Welcome to L. E. Dupuy & Associates, Inc., Defining significant business processes and managing them to attain targeted results.

In 1985 it became apparent to the founder, Lynn Dupuy, that smaller businesses needed the same level of expertise and experience as larger firms in the area of change management but that need was not being effectively addressed by most consulting firms at the time. Having a history with large companies such as GE, GM, Ford, (then)US Steel and others, he began working with smaller firms to bring the broad experience he attained to bear on the smaller company issues. Today that focus continues and incorporates many methodologies and techniques that have been modified to fit the needs of the smaller company,  

Our mission

 Competition is not getting any easier. Margins are declining. Companies are facing new competitors with local production or production operations overseas.  To make matters even more challenging, these circumstances may be occurring in markets that are declining in size.   Most leaders realize that what worked in the past will not lead them where they want to go in the future. There is no middle ground. Companies that merely continue what has been successful in the past are likely to lose ground at an alarming rate. Companies must adjust practices and processes in anticipation of the future and the changing markets in order to compete. Customers will not stand still either. Their expectations are escalating as well.  L. E. Dupuy & Associates has developed and employs methodologies that facilitate a disciplined approach to determining what changes need to be made and how to accomplish them. Some of the methodologies are:  

Example methodologies employed:

  • Project Management 
  • Process Mapping 
  • Value Stream Mapping 
  • Charting\Data Analysis 
  • ISO 9000
  • ISO 14000
  • ISO 18000 
  • Cultural Assessment 
  • System Assessment 
  • Change Management 
  • Process Measurement and Goal Setting 
  • Continuous Improvement Process 
  • Training 
  • Lean Enterprise 
  • Six Sigma

Very few people come to work with the intention of creating problems. Frequently the problems that arise are a result of miscommunication, misunderstanding and in some cases human error. A system must be managed to insure the accuracy of the repetitive things but allow empowerment when the unexpected arises.
