LEAN is working. Not just for our clients, but for us as well.
Simply put, LEAN means creating more value for our clients as well as for our teams. This is achieved by generating as close to zero waste as possible by optimising processes and continuously improving them.
The idea is to waste less time, effort, and materials. We call getting things right the first time heading towards ‘True North’. LEAN Site Management guarantees that the right materials are at the right place at the right time, in the right amount and right quality. It is not about reinventing the wheel, but rather about optimising a proven concept and ensuring that the wheel runs smoothly without any interruptions. Which means employing simple measures such as planning and performance management – thinking about what to do before, during and after a shift and how to achieve agreed goals. This allows us to achieve higher levels of health, safety, and efficiency by getting our services right the first time, while meeting all quality requirements.
LEAN benefits our clients as much as it benefits us. Our unique approach to applying and living it involves educating and training our employees through our Lean Development Programme to not just ‘do’ LEAN, but to ‘be’ LEAN on every step of the way. Because it would be (a) waste if we didn’t capitalise on the ideas of all KAEFER employees when working towards a common goal. LEAN makes this possible and empowers employees to constructively and creatively shape the way they work. The reward is not just an easier and less wasteful workflow, but also an investment in the personal development of each individual at KAEFER.
