What if you could grow profits fourfold and your capital value by five times?
A well-established shop-fitting firm with a £6.7 million turnover was struggling to make decent profits. This was despite having an excellent client base and a long track record of superb quality. In view of the problems, the owner asked TBD to introduce a Hoshin Kanri team based planning programme. Within a few days, the management team planned and instigated twenty-six improvement projects across all functions and areas in the business. This meant rolling out improvements in sales, sales order processing, estimating, factory production, purchasing, project management, transportation costs, IT and site installation.
After adopting Hoshin Kanri, profits jumped from £120,000 pa to £962,000 pa in the first eighteen months. Subsequently average profit has risen from £141,000 pa to £602,844 pa for the three years post Hoshin Kanri. As a result of this sustained profit increase the capital value of the business jumped 500%.
A large part of this success was due to a healthy improvement in hourly productivity per employee of 51%. To put it another way, the firm experienced a 34% increase in sales handled by only a 16% increase in staff.
