Performance Solutions by Milliken Launches New Rapid Improvement Approach Service


Spartanburg, S.C. — Performance Solutions by Milliken, the consulting arm of diversified global manufacturer Milliken & Company, is rounding out its service offerings with a new Rapid Improvement Approach (RI). Designed for companies in need of immediate recovery or transformation, RI pinpoints specific pillars and principles of its proprietary Performance Management System and escalates implementation with focused precision. Traditionally, Performance Solutions by Milliken practitioners apply the Performance Management System in total over a longer term engagement.

“Our proven Performance Management System, honed over decades of implementation within Milliken itself and transferred to companies around the world, delivers critical results and full performance solutions over the course of one to two years,” states Phil McIntyre, managing director of Performance Solutions by Milliken. “This RI service concentrates our efforts to designated pillars deemed critical for rapid results and scales down our scope to unlock measurable change in more concise timeframes.”

As the Editor’s Choice winner of Manufacturing Technology Insights’ 2020 Top Lean Manufacturing Consulting/Service Companies list, Performance Solutions by Milliken is known for its collaborative approach to strengthening and improving client company operations.

RI provides a new connection point for companies in need of assistance.

“Our RI service is a new entry point for those looking to enhance operations by utilizing tried-and-true solutions,” adds Jeff Price, executive vice president for Milliken. “It does not replace our comprehensive operational excellence consulting track, but rather provides an express approach to target specific needs as companies work to keep pace with their rapidly changing markets.”
