Have you heard about lean manufacturing success stories and wished you could reap the same rewards for your transactional processes or service business? Well, The Rendement Group exists to do just that! The fact is that the same lean thinking for manufacturing can be applied to business processes with measurable results!
How might you ask? Let’s break down a business. Only two things flow: material and information. Successful manufacturing lean typically focuses on the flow of materials (components, parts, product). Utilizing these same lean principles while focusing on the flow of information, The Rendement Group will improve your overall customer experience, whether it be reduced lead times, improved quality, or increased customer satisfaction.
Lean Process Improvement
Lean as a process improvement tool is not new, however, application of it to business processes is not as common. Many organizations will need to embrace lean practices to remain competitive in this ever changing world. Often I hear companies say “but I don’t know where to start”. With over 35 combined years of experience, the Rendement Group can assist you with that seemingly daunting task.
We will take a methodical approach to process improvement, typically addressing one of the following:
- Your #1 customer complaint
- An inconsistent process
- A process that takes too long
- A non scalable process.
We can lead you through the improvement process with results typically by the end of the week (with proper prework). Some of those results can be cutting the time for the monthly financial close by 50%, increasing internal office capacity by over 30% by looking at the detail of the work and flow, reducing lead times by more than 25%.
The lean tool box comes with many tools: 6 sigma, DMAIC methodology, flow, pull, value, waste, SMED, and 5S to name a few. What is key is using the right tool(s) for the scope of work, and that’s where experience becomes important.
