When you are working inside a business, it's often difficult to clearly visualise the direction in which you wish to move. The ability to see this direction, and relate your activities back to organisational goals, is exactly what sets apart great companies, and ensures their continued success. At KFS, we collaborate with your leadership team to define, prioritize and plan how to achieve your company-wide, business unit and individual goals.
This includes planning, roadmap development and coaching at all levels in the business, using proven methods of Balanced Scorecard in conjunction with Hoshin Kanri.
Lean is by far the most powerful business management system that the world has ever seen. When Lean principles and thinking permeate every aspect of an organization, incredible levels of sustained performance are achieved. No other system gives an organization or operation such a competitive advantage.
Our years of experience can help you embark on your Lean journey by coaching and guiding your through the critical aspects of Lean such as genchi genbutsu, standard work, one piece flow, jidoka, visual management, daily management system, mura/muda/muri, and employee development.
It's a well known saying that you only ever as strong as your weakest link. That link is often referred too as the constraint in your business, the single item which is limiting you from achieving ever increasing performance levels.
In KFS we have built up a lot of experience in applying the teachings of Eli Goldratt and the body of knowledge, known as the Theory of Constraints (TOC). By applying both the thinking processes in conjunction with the focusing steps, we can identify a path to help you understand and resolve problems, and ultimately reach your goals
Building a culture of Continuous Improvement is the key ingredient in the recipe of breakthrough performance. The ultimate goal is to have continuous improvement being practiced habitually, by all employees. This includes (but is not limited too) leaders standard work, improvement idea generation, rapid improvement events (Kaizen), business process improvement, agile methods, and competency building.
Whoever says they have never had a problem to resolve is not being completely honest. It’s common for businesses to experience issues with product quality, process changes, or even just scaling their operations. Recurring problems cost businesses money, use up resources, and reduce efficiency. These issues negatively impact customer perception, employee engagement and shareholder value. It is therefore essential to address and resolve these issues in the most expedient way, using the most appropriate tools.
A value proposition is a statement that answers the ‘why’ someone should do business with you. It should convince a potential customer why your service or product will be of more value to them than similar offerings from your competition. You know why your company is great, but do your potential customers know what sets your brand apart?
A good value proposition can give you an advantage over your competitors and is often what your prospects use to evaluate you.
Sustainable continuous improvement is achieved by creating a positive organisational environment where every individual understands the end-to-end organisational processes within which they operate, as well as the value of their individual contribution to those processes. Our Continuous Improvement Maturity Assessment assesses your organization based on a number of predetermined criteria (based upon Lean principles) and provides a useful litmus test of an organisation’s current level of maturity.
Imagine same or better functionality at a reduced cost. Now that really equals value. Value add, value engineering (VAVE) is a technique which breaks down a product, service or process into its constituent cost elements, and identifies those which can be be eliminated, substituted or modified, to bring greater value to the customer.
At KFS we can take you through a structured process in a workshop environment to strip out all those unwanted or non-value add costs from your products, services and processes.
