Mattawan, MI Jan. 1, 2020 - In its December cover story, Top-Tier Interim OpEx Talent “Where and When” Needed, Manufacturing Technology Insights Magazine zeroes in on the factors that garnered MetaOps’ spot on the publication’s Top Ten list. The article outlines how MetaOps’ MetaExperts™ approach not only helps address the global talent shortage that undermines operational excellence, but also uses an extensive alignment process to ensure each MetaExpert is a perfect fit for the customer, regardless of the size or duration of the project.

Ron Crabtree, founder and CEO of MetaOps, says, “We are delighted to be recognized for our forty-seven-step process that begins with understanding what the customer is trying to solve, the nature of the challenge, and the difficulty level.”

According to Kim Crabtree, president of MetaOps,“We thrive on helping tangible goods firms solve their most difficult business problems by ‘plugging in’ to their team to get things done. We are grateful that Manufacturing Technology Insights Magazine acknowledges our value proposition.”

Specifically, operational experts must be invited to become MetaExperts with less than 5% of those identified ultimately qualifying for the distinction. Candidates undergo a 300+ point evaluation process and are judged on their skills, core values, character and thinking capabilities to assure they have what it takes to help organizations succeed.

Looking toward the future, MetaOps plans to make significant contributions that support the digital transformation of the workplace through the incorporation of Lean Six Sigma best practices. With remote work rapidly becoming the norm, MetaOps is rethinking its approach toward collaboration and investing in the ability to deliver leadership expertise virtually, hands-on, or in combination to solve some of the biggest business problems. The company foresees growth in international partnerships that will offer better geographic coverage for talent in more than 30 countries around the world.
