Lean at Goodvalley – from improvement boards to a part of the management philosophy

Torben Nielsen tells about the Lean Journey:
“We started around 2010 with problem-solving improvement boards by visualizing our “Potential Improvement Points” (PIV).=> It has developed into more visual management (KPIs and various action boards)
=> into a solution to our warehouse problems without overview and control, here 5S came in as a tool
=> for decided visual rooms for managing the slaughterhouse’s production
=> for VSM for process analyses in both production and administration
=> drafting of best practice / standards and finally process confirmation / Kamishibai.”

Torben Nielsen and his colleagues they will take us into this journey. They tell how it got started and where they got their input from. They tell how they have spread the input to the whole organization through training and workshops with different Lean games to make the employees understand the way of thinking.

What is the International Lean Farming Discussion Group?

We are a group of dairy farmers and agricultural consultants interested in Lean Management.

We meet online a few times a year where we hear a farmer or advisor tell and we exchange experiences and ask each other questions. It is free to attend online meetings.

Once a year we arrange a 2.5-day study trip to a country in Europe. Here we can train Lean Management in workshops on farms, visit companies and discuss with each other. You can read about the next trip here

The group is organized by Susanne Pejstrup, Lean Farming®, and Phil Cooper, The Farm Consultancy Group

Lean Farming online

We use Zoom for our meetings. It is important that we have a direct dialogue with the participants during the meeting, so this is not the form that webinars usually have.

You will receive a link from us and if you have not tried it before, we will be happy to help. Then we recommend that we try it out a few days before the meeting. You just write it in the email.
