Fairweather’s Nursery Lean Scheme

Having a good tidy up..

Over eight years ago we were one of the first nurseries in the country to take part in working office lean before and afterwith Neil Fedden on a pilot scheme in improving operations on the nursery through Lean.

It is always good to re-visit and re-assess systems so some of our team are studying for a Business Improvement Techniques NVQ with a focus on lean. The ‘lean review’  techniques learnt will be used to look at our potting , dispatch and office areas to see where we can improve on processes, to make work flow more effect.

You always have to start somewhere so the office team decided it was time to sort out the stationary cupboard as a test run- here you can see the before and after results.
