Op Excellence was founded by Milt Burton. With 30+ years of experience in a variety of industries and a variety of positions including industrial engineering manager, corporate strategist, Controller and Administrative Officer, and Chief Financial Officer. Examining countless improvement projects, Mr. Burton concluded that many organizations are unable to achieve the results they need no matter how much effort they put into it. Although many report significant improvements, very few have any bottom-line impact. In many cases clients invested millions of dollars on the promise of significant improvements. Although the improvements were documented, the bottom-line remained unchanged. Under performance continued and management was frustrated.
How can this be? Invariably, the reason for successful projects that failed to generate results could be traced to improvements that targeted issues that were not constraining the results of the organization. Understanding how to manage the factors that constrain profit and cash flow is critical to achieving meaningful results from improvement efforts. We work with our customers to identify and implement the critical few interventions that will drive positive cash flow and profitability.
