Today, organizations have to:
- Be successful in providing their customers with quality products and services, on time while remaining cost competitive.
- Innovate, by continually seeking and developing new value propositions for customers.
Having advised organizations in multiples sectors for more than 35 years, we’ve come to understand that company transformations require an organization-wide strategy, absent of boundaries, encompassing clear evidence of employee involvement initiatives, and a continuous creation of robust resource and operational capabilities.
Far from being merely a set of tools or projects, Operational Excellence is a journey, based on trust and teamwork, where traditional hierarchical relationships give way to one of joint commitment and accountability where everyone in the organization is working towards a shared vision, towards flow management and efficient processes. It is the constant pursuit of changing obsolete, inefficient processes and behaviors within the organization, all supported by new management systems.
While not hard to understand, this approach is often difficult to implement. It requires the development of new perspectives and management routines up and down your entire value chain. It is a dynamic and organic journey which will lead an organization to better develop and utilize its human talents, and improve its ability to learn, innovate and reliably and continually meet customers’ expectations.
Our approach is collaborative! We work with your leadership team to understand your current state and overall objectives then create an implementation plan to close the gaps.
Our approach encompasses the entire organization and includes developing the capabilities of your people to improvement of your existing processes. We listen, develop, implement, coach and advise, and in the process transfer our know-how ensuring you have ownership of the improvement process.
For more than 38 years we’ve been helping organizations, large and small across a wide variety of industries, to create the business environment and culture necessary to achieve their objectives.
