Any manufacturing or service company where efficiency is a critical factor in success. Participants can be operators, supervisors and/or managers. We will work with you to select a team of up to three participants from your company. Each participant will deliver a worthwhile project in their area of the business.
Adopting lean tools and techniques is a new approach to business that is being embraced by an increasing number of manufacturing and services companies both nationally and around the world. Why? Because it is delivering serious competitive advantage to companies who engage in the process. Previous participants on our programmes are using lean to deliver measureable improvements across a wide range of business outcomes, including improved cash flow, productivity, waste reduction, lead times, employee engagement, quality and customer service.
