Often when we focus on Operational Excellence, we talk about focusing on leaner processes and business transformation – but really at the heart of it, it’s about driving the right kind of corporate culture, every day.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 17, 2019
The Austin Business Journal recently released its list of top women-owned businesses and Firefly Consulting, led by President Kimberly Watson-Hemphill, has once again made the cut. In a city that regularly takes the lead for fastest growth in the US, the field of candidates has also increased: the Austin Chamber of Commerce reported that in 2017, Austin’s economy grew an impressive 6.9%.
Now in its tenth year of business, Firefly serves a wide range of industries, with on-going projects that include healthcare, financial services, and manufacturing. Team growth has strengthened the company’s core capabilities, adding more mergers and acquisitions capacity as well as growing a European presence. Bruno Ternon, who joined Firefly in the spring, brings his recent experience as an Operational Excellence Global Deployment Leader with Amazon to his new post as European lead in Paris. When asked about his approach, he shared, “Often when we focus on Operational Excellence, we talk about focusing on leaner processes and business transformation – but really at the heart of it, it’s about driving the right kind of corporate culture, every day.”
“We’ve expanded our staff in recent months to meet an increasing demand for operational consulting services,” says Watson-Hemphill. “Assessments and consulting in the operations space continue to be the leading request from our clients. High-growth businesses are looking for a roadmap on how to achieve operational improvements, followed by rapid results. For clients that are interested in developing the internal capabilities of their team, we continue to offer Lean Six Sigma and design training programs.”
