Adapting TPM to a Major Water Utility Environment

This utility provider in the UK serves 1.4 million homes and businesses. The companies assets include 26,000 KM of water mains, 30,000 KM of sewers and 838 sewage treatment works.

The organisation identified an opportunity to address the reliability and productivity of its assets through a TPM programme. Two sites were selected for a pilot study as they had the highest reactive costs and the biggest issues in relation to reliability. Both sites had significant high value capital intense physical assets.

Together, with our customer we developed a 10 step journey to launchtheir Asset Optimisation programme. The change in terminology away from TPM was deliberate and was made to reflect the language of thecompany and to aid engagement.

Improving Asset Reliability in a Bottling Plant

Our customer recognised that in order to fulfil an increase in sales of one of their main product lines to retail customers they needed to improve productivity.

Together, S A Partners reviewed options with the team on site and agreed that the next phase of their improvement journey would be a TPM programme.

This case study highlights the use of Overall Equipment Effectiveness to measure productivity and subsequent productivity improvements which was used t unlock the potential of the team and ensure that this drove engagement and ownership in both TPM and continuous improvement – Today People Matter.

This would ensure change was seen as a new way of life and not just a project based approach.

SHINGO Systems Design Virtual Workshop @ Viatris

Developing & designing the right Business Systems will support you deliver the organizational results you need.

About this Event

A successful organization is usually made up of complex systems that can be divided into layers of subsystems, each containing the necessary tools to enable the successful outcome of the system. An example of this would be the Continuous Improvement System which pulls together all of the tools & techniques used by an organisation or the HR System which guides human resource activity.

The Shingo Model Insights tell us that:

  • Ideal results require ideal behaviours
  • Purpose & systems drive behaviours
  • Principles inform ideal behaviours

For this reason Systems Thinking is fundamental to the success of Enterprise Excellence and this interactive workshop will provide you with the skills to recognise, define and establish the ‘right’ systems within your own organization.

This virtual training workshop builds upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop, and focuses on the Systems and Tools diamonds in the Shingo Model™. It begins by explaining that all work in an organization is the outcome of a system.

Systems must be designed to create a specific end objective; otherwise, they evolve on their own. Systems drive the behavior of people, and variation in behavior leads to variation in results. Organizational excellence requires well designed systems to drive ideal behaviors that are required to produce sustainable results.

In this workshop, you will:

  • DISCOVER three types of essential systems.
  • EXPLORE five required communication tools for each system.
  • LEARN how to create and use system maps.
  • UNDERSTAND system standard work and how it drives improvement.

For further information, please do email events@sapartners.com

Who should attend?

Senior leaders and Continuous Improvement professionals from enterprises, big or small, from any sector, wanting to understand the essential ingredients needed to create a sustainable business Improvement culture.

Feeling Proud – S A Partners achieves Investors In People Gold Standard

We are delighted to announce that S A Partners has been awarded the Investors in People Gold standard.

This prestigious award has been bestowed to recognize that S A Partners has achieved exceptional standards in leading, inspiring and empowering it’s team.

We often use the term ‘Cobblers Children’ to remind ourselves we are a leading training and consultancy company that supports organisations globally to improve employee engagement and culture change.

Ensuring we live and breathe the levels of excellence we push our clients to attain has been a particular passion for our Managing Director – Simon Grogan:

“Over the last two years we have deployed a competency based learning and development programme; introduced coaching to improve our people develop; refreshed our reward and recognition process; upped the frequency of team interactions and increased the focus on leading metrics.  These along with other initiatives introduced by our team have brought us together and created a really exciting place to work.”

On a strategic level focusing on team-based projects and targets has alleviated internal competitiveness and a focus on lagging metrics, allowing the company to focus on what matters – future growth, engagement and empowerment.  S A Partners encourages all employees to own their own learning and development, and provides every team member time each month for self-directed personal development.

S A Partners is an approved partner of the Cardiff University Lean Competency System (LCS©), the SHINGO Institute© and Blanchard Corporation©. We support organisations create exceptional leaders and drive culture change by embracing ideal behaviours such as ‘Lead with Humility’ and ‘Respect for Others’. By applying these principles to our own organization we have been able to make significant improvements to engagement and empowerment.

Thank you to Ken Snyder, Executive Director, Shingo Institute for acknowledging our success:

“Congratulations to SA Partners on being awarded the Investors in People Gold award. At the Shingo Institute, we applaud the investment in the development of people in all organizations. Specifically we appreciate the investments made by SA Partners in their outstanding team members. This demonstrates that not only does SA Partners teach the Shingo Model, but also practice what they teach. The Shingo Institute is very proud to have SA Partners as an affiliate partner.”

Simon Elias the Director of the Lean Competency System also commented:

“Congratulations to SA Partners on this excellent achievement. It is fitting that an organisation whose lean business model has a strong focus on the need for an empowered and engaged workforce for sustainable culture change should also demonstrate its own commitment to teamwork and people development”.

As one of the newest Partners to join the company, Garry Corbet (Head of Ireland Consulting) commented:

“This is an incredible place to work, we get the opportunity to make a real impact on our clients. Our team is constantly looking to learn, develop and share their knowledge and we are not afraid to hold each other to account.  There is respect, strong leadership and most importantly trust.”

The IIP Framework assesses companies in three key areas and against 9 principles (see Diagram). Companies are assessed through a rigorous combination of surveys and interviews.  Organisations that meet the world recognized standard, are believed to reflect the very best in people management.

IIP_model

We are delighted that we have been able to achieve this new standard which reflects the work of everyone in the organization to create a positive, empowering and exciting place to work.  This has been a challenging year for both us and our clients, but it has allowed us to reflect on our purpose which is to create a sustainable thought leading continuous improvement consultancy that has a positive impact on both our customers and our team.

Guest Speaker: Ken Snyder, Executive Director, Shingo Institute

Ken Snyder is the executive director of the Shingo Institute. Mr. Snyder has served as a member of the Shingo Executive Advisory Board since 2009, as a Shingo Examiner since 2010, and as Shingo advisory board chairman since 2013. He became executive director in 2015. Mr. Snyder developed an interest in Japanese business practices while living in Japan during the time he was a student. His interest led him to major in Japanese history and then to pursue an MBA for the purpose of working with a Japanese business. Inspired by the work of Professors Mike Yoshino and William Ouchi, Mr. Snyder wrote his master’s thesis on “Applying Japanese Business Practices in American Companies.” Mr. Snyder earned an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1980 with an emphasis in international business.

Immediately after graduation, Mr. Snyder joined a Japanese electronics manufacturing company, Susumu Kogyo K.K., and helped lead the establishment of its U.S. affiliate company. As plant manager, and later president of that company, he led the company through the implementation of TQC, QC Circles, and later, JIT and kanban initiatives. After ten+ years with the Japanese company, Mr. Snyder led the startup of Progressive Impressions International (PII) in Bloomington, Illinois. There he created a “Lean accounting” system before the term even existed, and he led the growth of PII from pre-revenue to over $25 million in annual revenues. Before joining the Huntsman School, Mr. Snyder was president of Marketing Communication Inc., an operating division of Taylor Corporation. After 30 years in industry, Mr. Snyder joined the faculty of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business in 2008.

Webinar: Aligning Learning & Development to Organisational Strategy

We often see significant misalignment between learning and development activity and the real needs of a business. During a survey of a large organisation employees stated that less than 20% of the learning and development activity they had been involved with in the last twelve months was directly related to the work that they do. This is an astounding waste of effort and in effect acts as a disengagement process rather than an engagement process within the organisation.

In this webinar John Quirke and Professor Keivan Zokaei will discuss the design of an effective leaning and development system that is truly aligned to the strategic needs of a business and supports the desired culture within and organisation. In particular in these challenging times, where knowledge islands are a very real risk, how can we effectively capture critical knowledge and ensure that it can be transferred effectively and in the shortest time when the need arises.

SHINGO Systems Design Virtual Workshop – USA

Developing & designing the right Business Systems will support you deliver the organizational results you need.

About this Event

A successful organization is usually made up of complex systems that can be divided into layers of subsystems, each containing the necessary tools to enable the successful outcome of the system. An example of this would be the Continuous Improvement System which pulls together all of the tools & techniques used by an organisation or the HR System which guides human resource activity.

The Shingo Model Insights tell us that:

  • Ideal results require ideal behaviours
  • Purpose & systems drive behaviours
  • Principles inform ideal behaviours

For this reason Systems Thinking is fundamental to the success of Enterprise Excellence and this interactive workshop will provide you with the skills to recognise, define and establish the ‘right’ systems within your own organization.

This virtual training workshop builds upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop, and focuses on the Systems and Tools diamonds in the Shingo Model™. It begins by explaining that all work in an organization is the outcome of a system.

Systems must be designed to create a specific end objective; otherwise, they evolve on their own. Systems drive the behavior of people, and variation in behavior leads to variation in results. Organizational excellence requires well designed systems to drive ideal behaviors that are required to produce sustainable results.

In this workshop, you will:

  • DISCOVER three types of essential systems.
  • EXPLORE five required communication tools for each system.
  • LEARN how to create and use system maps.
  • UNDERSTAND system standard work and how it drives improvement.

Moving from Operational to Enterprise Excellence

Why Enterprise Excellence not Operational Excellence?

At S A Partners, we believe that Lean and the philosophy of continuous improvement can and should be applied to all parts of the business, not just operations or manufacturing. In the same way, we also believe the approach is equally applicable to service and transactional processes.

Operational Excellence vs Enterprise Excellence

The phrase “Operational Excellence” through its wording assumes that the continuous improvement approach is just “an operations thing” or “only applicable to manufacturing” which is just not true and we are passionate about changing this thinking.

Comparatively, Enterprise Excellence assumes that every organisation can and should be excellent and be able to deliver sustainable business results. It also assumes that every single part of the organisation plays a critical part in driving that excellence.

By embracing this thinking, an organisation extends performance efficiencies and effectiveness to their whole value stream, increasing their ability to deliver ideal customer results as well as grow the business in a sustainable way. Understanding how Lean thinking can be applied to all core and supporting processes is key to delivering competitive advantage, for instance, sales, HR & L&D, finance, procurement etc. Equally, the approach and philosophy is something that is generating increasingly impressive results in business service companies such as financial services, retail, and online services.

This thinking is also reflected in the  world renowned Shingo Model for Enterprise Excellence, which expects organsiations to have applied the thinking and model to all parts of the organisation and is increasingly seeing more service sector companies recognized with the prize: https://shingo.org/shingo-model/

So why aren’t more organisations doing this?

The cultural stigma behind Lean as just Lean Manufacturing is strong and there is still the perception that Lean cannot be applied within service-based processes. This however is a cultural perception and should be challenged.

operational Excellence graphic showing table

If you go back to the core principles of Lean, the primary focus is driving value to the customer (whether internal or external) and then creating flow and pull to drive optimal value in the most efficient way.

Although it can be more difficult see, touch and feel the processes and key wastes in a service environment, they still exist and can have just as much impact on the performance of the organisation and value creation for the customer. Arguably even more so in a service businesses that thrive on excellence in the customer experience. The principles remain the same – its merely the application of the approach that needs to be adjusted to suit the service environment.

But does it work in practice?

There are many case studies of service organisations that have delivered step changes in performance through embracing an organizational wide approach to Enterprise Excellence.

One of the best-case studies around this topic is the Commonwealth Bank which became the first financial services organisation to win a Shingo Prize. They succeeded in not only driving Lean processes but by creating a Lean system and culture.

Looking to get started?

If you are looking to get started on your Enterprise Excellence journey, you may like to take a look at the recent Webinar recording with Carne Group, one of the leading Asset Management Services business based out of Dublin who have been on the journey for less than 12 months and have already seeing significant improvements.

If you are in the service sector and think that you could benefit from a more effective approach, then please do contact our service sector team on info@sapartners.com to arrange an initial consultation, or drop Megan James a message and she will give you a call.

Webinar: SHINGO: Deploying Ideal Behaviours – Part III

Join us for Part III of our webinar series on Deploying Ideal Behaviours. Part III will focus on how you put in place the right systems to measure and monitor engagement. Without this, behaviours can revert back to ‘the way they were’. You can catch up on Parts I and II by visiting our website https://sapartners.com/category/resources/

The Shingo Enterprise Excellence model focuses on the identification of Ideal behaviours that will enable your organisation to achieve sustainable ‘Ideal’ results. These behaviours must be supported by key systems within the business. But what does this really mean? How do we identify Ideal behaviours? Who identifies them? How do the Shingo Principles help in identifying Ideal behaviours? Do we need a behaviour for every principle? What if our behaviours have been far from the ideal in the past or even now?
