With a finite amount of natural resources, companies need to find innovative ways to meet the demands of their industry. We seek out the places in your organization where you can accelerate performance, reduce costs, and improve both delivery and margins. Our immersive approach promotes collaboration within and is proven to continuously add value.
Install a culture of continuous improvement and increase delivery
We have worked with a number of growing companies in the Natural Resource sector. Clients in this industry often operate in particularly volatile environments and must be able to quickly react to threats and opportunities to ensure their leadership position. Additionally, there is a constant need for safety, maintenance and workflow management practices.
We have worked with our clients in developing a holistic workforce planning model that serves to improve business processes through resource utilization, maintenance scheduling, optimizing systems, building staff skills, and enhancing communications throughout the organization. During projects, our clients were able to resolve underlying maintenance task backlog before implementing effective and scalable processes that promote future growth.
Our approach ensures that your people are the key drivers of the change
Defined Key Performance Metrics (KPIs) – we will create a framework to identify the Key Metrics including Service Levels, Productivity, Speed and Quality for Key Processes. These measures can be used to determine the current level of performance as well as measure the success of the implementation.
Review of Current Practices and Tools – Propel will conduct a thorough as-is analysis from which we can then design sustainable solutions. This includes mapping key processes, gathering and analyzing financial/operating data, conducting direct observations and mapping out management tools.
