Expect Results…

  • The Organizational Design project evaluated the effectiveness of the plant to meet customers’ needs in the most cost efficient manner. By conducting a thorough analysis of the organizational structure and each position’s responsibilities, we were able to eliminate duplication of efforts, eliminate non-value added work, and redistribute responsibilities to improve efficiencies and reduce production and service cycle times. The organization was restructured to drive employee empowerment. The decision process was simplified by removing obstacles (i.e. layers of management) and improving communications. Clear expectations and decision parameters were set, and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) were established thereby enabling the company to monitor and sustain its performance improvements. Through the combined efforts of cross sectional teams, realized over $20M in cost reductions over five years for the industrial park with multiple Fortune 500 tenants.
  • Project included the operations’ guidance in the design review and approval, construction, commissioning and startup of a multi-million dollar chemical manufacturing unit as well as the construction of the international containers used in the transport of the hazardous material. Unit successfully started up on time and within budget.
