If you’re an owner or president at a manufacturing company who wants to rise above the chaos of daily activities to stabilize and grow your business, come to this workshop.
You will experience a shift in how you think about your business, and how you operate moving forward. It doesn’t matter what you make – food, accessories, machined parts – when you use the Continuous Improvement model to inform decision making, growth and stabilization occur. We’ll help you see above the chaos to build a stronger, more successful company.
Come to this workshop if…
- Your manufacturing costs are too high due to inefficiencies in your production process
- You are struggling to increase sales and profitability
- You want to take your business to the next level but aren’t sure how
- You find it difficult to make strategic decisions for your company amidst the daily chaos of running a small business
- You feel overworked and under the gun on a regular basis
Don’t just take our word for it – one client says:
Coming into the class I knew I wanted a change in my small business. In fact, I knew I needed a change. Orders were coming in and then chaos would ensue and our old process was really stressful so our burnout rate was high. Through the workshops, we were able to identify all the “Low Hanging Fruit” and begin working on some necessary changes to manage inventory and create a streamlined process so we don’t have to re-think every order. The on-site visits were extremely helpful in aiding the change. – Past Attendee

Past attendees say
“Definitely worth the time. The course facilitates team dynamics– shared conversation and learning, both within your own company and with the cohort. The instructors ‘get it.’ They were people who had actually worked in manufacturing. And the interaction with other businesses was really valuable.” – Past Attendee

What kind of skills can you expect to learn?
- Grasp the foundations of a Continuous improvement business model – what a CI model is, what it means for your company, and how to operate with one.
- Harness the power of marketing to achieve top line growth. We’re not talking about hiring expensive agencies here. We’re talking about small, achievable shifts that you can make to move the needle towards more sales, better leads, greater profits.
- Learn how to empower your employees to solve problems. Once you implement these strategies you will be on your way to building a problem-solving workforce. Even if you only have a couple employees, the actions to take to improve your company will come from your employees. Two heads are better than 1 when it comes to improving your business processes.
- Understand the actionable data to be found in your company financial statements. Discover new opportunities for growth and potential revenue streams. You can’t save your way to profits, but you definitely learn how to read your statements with a Continuous Improvement lens. If you don’t have a P&L statement, we will help you get this in place.
