Our activities

  • Recovery missions  – helping 1st and 2nd tier organisations to make rapid turnarounds from loss to profit.  With a particular approach to ensuring first survival and then a medium term and long term strategy of thriving in this competitive market, GENEO can help distressed companies make rapid turnarounds to restore confidence in their customers
  • DFMEA / PFMEA programmes – GENEO can help organisations structure and launch FMEA programmes.
  • Re-balance of complex optional work on multi platform assembly lines 
  • Providing Lean Leadership training both in the Lean Leadership Academy and the Process Excellence Leadership Academy (PELA) for OEMs in the UK and Europe.  The Lean Leadership Academy is designed to re-engineer Lean thinking in leadership to improve and sustain operational excellence.  The course is designed to shift away from a tool based paradigm to one of systems and leadership behaviours.  
  • Providing interim management support for 1st tier suppliers
  • Value Stream Mapping and diagnostics – Use our principle based diagnostic to understand where you are on your Lean journey or engage GENEO to help generate a value stream map on key products to establish where the value lies in your process. 
  • 90 Day programmes of improvement – injecting velocity into improvement activities to deliver results using 90 Day Plans can be key to meeting your strategic aims for the business.  GENEO can help your teams structure their improvement activities to make a rapid impact. 
  • Lean operating system implementation – figuring out the operating system for the organisation and how Lean integrates with or replaces existing systems is key to providing clarity of purpose for leadership.
  • Capability build – building internal capability for the organisation in order to deploy beyond pilots and create a sustained ‘way of working’ is key to the success of any Lean transformation.  GENEO’s Lean Practitioner Programme provides the momentum an organisation needs to change the DNA of the company.
  • TPM programmes  – GENEO has a track record in reducing the maintenance burden in operations.  20% reductions achieved in shutdowns, maintenance inspections and PM activities in processing plants and fleet assets.  
  • Problem solving – A3 problem solving campaigns across the value chain generate a level of capability in first line leadership to resolve systemic issues with permanent countermeasures.
  • 1st line supervisor training – deploy boot-camps for first line leadership in order to gain awareness of the Lean principles, problem solving, and performance management through short interval control.
  • Hoshin / Policy Deployment – GENEO can help you turn a vision for your company into a fully measurable deployment using x tables and 90 Day plans.
