Previous cohort of Buckinghamshire manufacturers were extremely positive about the benefits to their business that this support gave them.
“Highly professional support that will be beneficial to many across a wide range of sectors. The practical element of the masterclass was both fun and informative and was a very simple but effective way of showing the benefits. This Lean approach will increase output leading directly to improved factory efficiency” Geoff Cooper, Imagineers Ltd
