Process Improvement

Improving processes can have greater value and more immediate impact on profitability than growing sales.  And, effective processes are a key to providing quality products and services.  Elusen can help identify the root cause of problem areas, work with your team to design and implement solutions and then measure the improvement.

Examples of Process Improvement initiatives lead by Ms. Landry include:

  • Item Change Request Process (Prime-Line Products) - Lead a cross-functional team to streamline roles, responsibilities, communication and processes, saving the company 100s of thousands of dollars each year.
  • Customer Complaint Process (Prime-Line Products) - Work with a cross-functional team to create a closed-end process to resolving and tracking customer complaints; create procedural documents and provide user training.


Training

Training is an investment that can pay big dividends.  Elusen, Inc. has been developing and delivering customized curriculum for over 10 years. Depending on the topic, curriculum  may be developed as team, translating complex concepts from subject matter experts into easily understood exercises.  Or it may be developed independently by Elusen and shared with your team.

Training delivery is critical to overall success.  Ms. Landry believes in a fun, collaborative learning process that engages the heart, as well as the mind, and where participants talk more than the trainer.

Examples of customized training developed and delivered by Ms. Landry include:

  • Process Documentation Training (Prime-Line Products) - Six modules, including Active Listening, SMART goals and Continuous Improvement
  • Interviewing People with Developmental Disabilities (CSU Sacramento & Kinetic Flow Corp) - CSU Sacramento was awarded a contract to interview people with developmental disabilities throughout the state.  Ms. Landry worked with subject matter experts to design and deliver training to ensure meaningful results.
