Strategy Development for 2021 and Beyond

The events of 2020 have changed the trajectory of what 2021 will look like and it is a far different landscape to what we imagined twelve months ago.

How you approach this year and what actions you take will define your success in this critical period.

Over the past 20 years Simply Lean have helped many companies develop a culture of Continuous Improvement, but in times of high pressure it is easy for things to slip, particularly in the crisis we have all experienced.

You need to break out of this state to meet the challenges of 2021 and beyond and Lean Thinking will undoubtedly help you and Simply Lean are here to help you achieve this.

You will need to focus on many fronts:

  • Are you meeting your Quality standards to maintain and build your customer base?
  • Can you meet your delivery dates consistently or do you have backorders?
  • How productive are your teams?
  • How do you make or do more with your current staffing levels
  • Are you reducing costs to achieve greater profits?
  • Are your staff coping with the changes that Covid has brought about?
  • Are you capitalizing on your team’s creativity and innovative thinking?

We have already seen with many of our clients how a relentless focus on Continuous Improvement has helped them through 2020 and are now well prepared for 2021.

So please contact us to discuss how we can best assist you in meeting your goals and objectives for 2021 and secure your future.

GTech Bellmor

From the start of our Lean journey, we have worked closely with senior management and consultants from Simply Lean.

Originally, our decision to use Simply Lean as our Lean mentors was based on a raft of positive references from other businesses, and the perceived benefit of working with a local business. Simply Lean have demonstrated they are a world class authority on Lean, and we are convinced our early successes along the journey have been driven by the professional support and guidance they have offered our people, from day 1.

If continuous improvement and Lean concepts are on your business horizon, and they should be, talk to Simply Lean as early as possible – you’ll not regret it.

Nelson Forests Limited

I engaged the services of Simply Lean Business Solutions to support the introduction of Lean Manufacturing Principles to Kaituna Sawmill, a Nelson Forests owned and operated company. Their on-going site visits and guidance of our ‘Lean Journey’ has resulted in rapid adoption of Lean Principles across business functions. Key to the success of our Lean Journey is the ability of Simply Lean Business Solutions to tune into the individual needs of our company and apply new and refresher training at the appropriate times.
