Consulting: Industries:: Performance Excellence for the Utility Industry
The utilities industry has its own peculiarities that require not only being an expert on Process Excellence methodologies, but also experience in the industry. At IQPM Co., our philosophy is that there is not a "one size fits all" solution. This way of thinking was born after nearly a decade of leading and implementing Performance Excellence solutions within the utility industry.
In creating a Performance Excellence deployment strategy for the utilities industry, IQPM Co. not only understands how to identify critical areas for improvement, but also how to develop and engage your people to become more effective managers and leaders. Some of the specific areas where we have assisted our energy partners are:
- Power generation and distribution
- Management and Communication of Continually Changing Rules and Regulations
- Environmental Concerns
- Optimal Utilization of Materials
- Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
- Optimization of Workforces
The personality of the industry is similar to a fast-paced supply chain with manufacturing aspects, and as such requires tools and techniques including pull systems, Kanbans, single piece flow and set-up time reduction.
At IQPM Consulting, we provide a total solution for systematic change and the "operationalization" of improvements. We focus on helping organizations solve their biggest problems by making innovative problem-solving a core competency. Companies that empower their employees in this regard typically experience tremendous benefits such as competitive advantages, organic growth and an increased ability to meet ever growing demand. We simply call this process "Performance Excellence".
Your company's path starts with a motivating need for change, a desire to make things different and better. IQPM Consulting helps you prioritize based on your strategic goals, and then employ a roadmap to reach measurable and sustainable results. This proven roadmap includes:
