Implementing LEAN methods to improve productivity and efficiency

The concept of LEAN production was initially developed by Peter Drucker in the 1940’s. More recently, James Womack has provided insight, training and detailed plans for implementing Lean Concepts in every aspect of your business.

LEAN concepts allow you to examine your existing business and production processes, identify areas of waste, or Mutta, create a vision for an improved future state and then implement the future state. It is not uncommon to find up to 75% time savings, 50% floor space savings, and unlimited monetary savings by implementing LEAN concepts in businesses just like yours!

Let the professionals at Riedford Management help you find improvements to your business that allow you to improve the profitability of your current business while freeing resources to support growth.

Moving from a Multi-national to a truly Global business model

Many medium and large businesses have multi-national operations – a home office in the United States, a sales office in Hong Kong, and/or production facilities in China. Few companies leverage all of the potential value from these multi-national facilities.

Are all of the global facilities participating in decisions? Is all of the management talent present in these far flung operations being fully utilized throughout the enterprise? Are transportation and material purchasing benefits possible in one region being realized for other geographic locations?

If you see your organization in any of these questions then you need Riedford Management to help you move from a Multi-national to a truly global business operation.

General Management coaching for small enterprise

Most sole proprietor businesses are successful because of the deep talents and hard work of their owner / founders. Business has grown through the years because one or more key people in the company have made a lot of the right decisions and worked tirelessly to make the business work well.
