Under Dale’s leadership, organizations have experienced unprecedented transformations. Dale connects with and understands the team members and quickly identifies the gaps between an organization’s strategy and its execution. Because of his hands-on, roll-up-the-sleeves approach and quick immersion into the culture, he is comfortable working with organizations of any level of maturity (from dysfunctional to high performing). Also, Dale is an expert in process improvement (Lean Six Sigma, TQM, etc.), and he is able to transfer process improvement knowledge and ownership into the organization.
