We’re here to help your business achieve operational excellence through a variety of Lean tools. An excellent example is Standard Work, which reduces variation in each process used within your business model. These variations can be of any size and have usually developed slowly, reducing the consistency, safety, cost-effectiveness, sustainability and overall quality of the process in question. By standardising, you know that conformance has been applied across the board and each process is operating at optimal efficiency around the clock.
We help businesses in a range of sectors to identify areas of improvement. This is done by first creating a Process Map, which is a detailed picture of how a process flows, including:
In doing so, we can use this to help you identify wastes, the location of bottlenecks in your process, and areas that can be streamlined and enhanced.
The creation of a Process Map requires numerous considerations. We’ll work with you and your teams to find all forms of inconsistency and hindrance within your processes, log down all of these problems, and identify examples of waste. We then map an ideal state, which is the perfect process achieved in absence of all constraints, and then develop an action plan. The amended process is then actively monitored to ensure that it is fully optimised and sustainable.
By removing variation from each process, your business will ensure health and safety compliance and also minimise waste. Meanwhile, each process will be easier to measure in terms of time, quality and cost, plus the predicting of outputs becomes much smoother and more precise. This gives you greater control over not only how everything operates, but also how you can grow the business going forward.
We’re here to help you standardise your processes so that everything runs smoothly without exception. To find out more, get in touch on 01482 296451 or book a Standard Work & Line Balance workshop today.
Clarity Lean and Visual Management has had a very busy year and supported businesses across a wide range of industries. Cadogan Tate is a specialist removal company that transports high value artworks and property for auction houses and collectors.
We helped them by conducting sessions on Zoom with their teams from the UK, East Coast USA and West Coast USA. Working together for fifteen days spread over four weeks, we coached them in how to produce effective Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and created a set of fifteen, which were a combination of best practice from all of their teams across the UK and the USA.
The teams at Cadogan Tate loved our approach and had this to say about our service:
“Thank you all at Clarity – we have all thoroughly enjoyed working with you and would definitely use again.”
“Thanks Stuart, I have equally enjoyed working with you and Clarity. Phew what a good choice!”
“Just to say thank you and fantastic job on getting to this stage of pretty much almost complete, bar a few amendments from feedback and a recap over the 15 SOPs. Many, many thanks!”
