How to make your business leaner and fitter in order to survive and prosper, even during difficult periods!
The list of companies which have started on the Lean Journey reads like the Who’s Who of the industry - companies like Hillier’s, Farplants, Wyevale, Westland Horticulture, Bents Garden Centre, Barton Grange Group, etc. Some of these companies have now been working with us for eight years and have run over five Lean Workshops with us making some very significant savings!
A typical Lean Workshop will focus in on your key business processes e.g. dispatch, potting, warehousing, restaurant, etc. and working with your staff will identify ways of saving time. The impact is to reduce staff time spent on non-value-added-process and increase the amount of value-add.
The average savings to retailers and growers that have implemented lean has been £50,000 per annum.
Businesses that have implemented lean have found many benefits:
• Reduction of costs and huge savings
• Improvement in despatch and propagation efficiencies
• Release of time allowing greater focus on customers
• Reduction of lead-times and improved productivity
• Increase in staff confidence to enable them to make their own improvements.
Funding is available for Lean Workshops for both Retailers and Growers – in some instances we have managed to fund these workshops 100%!
