Business-improvement techniques (BIT) complement a wide range of work environments, promoting lean skills and effective teamwork across all levels and types of organisations, optimising operational processes, improving productivity, efficiency and net profit.
Derived from the successful approaches of leading manufacturers including Toyota, Nissan and Honda, tools such as 5S/5C, Six Sigma and value stream mapping can bring about cost savings and quality improvements in any process-orientated work environment.
Businesses of all sizes can use the principles of lean enterprise to help eliminate waste, reduce costs and boost productivity. The benefits of achieving process and quality improvements in the workplace are open to private and public companies across all sectors, including areas such as commerce and healthcare alongside traditional industry employers.
BIT qualifications are an ideal complement for job-specific qualifications. They help learners to apply a range of methodologies to achieve sustainable advances in working practices.
