Accelerating Business Improvement by Creating a Lean Culture
Over the last 20 years, our leading research, consultancy and training within our lean culture practice, has concluded that the emphasis for our clients has moved away from questions like, ‘Where do I start?’ and ‘How do I get trained in the tools?’ to a different set of questions, such as ‘Why am I not achieving as much as I had hoped for?’ and ‘How do I stop things stalling?’
Our experience is that many organisations have thoughtfully adopted the more visible parts of Lean such as the training and application of diagnostic and implementation ‘tools and techniques’ but have done so in isolation of other key areas; in particular, the people element of Lean has often been missed or, at best, underplayed.
Our Lean Culture Offering has been specifically developed to help organisations understand how to correct this and to start developing a Lean Culture using a range of specifically developed personal and organisational assessment and implementation approaches.
S A Partners Lean Culture offering accelerates business improvement by delivering increased accountability, more creativity, better risk management, enhanced problem solving and reduced fire fighting, enabling organisations to take business improvement to the next level.
Our approach for leadership teams at all levels consists of three one day workshops over four to six months with one-to-one intensive skills development between each workshop.

Building the capability
Making the transition
We are also able to transfer skills and to develop your own internal experts to deliver this capability across your organisation. This consists of three intensive two day workshops and three one-to-one skills development sessions between each workshop.
“I feel a “sixth sense” has been given to me. I realise that I don’t have to have insight into the specifics of a situation to contribute to resolution. Also…I feel much more in control of my daily interactions with my co-workers”
