- TIME to actually apply the techniques and experience them,
- TIME to receive coaching and feedback,

Did you teach your child how to swim front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, diving, lifesaving all in one go?
Why do this with improvement training?
WHY attend a 5 day Training course (at a discounted rate obviously), at a hotel somewhere away from your workplace to learn everything BEFORE you apply it?
Levantar believe that a Lean or Productivity Improvement Training course should be tailored to the specific needs of your business; using the lean manufacturing techniques which are most suited to your business.
We believe that you should learn some new things try them out, get coaching, get feedback - then try the next skill, the next technique.
Did you teach your kids the Cruyff turn before you gave them their first football? Why try and do the equivalent with Improvement training?

Lean Training Course - designed to fit in with your workload
A Lean & Productivity Improvement course on which you are taught, observed during implementation and given feedback.
Not a course where the focus is 5 consecutive days, away from the workplace to gain a certificate.
A typical improvement training course typically consists of a number of training sessions; split across several weeks.
After each improvement training module individuals are given 121 support in the workplace.
This helps them to get insights into how to implement the lean manufacturing tools into their daily lives.
It also gives them insights into how to bring others on board and to gain their buy-in. In other words how to SUSTAIN the change.
WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER IS THE AIM!
We know that any improvement work taught has to go hand in hand with your daily operations. In reality you and your staff have to improve and deliver all at the same time.
Our services are based on our considerable operations management experience we have. All of our consultants have run operational teams as senior managers through to Operations Director level.
Maybe you have a single department project in mind, or perhaps you have a thought that you need training across a series of departments or sites that you want to improve, including the support areas - Finance, Product Development, HR.
Whatever you need we can flex our Productivity Improvement courses to suit the outcomes you are looking for.
I understood Lean more in the first 5 minutes of training than I've learnt from 4 previous courses!!

Lean Manufacturing Productivity - How Many Frustrations Do You Have?
It's really simple to find out.
Ask your staff what stops them doing their job, stops them getting on with it?
Ask them what frustrates them about doing the job and listen to their replies.
Listen to their replies, don't dismiss.
While you're at it, why not estimate how many times each of them happen each week and how much time you lose sorting them out.
A Manufacturing Productivity Example
A stores person takes a list of components and walks around the stores collecting component parts for an assembly. (The list came from the company) The parts are in part number order, not the order they are stored in or are used in.
The employee tick them off as they go, placing them in bags with the component id on, the bags go in a big box.
They are delivered to the engineer who must first, sort all the bags into the right order, checking that they have all the right parts and numbers of parts.
How much wasted time is in there? How much work is duplicated?
Why can't the stores person deliver the parts in the right order to the engineer and help them focus on just building? Thereby increasing their productivity?
There are simple solutions to this and the many other frustrations you have.
