The term Lean can mean different things to different people depending on your knowledge of and exposure to the approach. Lean can seem overcomplicated and prescriptive, full of buzzwords and inaccessible to the lay person – Lean should be and is the antithesis to this.
Paul’s approach is one that focuses on need and is common sense and practical in application. Lean is about putting the customer front of mind and to promote flow in the process whether it’s the production of a good or the delivery of a service.
Lean is ultimately a mindset and way of thinking embedded in the DNA of your organisation by utlising a suite of tools. This “way of doing things” is the product of developing habits over a period of time that focus on servicing and consistently providing value from the customers point of view.
Paul works with your organisation to expose the waste in your process and to implement tools and strategies to reduce or eliminate these impediments. This is achieved through building the capability in your people by educating and coaching them in the use of the tools and supporting them through implementation to mastery and to create a culture based on inclusion, engagement and learning.
Whether its in the factory, the office or out in the field optimising your processes and eliminating waste by creating structures to see the problems and to improve on those delivers sustainable long-term benefits.
