What Our Clients Say

“…words just don’t do justice to how much we value our association with you and various members of the NLP team. Primarily your leadership, tenacity, knowledge, expertise, commitment, bed side manner and general willingness to get into the weeds with us, roll up your shirt sleeves and lead the way gave our team so much to work with.
My entire team is better for knowing and hanging with you!”

“We partnered with NLP a couple of years ago to help jump start the transformation of our aerospace operations. We produce very complex systems with numerous components and a challenging supply chain. NLP has been instrumental in establishing our highly effective materials replenishment system. In less than 2 years, we improved our on time delivery performance from 80% to 98%.”

“We engaged Next Level Partners (NLP) to assist us with patient flow in our Emergency Department. The first week-long event that NLP facilitated resulted in significant improvements in length-of-stay times, a much more productive staff, and higher quality outcomes. Our goal is to turn our 900 employees into great problem solvers and critical thinkers that improve processes daily. Hospitals have become fragmented as various departments have become so specialized. Working with NLP has resulted in greater teamwork and appreciation of all team members’ contributions to our health system outcomes. The result is better patient care and service for our community.”

“We’ve had you lead us through several Lean events at this time, and we have always found your team to be a pleasure to work with. We have used the new processes increase our output dramatically. This transactional event was a bit of a change for us, and coupled with a few busy weeks prior to the event we did not prepare as much as we could have, but the event led to some great ideas that we’re looking forward to implementing. Please pass my compliments on to your team, who as usual did a great job keeping us on track.”
