Dean Russell is a certified Process Triage Facilitator. He has worked in public and private sectors as a Certified Quality Auditor and Efficacy Expert for many years. He noticed that the best programs he implemented (ISO 9001, Kaizen, Lean, Gemba Walks, Balanced Scorecards, 5S) all worked best when they were made simple and easy to understand. The worst programs created a dependence on outside experts.
In Dean’s words, “I’ve audited and helped companies grow, and audits which led to companies going out of business. I have been in the trenches for rough decisions.
After the audits, I was the messenger.
A lot of you know what happens to messengers.
That messenger frustration started my zeal for preventing train wrecks. I wanted organizations to get in front of their problems. I knew the problems were preventable and avoidable. Process Triage is the best way to mitigate problems.”
Dean is also a Traction Expert (EOS) implementer with a project management background and certified in Six Sigma. He is an expert in configuration management, leadership training, business systems, and business analysis. He has been a quality director for a medical device company with annual sales of $400 million, and COO for a wealth management firm. He has conducted keynote speeches nationwide on topics including Project Management, Time Management, Change Management, Conflict Management, and Effective Leadership. His focus is real, simple, results.
He is proud to be on the Process Triage team.
