He enabled us to create a culture of continuous improvement, with the dramatic results of reduced waiting time by 88% and increased procedural volume of 300%."

Ewan Reed
Operations Director, Technip FMC

"Technip FMC is a leading technology provider to the traditional and new energies industry. We have been on a lean/CI journey for over 10 years; our processes and systems had matured to the level of operating obeyas and a good level of visual management.

Despite our maturity, we struggled to tackle recurring problems across our value chain that were ultimately impacting our ability to consistently meet our production/customer commitments.

Darren Walsh helped us develop a deeper understanding of the thinking behind the lean tools and linkages in our visual management systems. He has helped us embed a series of management routines that have enabled us to build and maintain our standards.

Today we have improved our output across all areas of our manufacturing plant by over 50% and we are developing a culture of solving recurring problems at the right level - from senior management to operator."
