Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
Dr. Ian Wedgwood and Donald DePasquale announced their partnership in forming Haelan Group, LLC, a management consulting firm that concentrates on performance and quality improvement within the Healthcare industry.
Wedgwood and DePasquale, both previously with Sigma Breakthrough Technologies, Inc. (SBTI), an international performance improvement firm, launched the new company to focus on the growing demand in the Healthcare industry to improve overall quality and performance through the realignment of capabilities and delivery of reliable and robust operations resulting in increased revenue and reduced costs.
Dr. Wedgwood has over 15 years of experience in guiding organizations through the difficulties of change. He has designed and led dozens of performance excellence deployments globally, in industries as diverse as healthcare, electronics, engineered materials, banking, medical devices and chemicals. He has lectured on the topic at national forums such as IHI, and ACPE, and as far afield as Hong Kong, China at the invitation of their healthcare industry leadership. Wedgwood is the author of Lean Sigma: A Practitioner’s Guide, often referenced in performance improvement classes and used on a day-to-day basis by project managers working on performance issues.
DePasquale has over 30 years of experience with diverse national, multinational and international communications firms at the management level. He was responsible for the inculcation of western-style business principles into a Central Eastern European holding company. In addition, he was part of the initial team that successfully launched COMPAQ Computer Company, becoming fastest growing manufacturing company in American history.
Together, the group brings a balance of business acumen and performance improvement methodologies that have proven to be successful in significantly improving client’s business processes and functions, while coaching leaders to new levels of competency and confidence. The group is already working at several Midwest regional hospitals on the development and implementation of their strategic plans and restructuring an Emergency Department.
Unique in their initialization is a 2-day workshop called Haelan Group LENS® Program. This program is an eyes-wide-open approach to group decision making and planning, to discover and prioritize complex, system-wide problems with multiple stakeholders to be resolved effectively and efficiently. The program follows through with the outlining of a management system and framework for continued performance improvements and resource allocation, leading to the launch of a fully functional and sustainable performance and quality improvement program.
