There is no better system for developing continuous improvement culture in your organisation than the concepts embodied in Lean supply chain thinking. Too often a company has a quality policy and documentation that meets compliance requirements to gain ISO accreditation, but fails to effect lasting change on the behaviour of the people in the organisation. The Lean approach has been proven over many years by many organisations. Lean includes key management concepts of the 7 wastes, 5S, visual management, measurement, structured problem solving techniques like Value Stream Mapping with cultural change activities of employee involvement, team meetings and Rapid Improvement Projects. It is this powerful combination of culture and technique that makes Lean so effective. Logistics Help consultants can deliver a Lean logistics implementation as part of your corporate program or a development program for your supervisors and managers to drive their action on continuous improvement. Contact us to discuss how a Lean supply chain initiative at your organisation could transform the way you work and make you a leader in your industry.
