Keith Launchbury & Associates provides professional consulting and educational services to global organizations in a wide variety of differing industries.
Typical consulting engagements begin with an Operational Capability Assessment which is used to determine the organization's state of readiness for global competition. The next step is to identify a step by step Organizational Improvement Plan to strengthen areas of core competence, to develop capabilities which are lacking, and to enhance performance in all areas of business. Together with the client we agree on key performance indicators and establish a baseline for performance measurement.
Once the plan is approved we will guide and monitor the project on a regular basis (typically during a monthly review). Use of the Operational Capability Assessment and the Organizational Improvement Plan ensures that a realistic goal of increased competitiveness becomes a reality within a manageable timeframe.
We support the people's need for change with consulting and educational services designed to develop the planning and organizational skills of the workforce to compete in global markets. We believe that World Class Operations can only be achieved by a World Class Workforce combined with a World Class Supply Network using excellent planning and control techniques. We teach the concepts of Enterprise Resource Management, Lean/Six Sigma, Total Quality, and the best practices in Supply Network Management.
We also provide in-house certification review courses for companies seeking to have their people become Certified in Production and Inventory Management, Certified as Supply Chain Professionals, and Certified in Demand Driven Planning and Leadership.
