A long history of leadership and innovation in performance improvement.

Founded in 1968, we are the oldest quality improvement training and consulting firm in the US. We began by helping customers in the US and around the world develop and implement unique performance improvement programs. By 1972, STAT A MATRIX was known worldwide for providing excellence in training and consulting services in quality systems development, quality audits, and process quality control and reliability.

In 1977 we were hired by US FDA to help develop regulations and train their investigators. Since then, we’ve been the industry leader in assisting life sciences manufacturers at every step, from achieving compliance with FDA and international regulations to making processes more effective and efficient. Our goal, then and now, has been to enhance the quality of our customers’ products and services and help them with their performance improvement initiatives.

In 1983, Oriel (then Joiner Associates) was retained by GE in 1998 to train, coach, develop, and license Six Sigma materials. In 2001, STAT A MATRIX acquired and merged with Oriel. With this merger, STAT A MATRIX  added to our expertise in Six Sigma, Lean enterprise, leadership development, and team building.

Our CORE values start with putting clients first. 

Our organizational values guide the daily actions and decisions of our employees. These values represent the standards by which we measure how we serve our clients, treat our peers, and engage with our communities. Here are four values that matter most to us.


We build lasting relationships by doing what’s right for our clients over the long term, not what’s good for us in the short term. By listening carefully to our customers, we can fully understand their needs and transfer our knowledge so they achieve meaningful, self-sustaining results.


We listen to our stakeholders and practice what we preach. We deal ethically and fairly with everyone, and keep client information confidential. We also make the job fun along the way. These are all basic tenets that guide how we do business, and it’s what keeps clients coming back year after year.


We show respect for the people we employ, the companies we serve, and the communities in which we operate. We believe that successful teams include people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.


We develop and empower our employees to grow and prosper to their fullest potential. When our people achieve their best, clients benefit too. In today’s increasingly complicated world, we are also sensitive to the changing needs of our families and work together to maintain a high quality of life.
