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

planning and scheduling tools, and implement
an improvement process (Lean Manufacturing).

"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
"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
"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.”
