Team effectiveness through OKRs

Are you hiring significantly? Or do you wish to accomplish more with your current co-founders and team? Do you observe too many misunderstandings, a lack of shared commitments or communication becoming too slow? You may have heard from small-to-medium companies around you about “Objectives-and-Key-Results” (OKRs) already. This method helps to strike the balance of thorough-yet-fast communication and keeps everyone focused on what matters now. I help you setting the system and routines up, so you establish a scalable management culture. Once well established, you can – and should – continuously adapt them.

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.

Solve problems

Do you face tough-to-solve problems in pilot, manufacturing or lab processes? Companies of course solve problems all of the time, but some problems are more difficult to solve than others! I have applied more than 100 problem solving tools, covering every aspect from truly understanding the customer requirement over analyzing the problem and it’s cause all the way to solving and sustaining the solution. If you face tricky problems, let’s explore which tools you need to solve them thoroughly and quickly.

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.
