About Us

East Meets West Solutions (EMWS) is a problem solving company.  Our unique approach is utilizing the power of people that currently exists inside an organization.  Solving a problem requires more than simply identifying the solution, it involves implementation and results delivery.  Throughout the process of working with a client we apply organizational change management— the process of leading people through a planned change process.  When change is planned the likelihood of success is twice as likely as unplanned change.  Our product is not a report; it is an organization that performs better.
