Coaching

While training provides an understanding of needed skills, turning the new knowledge into effective action in your unique environment is often a daunting task that, if not done carefully, can limit the progress and impact of your Continuous Improvement deployment.

Coaching delivered by Proficiency Systems' team of highly experienced consultants will help your workforce apply and master their newly acquired skills, reduce the likelihood of any missteps, and accelerate the engrainment of CI across your organization.

Our coaches provide guidance, serve as sounding boards, and help ensure accountability to:

  • Deployment Leaders as they architect the structure and guide the maturation of the overall CI deployment
  • Executives and Leaders as they learn and practice their roles in championing and supporting the delivery of short-term results and long-term cultural engrainment of CI
  • Project Leaders and Process Performers as they apply new learnings to deliver needed improvements

Project Leadership

Our primary objective is developing your organization's internal CI capabilities, however there will likely be times when you need to tackle a specific critical problem, but don't yet have the bandwidth of skilled people to lead the effort.

We can provide the needed Project Leadership when internal resources aren't available. All of Proficiency Systems's consultants are certified at the Master Black Belt, Lean Master, and/or PMP level and have led numerous successful projects.

We Can Help Your Organization Excel!
