Operational Assessment at Excalibur

In medicine, until the development of the van Leeuwenhoek microscope, microorganisms could not be seen. Similarly in healthcare systems, until the “lens of LEAN Systems” was available, assessments only described the symptoms of poor performance, but could not clearly see the underlying causes. Excalibur’s Operational Assessment combined with

 

best-in-class benchmarking and knowledge of Lean Systems is the first step in identifying process improvement opportunities that previously could not be seen.

 

In our partnership with Strategic Planning MD, Excalibur applies comprehensive assessment and benchmarking methods to identify significant opportunities for improved performance in these areas:

  • Business Strategy
  • Financial Performance
  • Operational Effectiveness

 

Effective assessment more clearly identifies and prioritizes opportunities for significant performance improvement and minimizes any wasted time, effort or resources.

 

 

Just as a Physician will not treat a Patient until he or she has assessed the Patient, we at Excalibur similarly recommend that we have the opportunity to observe your process and independently understand the current behavior of your system.

 

 

 

 

 

We recognize that based on your history of process improvement experience that you have unique needs. The table below summarizes our typical sequence of assessment, education, implementation and mentoring.
