Are you looking for something that can help you to deliver the results from your business? Would you like your workforce to be highly participative and contributing more to your organisation’s success on all fronts?
As Operational Excellence Consultants, we analyse your processes in order for you to be more efficient and profitable. Our objective is to then help you implement these types of processes in a cost-effective way.
What is Operational Excellence
Operational Excellence is the ability to analyse operational processes in order to identify wasteful activity (thus reducing cost) and by identifying and maximizing value-adding activity (thus driving increased profitability and process efficiencies).
With over 1.4 million businesses within the UK private sector having employees it’s important that companies engage their staff to in order to keep maximising value-adding activity. The workforce participation is the KEY factor in making any Operational Excellence process successful.
By engaging with them, and working with them to improve their processes, improved results will have a significant impact on productivity and profitability.
Everyone within the business, at whatever level and in every function, should be focused on delivering the operation excellence fundamentals.
Why is it important?
According to Merchant Savy, the UK has achieved an average growth rate of SME’s by 31% since 2010. Therefore, in order for a business’s continued success and growth, implementing a good training and education program ensures your employees have the knowledge, tools and mindset to drive improvements.
This will enable sustainable, continuous improvement designed to give a competitive advantage over the competition in your industry sector.
Companies that develop these processes have an in-built capability that can fix problems/issues as soon as they arise.
What does it mean to you?
Operational Excellence can bring huge benefits to businesses. Key to its successful implementation and adoption is ensuring that the design and execution of the chosen strategy is of the highest standard.
The correct strategy along with the appropriate, well designed and professionally delivered training will produce the desired results from a productivity and profitability standpoint.
How long does it take to implement?
An operational excellence strategy is not an overnight process and takes a big commitment from the whole of the organisation both in the short and long term.
Implementation time depends on workforce size and what tools and techniques are to be used – in most cases however, positive results can be achieved almost immediately in some operational areas.
