Energy Industry Chooses Visual Management from Pinnacle Strategies
Plano, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/02/2013 -- Energy companies operate in a highly complex and constantly evolving landscape shaped by global economics, regulatory mandates, skill shortages, and dynamic supply and demand. Pinnacle Strategies has a demonstrated record of success helping companies in the energy industry achieve rapid, breakthrough results by strategically applying proven operations and project management expertise and methodologies.
According to Mark Woeppel, President and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, “By using Visual Management we were able to clear blockages in a choke engineering company thereby increasing revenue by $4.5 million. A leading global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry had opportunities to increase market share but was limited by engineering delays. By working with Pinnacle to apply a proven process, engineering output doubled while meetings became shorter and more productive.”
The Pinnacle-led team developed a visual project management process that became the centralized point of command and conversation for all design activity, helping engineers and their stakeholders set appropriate priorities and make rapid adjustments as customer needs changed.
With the visual process up and operating, the team shifted focus to the development of standard work processes (e.g. short, frequent ‘stand up meetings’) and performance management techniques that would allow management to effectively monitor system health and provide clear and consistent priorities.
