Applied Lean Consulting
We take Lean principles derived from Manufacturing and apply them across all industry sectors:
LEAN is a universal concept!
Lean is a tools and management system that provides:
- What customers need
- When they need it
- In the quantity they need it
- In the right sequence
- Without defects
- At lowest possible cost
Remote working initiative – Zoom drop-in
The current business restrictions aren’t going to last forever and once the crisis passes there will be significant opportunities for all businesses that plan ahead.
However, given the current concerns with holding face to face meetings, ALC is pleased to announce an innovative service using the Zoom video conferencing facility; a free of charge, no-obligation, 15 minute consultation of your business.
Discuss your Lead Time, OTIF (on time, in full) rate of fulfilment, Work in Progress, Stock turn and quality metrics (customer complaints and non-conformance check failures).
We’ll discuss with you the barriers to growth – to link back to customer requirements and what your customer is willing to pay for when they enlist your services.
Identify and prioritise strategic priorities for the growth of your business, particularly once we emerge from the current crisis.
See the Latest News section in the MK Chamber of Commerce.

How Can We Help You ?
To discuss how our team can help your business achieve true results…
How can you tell that your company needs Lean… ?
Managers spend most of their time firefighting: fixing problems and reacting to crises
Employees can’t see the link between their daily tasks and the organisation’s strategic goals
Work practices vary across individuals and groups
Delays or quality deficiencies are hidden and easily missed
Widespread frustration within the company at how long tasks take
Feedback from customers shows poor and variable levels of service
There is a lack of customer focus and no clear idea of what customers are looking for
Employees feel stressed, with high rates of sickness and absenteeism
‘Witch hunts’, finger pointing and a blame culture are endemic. Staff aren’t encouraged to speak up about impending problems
