The term Process Excellence can be ambiguous but, at its core, it means doing the right things in an efficient and cost-effective way to serve your customers’ needs in a manner aligned with your stated strategy. While this sounds easy, there is no one prescription for success when it comes to business process improvement. Companies can commit considerable amounts of resources to implementing the newest buzz term but, at the end of the day, if it does not fit your situation and align with how you compete, the effort will be inefficient and ineffective.
Through helping hundreds of clients improve their processes, Clarkston Consulting has seen firsthand what works best in particular situations. Our consultants specialize within our two industries, Life Sciences and Consumer Products, and through this focus have been able to hone in on process approaches that work best and meet the needs specific to our target industries. At the same time, our consultants are always learning new methods and ways to tailor these approaches to maximize their efficiency for our clients. Cross-industry experience has become more valuable in recent years, allowing Clarkston to take some of the best lessons derived from our Life Sciences experiences to Consumer Products and vice versa. Whether it involves a drug manufacturer that needs to implement a trade promotions approach for an on-the-shelf medicine or a food company dealing with new regulations, each of our industries can learn from each other and our consultants’ experience can be invaluable across industries.
