As lean thinking continues to spread to every country in the world, leaders are also adapting the tools and principles beyond manufacturing, to logistics and distribution, services, retail, healthcare, construction, maintenance, and even government departments and services. Indeed, lean consciousness and methods are only beginning to take root among senior managers and leaders in all sectors today as a means of increasing efficiency, driving down costs and ensuring the repeatability of processes within high quality standards.

Huda Consulting has qualified staff with extensive experience in designing and implementing a structured Lean Management programme for your company incorporating all facets of your business from reception to despatch. The Huda Consulting toolkit as depicted above ensures that the methodology of Lean Management is entrenched within the company creating ownership of the system by all employees long after our involvement.

Lean Management Toolkit


Our “journey towards global competitiveness” starts with ensuring that all stakeholders within the company buy-in to the process and methodology of Lean Management. To this effect, management, staff and union awareness sessions are held to create transparency and set targets and expectations. A strategy session is then undertaken with the management team to determine key focus areas, create a project plan and prioritise the implementation of the programme. Depending on the size of the company and the need, Huda Consulting uses different tools to assess the current state of the company and creates a benchmark for measuring improvement throughout the process. Tools include Value-stream Mapping, SWOT Analyses and company-wide assessments. Where the company is large in structure, model areas are identified to prove concepts and these are then replicated in similar areas/departments of the company. For small to medium companies,  Huda Consulting would normally train the entire staff on the various tools and techniques of Lean Management including 5S Workplace Organisation, Waste Removal, Standardised Work, Visual Management, etc. For larger companies, a formal Lean Management structure is set up to create champions and coordinators of the process throughout the company. This can be replicated in a group of companies where a standard operating system can then be adopted throughout.
