Focused Improvement

Bank Special Assets Management

Successful Special Asset management is key to your operation. It also can be a tremendous drain on resources. The more diverse your portfolio, the less likely your staff will have the needed business expertise to evaluate the ailing company.

Monitoring loans for red flags is just the beginning - investigating, coaching and mitigation efforts all take time and experience. When Workout resources are stressed they tend to write down or write off the loan to get it off the books. The increase in your reserves impacts your competitive advantage on more profitable loans. 

Kaizen Events

Sometimes, solving the problem yesterday was too late. When the challenge is specific, Bellwether Advantage offers both Kaizen and GE Workout Sessions to provide quick answers.

Training and Results. The Kaizen Event includes leadership briefing, team training on tools and techniques, project definition, direct practice solving real issues, presentation development and executive review. (5-6 days of in-depth training with hands on experience)

Self Guided Teams

Need more time and want to avoid the costs of long term engagements? Bellwether Advantage offers a Self Guided Team model using our template approach to lean six sigma. Your team does the leg work and are provided daily insights into their work.
