Testimonials​

"We are introducing KaizApp across all our locations to strengthen, re-launch and accelerate our global Lean program. We had come to realise that improvement (Lean) is all about the thinking process and technique - which KaizApp is specifically designed to develop. For us, KaizApp has accelerated the development of improvement skills, provided visibility of all improvements globally and increased the capacity of our coaches to facilitate more breakthroughs."
Global Head of Lean
Food and Drink sector
”We chose KaizApp to digitise all our improvements because of its ease of use and emphasis on the thought process behind improvement. Previously, our people found A3 improvement too difficult, which locked us out of many breakthroughs and innovations. With KaizApp, we’re able to develop effective A3 thinking and improvement globally, even with remote coaching. Our leaders can also engage with improvements, ensuring faster delivery and better alignment with goals.”

Sample Case Studies

Major food manufacturer delivers 43% more cost reduction

Mask Group

With all improvement information in one place (KaizApp), remote coaching support and cross-site collaboration have continued very effectively through the Covid pandemic. Improvement owners and leaders have both seen major admin time savings, and delivered substantially more cost reduction.

Many of the 100+ manufacturing sites globally were too small to employ their own Lean specialists and even the larger ones could not easily demonstrate a financial return from most of their improvements. Major challenges included how to search and share all improvements globally, support and coach improvement remotely and ensure all efforts were prioritised by potential value.

 

The group Operational Excellence function implemented KaizApp into a first site and quickly realised that with the status of actions, plans and everything instantly visible they could effectively coach improvement from afar with live video. Faster learning of structured improvement thinking also occurred, guided by KaizApp and site-based managers could easily translate operational improvements into business cases.

 

As KaizApp rolled out to further sites, managers frequently presented their own improvements to each other and to other sites directly from KaizApp without any time spent writing presentations. This drove both knowledge sharing and healthy competition.

Automotive group develops capability to
deliver 55% more performance improvements

Mask Group (1)

With one simple improvement process for all functions and a 50% increase in coaching capacity using KaizApp, €1.5m of improvements were delivered in just 1 year – equivalent to 11% of turnover and sufficient to return the business to profitability.

The group, operating across 5 sites, was running at a loss and facing possible closure, Despite a few pockets of Lean excellence, they had struggled to develop the widespread staff capability required to deliver breakthrough performance improvements with the ROI potential needed to make a real difference. The key challenge was to identify many more of these and prioritise them for efficient delivery. It was also vital to keep the C-suite and shareholder up to date to instill confidence.



With the help of a single external Lean consultant using KaizApp, 23 improvements were identified live on the 1st site on Day 1. This was later repeated on a 2nd site. The improvement program was managed entirely through KaizApp; including ongoing prioritisation, ownership, action management, progress versus plan tracking and risk mitigation. Improvers received vital insights and coaching by presenting their improvements directly from KaizApp; resulting in rapid skills transfer and widespread capability development.

 

The resulting financial improvements were transparently tracked in KaizApp and seamlessly reported to the C-suite. All improvement information is now in KaizApp with images, videos, files, and financials searchable and shared enterprise-wide; while managers, practitioners and lean leaders are now delivering results in up to 20% less time.

Multi-billion services group achieves profit improvement plan

Mask Group (2)
KaizApp has made it easy to convert improvement project KPIs into financials. Executives view dashboards of time phased financial impacts (eg EBITDA) to gauge progress anywhere in the group. Improvement owners naturally focus on improvements with sufficient financial returns, while cross-site collaboration is now the norm.
Improvement practitioners and operational managers oversee improvement across a workforce of over 5,000 staff in 10 locations, spanning both back office processing and call centers. Improvement was difficult to deliver since information was highly fragmented and inefficiently managed, preventing collaboration across locations. Key challenges included the need to focus people on the right improvements with the greatest financial impact, to instantly understand status and to report upwards.

Initial training on a pilot site had each manager work through a first performance improvement using KaizApp. Thereafter, all active improvements were added to KaizApp including plans, actions, project KPIs and financials. The site leader then used KaizApp as the basis for weekly one to one meetings with managers; who also presented their improvements and progress monthly, directly from KaizApp.

As KaizApp was rolled out to more sites, operational excellence heads were able to effectively coach employees through a structured and guided improvement process, even while working from home; and also to track progress remotely – especially the profit improvement plan. The time savings by all concerned were put back into delivering yet more improvements. Upward reporting to executives was greatly simplified, connecting them directly to improvement project details and owners. This enhanced visibility allowed more timely support and/or corrective actions to ensure that the group profit improvement plan was met.
