Training
TXM Training at The Laminex Group – Cheltenham

TXM Training first session a huge success!

TXM Training has finished its first round of workshops from The Leadership for Operational Excellence Program. The first being the Lean Leadership Introduction. This workshop was aimed at teaching attendees how to align Leadership, Lean Know-how and Culture to drive sustainable change in their organisations.

The workshops are facilitated by our capable Senior Lean Practitioners, Brent Johnstone facilitated the New South Wales and Queensland sessions with our Senior Lean Practitioner David Jaksa taking the reigns for Victoria.

Both practitioners used their past experiences as examples, adding their own spin with experiences they had whilst working for their respective organsations as Lean Professionals.

Attendees learnt a range of techniques and methods from identifying waste, the role of the Lean Leader, Cultural Barriers to Lean Change and Transformation. It gave attendees a common understanding of Lean and Operational Excellence helping them understand the core concepts and preparing them for the next session around a Lean Manufacturing Simulation.

The general consensus from attendees was that the first session was very valuable, giving attendees a new way to think about situations and how they can implement continuous improvement transformations in their businesses

TXM Training hosted workshops in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Our Victorian session was hosted by The Laminex Group – Cheltenham this session included a site tour of their operation highlighting the processes and efficiency gains from Lean implementation.

The workshop was created for teaching people with little to no knowledge of Lean about the standard methodologies used to create a system of continuous improvement in their organsation. It was designed to be the first of six workshops teaching the foundations of Lean.

Anthony Teaching Lean Thinking at Ability Works Australia

Here at TXM Lean Solutions we take great pride in helping organisations improve and grow, helping them along in their Lean journey. We work across a wide variety of industries, organisations and companies providing Lean Consulting and Training.

Working with TXM has given me the opportunity to work with some great community centric organisations on improvement projects that really help people in need or the wider community on a whole.

Ability Works Australia is one of those organisations I have had the great pleasure of helping on a pro-bono basis. I helped Ability Works with the review of manufacturing methods, optimised space management, continual waste reduction, improved crewing decisions, increased productivity tempo and maximised output results.

I also helped facilitated live training sessions combining theory and practical exercises around 5S principles, Leadership and Lean Thinking for all facets of the organisation.

Being able to see the improvements happen right in front of me and seeing the results immediately gives me a great sense of pride knowing the community is continually improving. I had a great time helping Ability Works apply Lean Methodologies across their processes and helping them prepare for their digital expansion.

“The tools applied to our process lines and workflow lay-outs were invaluable, preparing us for a new growth phase and the expansion of our Digital Technology unit.”
Tamsin Ashdown – General Manager, Ability Works Australia
