Why Most Lean
Transformations Fail to
A primary reason for a lean
transformation failure is lack of
effective training. It's not an
"add water and stir"
business process. You can't just decide one day to become lean and think it will happen overnight. You need to determine what constraints are imped-ing your ability to increase speed, improve quality, and eliminate non-value-added activities. And, then you need to develop and implement
lean concepts and tools for identifying and eliminating their root causes.
Why Most Lean
Training Fail to

achieve that, your lean

-Maps and flowcharts help make work visible. Increased visibility improves communication and understanding, and provides a common frame of reference for those involved with
improving business and work process.
Value Stream Mapping and Gap

CD - Performance
T-Module-Financial numbers may tell us who's winning the war, but it takes a motivational measurement system to win all the battles along the way. Remember, "without data you're just another opinion."
CD - Sales & Operations Planning
How to improve the integration of sales forecasts with
day-to-day schedules to improve product quality and on time delivery.
Kaizen Six Sigma
If your business team can handle only one strategic initiative at a time, then let it be the implementation of a “quick-hitting”
continuous improvement program. There just isn’t any other more important program in our pursuit of profits.
CD - Supply Chain
Material handling and storage are two of business’s high cost, non-value added activities. The elimination of the stock room, as it is known today, should be a
critical success target of all
businesses. It’s time to realize that there is much more to supply chain
manufacturing than simply placing purchase orders with the lowest price bidder.
CD - Lean
If your company needs to increase speed, improve quality while reducing non-value added costs this training module has the road map. Many of the manufacturing concepts, principles and techniques presented are applicable to all industries.
Quality System Toolbox-Provides
an interactive ISO 9001 checklist and quality
manual and procedures to jump-start or re-ignite a company's quality
manufacturing initiative. Provides a
quality manufacturing roadmap to optimize prior
quality efforts and maintain a focus
on improving quality.
