How We Work
We roll up our sleeves, guide learning, challenge thinking and get teams focused on practical outcomes.
SBF works in partnership alongside you to transfer knowledge that will create sustainable improvements for your business. To do so, we operate a model of Specialists Consultants, Regional Improvement Champions (RIC’s) and a Specialist Support team to deliver improvement programs, projects and support.
Our Specialist Consulting team members collectively have over forty-five years domestic and international business management experience. Over twenty-five years’ experience in facilitating and implementing Lean systems.
They include former customers of SBF and have acquired an intimate, first-hand knowledge of the SBF Proven Process, leading teams and adopting change. Their ability to see both sides of the partnership has proven to be a positive combination. They understand the complexities of having to deliver daily operational demands whilst implementing Lean at the same time.
This increased awareness translates into consulting programs and projects that are more empathetic to the needs of team members, delivery that is less theoretical and a more realistic focus on delivering ‘real’ business results that matter.
Our Regional Improvement Champion’s provide a critical service and are instrumental in the delivery of successful projects. They provide ongoing project support and follow-up on progress and actions between each specialist visit. They ensure project remains focused and ensure forward momentum is maintained.
Each Regional Improvement Champion has between five to fifteen years previous business experience. They are selected for their non-Lean specialty, their attitude and their ability to engage and converse positively with clients at all levels of a business.
