This client needed to rapidly reduce costs and propel growth within their commercial product lines. A three-week analysis revealed an organization fighting out-of-control business, manufacturing and IT processes that were resulting in production delays and angry customers. Kaufman Global developed a lean implementation plan that would aggressively address inventory, supply chain and productivity opportunities while enabling the desired production site capability.
The day after the analysis ended, the client requested we immediately begin implementation. Meaningful successes were achieved within the first week and included the decision of three valued-but-frustrated supervisory-level staff who had planned to resign deciding to stay.
