How it Works
Once you reach out to us, Operations/Lean consulting with Frontline Training Solutions occurs in these 5 simple steps:
We’ll work with you, in your space, to gain a thorough understanding of your needs and objectives. This is a partnering step that might be a meeting or two, or might take the form of embedding in your company for a time.
Working with you and armed with all the knowledge we gain from exploring and all the experience we have in finding solutions, we’ll create the best list of solution ideas we can.
The next step is to make a plan, cast the vision, map the roll-out, and get ready to execute.
Once Steps 1 – 3 are complete, we’ll work to understand any knowledge gaps that might exist and work to teach and/or train appropriately to close the gap.
We can step aside and let you execute the plan or walk beside and execute with you.
