Implement a Lean Culture for Profitability, Productivity, and Competitiveness

Waste is a thief. Lean eliminates waste to the greatest extent possible.

Lean manufacturing is a cultural mindset of continuous improvement that makes your business more agile, competitive, and profitable. It’s generally done by eliminating activities that don’t add value.

Polaris MEP will guide your lean journey and promote a culture where employees at all levels will be empowered to ensure quality at the source of all operations. With lean tools and training in place, your business will become more flexible, efficient, and competitive.

Half day, full day, multiple-day, and customized lean training sessions with on-site assessments and implementation services are available.

LEAN CLASSES

There are lots of ways to understand lean. We offer real-life examples and case studies, hands-on activities, cultural instruction, methodology, and lots more.

The result is a deep understanding that you can put into practice.

PILOT PROJECTS

Introducing your organization to lean principles in a small pilot project is a low-risk way to get a sense of the benefits lean can deliver.

We’ll help you pick the right pilot, equip and coach team members, and capture learnings for successful projects which can be consistently repeated.

COACHING

“Sustain” is the fifth “S” of lean manufacturing and where companies can lose momentum.

Our coaches and facilitators can help you develop lean leaders who are proactive when it comes to surfacing and solving problems, and capable of executing on lean strategic roadmaps.
