Comprehensible, Success-proven Interventions at Central Sources of Flaws
The effective action close to the operational reality is typical for Juergen Schaefer Business Consulting.
The starting point is always the causative source of interference, which affects all subsequent processes.
The experienced view onto the production, the warehouse, the material management, on set-up times, and rejects but also in the project management quickly finds the core of the problems.
We also examine the hard indicators of cost, quality, and reliable resources. Based on a differentiated diagnosis, we conduct a gradual reorganization according to strategic priorities and the principle of maximum effect with minimal effort. Commonly speaking, to solve those issues, you will neither need large investments nor company-wide restructurings.
The widening of the ‘bottleneck’ already initiates first crucial improvements regarding the entire process chain.
We achieve these results via punctual corrections in technology, processes, communication flows, and decision paths.
Avoidable friction losses due to ‘human false positives’, will be eliminated constructively and with priority. They are responsible for 15–20% of diminished outputs. By doing so, we also consider the interfaces human - machine and human - organization.
Opportunities will be identified by constructively involving all relevant levels - from worker to boss. We always use the language of the concerned party. Comprehensive, high-impact unfoldings motivate employees and convince decision-makers of the benefits of change. Clear decisions frameworks ensure the procedure, while group agreements improve cooperation amongst affected employees and departments.
