TBM launches new business improvement system

Windturbine ECO122TBM, the consulting group founded by US-based lean manufacturing guru Anand Sharma, has announced a new system of tools and processes that it claims “ensures sustainable business improvement”.

TBM says the system connects business strategy to everyday operations with a focus on results and measurement.  The system recognises the differences between the company’s expected performance goals and the current performance situation, and prevents deviations from occurring or corrects them when they do. It helps employees at every level to make the correct decisions, which allows the management team to fully concentrate on business strategy and development.

Richard Holland, Vice President TBM Europe said the four phase system was based on TBM’s long-term experience with various management tools and hands-on customer projects.

He continued: “The TBM Management System consolidates this experience into a framework that we use for each and every customer project. Our approach is to implement sustainable process improvements and establish a problem solving culture within organisations which enables the individual employee to make quick decisions, thereby, relieving the burden from management and, in turn, causing a substantial increase in efficiency. Customers such as Alstom (pictured) and Genzyme already use the framework to markedly improve their business performance.”
