M2030 bee launches S A Partners Maturity Assessment

Enterprise Excellence Assessment

Assess your lean maturity using an S A Partners simple self-assessment: In partnership with M2030 bee.

For a long time, we’ve been at pains to explain that the real sustainable advantages from applying lean thinking isn’t related to what tools you use, or the myriad of acronyms that accompanies lean, they come a focus on aligning your purpose, processes and people.

A Lean Scorecard Maturity Assessment is one way to gain a better understanding of your business operations and to identify a roadmap for improvement. This approach can be as relevant for a specific team, as it can for a department, or a whole organisation.

The image below shows the areas of focus for the assessment i.e. Purposes, Process and People along with the improvement journey from a ‘Reactive’ state, through ‘Proactive’ to ‘Excellence’.

M2030 is a new online platform that makes it easy for you to investigate, prioritise and execute efficiency projects within manufacturing & distribution operations. M2030 bee’s constantly updating database of good practice helps you tackle those barriers that so often slow progress:

  • The time it takes to stay on top of good practice & technologies when you’ve got a plant to run
  • Engaging the right colleagues across the business
  • Making a solid business case for budget
  • Dealing with the numerous sales people all offering the best solutions to help you

“A significant challenge all businesses face is knowing where to place time and resource. However, m2030 bee goes a long way to minimising this issue, as the Return on Investment and complexity data gives us an informed, indicative picture of what we need to concentrate on. This enables us to feel confident in placing more resource in projects which look more successful – saving us time, resource and money.” Wayne Hodges, Engineering Manager, Freshtime Foods.
