|Genba Kanri Training
Our approach is geared to Clients’ needs and means - we prefer not offer set-piece, one-size-fits-all 'products' - but we are able to support people at all levels in the organisation to achieve their long-term business goals.

These are qualitative outlines of training programmes: they may include a number of interventions, involving presentations, supported practical activity, ‘homework’ and later review. Timing, duration etc. depend on your needs, capabilities and resources.
|Our Values and Approach We recognise that our motives and approach may not suit everyone - this datasheet will help you to determine whether or not we can work together.
|Our Training Mode recognises that there are no short cuts to effecting sustained behavioural change – we work on concepts, tools and systems, as they apply in your organisation.
|The Comprehensive Programme Summary illustrates a process for a company-wide programme, including many aspects of the approaches listed below.
|Foundations for Continuous Improvement - establishing the pre-requisite understanding and alignment for a company-wide CI programme.
|Workplace Organisation (5C) - optimising the content and configuration of the working environment in support of effective process management.
|Just in Time Manufacturing - imparting the disciplines of pull, flow, and tact to the process; exposing and reducing waste, irregularity and difficulty. Cellular Manufacturing; One-Piece-Flow; Mixed Production; Cost Down - are all popular themes for productivity!
Total Productive Maintenance
- getting the most from equipment through increased reliability, reduced cycle times, reduced maintenance time, extended life, and greater added-value.
|Total Quality Control - imparting the tools and techniques of problem solving and introducing a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating variation and problems.
|Service Process Improvement - defining very clearly what is needed in terms of Quality Cost and Delivery terms, and optimising the supply process - where information is the ‘product’. For office / admin processes.
|Quick Changeover - minimising the time taken for a machine or process to switch from one activity to another, enabling more frequent changes and inventory reduction.
|Standard Operations - standardising working methods, imparting confidence in the reliability and dependability of the process to achieve QCD targets, taking away waste and uncertainty.
- measuring, evaluating and developing the overall capability of suppliers.
|Workshop Management – a basic yet holistic approach to Supervisor development through classroom training and ‘hand on’ practical activity in the workplace
|First Time Quality – a Process and Results approach to setting ‘what’ standards for products and services, then establishing methods and process parameters to assure the ‘how’
|Genba Kanri – the prime foci of genba kanri: the role of the Supervisor as business manager of his/her section; Diagnosis as a driver of PDCA; QCDSPM dimensions for improvement.
|Six Sigma - a statistics-driven approach to QCD improvement, now embracing wider humanistic aspects of World Class practice
|Discrete courses in support of an existing programme can also be delivered, tuned/themed to your organisation’s requirements. They are suitable for O - Operators; S - Supervisors; M - Managers
|Visual Management: visual control of things; visibility of information
|Problem Solving Tools & Techniques: an appreciation
Genba Kanri Diagnosis:
benchmarking against the world-class workplace; improvement planning
for Genba Kanri / World Class Manufacturing / TPM / your theme
|Workplace Organisation: some theory, much application of 5Cs
|Lean Manufacturing: JIT-themed Workshops, process & results oriented.
|JIT Principles: simulation to convey 3 main points
|TPM Introduction: 25% ‘big picture’ explanation; 60% hands-on activity; 15% in-house programme planning.
standardising material, environmental, equipment process influences
|Materials Management: applying the 4 principles of stock control. Includes kanban simulation and installation.
|SMED: the rationale; tools and techniques; practical activity
|Standard Operations: imparting consistency to methods at minimum effort
the theory – applied through working together in a ‘safe’ environment.
|Workshop Management: a hands-on residential course illustrating most aspects of shop-floor management.
|FTQ Workshop: eliminating the waste and frustration of rejects/ rework through FTQ mechanisms and systems.
|An Introduction to Six Sigma: a one-day seminar exploring the opportunities offered by this approach to continues improvement.
|Team Leadership: a residential event examining the theory of - and practicing - leadership skills
|Risk Assessment and Easy Working: understanding, identifying, and avoiding RSI -associated risks in genba. (click here for more)
