As the owner of a business that provides human resource, payroll and benefits to more than 300 companies, I was concerned that our growth was outstripping our ability to service our clients effectively. Engaging Erik Young has helped us to solve those potential problems. Through training and engaging our employees in Lean Six Sigma process improvement, we improved processing capability and eliminated issues that were constraining productivity. By educating our team members in Lean Process Improvement, every team member was proud of their accomplishment because they all participated in the process. Because the process is dynamic, we continuously are able to address new problems faster and accomplish better results. -- Michael P. Colucci, Chief Executive Officer, Idilus LLC
