"The purpose of PVA’s involvement at Westwood was to obtain momentum as well as quick improvements and consistency in underground development by working with the managers on their critical activities.

Establishing KPI’s reinforced the focus on results, and the understanding of the inherent daily opportunities.  The implementation of daily meetings and reports, and the training and clarification of the roles of the supervisors and captains resulted in significant increases in performance. I would recommend PVA’s intervention".

"The experience with PVA was very enriching and educational. PVA’s strength is their great capacity for analysis and synthesis of the particular context of the site their team works in. Also, they were able to integrate and blend with our team, making it easier to facilitate a climate of mutual trust.

PVA has involved every level of employee in the realization of the improvement plans.

Undoubtedly, improvements in the process occurred in the cycle PVA had indicated".

"The PVA team that worked on the Westwood project has proven their ability to integrate very well with the members of Westwood's staff on-site. The training sessions with the managers were very interesting, and helped our supervisors to increase their numbers of hours of active supervision in a work shift as well as to better plan the work hours for their crews.

With PVA’s help, we have implemented a continuous improvement Steering Committee in order to eliminate different opportunities that had been identified by our employees, and involved the employees in the resolution of these opportunities.

Unfortunately, the current situation in the mining sector is that labor moves a lot and it was our case also. Many of our managers who had received training by PVA have left us and there was a minor impact on the gains that we managed to achieve. However, we know that through the tools developed…

However, we know that through the tools developed with the help of PVA, we can continue to improve.

The training of newly hired employees is planned, and we will continue to implement the tools that PVA has provided us with".
