Why we are different

We understand that sustaining outstanding results & performance, can be only achieved through a culture of permanent learning and improvement with an endless  pursuit of perfection,  developing this culture requires a long term and holistic approach, where people play a fundamental role.

“The Toyota Way” Operational Assessment

We review  the established systems  and tools, interviewing with directive team, middle managers and front line associates. We also analyze  the evolution of the KPI across the last years,  we look for evidence of the 4Ps (Philosophy, Process, people, Problem solving) and how is aligned with the company´s  objectives.

We correlate the actual management system with the  behaviors generated, in order to define the current situation and assess the gaps against the ideal state, delivering a strategic roadmap, which should be deployed by the management team.

Systems Deployment Support

In a coaching scheme, systems are deployed by the managerial team, while being assessed and given feedback by the consulting team, but direct responsibility falls on the company’s managerial team responsible for the deployment of Lean. The consulting team will provide general guidance and the means to develop tools by the internal team.

Daily Management System

Daily Management System

This system must be leaded by top leadership, and is the foundation to sustain the improvement momentum to develop a true continuous and learning culture

Standard work system

Standard work system

This must be developed to achieve a repetitive and predictable way of work, the real value for standard work is to bring problems to surface and address causes of deviation

Key Indicators Driving  the Desired Behaviors

Key Indicators Driving the Desired Behaviors

A correct KPI deployment must be clear and simple, trough the vertical and horizontal layers of the organization, the way people get measured will drive their behavior. Good measures should be implemented in order to drive the desired behaviors

Leaders Coaching & Development

It`s essential to begin with leaders that clearly understand the vital role as coaches and facilitators, it`s of much importance to have personal development before being able to develop others, making leaders which live by the companies values, aligned to  operational excellence. The first leader development must be at a directive level since they will be the ones that create a culture within the organization by means of the systems and behaviors established.
