LEAN/SIX SIGMA TRAINING & PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Through a strategic relationship with a local world-class consulting group, we can provide your team Six Sigma training leading to green belt certification; a huge benefit in self-directing your own internal projects to success.

LEAN ACCOUNTING

While GAAP financial statements are essential and required for external reporting, they often do not provide relevant information for management’s needs. Our team can assist you in preparing Lean-based reports that accurately reflect your operations.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

Ensuring a clear vision supported by aligned goals and strategies is critical for success. An accountable action plan to effectively execute your strategy is equally as important.

PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT

Your team needs easy access to accurate and timely information. Unfortunately financial reports are released too late to be useful. Your team needs leading indicators that communicate issues in real time.

“SMART” OFFICE

One of the most often overlooked areas to improve upon in a manufacturing business is the front office (Sales, R&D, Finance, etc.). No matter how Lean the plant may be, throughput is constrained if the front office is not working efficiently.
