“All fourteen members of staff took part on the programme that completed in September 2019. Rather than a single improvement projects the team decided to run several smaller improvement projects. Between the several projects a total of £140k of savings and improvements were identified”
As a growing SME, ECO Surv planned to engage the whole workforce on the RKMS Lean programme, as they wanted to develop a lean culture in all aspects of the business. This was a planned strategy to compliment the Energy and Renewables sector that they serve. Fourteen team members took part across the following areas.
- The Senior Management Team & Directors
- Financial Management
- Design & Development Office
- Sales Team
- Operations Support
- Quality & H&S
As the company created sub teams to work on a range of improvement projects as they worked through the apprenticeship programme a range of improvement projects were developed including.
- Streamlining the Onboarding process
- Improving operational planning to maximise customer support & income
- Improving technology for customer support and increasing operational capacity
- Developing improved support data to improve customer interfaces
- Improving the design & development process
- Creating new processes for improved financial management and strategic decision making
Tangible benefits were recorded in excess of £100k across the range of projects which represented almost 15% of the financial turnover at the time.
Cashflow also improved significantly, allowing the company to re-invest for substantial growth as they bring new innovations to the marketplace.
Teamworking and transparency of processes have been enhanced to new levels.
