As a growing SME, Eco Surv planned to engage the whole workforce on the RKMS Lean programme, as they wanted to develop a lean culture in all aspects of the business. This was a planned strategy to compliment the Energy and Renewables sector that they serve.

The team members took part across the following areas:

  • The Senior Management Team and Directors
  • Financial Management
  • Design and Development Office
  • Sales Team
  • Operations Support
  • Quality & H&S

As the company created sub teams to work on a range of improvement projects as they worked through the apprenticeship programme a range of improvement projects were developed including.

  • Streamlining the Onboarding process
  • Improving operational planning to maximise customer support & income.
  • Improving technology for customer support and increasing operational capacity
  • Developing improved support data to improve customer interfaces.
  • Improving the design and development process
  • Creating new processes for improved financial management and strategic decision making.

Tangible benefits were recorded in excess of £100,000 across the range of projects which represented almost 15 per cent of the financial turnover at the time.

Cashflow also improved significantly, and all this allowed the company to re-invest for substantial growth as they bring new innovations to the marketplace.
