Are You Struggling to Balance Your Current Demand to Your Resources?

The last few months have seen difficult trading conditions for all business sectors and recent forecasts have shown that this will continue for some time into 2022 and beyond. Businesses have had to deal with broken supply chains, a lack of availability of suitable personnel and the continuing pandemic has resulted in increased absence and sickness. Additionally, increased pressure on remaining personnel has led to its own problems.

It is vitally important that during these times, the best use is made of all your resources, and it is sometimes very difficult to see a way forward, whilst dealing with the current trading conditions.

Here at Lean Business Solutions Ltd, we have extensive experience of working with businesses across all sectors, both SME and large organisations. Helping them to identify and improve inefficiencies within their processes. We then work with them to re-engineer their processes to maximise efficiencies together with coaching and mentoring their team to deliver a sustainable result.

One of the tools we utilise to both underpin performance and the culture change which is required for any Lean / Lean Sigma Deployment is Leader Standard Work. Working with your management team we both train, coach and mentor to transform the organisation into a “Lean Thinking” structure.

“Lean management is less about providing the right answers than asking the right questions and trying things or encouraging others to try things. John Shook.

We integrate your daily structures and routines into a standardised process to focus on the right behaviours and process controls to deliver your businesses strategic direction and goals. Go to our website and find out from our customers how our coaching and mentoring has benefited them:
