Mark Greenhouse UK Lean Process Improvement Consultant
Mark Greenhouse Lean Process Improvement Consultant
For 25 years Mark has been involved with improvement of organisations be that through Productivity Improvement, Lean, Efficiency Improvement or Process Improvement programmes - all with the aim of leaving behind SUSTAINED improved performance.
During that time he has often had to deliver improvements whilst managing teams; he's managed departments and factories to keep delivering every day, whilst still improving.
This focus on improvement coupled with having to manage operational teams means he has learnt the lessons in
- which techniques actually work when it comes to improvement and in what order they should be used, to deliver
- how to make it easier for others to get involved (changing the language and making the techniques simple)
- how behaviours have to change if the process is changed
- and how to ensure improvements and changes are SUSTAINED.
These days he combines his role as a lean productivity improvement consultant with teaching. His teaching involves working with
- Leeds University Business School (LUBS) where he is an Associate Lecturer in the Management Division (Supply Chain and Operations Management) - Mark Greenhouse LUBS Profile
- Aston Business School where he is involved with delivery of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Programme. His focus is on Continuous Improvement Techniques with business owners.
- Cambridge Judge Business School where he has delivered insights to Productivity Improvement in Law Firms.
As well as the training that he delivers on Lean and Productivity, Process Improvement, Mark has written several articles on Lean Management and Operations Management.
This include the application of Lean improvement in Legal Firms; The application of Process Improvement in the Service sector and marketing teams. Details of the articles are contained in his Linkedin profile.
In 2011 he produced content on Lean Management for the Business Advantage Series published by Cambridge University Press. Business Advantage is the course for tomorrow's business leaders. Providing a unique syllabus that combines current business theory, business in practice and business skills - all presented using authentic, expert input - input that included the following leading institutions and organisations: the Cambridge Judge Business School, the Boston Consulting Group, Nokia, Dell, and Levantar - to name but a few.

Mark began his Lean journey way back in 1991, whilst studying for his Bachelors Degree in Manufacturing. A thesis on Manufacturing Management Systems as part of his Masters Degree uncovered these new, Lean Manufacturing ways of working from Japan.
He's also gained qualifications in Marketing, when he took the process improvement techniques he'd learnt from lean manufacturing into the marketing offices of FMCG and Financial, Insurance companies.
Mark is not afraid to take ideas and concepts across boundaries and test them, a trait which has led to him championing the use of operations based lean management techniques and principles in Law Firms since 2011.
These days Mark is comfortable taking lean and process improvement across a wide range of sectors (Manufacturing to Law) where the challenge, more than ever, is to get work completed faster. The first step is always helping staff to see how they could be more productive, by doing less and sustain the changes.
