It is not enough to have all the skills. You will need a Lean Road Map to apply those skills correctly.
We have seen so many places with right skills and a wrong application. Lean Road Map starts with looking at your organisation’s all processes and systems including customer base, supplier base, accounts, operations etc. After one to two weeks of working with your people your Current State Value Stream Maps are created for you and from those maps, we together decide how the Future State of the business should look like. This will give us the opportunity to create the Lean Road Map which shows the actions for making the Future State a reality. These actions will be creating Value Stream Maps for main product or services and identifying areas for Kaizens, Flow creation and pull systems.
In short Lean Road Map steps are;
One of our chief consultants will come and create an overall Current State Map for your business with you.
Future State Map will be created for your business with you to identify first focus areas.
We will create Current and Future Value Stream Maps in identified areas and make a Lean Road Map for all improvement activities (Kaizens, 5S, SMED, Pull Systems, TPM etc.)
This will show you the way to apply your skills on right areas.
If you want us to be implementing the Lean Road Map created. We can do that too.
