Performance Improvement Solutions that Work
80% of Performance Improvement initiates fail to hit their desired outcomes. For over 20 years we have been designing and deploying performance improvement strategies in both manufacturing and non-manufacturing settings. We have developed an approach to Lean for non-manufacturing organizations that captures the principles of Lean but considers the specific performance constraints in these environments. Our strategies are specifically designed to boost performance in government, nonprofit, and other professional services environments.
Continuous Learning Is Our Investment
We have spent decades observing, studying, implementing and analyzing operation strategies and process improvement strategies. We continue to invest time learning in strategic areas such as relationships between leaders and staff, stakeholders/organizations, process /customers, cost/value, and ethics/success.
What we have learned is that contemporary business problem solving does not have to be expensive or complicated. High costing problems do not necessarily need high costing solutions nor are high costing solutions necessarily effective solutions. Most companies pay a premium for brand name and historical performance that has little or nothing to do with their particular problem. It is dangerous to assume that a solution at one organization is directly applicable to another organization as each organization is unique to its people, leaders, culture, and sub-cultures.
In today’s fast-moving world of technology and data processing speed, Lean Delaware detracts from high-speed decision making to focus on the core of problem-solving – harnessing the human ability to create and innovate solutions.
We’ve learned in many instances that if a potential solution seems complicated it is probably because it is not the right fit for the organization or the problem as currently posited. But, there is a solution that is perfect for every organization and one of our core efforts is to identify “fit.”
