Any Manufacturing or Services organization faces the current economic situation as a challenge to survive.
Our vision and many decades of experience allow for us to bring the participants to a high level of comprehension of the Lean processes. Many books have been written in the topic, nevertheless there are basic details that only can be transmitted "live” by means of the necessary Motivation and the fundamental concepts of Leadership that are indispensable to have success in the implementation. The weakness or lack of these has produced countless failures.
The Facilitator – Instructor has more than 20 years implementing these strategies in more than 200 companies in the whole world. The wholeness of the content of this Certification program has been testified by thousands of participants who after the Certification Workshop, they go back to their plants, ready to detect, to propose, and to implement strategies that allow them to show, in most cases profits in the same day they start.
The process is so systematical that the participants, receiving the total support on the part of their Top Management, will be able to generate valuable improvements in their processes with the ability to generate a total return on the investment in a few days, and not less than 5 times in less than one year. If the company has provided all the required support to the participants, the process has been documented, and not recover twice to five times the investment in less than one year, we simply return them their money. We are proud to inform that in more than 20 years, we have never seen this case. What we have seen in exceptional cases, are returns of more than a Hundred times the investment in less than one year.
