We typically get invited in by directors of successful and ambitious companies, but they have the honesty to recognise perhaps operations is a bottleneck to growth and so they are probably frustrated by quality issues both internally or worse at the customers, others are worried that perhaps, that productivity is having a negative impact on delivery of their product or service, Or it might be the case that they feel their teams are struggling to quantify operational issues and eliminate the root causes.
This may not be something you have a problem with, but if you do perhaps we should talk.

Process Improvement is a large and sometimes controversial topic with many complimentary methodologies. Our approach is to carefully listen to our clients and provide a blended solution that meets that expectation and culture, without taking up valuable time and resources on tools and topics that are not required immediately.
“Working with Ian proved to be both very pleasant and constructive. His advice based on rich experience proved very valuable. With Ian’s support we were able to take further steps in creating a foundation of various Lean methods and building a CI-culture in general. Highly recommended.”
Ian was a very effective lean champion who successfully led one of our plants from the start of the lean journey to the conversion of our factory floor to single piece flow and material flow and pull systems. During the conversion Ian showed the ability to effectively communicate and motivate team members from the factory floor up to the GM. Ian also demonstrated an exceptional 'knack' for getting team members on the shop floor to buy into the lean process and to take ownership of the ongoing success of the systems that were designed and implemented during Kaizen events.
Ian’s excellent interpersonal skills, experience and knowledge enabled him to quickly integrate into the company where he gained the trust and support of his colleagues at all levels. During this time Ian was a very effective facilitator of change running a high number of kaizans and events to assist the business in continuous improvement. I recommend Ian and would have no hesitation in working with him again, or recommending him for employment.
I worked with Ian at Cummins Power Generation in Kent. Ian is a highly experienced and knowledgible Lean & Continuous Improvement practitioner. During the time he was at Cummins, he accomplished more significant change and improvement, at all levels of the business, and in more areas of the business, than anyone. The company and staff also benefited from his exceptional inter-personal and team building skills. I highly recommend Ian, and hope to one day work with him again.
Ian and myself worked on a number of projects together. Ian clearly demonstrated an extensive technical and operational knowledge of manufacturing management and LEAN manufacturing processes and principles. I would strongly recommend Ian as a LEAN manufacturing consultant or business process consultant where he will deliver benefit and cost saving by eliminating MUDA- MURA- MURI!
