D. J. Simmons is a Farmington, NM-headquartered oil and gas exploration company that also owns Twin Stars, Ltd — a natural gas compressor sales and service company. Both companies are recognized regional leaders in their fields.
John Byrom, D. J. Simmons President and CEO, retained Cornerstone in December 2006 to help his company’s oil and gas exploration division source and implement a performance management system as a next step in their efforts of obtaining Roadrunner Certification — the intermediate level of Malcolm Baldrige certification through Quality New Mexico. The company earned its Roadrunner designation in 2010. Like Cornerstone, John and his team believe that business process quality is an important indicator of long-term success and is worthy of investment.
As a start to that work, Cornerstone has supported John and his team with the refinement of their already well-developed strategic planning processes and plan. Cornerstone conducted a comprehensive survey of the company’s directors and key managers which served as input for the plan’s development and backdrop for the company’s 1.5 day strategic planning retreat which was facilitated by Cornerstone.
The work and retreat narrowed the company’s focus to those initiatives that matter most as the company defined “what matters most”. Using the survey and retreat’s findings, existing management accountability tools and with the addition of some refinements, strategic planning is sharper than it’s ever been and D. J. Simmons was poised to source and implement a performance management system that will help a great company and team become even more successful.
Subsequent assignments consisted of project management oversight on the implementation of major project maintenance system including documentation of business processes and selection of outside vendors and the implementation of a robust set of digital data dashboards.
