“Standardization is the necessary foundation for improvement.” — Henry Ford
How many errors are caused by ‘human error’ which could be avoided. How much experience is ‘lost’ when staff leave a business. How much risk do we take when employing new staff?
Standard Work aims to pool the experience of the staff doing a process into developing the best ways of delivering the process.
Our customers will determine the ‘value-add’ of any process. Our staff will develop the best methods to deliver this value through process optimisation.
Standard Work captures the best and smartest ways to deliver our products and services.
Who should attend?
The programme is aimed at any personnel engaging in business process improvement.
