Lean Competitive Manufacturing at Honeywell

Do you own or manage a factory? Image if you could:

  • boost Productivity per Employee by 40%.
  • slash Work in Process by 60%.
  • cut Scrap and Rework in half.
  • accelerate Customer Order to Deliver time by 100%.

I've achieved such results. How? By enlisting the most vital resource in any factory: People.
Together, we developed our factory team to achieve the unexpected. Read more here.

Building Benchstrength for Growth in the Automotive Industry

"Benchstrength!" The word began a decade long relationship with automotive parts giant Magna International. "We have unlimited opportunity to grow, but the bottleneck is benchstrength. We especially have a critical need for supervisors." So explained the Executive VP of Human Resources.

Magna recruited my consulting firm - Varanor International - to "carry the training torch" and build a learning culture from the ground up.

I developed people from "factory to corner office" to meet three critical challenges: 1) consolidation of the supply base, 2) pressure to absorb warranty and recall risk, 3) continual downward pressure on prices and margins.

Corporate Governance in the Energy Industry

"A well founded reputation for scrupulous dealings is itself a priceless corporate asset." I was involved in formulating the training and communication strategy to bolster corporate stewardship practices to reflect this key value at a major energy company.

Health Care Excellence

Improving patient safety and care requires leadership and a sharp focus on quality assurance. I enacted the learning strategy for Health Care Excellence that enabled a major regional hospital to achieve its Accreditation status.
