Inefficiencies within your company do not announce themselves. Poor processes and ineffective practices do not declare their intention to disrupt your business and cost you money, but it happens within most companies every day.
Inefficiencies are often invisible and intangible, which is what makes them so dangerous to your business. Slowdowns, customer complaints, delays, and errors impact your company’s reputation and ultimately its bottom line. In the case of products and services, these breakdowns cost you time, money, and sometimes client relationships. And in extreme cases, they impact life-and-death decisions.
The good news is that when you know where to look for problems, it becomes much easier to identify the slowdowns in your operation. When you recognize the warning signs and the symptoms of a broken process, you’re well on your way to fixing it.
We teach lean and continuous improvement concepts based on waste mitigation and reducing the impact of process waste. We review the elements of a waste walk; as far as, what to look for, examples, potential causes, and potential opportunities for improvement. We also take it one step further by giving you tips and tools to document and measure the findings in order to quantify not only the impact of the waste but to also quantify and show the impact of the improvements once they are made.
Our goal is to help you see the invisible and identify the hard-to-see problems that are undermining your efforts. Because as good as you are today, we can help you be better tomorrow.
