Aerospace & Defence

Supporting global Aerospace & Defence organisations deliver organisational change

Our approach combines Lean thinking with a focus on developing the Management Systems and behaviours that support sustainable continuous improvement. This highly regulated sector needs to continually challenge both productivity and performance boundaries – embracing innovation and digital platforms to improve operational efficiency both internally and within supply chains.  

We have supported our customers with the drive to minimise operational risk and build in sustainable systems for quality, safety & reliability – reducing the focus on compliance and building a culture of quality and performance excellence that goes beyond compliance and sustains profitable growth. 


Our approach to operational excellence is built around the Enterprise Excellence Model (Link to the Model insights book). The approach will support you to improve customer satisfaction, drive down cost whilst investing in your workforce to continually improve your business for the future.
