Bonita Matushewski, Chief Executive Officer of LTS Consulting, and a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, is an accomplished executive leader and senior consultant with over a decade of professional experience. She holds a degree in public administration and political studies, and a project management designation. While leading organizations to success, she has been recognized by winning multiple Green Ribbon Awards in quality improvement.
Bonita had an early career as a senior policy analyst with the Saskatchewan provincial government. During her work writing policy and procedure documents, she noticed there was a lack of interaction with frontline staff on whom these polices would impact. Bonita began to seek a way to allow staff to become more empowered and engaged.
Since then, Bonita has proven herself as an entrepreneur and a leader in staff engagement, quality improvement, and in business transformations across Canada. She strives to help individuals gain a voice within their organizational systems. She has planned, managed, and monitored the entire life cycle of projects, keeping every one of them on time and within budget, on contracts that ranged in size from the low five figures up to seven figures. As a business co-founder and principal, she has presided over the growth of LTS Consulting Inc., which began as a small, regional firm, and became a national company with annual seven figure revenues and a large public and private sector client base.
As a leader, Bonita has helped shape significant capacity building projects in quality improvement in Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and PEI. She has not only trained hundreds of people in Lean methods, but has also brought about fundamental change in the efficiency and effectiveness with which organizations perform.
