About Our Founder
Ann Thompson, founder of Operation Productivity and Certified Productive Environment Specialist™ of the Productive Environment Institute™, assists high achieving professionals and business owners overwhelmed by the demands of their careers and lives. Ann partners with her clients to implement streamlined process and systems to help them regain control of their time, space, and information to increase profit, productivity, and peace of mind. The ultimate goal is for clients to effectively accomplish their work AND enjoy their lives™. Ann collaborates with clients using proven methodologies to improve efficiencies resulting not only in tangible results like increased profits and productivity, but also a priceless sense of calm, peace of mind, reduced stress, and increased energy.
Ann has always had the gift of seeing a process and immediately identifying ways in which that process could be improved and completed more efficiently. Ann’s eye for process improvement led her to obtain an Industrial Engineering degree while working in a traditional corporate America setting for ten years as both a Business Process Improvement Engineer and Six Sigma Blackbelt. More recently, Ann has spent nearly twenty years as a consultant helping businesses become more efficient, streamlined, profitable, productive, and organized. Ann treats each client with dignity, respect, and without judgement. When Ann isn’t helping others achieve success, she can be found spending time with her husband of 23 years and their two amazing boys.
