We Work To Understand Your Needs

This approach allows for the building of an infrastructure within the organization as we transfer knowledge and set a solid foundation for years of sustainability.
These engaging and strategic methods ensure proper execution of projects, from “Rapid Execution” Kaizen Events, to medium size organizational and large enterprise wide Lean projects resulting in 10% -30% reduction of operating inefficiencies while improving market share, increasing capacity and delivering customer satisfaction on products and services.
Depending on the size, complexity and scope of the engagement, our team usually partners with organizations for 2, 3 or 6 months.
We take on many roles when conducting engagements. These can be:
Having our team train the organization and then mentor them through successful project completion.
After leadership has identified challenges and barriers to the organization. Let our Lean Revisions team of experts lead the way and eliminate operational issues while engaging stakeholders and the workforce as needed for support (5%-10%).
Conduct a blended approach, where chosen current and future leaders within the organization are % dedicated to work hand in hand as we prioritize and execute improvements. This allows for your team to have dedicated Belts that are training the Lean tools, transferring knowledge and skills. With this partnership, your infrastructure will be solid and ready to continue implementing positive change after we roll off.
Tell Us Your Challenges And Together We Will Tackle Them.
