Business Assessments from More Effective Lean for Manufacturing & Healthcare Six Sigma from More Effective Facility Design and Expansion


With 100% repeat business and over $30 million
in cumulative project savings, our clients have some great stories to tell!

“Thank you for your contributions since 2006. We accomplished more than I could have asked for!

Our continual improvement of greater than 30 inventory turns, 20% cycle time reduction and increased capacity by 33% were significantly contributed by More Effective Consulting. 90% of our employees were trained in Lean principles and 1/3 were involved in Kaizen events. We now have an internal Lean Champion who was trained by MEC.

MEC also assisted in developing a simulation exercise that will be used for training VS in Lean Principals. I look forward to using More Effective Consulting expertise in years to come to help further develop our most valuable resource (our employees) and improve our overall operating effectiveness."

“Since 2005, Exeter Hospital (NH) has been transforming their Lean Healthcare culture with More Effective Consulting. One key example of the benefits is an inpatient kaizen where discharges before 11:00am doubled, before 1:00pm discharges nearly doubled, LOS reduced by 20%, all while admissions increased by nearly 10%. Exeter is now positioning themselves for other systematic and sustaining methods to encourage change, improve performance and lower costs. ”

“More Effective Consulting, and specifically Matt Morrissette, has been in partnership with us since 2005 and there is a definite improvement noticed in the manufacturing process.  Changeover times have been reduced by nearly 50% on multiple manufacturing lines.  Processes that we thought were already Lean were improved even further and production scrap levels have dropped to record lows.

MEC has impressed us with their objectivity and willingness to understand our process before trying to implement change.  Matt challenges us to create our own solutions while offering guidance using his breadth of industry knowledge.  I would recommend his expertise to any business."

More Effective Consulting certified 9 employees in Lean Healthcare, and as Green Belts. MEC also conducted Kaizen events in many areas of the hospital. Two years later, their employees conduct their own 5S kaizen events throughout the hospital, and as one employee stated “we need to do some kaizen here!”

"More Effective Consulting updated our shop and office layouts for 4 buildings and 300,000 sq ft. The work was done in a professional and timely manor and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again."
Manager Manufacturing Engineering

“More Effective Consulting certified 10 of our employees in Lean Healthcare, and as Green Belts. One Lean Healthcare Kaizen we conducted was in the Emergency Department where more than $12,000 was saved.  The most satisfying moment was during the event when critical managers decided to work as a team to drive existing and now future improvements.  I would recommend MEC for basic Lean Healthcare training and advanced transformations.”

Bronson Healthcare, Kalamazoo, MI


“Matt Morrissette worked with our plant to help us drive improvements in our material handling management systems, improve product yields, improve planning and scheduling tools, and implement an improvement process (Lean Manufacturing).

Matt brings with him not just great experience but also brings a high level of energy, great rapport with all levels of the organization, and a creative approach to solving problems. He uses fun and interactive tools to help people better understand the problem and the value of the solution. He is an absolute pleasure to work with – his energy is contagious!"

"I loved your lean simulated workshop.  It's terrific.  People love participative activities, the "learning by doing" approach; really gets them involved and comprehending the key concepts.  I wouldn’t change one thing about your workshop."
 Business Manager
 Carr Tool Company, Inc.


"The VT/NH HFMA chapter pioneered a joint venture with this group and found it to be a positive experience.  The speakers were engaging and professional. Using experiential and dynamic activities, including Lean ED, they introduced new concepts for creating efficiencies within healthcare organizations. Feedback from attendees was very positive."

"I thought it was great!  And I'll reinforce what I said.....the people got so "into" the exercise that they wanted to "solve" the problem rather than focus on the tools being demonstrated."

Director of Quality
Exeter Hospital


"It went well. We transferred the Vision Map information to the Value Stream Map format, so we actually had both. Six teams, so quite a bit of mapping was done…. 1,000 people, with electric and acoustic guitars, amps and strings."

“More Effective Consulting assisted the Medical Center in implementing new tools and techniques in performance improvement.  Their Vision Map product has been very useful in facilitating team collaboration and identifying wasted steps in work processes.”

“I’ve used your Lean E.D. simulation as a starting point to create my own customized simulation training workshop!  We ran the simulation once, then I gave them the lean training.  We ran the simulation two more times and each time they improved.  On the first run, it took them 52 minutes to complete 50 pages and on the third run they got it down to 20 minutes.  All in all, it went very well.  Lean E.D. was very helpful.”
