WillowTree Advisors Provider of Business Transformation Services
Employing Lean and Six Sigma techniques, WillowTree offers a way to rapidly assess any back office operation (e.g. IT, HR, F&A, procurement, customer service and sales) and identify improvements that will make the organization more effective and efficient.
“If your organization is feeling sluggish, needs to get rid of redundant processes or has disengaged employees, it’s time to make a change,” said Kathryn Douglass, WillowTree Advisor managing partner. “All businesses need to take a look at their operations on a regular basis to determine if improvements need to be made, technologies need to be updated and organizations and delivery models reviewed and adjusted.”
The WillowTree Advisors team addresses business needs, eliminates waste and creates swift business value and change. They help organizations lead a successful transformation by linking refreshed activities to the business strategy, transforming approaches for customized environment, and developing an overall approach to managing change in the workplace.
“The application of Lean techniques to business processes can save time, reduce waste and eliminate costs – while improving customer and employee satisfaction,” said Douglass.
During the upcoming Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence (RMPEx) Forum, a number of these best-in-class organizations will share their stories, insights, and lessons learned. These organizations have been previously recognized at the national level via the Baldrige National Quality Award program and/or at the regional level via the CPEx Award program.
CPEx, the Colorado Performance Excellence program, was fashioned after the Baldrige National Quality Award program, and is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
