Business Improvement Programme
IMPACT Programme™ is a business improvement programme that can be applied to the whole of your organisation or to a single manufacturing plant.
Every IMPACT Programme™ is unique. Its strength comes from engaging managers at a strategic level and focusing their attention on areas critical to their operation. Our Change Management Consultancy safeguards improvements and ensures a company’s self-sufficiency to continue them.
Cost and Risk
By creating processes that are both reliable and repeatable, safety improves and unexpected events reduce. These gains are leveraged and costs and risks are reduced significantly.
Productivity and Quality
Our IMPACT Programme™ teaches how to, first of all, see and secondly, eliminate waste from the organisation. The resulting creation of operational processes that are simple, standardised and reliable guarantees quality product produced at the right cost on-time for your customers.
As part of the IMPACT Programme™, multifunctional teams are engaged in the improvement process and take ownership of the transformation. Teams are trained and coached on how to maintain and continue to improve on the standards. Gains are locked-in by the new ways of working and continuous improvement culture and margin, therefore, improves in a sustainable way.
