"Working with Texas Lean Partners has been a fantastic experience. In a very short period of time, are already experiencing significant improvements to all key production metrics. I would highly recommend Shannon Carver & TLP to anyone looking to improve their manufacturing processes."
"We view Texas Lean Partners as an extension of our team, not an outsider. With the help of our new partnership we all came to the realization that we needed to work on creating the environment that supports more trust, teamwork, respect, learning and openness. We believe that if this environment exists then success will come naturally and in this environment the Lean tools will be much more effective."
"Lean Partners understands how to lead; this is what sets them apart from other Lean experts. The internal skepticism about Lean that existed at the beginning of our journey has disappeared because Lean Partners inspires 'a-ha' moments and delivers sustainable results. The Tapemark team and I have a tremendous amount of respect for Lean Partners because of the value they have provided."
"Lean Partners take what sounds good in a presentation and makes it applicable for our specific needs. They make sure we will be able to sustain improvements to get the results we want. They do what they say they will do. They walk the talk."
"First and foremost, Lean Partners teaches. Rather than simply providing Industrial Louvers with an assortment of lean tools, Lean Partners provides various models and guidance in using them to create and sustain a lean culture. The opportunity to practice implementing what our company is learning in a safe environment through role playing makes all the difference."
"Because of Lean Partners, our gross margins are at record levels and the outlook is extremely strong."
Today’s business environment challenges leaders more than ever
- Earnings are pinched by inflating costs and downward pricing pressure
- Customers are demanding better quality, delivery, lead time, and service
- Competitors are finding ways to improve performance and lower cost
- Employees are wary of flavor of the month initiatives
You may be facing some or all of these challenges or, perhaps you feel like your company just needs to do better. Whatever the case, the need for business performance improvement is greater than ever…and its growing.
While the need for operational excellence is clear, the path is deceptively simple; establish the right direction, utilize effective tools, create the right mindsets, and you’re on your way to double digit improvement.
