Business process improvement for climate-tech scale-ups

ARVID JOHN

With my experience in scaling up business processes we identify the suitable path of growth for your business. Together we develop the structures you now need, so that your company reaches the next level.

Optimize your business processes

Significant hiring

Are you hiring more and more employees, but productivity per person seems to go down? Despite onboarding efforts?

Why I am the right person for you and how I will help you forward.

Close to profitability

Is your scale-up not quite profitable yet? Do your investors want you to become cash-positive soon, without additional capital investment?

Preparing digitalization

Are you about to automate some of your processes, like accounting, lab documentation or hiring?

Going from “one to many”

Are you about to multiply your output by going from one to many (e.g. teams, plants, franchises)?

Why I am the right person for you and how I will help you forward.

Significant hiring

The more employees you hire, the more productivity per person goes down? Despite onboarding efforts? With every person, complexity and cost of communication rise exponentially. Avoid corporate structures, although your managers may be most familiar with those! Scale-ups do need management systems which scale up at minimal overhead and effort. Agil, Scrum, Lean, Performance Management, daily huddles: Different names for one principle to form the right culture. The result in lab, production and office: Flexibility, self-organization and everyone focuses on the important results. The prerequisite: A deep understanding of the invisible foundations of this principle. Contact me, to avoid the common mistakes.

Close to profitability

Are you just not quite profitable yet? Do you need to achieve positive cashflows without further capital investment? As Start-Up processes are optimized using technology, as this yields biggest results. If your technology remains constant, the very different challenge is to optimally organize your operations around it. This helps to „work smarter, not harder“ and reduces defects, cost and increases productivity at the same time. Critical for profitability and can be achieved with a variety of methods! Daily improvement-routines, Workshops to redesign processes and „Six Sigma“-projects: I can lead those for you and enable your employees to do the same.

Preparing digitalization

Are you about to automate some of your processes, like accounting, lab documentation or hiring? Every process contains wastes, known as 7 types of activities which are not adding value to any customer! You don’t want to automate wastes, thus identify and remove as many as possible upfront. This also helps you identifying which digital solution is best and sometimes makes the process so easy, that you can postpone investing in software. The most efficient approach is a well prepared and facilitated workshop of typically 1-2 days.

Going from “one to many”

Are you about to multiply your output by going from “one to many” (e.g. teams, plants, franchises)? Obviously the perfect moment to optimize your processes! Smart scientists and engineers develop ground-breaking technologies. But to develop practical working standards requires a different way of thinking! With my support, you will easily use the experience of your team to develop short and most relevant work-instructions. This happens in 3 steps 1. short workshop 2. pragmatic iterations 3. visual documentation. If you scale truly large, ask me about the tablet-oriented eLearning, which your employees can (re-)watch at work.

Working with me as a sparring partner & coach

Why am I the right person for you? The above insights I gained from 10+ years as consultant in Lean, Agile and SixSigma, mostly for pharmaceutical companies. Additionally I contribute my experience gained on the board of an established family-owned manufacturer, from running my own Consulting and being Business Angel for a climate-tech startup. As coach I help you to avoid mistakes. Listening with heart and mind, I recognize where you need a new perspective, when a little provocation brings you forward, but also if your own doubts are not supporting you. Let’s find out together, what’s the next thing for you to do, get my support with planning and execution and develop yourself professionally and as a person.
