Continuous efficiency improvement – management of change
We work with you to understand your business and aspirations for the future. Through close collaboration we will develop an improvement plan to achieve your vision. An essential component is the communication plan with all staff which helps ensure change management is delivered. Key tools may include policy deployment and process mapping.
Continuous efficiency improvement – quality, programme and cost project interventions
Construction project interventions seek to challenge the way a project is delivered to create delivery stability by planning ahead to mitigate potential delays through effective collaboration. Resulting process improvements create value for your clients by removing waste and failures in the process, creating capacity to drive value for you.
Collaborative planning is a tool to help the whole team to jointly understand the project risks and opportunities. This understanding enables the team to re-programme the works, so that the project has reduced waste, better flow, a clearly defined scope and sequence, and best practice ideas from the team. This means that the project will be safer and have greater cost and time predictability. Regular planning and review of the collaborative plan will deliver the project with lower cost and improved quality.
Collaborative operations assessed the internal operations of the business with a view to mapping and understanding current systems and their limitations. Through collaboration with all the interested parties in the business, the systems and processes are challenged and waste activates removed. This will ensure the systems and processes are aligned to the business strategies and markets within which the business is operating.
Independent lean assessments
This is a structured approach to establish the degree of continuous efficiency improvement with a business. The organisation is assessed by an independent lean practitioner (similar to a systems audit) looking for supporting evidence from the business. The framework collaboratively creates an improvement plan and allows benchmark between business streams or the supply chain or against other organisations.
