Efficiency and Service Improvement - Helping your organisation achieve its required efficiency and service levels.

Our thoughts

Through multiple business change and improvement approaches, we can help either plan, facilitate or deliver the required improvements to an organisation.

‘Lean’ consulting and ‘Service Improvement’ are crowded markets – we have extensively applied Lean tools and techniques for many years across a number of sectors, delivering significant sustained bottom line benefits to organisations.

Sora Group focuses on coaching and training experts, or ‘Change Agents’, who then lead an organisation’s journey of continuous improvement. We support with higher level diagnostic activities such as Value Stream Mapping, and can work with operational staff to standardise work areas or identify and eliminate waste. Through focussed Improvement Workshops, we can help embed the required level of Lean thinking to a business.

We help businesses to question why they need change and ensure that work is fully linked to overall objectives and its impact is measurable.

" I have worked closely with the Sora team, whilst delivering a Lean Manufacturing ethos - along with the relevant tools and techniques - into a large Food Manufacturing business.

The team are highly personable and enthusiastic individuals, and brought a wealth of expertise to bring to the table. The team were able to connect with staff at all levels of the operation and open their minds to the benefits of Lean Manufacturing concepts and ideas. "
