25 years at General Motors, consulting, industry and health care striving to improve profitability through the use of tools continuous improvement tools, including Lean, TOC, DOE, etc.
I developed the Throughput Improvement Process at GM in 1989, which is still in use today. This process and my work with GM research helped GM win the Franz Edelman INFORMS reward in 2005.
My Goal is to help a help a company who has just realized "good enough" is no longer good enough to create a sizable, sustainable competitive advantage. This advantage will be large enough that it will leave industry observers and their competition wondering, "How the hell did they do that? And how is anyone going to catch them?"
