Sprick Group is a management consultancy that serves the medical laboratory industry. Our work centers on strategic business planning, laboratory startups, operational improvement, consolidation studies for integrated delivery systems and outreach program development.
We are industry leaders in advancing Lean techniques into the lab and pioneers in Lean facility design and Lean performance improvement engagements.
Step OneLean Laboratory Assessment™
This evaluation determines the lean state of laboratory operations through measurement and observation.
From spaghetti diagrams to a complete diagnosis of your laboratory processes, both strengths and weaknesses.
Current findings are used to develop realistic improvement recommendations and plans. When assessing your lab, we utilize data to make operations more streamlined and efficient.
Step TwoLean Laboratory Process Improvement™: Kaizen
We focus the majority of our time onsite to ensure a successful implementation.
We understand that people support what they create, which is why we build in two levels of training throughout the implementation phase.
This program moves the identified opportunities into reality through a 14-week kaizen implementation process, training and facilitating your internal team on lean methods and tools.
Step ThreeLean Laboratory Training™
We believe very strongly in teaching Lean to others and not simply doing it for them.
We train and facilitate internal work groups to foster teamwork and motivate people to identify and solve problems.
We provide customized training, whether an orientation for executives to actively drive lean management or training sessions for managers responsible for leading/managing the change process to Lean.
