For almost 50 years, Sandholm Associates has been a leading provider of knowledge in quality management, continual improvements and excellence. Our main business has always been in Sweden, but training and consulting has been conducted in more than 45 countries. People from more than 100 different countries have participated in our courses and workshops. Sandholm Excellence Center is Sandholm Associates' new international affiliate, part of a stronger global focus.

Sandholm Excellence Center works with the most cutting-edge concepts and methodologies in quality and improvement. For many years, Sandholm has been Sweden's leading source for teaching Six Sigma and Lean. Our way of working is results-driven rather than method-driven, offering a deep understanding of quality and improvement. Our knowledge is built on many years of research and practical experiences.

Sandholm Excellence CenterĀ“s consultants constantly strive to help the customer find the best combination of methods and tools suited to the individual organization.  Our consultants work closely with clients to establish a strong quality and improvement culture that lasts over time in the customer's organization.  Crucial to success is using our well-developed concepts, methods, and skills to develop strategy, structure, and culture simultaneously.  

In our work, we often help our clients to:
  • develop managers' skills and understanding of fact-based and customer-oriented improvement work,
  • train and develop specialists as quality professionals, improvement leaders and process developers, and
  • support activities in developing a value-creating quality and improvement culture throughout the organization.

Our clients are varied in scope, and include industrial companies and service organizations, government organizations and private companies both large and small.  Through our global network, education and consultancy support can be provided in many different languages.
