The Secrets to our success in Operational Excellence

  • We keep our improvement process simple – our philosophy is to do simple things exceptionally well. We believe manufacturing excellence comes from mastering a simple technique and applying it consistently. This enables improved understanding, easier implementation and a greater opportunity for success to get things right.
  • We combine methodologies to gain leverage – Reliability, Lean and change management are inextricably intertwined. Reliability is a pre-requisite for efficiency just as having the right mindset is necessary to enable a continuous improvement culture
  • Change is all about looking at behaviour in the workplace – Innovation comes from introducing new concepts and philosophies that lead to new ways of doing things. In order to introduce the manufacturing improvement process, it is essential that we work with cross-functional teams to challenge convention. We embed changes that are in line with your organisation and employees to promote a sustainable leadership ‘engine.’
  • We believe in Active Learning – Our consultants act as specialists, facilitators, mentors and coaches. Generally speaking, people in manufacturing are doers; they see something they don’t like, and they do something to change it. Improving productivity is about giving people the opportunity to design and implement new processes and put them into practice themselves.
  • International Leadership – We have successfully implemented the IMPACT Programme in countries across the world and therefore have good experience of delivering our skills in multiple languages.
