Lean Consulting Lean Consultancy

Lean Institute Consultancy. Preparing for sustainable success.

Many international groups have started a Lean Management program or are preparing to start.

Management, through the Lean Strategic Director and the Lean Project Manager, has key responsibility for the definition of the strategic lean standard and for its roll-out over many sites and countries. Companies with lean experience know that the methods of lean production to achieve world-class performance are simple to understand but difficult to organize and even more difficult to sustain.

Practical lean implementation expertise (shopfloor, “Gemba”) is among the most important factors to bring on-board before starting a lean initiative. The responsible lean organization and its management members must be qualified in how to implement lean as a sustainable success. Different sites speak different, heterogeneous “lean languages”. Hence, the standardized design of lean production systems is crucial for success!

Management must take the lead in being qualified in the key criteria for success and in using lean standards. Only then will it be able to show evidence that it is willing and well-prepared to start and lead the change towards lean excellence.

As Lean Institute (R), we offer lean and supply chan managemet consultancy services; this includes:

  • Roll-Out of lean programs for intenational subsidiaries, intrnational plants

Organized elimination of all types of waste is a key lever of lean. You do not become lean by simply reducing headcount. Waste elimination is an efficient method to implement a company’s vision to be a key player in the business. The elimination of waste in manufacturing and business processes has to be organized through a systems approach.

Our competencies include the different lean improvement tools (lean methods) and the structural elements of an integrated production system. Employees and teams (effective work groups) as the ‘operating system’ are the backbone for the lean production system. Here, we apply target-group specific consultancy and training.

Best practices from many lean implementations are available. And the result?

Significantly improved productivity and increased added value, which is sustainable.
