St Andrews Lean Consulting

St Andrews Lean Consulting offers a blend of bespoke training, practical support, and guidance to organisations at different stages of their growth.

Lean is best described as the continual quest for operational excellence: working to improve customer service, quality, efficiency, staff morale and internal communication and cooperation through a range of tools and initiatives. Find out more about what Lean is.

The Lean team works with all levels of staff and end customers to support them in their pursuit of process excellence within their organisation.

By providing theoretical and practical training, the team enables organisations to assess their ideas and consider their own commercial potential. Lean consultants work with teams to improve processes, transfer skills and change culture within organisations. The Lean approach is founded on an intimate understanding of business processes, governance structures and organisational behaviours.

Working with Lean

The Lean team has extensive experience of working with higher education institutes and private sector organisations around the globe, including law firms and philanthropic foundations.

Lean Consulting uses the unique St Andrews model to offer different levels of involvement from audit, through training, to Care Plan. Developed here in St Andrews over the past 10 years, and tried and tested in different industries, the St Andrews model is an eight-step approach to process improvement. Throughout each stage there is a transfer of knowledge and experience of Lean, with the aim that all members of the project team will continue to implement Lean in their daily work.
