Project highlights

Client challenge:
UC San Francisco‘s Capital Programs office is responsible for all school facility’s construction and improvements – a critical function that leverages current expenditures to maximize long-term value. Yet with demands increasing, the university sought to reduce stress and get more done with the department’s overburdened staff.

Our approach:
Haley & Aldrich leveraged its expertise in project management and Lean to help stakeholders deeply understand the department’s primary value, identify the bottlenecks, and develop innovative approaches to reduce wasted effort and assure continuous, long-term improvement.

Value delivered:

  • A healthier, people-centric workplace with an empowered staff that delivers more value and continually strives for operational excellence.
  • Major improvements in responsiveness and work accuracy were achieved.
