Lean Study Tour in Cape Town15 October 2019
LEAN is a systematic approach adopted within an organisation to MINIMISE and ELIMINATE WASTE in order to create flow and improve customer value. Since its inception almost 15 years ago, the CCTC has been driving the implementation of LEAN in the CFTL sector, adapting practices first developed in the automotive industry to help our members unlock efficiency and potential within their organisations.
One of the best ways to understand what a successful LEAN environment and culture looks like and learn new approaches that can be applied to your firm is to visit firms that have had success in their LEAN journey. To this end, the CCTC facilitated a study tour at Halfway Toyota Ottery on the 15th of October. Halfway Toyota Ottery’s service centre has embraced LEAN in their operations, yielding significant improvements in efficiency and productivity. This was a great opportunity to experience first-hand the benefits LEAN can bring about to optimise the productivity of employees and reduce operational waste which ultimately uplifts financial performance.
