Our Approach

Adept helps organizations implement positive and sustainable change through a three phase approach customized to fit your organization.

Adept is made up of a group of professionals with experience in a variety of disciplines. Each of our professionals has experience as a frontline management professional in a production, manufacturing, or service industry and is a full time employee of the company. Additionally, our senior consulting professionals have held middle or executive level management positions. Having this “real world” experience provides Adept professionals with a base of understanding critical to developing a working relationship with clients. Specific areas of discipline where our professionals have hands on experience are; Production and Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain, Energy Management, Environmental compliance and Safety program management. The educational make up of our professionals consist of college or university level degrees with a minimum requirement of a Bachelors of Science or Arts degree. Many of the Adept professionals hold an advanced level Masters degree.

In addition to the formal education of our professionals, Adept consultants have value added business training in lean manufacturing disciplines, effective meeting facilitation, training, and energy management systems. Additionally, each employee has been trained in our proprietary change management process that is the foundation for achieving sustainable results.

All Adept Senior Managers have experience in the consulting industry. The ability to draw on a vast pool of experience in different industries provides Adept the ability to develop creative solutions that work, and more importantly, pass this knowledge on to clients.

Our Process

Discovery
Introductory meetings are conducted with the prospective client's Senior Leadership Team to introduce Adept and to understand their business needs, priorities and objectives. We will also discuss the benefit of working together, as well as, the scope and nature of the potential opportunities.
  • Assessment
  • When we have a client who has an interest in improving the organizational effectiveness, we undertake an analysis of the operation. It takes us three to five weeks to complete the analysis. The Analysis is detailed and professional. It is designed to provide decision makers with the factual and critical data necessary to make a decision regarding the best path forward.

    “This is the information we need to make improvements, plus a summary of what it means and what its worth”! – Complex manager of a multi site chemical manufacture.

If, during the course of the analysis, we see that we can substantially improve the client’s operating and organizational effectiveness, and deliver a guaranteed return on your investment within one year after completion of the project, we submit a proposal. If you accept the proposal, then we become involved in a project.

Project Implementation

Project implementation is a time phased implementation of all of the necessary activities to bring about the favorable change in your organization. Each project is designed uniquely to address the operating deficiencies that are identified in the Analysis. Central to our Project implementation is the coaching and mentoring of your leadership and, front line management and individuals in their work environment.

Sustainability & Continuous Improvement

Sustainability of the operating improvements achieved during the project implementation phase is always a critical success factor. Business changes at a rapid pace with the ever-changing market and operating conditions. It is vital that a business keep pace by developing a continuous improvement environment.

The Coordinator Program trains at least one of the client’s people to understand and implement the change process and associated methodologies used to bring about change. In addition to this, ‘The Continuous Improvement Audit Process’ (A no cost post project follow-up process to ensure the perpetuity of the gains) will insure that the necessary behaviors are being executed after the Adept team has left the facility.
