We begin each assignment by identifying a dedicated team to guide you through your journey to continuous performance improvement—from benchmarking to implementation. The background and depth of each team’s experience uniquely qualifies that team to work with your company. The end result of this process is achieving an enhanced level of operating excellence. We equip your personnel with the tools and foundation they need for self-sustaining, long-term improvement with best practices integrated at the core.
Collect and Compare the Data to Identify Gaps
Solomon’s in-depth benchmarking provides the “diagnostic checkup” needed to show you where your strengths and opportunities are at a high level as compared to the best of your competition.
Analyze Data to Determine Cause of Gaps
Through deeper data analysis and an on-site Best Practices Assessment, we pinpoint the parts of your business where performance improvement will have the most effective impact on your margins. During the assessment, we review your current operations against 4,000 best practices in areas such as planning, operations, maintenance, management, and organizational effectiveness (workforce optimization).
Prioritize Gap Closure
We develop a prioritized list of recommendations with estimated benefits to provide the roadmap for improvement in all areas vital to your long-term success and profitability. Included in this list are “Quick-Hit” recommendations—improvements that can be quickly implemented at no cost.
Implement Best Practices to Achieve Performance Improvement
Through on-site guidance and off-site support, we provide your team the knowledge transfer they need to implement best practices, improve performance, and achieve lasting positive changes that result in millions of dollars of sustainable margin improvements.
By adopting proven, industry best practices into your normal routines, your employees can continually search for new ways to improve performance, including maintaining keen awareness of your own performance levels and those of your competition.
