GrayRock & Associates, LLC
2216 East Columbine Dr
Scottsdale, AZ 85259 USA
GrayRock & Associates, LLC provides people or soft skills and technical or problem solving skills. In this way they can transform a dysfunctional team or business unit around quickly. They have created their own unique DAM Thinking construct that has proven highly effective. Plus use Tony Robbins and Bob Proctor tools and techniques as well as Tribal Leadership constructs to quickly create highly collaborative teams centered around innovative breakthroughs.

In this way the proper metrics, data, and problem solving tools can have the fastest most beneficial effect on the technical part of the business problem or opportunity. GrayRock is unique that they tackle the people side (DAM thinking) and the technical side simultaneously, and use projects to blend everything together and get results fast.
GrayRock's strength lies in its expertise in manufacturing operations, data collection, data analysis, and defining and translating problems into business opportunities that can be realized quickly. Their intent is to always focus on small, yet complex models that provide new powerful insights where the resulting decisions and new policies have a powerful impact to a business.
