Assessment & Specific Roadmap (click)»
Assessment & Specific Roadmap:This is usually the first step even for those companies that have begun a lean transformation. It consists of three basic parts and is normally completed for manufacturing & the major support/administrative areas: a gap assessment for all applicable lean elements, a value stream or process map for a typical product, a cultural assessment (how prepared is management for lean). This leads to your plan and how lean consulting would best be utilized. This usually takes 3-5 days depending on the size of the company.
Deliverable: A company specific roadmap (flow chart) outlining and prioritizing the most important events required to reduce waste

Transformation Re-alignment (click)»
Transformation Re-alignment: After many years of working with organizations that are well into their continuous improvement journey, but are not reaching the success they had hoped for, we have done some groundbreaking work & learned some of the reasons for the slow pace and have had success in identifying the causes and re-aligning these enterprises. Many of the reasons can be traced to leadership's style in coaching employees as well as understanding some of the basics an organization needs in place to have the right psychology within the work force. We can help to identify where these gaps are and how they can be closed. Further we can identify where specific management & shop floor tools specific for high variation companies could be beneficial.
