KAEFER’s Lean Journey

Fo­cus­ing on cus­tomer value.

It sounds ob­vi­ous when you first think about it – waste is the en­emy of ef­fi­ciency. But the more you take that think­ing to heart, the more the scale of the chal­lenge be­comes ap­par­ent. It’s called ‘lean’ think­ing. And while it’s not ex­clus­ive to KAEFER, our vis­ion' to re­duce and use re­sources more ef­fi­ciently' sits very well within the frame­work of lean and its cor­res­pond­ing way of act­ing.

Simply put, lean means cre­at­ing more value for our cli­ents with fewer re­sources. And this is achieved by gen­er­at­ing as close to zero waste as pos­sible by op­tim­ising pro­cesses and con­tinu­ously im­prov­ing them.

The idea is to waste less time, ef­fort and ma­ter­i­als. This al­lows us to achieve higher levels of health, safety and ef­fi­ciency by get­ting our ser­vices right the first time, while meet­ing all qual­ity re­quire­ments. Lean is also a corner­stone of our RED strategy, as it makes us re­cog­nised, more ef­fi­cient and dif­fer­ent.

This be­ne­fits our cli­ents as much as it be­ne­fits us. And our unique ap­proach to ap­ply­ing and liv­ing it in­volves edu­cat­ing and train­ing our em­ploy­ees to not just ‘do’ lean, but to ‘be’ lean on every step in their jour­ney. Be­cause it would be (a) waste if we did­n’t cap­it­al­ise on the ideas of all KAEFER em­ploy­ees when work­ing to­wards a com­mon goal. Lean makes this pos­sible and em­powers em­ploy­ees to con­struct­ively and cre­at­ively shape the way they work.
