How Can He Do This?
He is laser focussed on one thing, TIME.
Time is the challenge every business and manager has. We never has enough time. Work is being chased up, suppliers called, excuses given to sales and customers, all because we are often short of time.
He has studied the interactions in Operations. He’s qualified to Masters level in Manufacturing Management and has held positions from Team Leader right through to Operations Director. He’s run factory and industrial sites, as well as Management Information and Marketing Teams and worked with clients on delivering Lean consulting and improvement in support functions across organisations.
He’s run shifts and sites, delivered Capex projects as a project manager on the sites he’s then run daily. He’s run planning teams and worked in industries where orders have to be delivered within 18 hours (fresh chilled products in the Supermarket), right through to engineering orders with lead times of months (Wind Turbines).
He’s worked in organisations building one unit a week (machine assembly), through to those making a few hundred a month (sub assembly, sub-contracting) finally ending up with those making thousands or hundreds of thousands a day, supplying supermarkets with lemonade and Quavers, Square Crisps.
Along the way he’s also interrogated customer databases, learnt how to apply Digital techniques to customer relationships and worked on improving marketing which delivered 3m new customers to a financial services organisation in just 2 years.
This vast experience means he understands how MRP & ERP systems can be made to work, how to schedule work optimally, it isn’t the same as planning. He’s trained staff, developed improvements in processes.
He’s studied the ways management, businesses and staff can build consensus and how this can be used to improve processes.
All of these are part of the Lean Consulting service we can offer from here in Yorkshire, across the UK.
