About The Founder, Allison,
and the WHY behind CII
My first taste of continuous improvement came with my summer internship in the Lean department of a railroad. I was hooked! I absolutely love that "before and after"!
That experience inspired me to earn my BS in Industrial Engineering and my MBA. I craved to know more so I became a licensed professional Industrial Engineer and a certified Six Sigma Black Belt (ASQ).
I am naturally inclined to always question how things are done and to always look for a better way of doing business. So naturally, I took on CI roles for the railroad, the federal government, the utilities and the energy industry.
Over the next decade, I became more and more frustrated. Every company basically had the same challenges. And every company desperately needs a continuous improvement program.
We were working on accounting, customer service, operations, engineering and other service-based improvement, but we weren't producing widgets and we weren't focused on manufacturing quality. We were tackling inefficiency and ineffectiveness in our work processes and saving millions of dollars. But there is almost no support for continuous improvement outside of manufacturing. We wanted an organization that truly understood and supported our unique needs.
There had to be a better way. So it became my mission to solve this problem.
Welcome, to Continuous Improvement International, the better way.

So, what's a CI project?
A continuous improvement project is a problem or opportunity with NO solution. It may be new a new, exciting opportunity to serve our customers or a broken, inefficient process. Either way, we're going to use a structured problem-solving approach to address these problems the right way.
- the way we process payments results in frequent errors on customers' bills
- the time to complete accounting monthly close process is excessive
- we just had an acquisition and need to realign our operational roles and responsibilities
- the company needs to standardize processes before we replace our outdated asset management system
