Here at ClarityVM we’re all about precise actions that lead to clear results. No matter how efficient you think your business currently is, you’re probably missing out on the opportunity to improve certain aspects of your operations. It’s a case of not being able to see the wood for the trees – when you’re based on the premises every day, small issues and obstacles are often missed entirely.
When a business books us for a free assessment, we discuss your mission, vision, setup, output and various other factors that combine to form the whole. Sometimes we can pinpoint areas of improvement right away, but it’s the more in-depth analysis during a site visit that really uncovers a company’s true potential.
Our job is to talk to business owners, team leaders and employees about individual processes, exploring what each one contributes to daily operations. Everyone always gives a confident response, as they know exactly why something such as a piece of equipment or a particular system is required. We then discover that there’s something holding the process back from achieving 100% efficiency. When we ask why, the answer is almost always the same: “We’ve always done it that way.”
There’s nothing to be ashamed of when this happens, as it’s very easy for it to occur even within large and long-established organisations. The key is to then be open to strategic change, which initially takes the form of a discussion about how processes and systems can be fine-tuned. We’ll decide how to remove hindrances entirely, no matter how large, small or seemingly insurmountable they may be.
Depending on the current arrangement at your workplace, the removal of stumbling blocks and bottlenecks can either be very fast or require a longer period of time. Whatever the case, it brings an enormous return on investment, as your premises will then be able to function as efficiently as possible.
The next step is to embed a culture of continuous improvement throughout your organisation. This takes a lot of focus, patience and attention to detail, as our consultants will explore the most effective ways of helping staff to adapt to the new philosophy. We achieve this through a variety of ways, including the integration of visual management products into key workspaces, bespoke staff training that’s tailored around your specific requirements and schedules, and the development of a long-term strategy that enables you to maintain the highest levels of operational excellence.
Over the years, our consultancy services and visual management products have helped businesses across multiple sectors to increase employee engagement by 48% and save six or even seven-figure sums.
It may sound too good to be true, yet it is completely possible to error-proof your business through visual management products and team coaching. When the physical tools and the ethos behind them are combined, it becomes impossible for employees to make mistakes and miscommunicate information.
This works just as effectively between departments as it does within individual teams, as Lean management encourages staff to share updates regularly and present them in a highly visual and jargon-free manner. There’s simply no room for error, ensuring peak performance on a long-term basis.
We’re a team of visual management and Lean management specialists who believe that every business should have the tools to improve, develop and grow. To discover how we can help you to be more efficient in what you do, get in touch on 01482 296451 or fill in our contact form.
