LEEPsm to Organized, Efficient Change
Six Sigma pursues process improvement through the identification and elimination of defects, with specific financial and production targets. To facilitate this transition, the Operari Group has developed LEEP – a proven process for discovering and implementing opportunities for performance improvement.
LEEP stands for Lean methods for Effective and Efficient Performance. The process finds more efficient, cost-effective means to achieve improved product and service quality. LEEP starts with a thorough examination of the organization to determine targeted goals.
The assessment phase examines current personnel, operations and reporting processes to discover key pivots. Depending on client needs, Operari has a full suite of assessment tools to establish and measure key benchmarks in productivity and performance. Based on these results, Operari can set measurable goals.
Achieving goals requires a strategy for change. Processes may need adjustment, information systems may need fresh programming, people may need training. Operari is a hands-on delivery consultancy – we provide training, we have network programmers conversant in all platforms and management software and we can get involved in step-by-step process reformulation. A thorough roadmap establishes specific development phases and milestones to measure progress.
Over time, processes will evolve on their own. Generally, companies seeking change cannot wait for things to “sort themselves out.” You need to take the LEEP with Operari. In the process of developing new tools and implementing new information reporting routines, we also improve your managers and workforce. We provide a series of customized trainings that clarify the intentions, inventions and innovations that will make their company operate smoother and produce better results.
You don’t get out of bed in the morning ready to accomplish a 26-mile marathon run. It takes conditioning, nutrition and training to prepare. Performance improvement also requires an implementation process that involves monitoring, adjustment and reinforcement. You get the right tools and processes in place, then verify, verify, verify.
