Consulting at Excalibur

Our consulting partnership with you begins with our observation and assessment of your current process and performance. Our goal is to diagnose and understand your culture, your process and the systems in which they operate. This provides the foundation for our recommendations on how to most effectively improve your performance

 

including staff education, computer based modeling of the process and selection of appropriate process improvement systems and tools.

 

In our development and implementation of a Lean System, we are guided by the original, undiminished, unadulterated approach practiced by Taiichi Ohno and Shigeo Shingo. We don’t "think" Lean, we don’t "story tell" Lean and we don’t waste the Client's resources by doing Lean "cheerleading". We help make healthcare organizations be Lean.

 

Throughout our work, we always keep sight of the elimination of waste and NonValue Added Work in the process. We also recognize that the real potential of a Lean System lies in its implementation as a system. A Lean System is not a random selection of Lean Tools chosen from a list. Seeds planted the correct depth at the right time of the season in good soil with adequate sunlight, watering, fertilizer and pest control stand a good chance of becoming a successful garden. Seeds thrown on the ground with the initial addition of a little water are simply not likely to be productive. In our first Lean implementation activities, we apply a “suite of foundation Lean elements”. We then progressively apply additional Lean elements as needed by the process. We fully appreciate the difference between a true Lean System and “Lean Lite”.
