Waging war on bad process

Process improvement consulting that empowers breakthrough by investing in the skills people need to make and lead change.

Empowerment is essential to any transformation.

Process improvement consulting that empowers.

Starting point

Start where you are.

When you empower others to participate, you get an honest and accurate reflection of where you currently are. Not where you think you are. Or where you think you should be. But a real assessment of where you are and what is possible.

Collaborative

Change happens by the people, not to the people.

When you empower others to participate, you get more ideas than you could possibly act on. And improvement just don’t occur through projects. It begins to occur through everyday activities, as people find ways to add value in little ways, which add up to big results.

Sustainable improvement results

Sustained results.

When you empower others to participate, not only are your results better, they are sustained longer. Because the ideas behind each change came from the people who do the work, accountability to implement the ideas and sustain the ideas will be higher.

I worked with Tom West and Green Dot at Hill Physicians in San Ramon, CA. We were in the process of revamping our informatics support model. This involved a refocus from pure education of providers and staff to one of change management. Tom was able to see my vision and tailored a plan to implement a Lean/ Six Sigma training and adoption plan for staff. Employees were trained and certified as yellow belts and we set up a program of mentorship with the goal of growing them into green and black belts. The projects that the new yellow belts were… Read more “Tailored training plan”

At the 2024 HSPI Conference in Atlanta, I participated in the design thinking workshop that provided me with enlightening and transformative knowledge. Tom West was a very engaging facilitator who gave the participants a collaborative and creative thinking atmosphere. The workshop not only provided valuable tools, handouts, examples, and techniques for problem-solving but also instilled a deeper understanding of empathy-driven design. Through hands-on templates and Tom’s hair-cutting case study with him and his boys, I gained invaluable insights into user-centric approaches that have since revolutionized my thinking on human-centered design thinking to innovation.

This course breaks it all down- the why, who, what, and how. You’ll see lots of pro tips related to assembling a team, best practices for each step in the process, and pitfalls to avoid.
