Lean Management System Software

Let's Unpack the Problem

  • Customer orders and appointments
  • Financial and payroll records
  • Order management
  • Inventory management
  • Asset management

You use software in all the above areas...

why are you using Excel and PowerPoint files for your Lean Management System?

You are managing numerous corporate locations, all with different understanding and maturity within Lean Six Sigma, and you are holding your “Lean operating system” together by email mandates and Excel files. Additionally, it’s your responsibility to not only sustain process focus but deliver year over year financial improvements.

Often our clients don't need consulting help, but rather the right tools to be successful.

Compass is a suite of tools that allow measurement, standardization, governance, audits, and learning to occur within a Lean Management System that is customized to your business. You select the tools that you need and allow Compass to do the rest.

Further, a corporate officer can quickly see which facilities are growing, learning, and improving without ever stepping on-site.

What are the Objectives?

  • Frequent visual updates on how each facility is sustaining and improving their business processes. 
  • Measurements that span the important areas that you need to focus on. Strategic alignment. Financial savings. Training for problem solving and leadership. And the most important – and often overlooked topic – process confirmation audits.
  • An automated report in your inbox each week that shows you participation, by week and location, for the critical tools.
  • Better ways to transfer best-demonstrated practices across the business
