Are time, labor, materials, and other resources being used as effectively as possible?
Are you eliminating wasteful activities that provide no value to you or your customers?
Do you know how to develop leaner processes to better serve your customers and cut costs?
I can help. I build gentle partnerships with organizations to position them to analyze, stabilize, and reengineer processes that work for them and for their customers.
We offer a variety of process improvement workshops that can be customized to meet your needs or even designed using your organization’s data and materials.
We’ll reduce variation and uncertainty in processes, identifying root causes.
We’ll follow a clear, five-step process: Define > Measure > Analyze > Improve > Control
We’ll implement world-class solutions that address your operational problems.
Whether something has gone off the rails or you're ready to take the next step in expansion, it may feel overwhelming. After listening deeply to your vision and needs, we will work together to formulate a custom plan to effectively address them.
Team member shadowing, process and workflow mapping, and flow charting.
Planning, putting the project plan into action, and measuring progress and performance.
Documenting processes, testing documentation, and training staff in process use.
Gap analysis and targeted project support to stabilize operations and create a plan of action.
For change to be effective, it must align with the culture. I work closely with team members in offices and in manufacturing facilities to align goals and expectations.
I am an ASQ-certified Six Sigma Black Belt with three U.S. patents. I know how to implement continuous improvements and turn ambitious ideas into reality.
Process reengineering is just the beginning. Using a hands-on approach, I’ll upskill your team and teach them how to systematize processes and work more efficiently.
Sarah is THE person you want assessing and managing the details of your project. Her forte is crafting and implementing process improvements. Nothing escapes her attention. She's not afraid to ask the hard questions, and she excels at creating strategies that lead to desired outcomes. She knows how to recognize a good idea when she hears one. Better yet, she knows how to bring that idea to life. She has my highest recommendation.Carolyn Daughters
Sarah stepped into a complicated business architecture and was able to navigate our company with results. The way Sarah thinks and processes business challenges has been beautiful to watch. It is an honor to work alongside someone with her intelligence, drive and work ethic. Our team is fortunate to have a leader that pushes the company to become better and who backs it up with data, logic, reasoning and action.Matt Rowe
I'm having difficulty finding appropriate words to thank you for realigning and expanding my work thought processes. You have reminded me that data is the "once upon a time" story starter for strategic improvement, that there are stages to becoming better, that I should trust the process and put in the work, and that chaos can be understood and from it sustainable systems can be hatched. Thank you, my friend and colleague.Brenda Maes
