Catalyst has particularly strong expertise in Value Stream Mapping (VSM) in both manufacturing and transactional environments.
Kaizen Events (or ‘Rapid Improvement Events’) are intensive 3-5 day collaborative workshops which address specific improvement opportunities with a focused multi-disciplinary and multi-level team.
When you need external help in leading a strategically important improvement project in your organisation from ‘soup to nuts’, Catalyst has the technical, leadership and change management skills required to step in and enable results.
Process Optimisation follows Continuous Improvement training or a Process Healthcheck, organisations identify the need to optimise and streamline their processes.
Lean cultures grow from Lean Management, and so establishing systems of management with the associated disciplines, routines and behaviours enable leaders and managers to set the tone, role model ideal behaviours and ensure the principles of Lean thinking become embedded in the ways of working.
If you have a particularly thorny issue to solve, perhaps because of technical, political or financial challenges, then Catalyst can provide the specialist resource you need to address this effectively.
