MyVA Performance Improvement Project

Client: Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

Atlas Research worked with VA’s MyVA Performance Improvement (PI) Office to apply Lean and Six Sigma methodologies to processes that add value and are customer and Veteran-centric. We also supplied change management subject matter expertise to help establish a “Lean” mindset and culture of continuous improvement within VA. These efforts directly support the VA Secretary’s breakthrough priorities as VA strives to transform health care delivery and key business processes to improve the Veteran’s overall experience.

From strategic planning to full implementation and analysis of performance improvement initiatives, we partner with our clients to deploy tested methodologies and tailored technical assistance to support organizational excellence.

We facilitate strategic analysis and planning to identify priorities for targeted performance improvement and guide overarching organizational transformation. We help organizations achieve alignment with strategic mission and vision.

Performance Measurement and Evaluation

We use tested, systematic approaches to conduct process and program evaluations that define the current state, uncover key areas for change, and measure effectiveness of improvement initiatives. By developing strategies to capture and analyze performance metrics through dashboards and scorecards, we enable clients to measure internal performance and build a culture of continuous improvement.
