Our SpecialismsLean Management
apply the correct medicine at the correct time in the correct dosage
Many Lean implementations fail due to a lack of Lean common sense. We need to apply the correct medicine at the correct time in the correct dosage. Too little will not help the patient but equally too much will cause harm.
At Clive Whitegate we believe a true lean practitioner will possess not only a black belt in lean but also a black belt in applied common sense and understand what lean dosage to administer and in what sequence as each patient needs differ.
The combination of a lean black belt and common sense black belt means we at Clive Whitegate possess the ability to make sound practical judgments concerning every day, intricate and complex business matters and translate the vision, strategy and actions into simple implementable visually impacting solutions.
At Bemrose Booth, I recruited Dave Murray to join as Managing Director in November 2006. The blend of his down to earth style and extensive experience of change management and business turnarounds were especially appealing. Dave did not let us down. His ability to coach and engage all levels of personnel to understand and adapt to change was exceptional. This skill was demonstrated at every level of the organization; from leadership to middle management to shop floor workers. Dave recognized and selected individuals to champion change throughout the Company. He also knew the importance of combining the strengths of existing personnel while bringing in new talent to optimize the pace of change and building engagement along the way. Team building is something Dave really enjoys and does particularly well. Articulating a clear plan to the organization, building trust and respect, acting with integrity – all things Dave does naturally. I highly recommend Dave Murray, especially in a change management, turnaround environment.
