DELIVERING PEACE OF MIND
What we will do
We will develop your capability and introduce solutions and measurements that are easy to apply. The new way of doing will fit into your current system and will operate with minimal interference and changes, while reducing your overall workload significantly.
We will unshackle your team from conventional thinking and doing towards a holistic and horizontally coordinated way of doing work. As unforeseen events/shortages/blockages stop impacting production variation reduces and the true bottleneck will become visible. This makes short term planning effective and it will be possible to devolve responsibility to where work is being done while improving oversight. You will find that employee engagement, innovation and safety performance will improve simultaneously. You are now on your way to achieve "Superflow in a spirit of calmness" as explained in the three bottle experiment.
The impact of achieving "Superflow in a spirit of calmness".
Our Three Phased Approach
Phase 1: The first phase is a 3-day strategic assessment process. We would like you to engage us for three days to do a strategic assessment. We want to visit your operations and do interviews with your direct reports and some next-level managers. We will then develop an offer you cannot refuse.
Phase 2: If you agree to proceed, we will start by building the capability and designing your specific solution. It will inform an overall flow model, a buffer management system and management approach.
Phase 3: We will be your experienced guides while implementing the plan. We will find new ways to do real work and achieve the results that you want. We will refine the model, the measurements and the desired behaviours and will start to see indicators of the results within 1-2 months. You will have us as experienced guides all the way and we hope to build a long-lasting trust relationship.
The initial aim is to experience at least 20% improvement, materializing in a significant shift in net profit.
In essence, we want to engage you on a journey of an operational culture transformation. It will transform your organization’s results, the way of work, the engagement of employees and the bottom line. The improvements will put you on a successful journey and enable your social license to operate in a way you never imagined possible.
