In January, 2017, all DSI Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were red: long product lead-times; dismal on-time delivery; discontent external customers; discouraged / frustrated internal teams and our sales team was losing confidence. Recently promoted President & CEO, Kristen Knox, decided that a significant transformation was required.
Working closely with her Executive Leadership Team (ELT), along with a wide cross-section of DSI employees, our initial Strategic Improvement Plan to achieve Operational Excellence was created. Understanding lasting success requires a long-term plan and a resilient foundation, we identified four critical areas:
1.DSI’s Culture (Values)
3.Improve Operational Performance
4.Increase New Product Adoption
With intense focus and perseverance, utilizing appropriate continuous improvement tools, involving all global DSI employees and in close collaboration with our customers, we attained amazing results. Over sixteen (16) months, we slashed our lead-times and achieved desired on-time delivery allowing our customers to perform more studies (increasing their revenue) and allowing DSI to win additional business. Our external customers are increasingly satisfied with DSI’s performance. Our sales and internal teams have never been happier and more engaged.
The table below summarizes some of our results:
DSI’s pursuit of Operational Excellence is off to a tremendous start.
