At Applied Performance our job as Operations and Lean consultants is very simple: we work with Alberta companies to make productivity happen.
Our support can cover any situation from plant layouts, Lean supervision and high-performance teams, value stream mapping and kaizen improvement events to 5S implementation. We work with companies in many fields such as manufacturing from brewers to machine shops, service companies from IT to financial services groups, and operations from maintenance to medical imaging teams.
Every engagement has the same goals; improve workflow, untangle work process and engage staff to improve productivity and quality.
Lean and Six Sigma training and coaching – We recognize every team is different and so are able to adapt our training offerings to meet your team and situations needs. Typical training offerings are Lean 101 & 102, 5S and 7+1 Wastes, Six Sigma Green and Yellow belts..
The Operations Delivery Model Training Program takes companies through a series of steps to implement an effective operations management system. The model builds from communications (information) through workplace organization and planning to quality and process improvement. It delivers an integrated core model that covers work from the start of the day to the end of the day, so work is executed as planned and ‘surprises’ are dealt with proactively and not as constant firefighting.
This unique program builds first the core operations model before then integrating operations into wider business functions and business strategy.
If your business is facing continued operational stress, then your next step is to have a conversation about what the Operations Delivery Model would mean for your company.
Successful change is not just about mapping processes and implementing tools. It’s as much about people as it is about processes. Using an approach that combines change management with the ODM and Lean tools, we are able to make change happen faster and stick quicker. We don’t wait for resistance to change to happen, change management is dealt with up front so that both of our jobs are easier.
