We solve problems as a Team, Our proven Process:
Analyze and Understand
We identify and eliminate wasteful practices and non-value-added tasks across the process. We understand that your frontline staff is a valuable resource. So we leverage their experience and expertise throughout the process.
Solve Problems with Lean
We instill frontline staff the core principles of Continuous Improvement to dissect problems challenging the "status quo" this unlocks the true potential for good change "Kaizen". We then take ideas into action solving real world problems to create value.
Succeed with our Customers
We implement process standardization utilizing ADKAR "Management of Change" to ensure this becomes fundamental to the success of the event. We develop Key Performance Indicators (KPI) with built-in Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) cycles to drive sustainment and continue to improve results.
Then things get real (this is where most consultants leave)
At the end of the Kaizen Week the team reports improvements results including implementation and sustainment plans to the Leadership Team, Stakeholders and Sponsors.
We don’t just deliver documented standards and strategies.
We execute Work Breakdown Structures with measurables goals and strategies to deliver results. In fact, we’ll help audit, validate and sustain results.
