We do things differently
We consider ourselves has coaches
Here is why…
The way we coach
We like to work in a bottom-up philosophy to ensure success in our mandate.
We share our knowledge to all levels of your organization.
Not all businesses are the same.
We have a versatile team of coaches ready to help you reach your goals.
Our interventions are customized to every client’s needs.
We will work with your team to foster a continuous improvement culture.
We provide interactive and hands-on tools as needed.
Our team always stay up-to-date with latest trends and innovations.
Your team works with us and learns
If we have to spend time in a room, kaizen team will be working. Production employees need to be active to be at their best.
If theory needs to be transfered to team members, it will always be brief and supported by easy to understand documentation.
We rely on facts to understand. As we dig with the team on available data, they will learn that field observations are essentials to make sure we fully understand and take best corrective measures (action plan).
Team members will often require help from other employees and managers to collect all the information. Even people outside of the workshop will be involved.
Every time we hold a kaizen event, there is a communication plan for both the team members and employees of the company.
