What is Practical Process Improvement ® (PPI)? It is a practical, results-focused, scaled-approach through the use of appropriate strategies and tactics tailored for the size of the firm and scope of the project. With the application and rollout of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technology and solutions, it is ever more critical to make certain your services and processes are optimized for your clients and customers.

PPI holds a firm belief in the principles, tools, and techniques of lean, six sigma and other process improvement methodologies.  Years of practical experience has shown many firms do not have the resources, human and financial, to fully use the complete lean or six sigma DMAIC or DMADV frameworks.  This led to development of Practical Process Improvement ®, a scaled, tailored approach. 

PPI was founded in 2006 and assists clients in healthcare, IT, manufacturing and service businesses to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and productivity of their processes and services by use of practical process improvement tools and methodologies

Scott Cornish, Founder and Principal Consultant, is now employed full-time for Cooper University Healthcare and is no longer accepting new clients.
