Lean Startup & Customer Segment Identification
Are your costs too high and are your margins shrinking?
Are your customers dissatisfied with your products or services and you are losing market share? Do you find it difficult to respond to changes in technology?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should consider transforming your organization to a team-based structure that is focused on serving the customer rather than optimizing a process. The word transformation or lean transformation is often used to characterize a company moving from an old way of thinking to lean thinking. It requires a complete transformation on how a company conducts business. In a LEAN organization the focus of management thinking changes from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through the value creation process directly to the customer.
We will guide you through this journey of creating an organization where LEAN is a state of mind that is present in every aspect of the business and every member of the organization is focused on serving the customer.
The late great Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” If you do not have a clear vision of where you want to lead your organization, your company will likely be heading towards failure.
We will assist you in developing a clear and concise Strategic Plan that reflects your vision. We will bring to you the tools and the process to objectively analyze your current situation and then we will work with you to chart the course forward. You will then be equipped to articulate your vision to your customers, your investors and your employees.
