Are your teams disjointed or under trained? Do you want to strengthen your organizational culture? Could your organization benefit from an outside review or detailed audit? If so here's how I can be of service • Over 15 years’ experience in Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma • Lead over 100+ employees in driving cultural and infrastructure changes with best practices, Kaizen events • Build training standards, procedures, operational guides • Compile and use data to drive decision making • Oversee/manage growth to ensure long term organizational success • Evaluate organizational/program effectiveness, collaborate with stakeholders, train and lead teams • Perform in depth system audits and recommend corrective action • Waste elimination (defects, over processing, waiting, skill utilization, transportation, inventory, motion, and extra processing) • Variation reduction (Measurement, Method, People, Machine, Environment, and Material) Over the course of my career I have worked with some of the largest manufactures in the US food industry. My ability to improve processes is second to none. Teams I have lead have reduced defective production by 30%, reduced customer complaints by 25%. I have developed multi employees from the hourly ranks into management and several employees from supervision to mid-level management roles. Lead several multi-million dollar production expansion projects. Developed numerous training modules and best practices. Created company-wide audits that focus on risk and performance to KPIs. Reduced customer complaints by by root cause evaluation, timely feedback, and exceptional follow through. Misc. Highlights • Created a PDCA template for responses to help drive improvement • Create procedures and policy that reduced the plants shortcomings in Customer Complaints, GMP compliance, conformance to Standards, SPC, QS conformance, and sanitation while also driving attribute defect reduction. • Seven consecutive years of improvement based on all corporate quality measures • Reduce customer complaints by 25% • Lead various teams in identifying the root cause and nature of complaints to not only determine why specific complaints happen but also what characteristics and behaviors lead to the complaints. • Use product hold data to drive improvements through hourly and management employees and also conduct Kaizen events. • Reduce monthly hold inventory from over 2 million to less than 100k • Provides cost effective and strategic direction to ensure plant operations achieve or exceed requirements.
