Rail People

Nothing could be considered more essential to the human story than transportation. It has shaped the world as we know it, driven our cities forward, and embodied the spirit of innovation more than any other industry in the last 200 years. But at Proudfoot, we think the best is yet to come.

We see a very exciting path laid out in front of bus, rail, and air transit agencies. There’s tremendous untapped potential still to be realized through digitization, improving employee retention, capturing and centralizing institutional knowledge, and solving the people challenge of maintenance.

In our experience, to get the full benefits of any improvement initiative it’s crucial to engage your people in a way that not only enables them to embrace change, but helps them feel invested in the outcome so they lead the change themselves. Only this ensures your hard-won results will be sustained.

I’d like to share more about how this different approach accelerates and solidifies operational improvement for transit organizations.
