Unpublished Process Improvement Projects
Our Process Improvement Projects are designed to help you build your continuous improvement program or resolve a key issue.
From the office to the factory floor, the aim is to focus on specific area and deliver improvements with bottom line savings whilst strengthening your continuous improvement capabilities.
What are Process Improvement Projects?
Process Improvement Projects are tailored to meet our clients' needs and the issues that need resolving. They involve working directly with a team of your people over a fixed number of onsite days over a given period of time. The projects will introduce and use some of the key continuous improvement tools.

The Oneflow approach to Process Improvement Projects
A typical project will follow 6 key steps:
Diagnostic > Set Up Team > Training > Workshop > Actions > Follow Up
The structured approach involves all levels of the business across the 6 steps. Whilst Oneflow will directly provide its own expertise, your team really learn by doing and implementing the improvements themselves.
At Oneflow we believe in keeping things simple and accessible to all involved. During the project we drive the team to use data to make decisions and we use flip charts and simple action sheets to manage the project and present feedback.
