About the author
No other management consultant has an approach quite like Jeff Pallister's. Traditionally, management consultants take weeks to evaluate their clients business; then they design new processes and hand over recommendations to management. It is weeks or months before a company sees tangible results. And since all the "answers" come from outside the client's company, employees have to be sold on each idea before they will put energy into implementing it. Jeff got impatient with that approach and developed a method that has staff generating fresh ideas in a few days. He teaches that the key to rapid process improvement is to get employees to like owners and approach problems with creativity and enthusiasm. On his approach, employers see improvements right away. He has helped over 300 companies using this method - including nearly 100 companies that sought him for for quality management and ISO services. Jeff is certified by the Institute of Management Consultants and the National Quality Institute, and has helped hundreds of companies since 1974. He was educated at Columbia University Graduate School of Business, New York; University of Calgary; Simon Fraser University; and The Banff School of Advanced Management.
