Business leaders must create future value through breakthrough business transformation or risk being left behind.

Why Business Transformation?

In order to power your organisation towards a better future, a fundamental change to how business is conducted is often required. The need to adapt and evolve in order to take control of your future holds true across all industries – none are immune.

External shocks brought on by market forces, technology and social change are major catalysts for a business beginning to struggle. Add to that insidious internal problems such as weak workforce engagement, poor execution and a lack of alignment and the situation can quickly become overwhelming. The best leaders are able to seize the problem as a banner to rally around and they recognise when the timing is right to undertake a complete business transformation.

Take Control of Your Future

Our Business Transformation services deliver a reformulation of business strategy and a re-alignment of the organisation and structure. The overriding objective throughout each of the business transformation steps is the delivery of real and tangible value to the customer.

Modernisation of the technologies and processes that deliver value is imperative – the heart and mind of every employee must be focused on providing superior value to the customers. The management system must engage people with energy and urgency and serve as a platform to keep people fully engaged while improving every person, and every process, every day.

Every Business Transformation we deliver is bespoke depending on the needs of each organisation. These programmes usually consist of several smaller phases of work that each look at a different aspect of the organisation, working in synergy to deliver powerful, sustainable results.
These phases of work can include some or all of the following modules:
  • 6s & Workplace Organisation
    Of the foundational tools and approaches associated with Lean implementation, 6S workplace organisation is probably the most widely known and, arguably, the most often misapplied. Oftentimes companies attempt to implement 6S on their own and their efforts deteriorate into imposed processes. Housekeeping becomes the objective with exclusive emphasis on audits to maintain standards.
  • Tiered Management System
    An organisation’s sustained success is dependent on continuous monitoring of its performance to ensure business goals are achieved. The LBS Tiered Management System provides a systemic integrated problem solving ecosystem, ensuring problems are continuously being resolved at all levels of the organisation by the appropriate people.
  • Process Mapping
    Process Mapping visually shows the steps of an activity and the people who are involved in carrying out each step. The mapping of the process enables groups of workers involved in certain functions to visualise their work and discuss all steps required to complete certain tasks. The result of process mapping is a reduction in the time and resources required to complete tasks.
  • Prism
    To achieve business excellence, organisational harmony is essential, and teams at all levels within your organisation should be high-performing. As business advisors, we use behavioural profiling based on the latest developments in neuroscience. Using PRISM™, we can help your teams work together more effectively and efficiently, and your HR teams to recruit the right kind of people for your business.
  • Energy Management
    Energy is typically one of the last uncontrolled costs in an organisation. Managing energy use and reducing or eliminating excess usage allows companies to reduce costs and increase competitiveness in an increasingly competitive market. Having a robust Energy Management Policy allows you to identify wastes and inefficiencies and continually improve your energy performance. At LBS we will support you in creating and improving your Energy Management systems to foster energy savings, increase performance and reduce your emissions.
  • Sales & Operations Planning
    Sales and operations planning (S&OP) is primarily a business management process. The aim of S&OP is to ensure all business functions are aligned to balance supply and demand, delivering a continuous competitive advantage to the organisation. It requires cross-organisational collaboration to create detailed forecasts for predicted sales and the certainty that the necessary resources are in place.
  • Operational Excellence Benchmarking
    Understanding the current state is necessary before embarking on any change programme. Our Benchmark Model is a best-in-class model for companies to measure themselves in areas of Organisational Excellence, providing an agreed level from which a change programme is designed.
  • Value Stream Mapping
    Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is used by organisations to define, analyse and optimize the information/materials flow essential to the whole production process. VSM includes both value-adding steps and non-value-adding steps from the customer’s standpoint. The main purpose of Value Stream Mapping is to help managers and team leaders build and perfect the flow of work and to minimise the use of resources required to deliver the work.
  • Total Preventative Maintenance
    Total Preventative Maintenance (TPM) is a company-wide, team-based effort to build quality into equipment and to improve productivity by reducing the time lost due to breakdowns. The implementation of a TPM program creates a shared responsibility for equipment that encourages greater involvement by plant floor workers. In the right environment this can be very effective in improving productivity.
  • RACI
    The purpose of the RACI chart is to make sure every task gets performed by the person responsible, and that there is an accountable decision maker for that task who will be called out if the task does not get completed. Then there are those who must be consulted and those who must be informed. Consulted refers to those who must be asked before proceeding with a task. Informed are those individuals who should be told that the task has been completed.
  • Employee Engagement
    We look at the power of the people in your organisation and the potential that exists within them, and provide the hands-on training they need to effect change. We get to grips with your culture – to make sure it is one of excellence, quality and constant improvement. Most importantly, we know that no two companies are the same, so we work with you to develop a bespoke plan of action that works in tandem with your own business strategy.
  • Leadership
    Leadership is the ability to visualise, lead, encourage and coach a group of individuals to achieve a certain goal. The success of any transformation project is dependent on the leader’s ability to align the hearts and minds to a common understanding of, not just a need for change, but that change is the only option. 90% of change management failures are due to poor leadership.
  • Strategy Implementation
    A strategy is a framework for making decisions about the future direction of an organisation. Choosing the appropriate strategy takes account of the internal and external influences on an organisation and leverages the organisation’s unique process and capabilities to deliver a competitive advantage. To be successful, strategy implementation requires planning and execution skills with clear communication.
  • Organisational Behaviour
    Understanding the underlying behaviour of the people in an organisation and the level of awareness each has about themselves is of paramount importance to successfully delivering any change programme. It is the people who deliver change. Leaders of change should understand their people and be empathetic to them in order to bring them on the change journey.
  • Leader Standard Work
    Leader Standard Work is the daily routine tasks of the leaders in an organisation that can be standardised. It is a set of actions, tools, and behaviours that are incorporated into the daily activities of leaders at all levels. LSW introduces efficiency of time and focus across the leadership team. Leader Standard Work reinforces the requirement for standardisation as part of any business transformation.
  • White Belt
    Participants who undertake the Lean Awareness course are provided with an overview of fundamental Lean thinking and the context for further engagement with Lean. White Belt training introduces the concept of Continuous Improvement which lies at the core of Lean Transformation, and provides an introduction to 6-S and Workplace Organisation, the basis for all process improvement.
  • Yellow Belt
    Problem-solving is one of the key factors to successful Lean implementation; sustaining a Lean transformation requires continuous problem-solving by everyone in the organisation. In the context of Continuous Improvement, it is a never-ending process. Yellow Belt Training includes a suite of problem-solving tools which can be employed to increase profitability, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.
  • Green Belt
    To remain competitive, companies need to be relentless in their efforts to eliminate waste from their businesses. Better internal Lean and problem-solving capability supports the waste removal effort and nurtures a culture of Continuous Improvement. The Lean Green Belt training course provides highly experienced training coupled with project mentoring to optimise the knowledge transfer from teacher to student. The course contains relevant case studies, examples and exercises which are tailored to participants’ areas of focus. The course training and project mentoring can be delivered online or on site.
  • Black Belt
    Leading Operational Excellence is our Black Belt offering and is suitable for experienced senior managers and executives wishing to gain a deep understanding of Continuous Improvement. Participants will build on their existing Lean skillset and successfully develop the capabilities required to lead their organisation’s business transformation. The course fuses an improvement in underlying processes with the capability development and leadership of people within an organisation.
  • Customer Journey Mapping
    Customer journey mapping is the process of creating a visual story of your customers’ interactions with your brand. This exercise helps businesses step into their customers’ shoes and see their business from an outside perspective. It allows companies to gain an insight into common customer pain points and to look at solutions which will meet the customer’s expectations.
