Processes & Productivity Improvement
Productivity, effectiveness & efficiency are important to all industries & have impact on profitability & cash flow.
Do you aware most organizations have following situation?
- Carry out unnecessary activities & non-value added activities
- Waste due to unnecessary inventory; exceeded production, defective rate and reworks, etc.
- Long lead time & late delivery due to wait & pend

- Everybody works hard but things are just not working together
You might hear about 5S, Lean, Six Sigma, Process Reengineering, Process Mapping and so on regarding how these could help.
Indeed these are only tools. Basically all are about careful scientific study to identify the situation & cause followed by appropriate solution. However, willingness and awareness for improvement is the base.
May be you did send your staff to training courses but lack of result achieved or unable to implement. This is common because lacks experience in tools application & program implementation or lack of experienced facilitator. This is also why many organizations have a consultant for this type of program
