Ruth has a strong background focusing on Information Technology (IT) and new product development. Ruth has led IT departments and strategies at several companies and has a good business acumen that ensures IT supports the business objectives. In the IT area, she has experience overseeing strategy development, process improvements, organizational development, technical infrastructure, EPR systems, and development of technologies and systems. In new product development, she has experience implementing the "stage gate" process for the development and commercialization of products. In addition, she has experience with Program Management Offices (PMO) that prioritize initiatives focusing on those with the highest value for the organization.
Ruth believes the real value of technology is realized when it is combined with best business practices and improving processes. She has continually been on the forefront of improvement methods including reengineering, quality circles, best practices, six sigma and lean.
