Quality of life is the key to sustainable performance improvements.
We utilize a Business System approach to provide unique solutions to sustainably improve our client’s performance. This Business System approach allows us to be effective in any vertical market with asset-intensive organizations.
We are experts in the technical processes, tools and data analytics necessary to identify sub-par performance with equipment and the processes used to operate and maintain that equipment.
Also certified in advanced integrative psychology including Neuro-Linguistic Programming with the extensive background in change management, implementation and organizational psychology needed to ensure client personnel understand and accept the changes to be implemented.
This buy-in is crucial to the longevity and sustainability of the changes that are needed and that will be implemented.
Potential return on investment opportunities include increases in revenue, reductions in cost, increases in efficiency, increases in regulatory margin, etc.
Expected return on investment is determined, agreed up and set as the goals for the project. Actual return is tracked and action taken if those expectations are not being met. Our objective is client projects will have a payback period of less than one year.Contact Us for More Information
We help our clients drive sustainable excellence in equipment performance through our proprietary processes
- Group equipment that supports specific functions
- Determine the functional importance of equipment in these groups
- Establish effective condition monitoring based preventive maintenance to ensure this equipment consistently meets required levels of performance and
- Establishment of monitoring schemes so that the exacting health of equipment is known at all times.
We use a Five-Phase Engagement Model to conduct all change activities.
The first phase is where we help our clients improve their awareness of where they are and where they are headed. This process shines light onto some inherent blind spots, strategic strengths and potential risks.
The second phase is where we interpret and analyze the data and work with our clients to identify patterns, inconsistencies, root causations and opportunities. This phase identifies key performance gaps and improvement opportunities.
The third phase is where we work with our clients to identify the most impactful changes as well as strategic and tactical approaches to create and sustain improvements. From there we work together to design their custom delivery plan.
The fourth phase brings together a team of experts, professionals and specialists to work with our clients to implement their designed solutions and transfer knowledge to our clients and their employees, so they can sustain the changes.
The final phase is where we provide insights and lessons learned as well as identify the next progressive steps in improving and streamlining profitability.
“We tried doing this project several times in the past on our own and could not get it done. As it turned out, the cost to have you do the project was much less than we have already spent, and we are still getting benefits from your work. Good lesson for us when making future decisions.”
