Grounded in a practical approach to business development, we work with your business to identify and develop achievable and sustainable solutions. Our approach centres around building and maintaining relationships with our clients to understand their needs and deliver results.

The Lean team at HTK Group has a wealth of experience running successful businesses in NZ, Australia, Southeast Asia and Japan. Our Lean team is supported by our business advisory team, which provides ancillary support throughout our engagements with clients. We have extensive knowledge and experience and relish the opportunity to share this with our clients.

Lean Service Delivery Methodologies Lean is a collaborative process, so we work closely with clients and their teams to build buy-in throughout the organisation. We want everyone to see the success and benefits of Lean so that they independently look for more.

Our goal is to encourage and implement a culture of continuous and ongoing improvement by guiding our clients through the journey – educating, sharing key techniques and showing success. Our first step is getting to know our clients, their business and current goals. Using our experience and methodologies we take a business through our process, investigating key areas throughout the supply chain to maximise workflow – from customers’ orders through to finished product and sales. 

Communication is key throughout the journey. Together we will take business goals; break them down to specific, easy-to-follow project plans; then allocate resources (creating resources if needed) and timeframes – all while generating buyin. Each project plan can have a client lead, or ‘project champion’, monitoring and encouraging progress. Their exposure will be measured by our Lean team to ensure they are learning with the right levels of support and challenges.
