Enterprise - JEI Lean Transformation Partnerships

The JIT Enterprise Institute (JEI) offers a complete array of learning and action activities targeted for every level of an enterprise during every phase of their lean transformation. As lean knowledge spreads throughout a transforming organization, JEI is prepared to serve as an effective coach and facilitator to overcome obstacles and organize improvements. Our objective, at each successive stage, is always to increase the level of capability within a transforming organization to the point where we are no longer needed for them to reach their transformation goals.

Our Methodologies

First, we listen. Only after we fully understand your business & problems, do we assist you in developing a "practical" transformation path toward continuous improvement in every dimension of your organization’s business operations and culture.

Next, we prove the value of lean principles through comprehensive and effective assessment, coaching, training, learning process facilitation, in-facility engineering, and value demonstrations.

As shown in the matrix below, we then assist you in progressing along your transformation path by providing professional just-in-time enterprise flow coaching and practical, "hands-on" operational level kaizen and implementation assistance.

JEI Lean Transformation Support Methodology

Our support role ends at each progressive phase when enough knowledge has passed through our coaching to allow you to internally complete the tasks of integrating lean principles into every aspect of your organization’s business operations

LEI's Lean Transformation Support

Building on our successful transformation experience, we have developed a time & progress based strategy of coaching and introducing Toyota’s principles of an efficient lean enterprise. In a "nut shell", we encourage and help organizations to:

  • Assess their strengths & weaknesses, then develop feasible business and implementation plans to transform to lean culture and just-in-time operating principles
  • Educate a strong and influential internal change agent capable of shepherding an influential transformation support team
  • Assist in developing a lean learning program which will escalate as the breadth and depth of the transformation expands
  • Target transformation and operational actions along Toyota’s recommended path toward the organization’s designed future state by setting short term goals, then assuring immediate and continuous improvement

As described in the drawing above, the approach we coach is, first to create an organizational culture which encourages lean transformation. This culture must ensure that lean principles are inculcated through an aggressive, consistent, and long term program of continuous learning, continuous improvement, and value stream flow and operational process kaizen.
