Advisory

How can we help?

Need sound advice from experienced strategic and implementation advisors? 

LEAN COACHING

For regular coaching support to your teams, from the frontline to C-Level Executives.

LEAN ASSESSMENT

With your organisation’s purpose in mind, let us assist with an evaluation of the current state and opportunities.

Our Advisors

Collectively, our Advisors have a deep understanding of the work involved in transforming the organisation. We do this by guiding learners to solve problems that matter, deliver better value to the customers and develop the internal capability throughout the ranks to initiate and sustain change.

Guided by the Lean Transformation Framework we partner with our clients through a co-learning approach, to drive change but also to preserve the learning to survive beyond our support.

WHAT PROBLEM ARE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE?

We need systems to help visualise our problems so that we can respond to them in real-time and drive value for our customers, employees and shareholders. Without problem transparency, it is difficult to know where to focus our improvements and apply our problems solving cycles. 

WHAT PROBLEM ARE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE?

We are clear on what must change and what our customers expect, but how do we adjust our own behaviours and habits and create a culture of customer-focused problem solving? And how do we make the improvements last?

WHAT PROBLEM ARE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE?

What is the work we need to do before engaging our Digital Strategy? We want to take the next steps but we have many wastes we don’t want to bake in with new systems and technology. How can we get everyone, everyday to think Lean and improve their processes and systems?
