A three-part Lean programme was developed for 35 managers as part of an initiative to improve efficiencies and reduce waste costs. Many of the managers were new to Lean methodologies and others had previous experiences that hadn’t worked out well.
We set about with establishing a clear governance for all Lean projects that came out of the programme to ensure they achieved their full potential, within this we created buy-in at all levels within the organisation.
As part of the programme the managers would scope out and work on live projects, they would have to define and measure their projects and seek authorisation before the project could be implemented.
Without exception all of the projects were a major success and the organisation identified many opportunities to change processes in order to increase efficiencies, most importantly the organisation was able to identify over £250k of cost savings.
