ellydelorijn.com: Improvement Manager with a focus on people

Growth and development are vital for every healthy organisation. Very often a small change is sufficient, but sometimes a more radical improvement is needed, for example to make operations more efficient, professional and pleasant, improve quality or reduce costs. Improving the operating processes and collaborations within organisations in a very short time is what I do as an Improvement Manager. With the professional help of ellydelorijn.com the change you desire will be achieved faster, more smoothly and in a way that is embraced by the entire organisation.

Every change revolves around improvement

My goal is improvement with every change. But real improvement will only be attained if the changes are implemented with respect at every level and, as a result, are accepted by everyone within the organisation. To achieve this a healthy living, learning and working climate, shared aspirations and responsibilities, horizontal and vertical linkage and a good balance between the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ approaches are, in my view, essential. Personal leadership is also extremely important in every improvement process. Personal leadership means that every person is the ‘manager’ of his or her own life and career, that everyone recognises and accepts their own professional boundaries and by so doing takes responsibility for their own actions.

An organisation with long-term value

As a strategic leader and improvement manager my mission is to make your organisation’s long-term value and vision visible in a sustainable way. With an anthropological eye I will look at your organisational culture and select my interventions. Throughout the entire improvement trajectory I constantly tune the content and process to each other, tactically and directionally, and always with your people and their learning and development process in mind. It is indeed your people who keep your organisation running. I improve the functioning and interaction of individuals and teams on both the behavioural and process-management fronts using a combination of my Lean Black Belt certificate skills, my coaching skills and my expertise in learning and development.
