  • Chad has been a joy to work with from Day 1. He is able to accommodate my volatile schedule and still produce quality work, at an affordable price, on time, every time. In addition to his dependability, his Christian work ethic brings a unique quality to the final product that I just don’t find with all of our service providers. I would highly recommend him!

  • I have hired Chad several times for consulting and training around strategy development and implementation. He is high energy, very personable, and very knowledgable. He was very effective and efficient at implementing a process to develop, execute and track results of our Strategic Sourcing Strategies. I would be happy to be a reference for him.

  • Working with Chad has always been a very enjoyable experience. He consistently delivered quality work products and ensured customer expectations were met. He continuously sought out new and innovative ways to develop training material and delivery of course instruction to adult learners and was instrumental in setting up the beginning platform of a training and development initiative for a Fortune 100 Company.

  • Chad is probably the most knowledgeable and practical practitioner of Continuous improvements I know today. When I first met Chad some years ago, he had a great background in Lean concepts. He then took on the 6 Sigma Tools and within a year, he became a true expert in both Lean and 6 Sigma. His character, willingness to learn and teach and true passion for continuous improvement makes him a great asset in any organization.

    Ed Fernandes
    Reliability Manager at Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.
  • I worked with Chad for a few years in a post-merger situation. I was always impressed with Chad’s knowledge level and his ability to adapt his skills to a new environment. What really shone through was his passion for change and how to educate people through those changes. I have met with Chad a couple of times in his latest role, and that passion still exists today. He is an individual who continually learns and imparts that knowledge well. Whatever field of continuous improvement you need help with, give him a call.

  • “There are life changing events, LSS was one of those not only for my professional career, but for my development and improvement as human being. Through LSS coaching and resources, I was exposed to a wholistic training where I learned about tools that contribute to meet product development and delivery timelines without compromising quality or going over budget. Also through this well-thought and well-structure program, I have received the gift of thought process and decision making improvement on different aspects of my personal life.​”

  • “I’m blown away at the attention to detail and how rapidly CI solutions is able to drill down and problem solve. They have given us valuable insight to our complex processes. With their help we were able to make changes that lead to massive gains!”

    Nick Campbell
    Owner and President, Niktec
  • “Before Chad and CI Solutions started working with us, we had multiple good visions among the Memorial leadership team, but not much alignment for our collective vision. We are grateful for Chad facilitating us in a Holy Spirit filled manner that allowed our leadership team to come together, identify how we are unique as a church and develop our mission statement, and then help us determine what few breakthrough objectives we should be focused on. What a powerful and positive experience for us!”
