How effective is your operation?

When you’re immersed in an operation of any kind, it is difficult to give it a truly objective assessment. Sometimes an outside, experienced, and structured view is the best way to get a clear look at your organization.

Audit

Inspect your organization’s processes and procedures to drive the results you need.

The purpose of an audit is focused on compliance. An audit measures the current reality, but it then compares it against a specific standard.

  • Find pre-defined problems and illuminate gaps that then must be corrected.

  • Audit processes for compliance against structured processes such as standard work instructions (SWI), checklists, standard operating procedures (SOP) or company policies.

  • Learn how to use audit results in a non-punitive manner to motivate your teams, close the gaps, and drive real results.

Assessment

Illuminate the current reality of your organization then compare it with your ideal state.

The purpose of an assessment is to get a snapshot of the current reality of your organization – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

  • Uncover specific gaps and receive recommendations.

  • Use as a getting-started tool, as part of annual planning processes, or as a check-up along your lean journey.

  • Attain both qualitative and quantitative data, covering 13 wide-ranging categories – from material and information flow to problem-solving and employee engagement. A quantitative score helps you measure progress year-over-year, while qualitative feedback includes specific details, information on broad trends and issues as well as suggestions on how you can close the gap to your desired state.
